Very helpful owner, gives interesting advise about visiting Perth and surroundings. Cheap accomodation, very very basic rooms but clean. Toilets & showers are shared and they're clean but also very basic. So, if you're in Perth and you're looking for a really cheap and clean place to stay overnight without anything else on top of that: then this is absolutely... More

We stayed in different backpacker in town, and this one is the cheapest and the best. It's situated close to Coles in the town center with everything close (shopping, restaurants, train etc...). The staff is friendly, rooms clean and the free internet acces work very well (helpful when you arrive). Highly recommended !!!

We stayed for four nights after arriving in Australia. This hostel was good in the sense that we were able to overcome the jet lag in peace. The free wifi was also good. However, don't stay here if you're looking to make new friends, as the majority of the people there have been there for months. Things to note: unusual... More

I see a lot of negative story's been written and most of them are about the way other people behave in the hostel, you can't blame the hostel... More
