Love this place, it will always have a special place in my heart. It was the first hostel I arrived in in Australia and I loved it I stayed 3 weeks the first time. Been back several times since. It's just a couple minutes walk from the train station, coles, pubs, restaurants, markets. The atmosphere created by the staff is... More

Lovey place, big spacious rooms. Friendly staff and guests. Lots of chill out areas, kichens and activities. Good location also right near the centre of Frematle. There is even a ladies only area with TV lounge and showers.

Staff very welcoming and friendly. They answered all our questions about our stay in Fremantle and the way to go in Rottnest Island. Room comfortable but a little bit cold. We enjoyed our stay in this backpacker!

What you'd expect from a typical backpackers, a lot of long term stays. Free WiFi, computers available, nice big kitchens and hang out areas, movies available, bathrooms and showed could be cleaner. There's a nice area that is females only which is nice. Most of the noise is kept at least outside, in the back, but my last night was... More

It's impossible to put into words what makes this place so special. When you get there you will know. I just had the best time of my life there. And I know I'm not The only one. I could write about feeling home and like part of a big family with people you've known for two weeks. About magic open... More

It used to be a fire station before. We stayed in a double room on the ground floor for only a night. As the backyard was just outside our door, it was extremely noisy throughout the night because it's a Friday night. The room was quite small and dirty. Extra AUD4 would be charged for parking per night. Not suitable... More
