This place is always clean and tidy and a very good atmosphere. The staff are very knowledgeable about the surroundings. Always happy to help and informative. The premises are cleaned every day and modern. Close to town but far enough away so it's not too noisy.

Room with ensuite was good. Location was great. Service was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, room was dirty. Dust and floors not cleaned and mopped. Dirty bin. TV not working and broken remote. Had to ask for tea/ coffee for room and was given only 2 milks, not even enough for 1 drink. I would not visit this hostel again.

I stayed 2x here while vacationing in Perth, and both times were amazing. My first stay I was in a 4bed room, which was really clean, and there were lockers provided in room big enough to store all my luggage. Locks were not provided, but were available in the vending machine, which was awesome. My 2nd stay was just for... More

I had no idea there was a nightclub right outside my bedroom window, the doof doof music went all through the night, along with the trippers sitting outside and talking at the top of their voices, the own room with own bathroom was convenient but the carpet was crusty and there was a cockroach in one of the two dirty...

Location was pretty good- 5min walk to Perth train station which could take you anywhere, and just a block down from WA museum and some good food spots. Stayed in a private room and that was neat and tidy, with working air con and TV. However over the weekend the communal area was a mess, rubbish all over the floor... More

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
