Highly rate this hostel. Everyone is welcoming and are like a big family. Hostel is clean and tidy with daily routines. Drink vouchers are a big part of the hostel which are available most nights. Ring up and book a room!!

Friendly staff and lovely long term guests, I checked in with a friend and we stayed in a female dorm for a week, the girls were absolutely lovely! I would definitely stay there again if I go back to Perth - very close to the CBD only a 5-10 minute walk

Great atmosphere, cool staff, awesome manager! He helped us with everything you can imagine. Only thing I didn't like too much were the showers with only curtains. The bathroom also could have been cleaner.

Bambu Backpackers is one of the best hostels for living and enjoy. The manager is easy-going and open-minded like the Backpackers generally who live in the hostel. And every day, you can benefit of some privileges like 150$ voucher to drink in the Game, Mustang or Brass Monkey and the next day you can play in a tournament of pool...

Good vibes all the time. Free bar tabs most nights. Awesome staff who will help you wherever they can. If you looking to meet fun people and stay near all the bars then this is ur hostel. Everyone is able to become closer and socialise easily because of all the activities on every night.

Perfect place for having great nights out. In the middle of Perth party district with a couple of hundert dollars of drink vouchers over the week. A big social area with ping pong table, pool table and two big tv screens to hang over in peace after your night out ;) Good system with food boxes and walk in fridge!...

Reviewed 12 May 2016 via mobile

The place is not particularly clean but its alright for a hostel. Its dark and not very friendly. My bed was on the top and it was very difficult to go in, because it was on the top of a double bed and there were lockers just in front of the ladder so i couldnt use it. I was disappointed.

We stayed here for five days and found the hostel very welcoming. They provide discount for neighbouring bars and clubs. The staff were helpful and friendly. They do have a few semi permanent residnets, but we found them nice and chatty (they were fellow backpackers - not homeless fok). The kitchen is spacious and they have excellent facilities for storing...
