I arrived and was greeted by "Vic" I have never met someone so rude in my life! He clearly should not be in a customer facing role as his attitude stinks, he spoke to me like I was back in school! Awful way to start my holiday as I was nervous enough travelling on my own. Was told the rules... More

Booked 7 nights at this hostel as I had heard good things about it. Left after 4 nights as it was pretty boring. Wifi didn't work, and the place was pretty loud a lot of the time. Also had people stealing our stuff out of the fridges. Wouldn't recommend.

Sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. We do our best to keep the noise down. After 11pm we close the outdoor area and we expect the guests to be quiet and respect the other guests. In past years it was open to 2am so the new closing times have helped a lot with those problem guests. As for the kitchen... More

If you are looking for a quiet place to stay, definitely doesn't recommend this backpackers! But it will suit you if you are a party animal... And I booked a FEMALE-ONLY room, God knew there were a couple slept below to me...so the bed shaked most night...

Great place for the money. I arrived the Thursday and my money was not yet available in my account and what i had was almost depleted from my trips to Brisbane and Melbourne, explained this to staff and they happily worked with me to charged my account the next day, unfortunately I was checking out that night. Great location and... More

I booked into a double room. I had my own bathroom, a balcony and air-conditioning although I think this is standard for each room. There's a good size pool out the back and its only a short walk from the cbd and from Highgate where there's loads of restaurants, bars and shops. I stayed for 4 nights and got the... More

Best hostel in Perth! If you are looking to party and meet welcoming people to have a laugh with then then stay here. Has a swimming pool as well so even better! A great place to hook up with a hot chick as well!

Feels like you are in a prison here. You are told to go to bed at 11pm. Your plates are served to you in a bag like a prison inmate. The receptionists were actually pretty friendly but I wouldn't stay here if you enjoy socialising and having fun. I felt restricted and on edge. The wifi is also annoying as... More

We believe it all depends on what you want. We never tell people to to bed at 11pm. The dinning area is open to 1am. The guests here are very lucky that we allow them to bring in a few drinks to share with there friends but no drinks are allowed after 11pm (a lot of hostels do not allow... More

The pool and aircon was a blessing... Theology only thing that ruined it was the rowdy unclean guests and five flights of stairs. Bbq outdoor deck was stunning! Staff very helpful.... Little bit expensive but lifestyle e worth living. Kitchen needed a clean but that was due to dirty guests. Recommended as your number one hostel

Thank you. Sorry the rooms are as cheap as we can make them. Compared to hotel it's more than half price for a private room and even less if you stay in a dorm. If you compare with other hostels we are about the same price but we hava a swimming pool, air con in all rooms, bathroom in all... More
