Stayed with my family (husband and two children aged 6 and 12) on Australia Day! It was a last minute booking to stop on our way home from a holiday down south. The checkin staff were super helpful, allowing us to check in early. The accommodation was clean and functional and we

This is definitely a cut above the rest. Well run, clean, orderly and very friendly. I didn’t even feel like I was at a backpackers. Would definitely stay again. I was very impressed. Well done guys!!

The hostel was quiet for a backpackers, which was great. Very close from the beach and from restaurants, etc. Friendly staff. We stayed in a double room, neat and comfy. The bathrooms are a bit rudimentary but clean.

Not recommended, the person in charge of the hostel worries more about the hostel's money than to help the traveler. Faced with a problem, it stops responding and disappears as if it were a ghost. Do not let him, because of the desperation to renew the visa, lie to you as he did

Dear Jonathon, Thank you for your feedback and we are disappointed you did not have a great experience. Please tell the whole story however. Wander Inn posted that we knew of work in the area. You applied for the job and were successful. You checked in and paid for 1 week and started a job. Your employer had some problems and you had no more work. Wander Inn provides accommodation for you. Wander Inn has no control over your employer. We did contact the employer on your behalf but the employer had no more work for you. It is unfortunate that you have left it too late to renew your 2nd Visa and we feel sorry for you but we can not provide employment for you. You need to understand that we provide accommodation. Your comment about not helping you, remember there is staff on reception 7 days a week and we gave you a pair of work boots to help you because you kept telling us your desperate story All the best for the future and sorry again that your stay in Australia is ending soon.

Very bad if you calculate the price per night/week for the room and comfort. They promise me money back if I had left before the end of the week but they didn’t give me nothing back, around 120$. It’s

Dear Guest, Sorry you had to leave Bunbury and Wander Inn early and thank you for your feedback. Please remember it was your decision to take a special weekly deal where you received a much cheaper price per night and this weekly price is non-refundable. Your plans changed and then you wanted to change your accommodation booking. Wander Inn policy for non-refundable special deals is comparable to any other accommodation provider in the industry. You were never promised any money back at any stage and we offered you to continue your stay at Wander Inn but your plans changed and you decided to leave early. Thank you again for staying at Wander Inn and best of luck in the future.
