Located approximately 10 min. on food away from the main-pub/restaurant street, this hostel offers spacious dorms and a huge kitchen/common-area. That's the good side. The beds in the dorm were ok, the mattress uncomfortable. The e-plug for the bed was unusable due to it's shape. Few bathrooms. I only counted two mans-toilets and showers for a few dorms. Cleanliness is... More

This place looks a little dated but looking at reviews of other places in beats them by miles and it has nothing a fresh kick of paint and a little TLC in some areas can't handle. It definitely has a nice vibe here; I'd stay here again and recommend to fellow travellers looking for a good Perth stay. Note: the... More

When I arrived in this hostel there was no one at the reception. After a bit of a wait someone showed up and I could check in. This person had no idea how much I still had to pay, so I had to look it up myself. Besides that the room was very clean and the amenities aswell. The kitchen... More

Seemed like a hub for long-stay visitors / those travelers who are working in Australia. As a one night visitor this atmosphere was a bit intimidating. Quite expensive for what was offered. Didn't feel like the cleanest place I've stayed. It seems that some guests were offered free wi-fi while others were not? The owner (I think?) was very nice... More

I stayed here for 6 nights. The owner is friendly and very helpful. My room was private room for two with bunk bed. Even though the room is small but that was just enough for me and my friend to lay down and keep our things while we were out. The place is good to hang around and met new... More

Really friendly backpackers with a great sense of community amongst the people staying there. It's small and basic but I loved every minute of staying there and made some life long friends while I was there. Great find.

Loved this place so much that after each tour we did on the West Coast, we kept going back! Good place to meet people and have drinks, but also chill and watch a movie and get a good nights sleep. Really clean toilets and kitchen too.

We had pre booked this hostel when we booked our flights. We had been told we had a private room, yet when we arrived at 2am we were shown to a very messy, hot room with 4 people in there ( which turned out to be 3 guys and a girl). Bit of a strange atmosphere and we felt like... More

“The private room is at the back which is closer to the back door. Less noise from the main hall but closer to the male bathroom.”
