Location is good, though can be noisy. There was no AC in the room I was in, just noisy fans. Quite druggy atmosphere outside in the sitting area, and I think it goes beyond smoking weed.

I loved everything about this place. Go see for yourself - Fremantle is an amazing place and this backpackers is right in the heart of Freo. Great parties and the best atmosphere you can get!! Huge kitchen, lots of clean bathrooms and a giant 3x4m walk in fridge.

I had one of the best times in the Old Fire Station. The staff is excellent, always very helpful and good-humored and they will do everything that's in their power so you feel at home. They have many things planned every day of the week and really pour their heart into their work. If you are looking for a hostel... More

I hate to write negative reviews but i think feedback's important for improvement, which this hostel needs badly,This place could really be something awesome if it was given some TLC, I expected the history of the place to be the main event but was disappointed to see it well lost. My fiance and I arrived late at night and checked... More

But the best thing is the huge table in the backyard of this hostel where you get to know very good people from every country in the world. This is although a good point to get some helpful... More

It has large relaxation/hang out areas. They have kept things to make it hip (like the fireman pole). They have a girl only area, which was where I stayed. Very... More
