My time in Pirates was great, made loads of friends and have some great memories. It's more a house than a hostel and after a few days you end up knowing everyone, so it's great if you want to settle in Freo for a while. Super central location also.

After we arrived in Perth we decided moving to the pirates handling several stuff for our stay in Australia. The Pirates and Freo in general, are a really nice place to stay. The Crew is very helpful and kind! I really enjoyed the trips which were organized by Vaughan (the owner) like for example the boat cruise tour on the... More

It's been nine years since my last stay here, so I was a little apprehensive about coming back, as I'd enjoyed it here so much first time around. I am pleased to say that these apprehensions were unfounded!! Whilst my first time here will always be my favourite, as I stayed longer and had a big crowd of friends by... More

Hi Smellhippy ! ( I do know who you are) It was pretty exciting for me to have you turn up, after being here 9 years ago. It was also great to see you enjoy settling back into Pirates life. I'm really happy you enjoyed your stay. And God willing, we'll be here in another 9 years time, so maybe... More

I stayed here from September 2013 to October 2013. This is one of the better hostels I stayed in. The place does need a refurbish. But it is clean. Me & my friend stayed in a double room overlooking the road. The noise from the road was terrible. This is definitely a party hostel. There were people partying till 3am... More

G'day Ella. Thanks for your review and for your nice title, "Friendly vibes and great staff ". A bit of a shame re the noise in the street. It's not normally too bad. I probably wouldn't describe us as a party hostel, definitely not when compared to a lot of other hostels I have stayed in during my travels. Well... More

Myself and a friend booked at Pirates for just a weekend in Fremantle because we had a gig to get to on the Saturday. We had a tough time finding accommodation in fremantle, but after one email to Pirates, they quickly responded with helpful news! They booked us the only room they had available. After our two nights were up,... More

Hey Emily...that's a terrific review! Thanks heaps. I love it when people book in for a day or so and end up staying longer, which is what normally happens. So I was happy when you both decided to stay longer and enjoy a full week! Well I hope all is well and hopefully we'll see you back here again! Vaughan More

I was very happy about my stay at Pirates. The hostel is right in the heart of lovely Fremantle with all bars, restaurants, shops and market within walking distance. The staff is friendly and helpful, the atmosphere in the hostel is welcoming and relaxed. Drinks, movie nights and meals are organised during the week to allow us to gather and... More

The definition of a nice cosy hostel, not to big not to small, feels like a nice trusted group after 1 hour. Location is very good too. There is a nice hangout chill place in the back and even a cinema kinda livingroom for the slow nights. They organize a lot so you better check it out if you are... More

Good on you Twan! Thanks for your great review! You're right about the Pirates size .... it's just the perfect size we reckon, where you can know everyone and feel comfortably at home pretty quick! Cheers. Vaughan More

Very good place if you like to meet people from everywhere, you won't be bored. Activities programs. Rooms, bathroom etc are very clean. Very good stuff, available and smiling, will do the best for your stay. So close from the centre, easier to look for a job. And not far from south beach. You will be fine there!
