It does have the potential to be a really good backpackers. The venue is large and has character with a swimming pool and a cinema room, pool tables and a bar with reasonably priced drinks. It is well located with the CBD close by and the bars and restaurants walking distance. However... that is where the positives stop. The place... More

Stayed a few weeks here. Hostel is clean, with good bathrooms, big kitchen and nice rooms. No problems atall while here and staff are friendly. Central location, on the edge of 'Northbridge' (the bars and nightclubs area) and only 10 min walk to city centre.

It has been a while since I stayed in a backpackers and I have to say that this experience was better than I expected. The rooms did smell a bit like workbooks but I you got used to it. I was impressed with the clean bathrooms and the facilities available including kitchen, laundry and bar! I would definitely stay here... More

I know Oz has lots of creepy crawly things and I know they are more than likely gunna get in to places they shouldn't, but this hostel is the most grubby disgusting vile horrible place I have ever stayed at. After 2 sessions at reception asking the staff to spray our double room enough was enough. We managed 5 nights... More

Having tried other hostels in Perth, I can honestly say this place was the best. The staff are very accomodating, there's always a good atmosphere, they have amazing RAIN SHOWERS and the kitchen is very clean. The theatre (free) is great to have and they show a few films every night. I expected the pool to be dirty but it's... More

I stayed here for 3 weeks in March 2013 and will be going back after finishing my regional. It's 10 mins walk to everything you could need and due to the size you meet a ton of great people. The rooms do vary but the majority if them are spacious and clean. I was out in a tiny 4 bed... More

Ignore the bad reviews, If you are a backpacker / traveller seeking a hostel to meet great people travelling then this hostel is definitely for you! I have stayed in the underground for over three months whilst working in Australia, it became a home away from home! It's a perfect location at just a 15 minute walk from the city... More

Well to start off I'd like to say ignore all these bad reviews on here, we only booked into the underground for 4 days originally & after one day decided to extend our stay and ended up staying here over 3 months! The rooms are good, the kitchen is big & well equipt, the BBQ's are awesome, the cinema room... More
