Stayed here for about a month and a half which ran over the christmas and new year period, absolutely awesome place to stay! it's central to fremantle, the shops and bars are only a 5 minute walk away and there is a small quiet beach a 5 minute (FREE) bus ride away called blue/red cats. If you want to visit... More

The Old Fire Station...! I'm sure the Devil and God meet over there and make big plans to keep you party all the time without even let you feel guilty! I really had a blast at the OFS. Even if there a lot of party, everything is under control. The room, the kitchens, and the common area are clean. Really... More

Beautiful Staff - first of all - thank you so much. Not a lot of sleep unfortunately. Long termers run the hostel a little too much. but Thank you for the free WiFi. I would like to suggest the staff have more control of the guests than guests making the rules. This was discouraging but nonetheless I appreciated my stay.... More

Kind of a scary surrounding area at night, but really interesting building. I like how inside the hostel, there’s a whole section just for girls (if you want). So not just the dorms but a whole sitting area and kitchen too. Big fan of that. A bit of an older building so has a bit a gloomy feel to it... More

I stayed here a week while in Fremantle in September 14. I originally had went to another hostel in town which was so gross I checked in and checked straight out after seeing the disgusting conditions! I went to The Old Fire Station Backpackers and felt so welcomed. Thank you to the guy on reception who carried my heavy luggage... More

I've stayed at OFS twice now and it was better the second time around! I love that they offer free wifi and use of actual computers. Oh and they have ovens (which is a rare sighting in Australia). I really love the separate girls only area/apartment which is where I mainly spent most of my time. The staff are very... More

When I arrived, they said there would be a 'video game party' the following night. I take this to mean that people will be playing video games in some way. A reasonable assumption, right? No. A video game party means an ALL NIGHT outdoor dance/club party out back where people dress in video game costumes. Fine, no issues there, I'm... More

If you're looking for a place where heavy drugs, bullying, freeze out and oppression of women is allowed and encouraged, you should check in to the old fire station in fremantle.. My first impression was that it seemed like a cool place but as soon as I got to know the people and the staff a little better it was... More
