We stayed there for 3 nights in a double room. The hostel is very old, so it might seem a bit dingy at the first glance. But kitchen, bathrooms and common areas do get cleaned every day by a cleaner. It is definitely a party hostel, its loud in the evenings/nights (till 3/4 am). As our double room was next... More

With plenty of like minded travellers at an arms reach, the cheapest drinks in Fremantle and a very positive and fun vibe, this hostel is definitely a home away from home and is proving to be a very hard hostel to leave. From nightly bonfires, trivia... More
