It's such a perfect place for travelers searching fun, party, and friendly feeling. Close to all service, beach, and you can storage your surf equipment without problems. If you get in Fremantle, is a must to live. 100% cool.

Staying there was fun because many young people who are friendly, open minded and some are doing a lot of party. I was there as CVA volunteer. Bed uncomfortable but everything clean. Staff friendly and helped with everything. Wifi was good

Stayed there one night with a group of friends. Perfect location near the pier and market. The place is huge with several floors, common rooms and areas which makes it very interesting to visit. Very good atmosphere and friendly staff.
