I understand that young people should love booming bass until 3 or 4am, but it wasn't really my cup of tea. If you like to party every night, then this is probably a great place, otherwise it's a fairly standard hostel in terms of beds, cleanliness (which was fine) and room size. Staff were very good, however, as was location.... More

One of the best hostels I have stayed: clean (kitchen and bathrooms are cleaned every morning), very nice and helpful staff, nice backyard. Free WiFi and coffee&tea. If you stay in Fremantle this hostel will make your stay perfect. There is plenty of program during the week - so if you like to socialise, this is a very good place.... More

I have been travelling & living solo in a bush campervan for about 4 months; needed a change, needed a bed, needed bricks and mortar surrounding me and some company would be good too.

One of the best hostels I've stayed at in Australia. Not only is the management friendly and helpful, but they are also your friends. Beers are ridiculously cheap. Soft drinks are ridiculously cheap. Reception is always offering freebies. Kitchen is very clean. Most importantly, the hostel offers a family vibe that is welcoming and not clique-y. Home away from home.... More
