A great place to stay with double room and ensuite and so much cheaper than a hotel. Very short walk into Perth city centre/Northbridge with restaurants, nightlife shopping etc. Will definitely stay there again.

Overall it was very pleasant. Stayed in a shared room and it was not cramped. Clean and comfortable and the lads at reception were helpful and happy all the time. Close to all the amenities and library/museum art museum, train station good coffe stops and supermarkets. As a FIFO stopover or backpackers/hotel, was a good place for a newby to... More

Too dirty. Of course I don't expect 6 bed dorm to be like a 5 star hotel. But there were too many cockroaches. I saw them in my pillow, cabinet, and sheet, door, everywhere! I made a reservation for 5 days(4 nights). But I spent my first night on the couch, and checked out next day. Too much disappointed

Hi, I must confess, I'm pretty shocked that I've had no other guests complain about this, if the problem is as bad as you state in your review. All of our recent reviews have rated our cleanliness levels as excellent, so I am pretty confused by this one review which bucks the trend in such a big fashion and would... More

Affordable clean accommodation close to CBD, with friendly helpfull staff and within easy access to buses and walking. We stayed in a private en-suite room which was a good size - nice shower with a TV and A/C. Noise was limited to business hours and traffic. Only slight 'hiccup' there is no lift and we couldn't find any recycle bins... More

Hi BunJez, Thanks for the good review! If you ever need a lift with luggage upstairs, just give one of our staff a shout and they'll be happy to help - I wish we had a lift too, it would save my back some grief! We did try recycling at one point but found that a lot of guests were... More

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

Hi bhaiya, I'll have a look at the way we've done our bunk beds and see if there's a way we can improve things - at the moment the reason we leave it so they can be pulled out is to aid with changing the sheets and cleaning, but maybe there's a way we can do both. Thanks for the... 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
