Nothing really good or bad to say about this place. It is rather basic. Has a common kitchen and common areas which is rather normal. Room was basic. double bed and en-suite but toilet was common and in separate room. So a little misleading but besides that was not bad. Staff were helpful and pleasant.

I don't understand why there are terrible reviews? I arrived and was met by friendly staff and was shown my room. Immediately checked the bed and it was clean with fresh linen, granted the shower head leaked but this did not affect the pressure which was amazing, very powerful. The kitchen was clean with communal fridges and WiFi in the... More

So when embarking on a Western Australian road trip my friend and I needed accommodation for one night. We were arriving late, and were planning on leaving early to pick up our transportation, so we essentially needed somewhere to lay down for a few hours sleep, and not much else. Proximity to where we needed to get to the next... More

Stayed here a while back and although it´s great for the younger ones I wouldn´t recommend it for a family; a little too loud. However the room was comfortable and the pool was brilliant to cool off in. Staff were friendly and helpful. Had a great time in Perth itself and for a younger person traveling around i´m sure this... More

That's right I should have bought a tent and stayed at the park. I changed from a reasonable twin room to a single room. The shared shower glass was so dirty with soap scum the glass appeared obscured. The pool was not open at all (closed for maintenance). $20 required for key deposit then another $20 to get key just... More

I stayed there for a couple of nights. Good location, quiet but the dirtiest place I've ever seen. Spacious dorms, big lockers where you can fit your backpack. Lack of atmosphere. Definitely overpriced.

Encountered two members of staff the older man was rude the younger woman was nice. The kitchen was a good size and they had a good system for the fridges etc. We had a double room with shower and shared toilet. It was grand, although a little dated. The linen could do with being replaced. The shower was its main... More
