If you are looking for great place to stay around Perth, head to Fremantle and knock on the Old Fire Station front door! This place rocks! My 6 months stay at OFS was just amazing. The atmosphere in the hostel is very good. The rooms, the kitchen, the backyard, the toilets, are all very clean. But the hostel wouldn't be... More

I can easily say the OFS is the best hostel I have stayed in, and I've stayed in a lot of hostels! The atmosphere is amazing, everyone is so friendly and you get to know EVERYONE, not just the people in your room which is what most hostels are like. I I ended up staying here for six months, if...

I stayed for a few weeks when off work due to injury. At a time, I was struggling to even walk it was the perfect place to recover with loads of movies, sun baking in the courtyard, beach nearby. The super friendliness of the staff and everyone staying ensured I was in a much bettermood by the time I left.... More

This hostel is fu..ing amazing, because it's not just a place where you sleep a few nights even if you have planned on doing that. The people are really great and you can see right away that they put a lot of love into everything. It is never boring because there are always activities to do and parties to go... More

I came to Old Fire Station Backpackers planning on staying 2 days and ended up here for months. The vibe and friendliness of this place is just off the charts. Having returned for a 5th time now, I can honestly say that's its become more of a home for me than a hostel. The facilities including 2 kitchens, outdoor courtyard,... More

Stayed there for a weekend and caught myself going back from time to time between work. If you want to have a great time and meet a lot of interesting people this is the place to go. It is a party hostel. Every day there is something to do. So if you just want a quiet sleep, go somewhere else.... More

I stayed here at the beginning of my travels in Australia, and it it is a really laid back, cool place to hang out. As far as i could tell mainly full of young travelers from Europe many of them on work visas. i had a single room which was comfortable but as it is adjacent to the courtyard, unfortunately... More

Very busy hostel, with a huge variety of types of people. Most people here have jobs, so there are always a few people looking to make the most of their days off. Not always the quietest hostel, but there is always something fun going on. Great amenities, pool table, big kitchens, cleaned twice a day, with the biggest variety of... More
