Stayed as a traveling tradesman. Being greeted at the front desk by friendly staff after a long days work priceless. Will return everytime I'm in perth. Coolibah backpackers had a great vibe about. In my opinion its generated by great service from the front desk ;)

I have been staying at Coolibah lodge casually for almost a year now. It a very clean, reasonably priced, is ten minutes walk from Northridge (lot of bars, restaurants eff...) and 20 minutes from city centre. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful -making it a home away from home. Not really a party hostel, although alcohol is available on site... More

One of the cleanest backpackers I have ever seen. But they start to clean at 5am so we woke up always to early except at the weekend. The breakfast is good for a backpackers and the kitchen supplys everything you need. We just met nice staff and they were really helpful if you need something. Not to far from the... More

Hi Melissa, If there was a misunderstanding then I am sorry but you were advised that check-in is not before 1-2 pm but we would be happy to store your luggage or you could just wait in the TV area or go and walk around in the city. I am a little confused about you thinking we would rip you... More

I spent a night at Coolibah lodge and had a good experience. The conditions of the interiors aren't too flash, but decent, the atmosphere quite relaxed and peaceful. Licensed venue, so you can buy alcohol on the premises. It's located in Perth's Chinatown so there's a big number of oriental groceries' shops and restaurants, cheaper than the average Perth eatery.... More

Definitely one of the best hostel I've ever been! Maybe 10-15 minutes walk (easy also If you've got heavy baggage) to the CBD, situated in Northbridge cool area also for the nightlife, is anyway one of the closest hostel to the airport. The reception is open 24h and late check-in is available. I felt like the manager really care about... More

I stayed here a few years ago and it was a breath of fresh air, really inspirational! I was coming over from the UK and wanted a break after years of misery (called marriage) and I met a lot of fantastic people at Coolibah, including the owners, and some I still keep in touch with. I looked at the Duxton... More
