Toilets and showers on the 2nd floor are clean when I stayed there. There are no private toilets nor is there air-con and constant noise outside the window throughout the night. Very average hostel. Good for one night stays. Not recommended for long stays.

This backpacker is one of the worst accomodations I've ever stayed in. The room was smelly and dirty. Weird guests everywhere in this backpacker. I booked here for 5 nights, but I cancelled it because it was too dangerous! Bathroom is filthy. Reception is rude. If you don't want to have horrible experience, you should avoid here.

Worst experience ever!!!!!!! The hostel is a sleazy place. Dirty and old fashion with weird guests. Couldn't lock our room. Told the problem to the staff of the reception but neither they repaired it nor give us another room. As we came back in the evening our backpacks have been stolen but the manager of the hostel didn't care. Of... More

When she finally arrived her excuse was sorry it was a morning that I didn't want to get out of bed. What?... More

I have stayed at the Backpackers Inn in Freo a couple of times and found it to be just right for my needs.It is clean, well-priced and has friendly staff. It is well located for the beach, the shops and the nightlife. It is great being able to park near the police station so your vehicle is secure too. Thanks.

Fremantle is such a nice place - they really need a hostel that is nice, to rival all these awful ones. I have stayed in many hostels all around the world, and this one was disgusting. It felt like I was in a 3rd world location, not Australia! Reception staff were rude, miserable and unfriendly - barely unable to even... More

The receptionist (both lady and man) were rude and not friendly. The lady didnt look like she wanted to be there at all. The man was ok but when asked too many question it seemed like it was a hassle for him. If i was running a business id get new desk staff that were up beat, friendly and social.... More

My wife and I are a middle aged couple and up until 2 and a half years ago would not have even considered a backpackers for accommodation. After our initial visit we have stayed there on at least six occasions whilst visiting Perth area. We find it great for public transport, tourist attractions and its general location makes it handy... More

Bi-polar showers, hot, cold, hot repeat, moldy shower curtains. Uncomfortable beds. Very noisy to the early hours of the morning. One out of three staff members were polite, the female was very rude. Very good location is all.
