The best hostel in Perth! I have lived in that hostel for 3 month and half and i met a lot of wonderful people! The hostel seems quiet but is always alive! Free wifi, free breakfast and free bbq on sunday, and close to the city and northbridge...i miss the hat!

The Witch's Hat is one of the finest backpackers I've ever stayed. Well organized and very clean. It might be a bit more expensive than other hostels, but it is well worth the money. I ended up staying here for about a month in both a dorm and double room. It's small and cozy with a nice outdoor bbq area.... More

I've stayed in a few backpackers and lodges and this is by far the best AND the best value for money! It's very clean and both staff and lodgers are super friendly and helpful. Highly recommend as a place to stay - whether for just a few nights or for long-term. Also, free BBQ on Sundays? Absolutely! :-)

The first thing you see is the giant cone like roof where the hostel takes it's name from. A really cool feature. There's a large parking area at the front of the hostel with security gates so your car is safe. There's also a bench out front and a smoking area. When you enter the building through the big wooden... More

This is a nice hostel, neat clean rooms close to the heart of Perth City. Comfortable beds and I was never waiting for a toilet or shower. Whilst everything in it was not brand new, it was all very clean, well maintained and tidy. On street parking was readily available if the private car park out the front was full.... More

The atmosphere is relaxed, the people staying there are quiet and friendly, and the staff are dedicated to making you feel right at home. The shared areas such as the kitchen and bathrooms were all kept spotless. The location is great - close enough to the... More

My mum and I stayed here for a week, quite a nice backpackers hostel. It has a friendly atmosphere with polite helpful staff, free breakfast and wi-fi available. Good location, in close proximity to central city and just a 5 to 10-minute-walk to the nearest CAT bus stop which is very convenient for us. The hostel is clean, we had... More
