I Stayed in a 6bed dorm.Bed was comfortable and the room had its own aircondirioning and bathroom. Over all experience was good however free WiFi would have been awesome and an extra fridge or two for the kitchen area.

Stayed here just for 1 night while passing through, very clean, friendly and very close to city centre, trains and busses. Only 15$$ to airport via shuttle bus which the guy on reception organized for me at 3am In the top 10 of hostels I've stayed in in Australia

The first thing that hit us as we entered the dorm was a musty smell - a sign that the room wasn't well-cleaned. The floor and bathrooms weren't clean either. Seemed like they did not clean up the room because the other three who stayed in the room were long-term residents. Receptionist was helpful and friendly though.

The hostel was very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable - I was in a six bed dorm with a private bathroom. This was another hostel where the crockery/cutlery had to be hired which I find slightly odd. The hostel is in a good location, only a few minutes walk from the train station... More

Hi Rebecca P! Firstly, thanks for your nice review! It's always good to hear that we're doing well and that our efforts are appreciated! I just wanted to address your point about the cutlery and crockery sets and explain why we do this. There are a few reasons we charge a refundable deposit for this, however the main reason is...

The staff are helpful and I absolutely love it.......................Fantastic..................One thing I can think of is that the hotel is 5 min away from the city, and they also help arrange any tours if you are interested.

Thanks so much for your good review Ang341, we always do our best to help out!

We found the hostel very clean compared to others. Room was freshly painted and bed comfortable. However, when placed in a double room. We backed onto the smoking/drinking area, which does have a curfew of 10 30. But between the hours of 7-11ish it's very loud, so loud you can't hear the tv in your room! Your room also smells...

Hi Lindsey A, I'm really sorry to hear about the problems you had with noise when you stayed with us. As you said, our courtyards do close at 10:30pm to minimise the disruption to our other guests and we encourage guests to keep their voices down when returning late at night, however recently we had some guests who took no...

Hostel location is easy accessible to the Blue Cat line which leads to the city in minutes and walking distance to Perth train station as well as to the Pick-up point from day tours agency. Will definitely be my return stay despite of a super flat pillow provided but overall it is clean and there is a mini fridge in... More

Hi Grace! Sorry about the flat pillows but glad you enjoyed your stay apart from that! We've been replacing the old pillows but your room must have been missed out for some reason, I'll make sure they're gone ASAP! Kind Regards, Tom O'Brien - Manager More

Very disappointed with my stay here, having read quite a few good reviews. Central location, close to train station and CBD but otherwise not many positives. I stayed in a 6 bed ensuite. The room was cleaned daily but the bathroom was only cleaned once (badly at that) during my 4 day stay. Very noisy at night. Staff ok..not overly... More

Location and service is ok but our room was really dirty (living and dead insects). We stay one night and cancel the others. For almost the same price we were in a luxury apartment the next days thanks to airBnB.

This place was such a wonderful reprieve towards the end of our trip. We stayed in 5 different hostels over the course of about three weeks, Perth being at the tail end. This is the first time I saw a bathtub or a REAL BED (rather than a weird foam square on a squeaky bunk) for three weeks! It was... More
