Bam'bu unfortunately has some bad reviews from last year, but from my understanding it had a management change before the new year and has since improved - a lot. I won't lie, it's not the quietest or the tidiest of hostels but it is a good one. The people that come here are fantastic and more than make up for... More

This hostel is a desaster. Really dirty. Rooms are disgusting and only toxicoman are staying there. Had the worth time of my life there! I weist my money and I have been stolen there. Don't go there. Plus there aren't responsible to check anything so you can't even complain when people are smoking in your room

Great location, near to trains and the centre and all local bars etc If you need food, go into the shopping centre as there is a big super market, we made the mistake of paying crazy prices in a local corner shop before realising this was here! When we got to the hostel, the receptionist couldn't find our room but... More

It is an ok hostel if you want to get smashed every night and if you are sleeping on a top bunk in the dorm it is next to impossible to get up because everyone's things are in the way and space is very limited. bed linen is dirty and the music is very loud. If you think 30 dollars... More

Stayed there a week. Me and my 2 party friends had enough. The place is dangerous, smelly, noisy, dirty... Bathrooms are a shame, kitchen is scarry but worst, there is no night management and people are drinking or smoking in the kitchen at night. Stealing is more than welcome there, it helps to buy weed. We are french, but this... More

Bambu is in Perth a great hostel. You definitly go there if you want to PARTY because there are minimum 3 bars just around this hostel (so thanks for the noise when you really want to sleep) and sometimes there is a party in the hostel itself so you go there if you are alone and want to meet new...
