I have done two stints in the Sundancer and wouldn't hesitate to return! What needs to be remembered is this is a hostel, not a five star hotel. The rooms are basic but cater for the needs of a backpacker above and beyond. It's funky, quirky and a great place to meet people whilst travelling or if you're planning on... More

I arrived in Freo desperately seeking accommo after leaving a packed Perth. We stayed at a couple of other Freo hostels before we dropped in on Sundancers. It is hands down the best hostel i will ever stay in. Originally the plan was to stay for a couple days before going back to Perth but this place just draws you... More
