She gave us extra blankets and was always really kind. The rooms were fine! A little tired and no lockers.. Luckily I knew... More

We got lucky at this hostel as we ended up in a 3 bed room instead of the 8 bed mixed dorm we originally booked. This was due to a slight mix up on arrival where we had been booked into an all girls dorm by mistake. This was resolved quickly at reception which was great considering we arrived at... More

Excellent front desk service! The social atmosphere here is perfect. A courtyard with pool table and darts, two common areas with comfy couches, large tv's and an abundance of dvd's. Facilities are quite adequate. Two kitchens, a licensed bar. The rooms were clean, quiet and comfy. As a regular traveler for work, I will definitely be using this as my... More

Such a great place to stay, helpful staff and a relaxed environment. Several different areas to locate yourself with the company you prefer, multi kitchens and washing facilities so your not waiting or on top of each other. There's a pub next door and the vibrancy of north ridge is a short stroll if you wish, take it or leave... More

Had a great stay, thank you. Hostel had a lovely homely feel to it, very accommodating and easy-going staff. There was an odd man in our room who kept making weird noises in his sleep and scratching himself... I'll put that on him and not the hostel though.

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
