The staff is amazing, very nice and available people, at... More

I stayed two months in this backpacker it was really nice. You can met different people and the staff is very welcoming. I had my own single room. The bathroom and the toilets are separated for women and men. There also a large kitchen, two large TV rooms and a garden. The lodge was very clean. Near the City Perth... More

The only great thing about this hostel are the people that you meet there, other than that the staff is very unfriendly if you need help or ask for something they moan as if it's not their job when in fact it actually is! Everything besides the bathrooms is dirty! And unpleasant! The bathrooms were pretty clean I cannot complain... More

While this place is more than reasonable in cost, you have a cleaning who has no problem showing her disapproval, whether she likes you or not. You have the manager, who walks around with an attitude and even though you pay to be there, I experienced they thought I had to be grateful rather than a paying customer. You pay... More

I stayed here for eight weeks and it is excellent, cheap single room accommodation. Large kitchen with own shelves in cupboards and fridge and good sized tv room. I had a single room which was large with a built in wardrobe and large desk. The only downside was the road which with the bus stop outside could be very noisy... More

We stayed in Townsend Lodge five nights. Perth is a very expensive city and this hostel is the cheapest accomodation. We arrived at 10 pm and we had not cash but there wasn't credit card service in the hostel, we had to look for cash machine because you have to pay before to see the room and give 50 dollars... More

Being a solo traveller, finding a hostel with single rooms was not that easy, and all the prices in Perth seem to be particularly expensive. At 45 dollars a night this place is average. Quite easy to find as it is fairly central (although still a 15 minute walk to the train station). I arrived very early in the morning,... More

While it will never be mistaken for a luxury establishment, Townsend Lodge does provide secure, cheap accommodation right in the Perth CBD. Communication in relation to my resevation was prompt and correct. The room I stayed in was quiet and clean. There doesn't appear to be very many showers and toilets for the shared facility rooms but it wasn't a... More

The hostel is pretty dirty, and VERY noisy! I stayed in the main block, where the kitchen, reception and everything is located. The noise from the kitchen echoes throughout the block, making it so hard to sleep without ear plugs! If you're lucky enough to stay in the other block (not connected to main building) then it's very quiet. I... More

The twin rooms are so extremly small (and dirty), I just cannot believe it! There is no real wardrobe in a twin room, just two beds, a commode and between every piece ca. 20 cm of space. Two people cannot stand in that room at the same time! Facilities are old and tacky, rooms at the frontside are very loud... More
