The Rottnest Island Hostel is a great low budget option for guests. 

The hostel has 50 beds (including family rooms and dormitories), a fully equipped kitchen and a lounge with television. Communal ablution facilities are available. Hostel beds are supplied with bed linen but guests will need to bring their own towels or hire them by contacting Rottnest Island Reservations prior to your arrival.

The hostel family rooms have recently had an upgrade to include a small fridge, wardrobe and shelf storage facility. There is also additional outside seating for those using the communal kitchen and BBQ areas.
