Don't expect any courtesy when it comes to "late checkout". The hostel was pretty empty, nevertheless I couldn't leave any minute late otherwise I would lose the key deposit or have to pay for another day. Shame, very greedy. Sometimes you become blind if you think only about the money. Anyway, even being a very old building, the elevator was...

Hi Thanks for the feedback, it was explained that the reason we could not give late check out was that someone was booked into that room.

This hostel is huge, but it still clean. Room are pretty spacious but can be warm(fortunately we had fans). The location is great, the wifi is only available in the courtyard. The kitchen is ok but can get really warm. I did not stay a long time but I don't have bad memories. This hostel is big but clean and...

Good points - free wifi even though it's only in the reception area. Facilities for printing, scanning and use of computers. Toilets and showers excellent - there is a cubicle before the shower tray so you can keep your valuables and clothes with you when showering and everything very clean. Lots of places to eat nearby. Poor points - customer...

We stayed here for one night before going to the airport. It was the cheapest in Perth for a private room. The bed was comfy and the communal kitchen and bathroom areas were big and clean. The kitchen was long and narrow so might get crowded at dinner times. Everyone seemed to abide by the rules that the hostel had...

So I live 3 hours from Perth, but seeing as I had a Perth license I couldn't stay. I asked if having a picture of an international passport would suffice, and they assured me it would. After showing my international passport the owner said she would speak to me outside then locked me out? I was terribly confused considering they...

Myself and my partner only stayed here for one night, before going to the airport. We booked a double private room, the room was very clean, but basic.
