WiFi was a bit flaky at times, service from staff was excellent, only real concern was the bunk beds aren't bolted to the floor or wall as I almost tipped it over trying to climb the thin ladder (and I am not even fat or bulky). Under normal circumstances you can take a bit of time but if there was... More

Very professional backpackers. Great staff. Clean rooms. Not a party backpackers so if that's what you're looking for, probably look elsewhere. Very nice, friendly and helpful. Some parking available. Great laundry facilities.

The hostel is well organised and managed. Staff were very helpful. It is in a great location - easy walk to Cultural Centre and a coffee shop next door. Rooms lack decoration but mine was large, had its own fridge, TV and bathroom. Good friendly and safe atmosphere.

I have been to Perth before, trying many hostels. Most of them appears to be party hostels, full of drunk, drug-using, screaming, vomiting backpackers mixed with locals picked up from the street. For someone who is traveling on a budget and just needs a place to sleep, that's a nightmare. So before my latest visit, I did my research. And... More

The hostel is clean. Common rooms and kitchen are nice, just maybe one more fridge would be a good idea. Very nice location, CBD and Woolworths is just a 7 minutes walk away. What I didn't like and totally don't understand: why so few sockets inside the dorms? Why no sockets for upper beds? Why no cupboards for upper beds?... More

This is the perfect hostel to stay in Perth, at walking distance from the CBD and Northbridge! All the facilities are clean, the rooms are big compared to other hostels and the beds' mattresses are really comfortable. The only criticism I could make is that we are not allowed to access the kitchen after 10:30pm, even if we just want... More

Hi Anthony, Thanks a lot for your review, it's great to hear that we are doing so many things right. With regards to your point about the kitchen/fridges, it's true that we do close the kitchen after 22:30. There are 2 reasons we do this, firstly for safety, to ensure people who may have had a couple of drinks too... More

Hi Nick, Many thanks for your review and constructive criticism! It's not often that we get reviews from wheelchair users (or such a well written, constructive review) and I've found your comments really helpful. I'm going to try and act on everything you've mentioned. Thanks again for the review Nick, hopefully next time you come to stay we get 5/5!... More

The place to stay! Clean and tidy rooms, welcoming environment and awesome cooking facilities. Secure accommodation combined with friendly, obliging and helpful staff! Good location, 5 min into the city. One of the best backpackers I stayed in. Thank you!

When i was there it was reasonably clean, especially the bathrooms. Not a fan of the staff. Guy got drunk with all his british mates and were screaming racist comments at a couple of Taiwanese girls. At that point I was thinking “Right! Never staying here again” Would raise the issue with staff, but, like I said, the guy was... More

Hi, I'm not sure what exactly happened here, my staff are usually very well behaved and quickly act against anything like this, as we try to promote a friendly atmosphere where everyone can feel welcome. Could you please get in touch with me so I can investigate? More
