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

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

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

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

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!

I choose Pirates Backpackers because I wanted to be a pirate ;-P was just a fun decision, but me just new to Fremantle and even to Australia the best decision ever! Pirates is a small Hostel compared to the others, what makes it very personal. You know the people around you by name. everyone will know you as well. The... More

The hostel itself is already great, nice kitchen, hangout area and pretty good rooms. But the thing that makes this hostel exceptional are the activities that you do with Vaughan. Sometimes they are free, and if they vost something it's for an incredibly good price. If you want to.visit Fremantle.or Perth this hostel is one of the best.

Room was dirty, and we were greeted by a musty smell upon entering the room (even though the window was open all day). The hostel in general is worn-down with rickety doors. Pillows and duvets were old (and yellow) too. Receptionist was unfriendly.

Hi Charlene. You know, I’ve just returned from taking a crew from Pirates up to Lancelin and the Pinnacles for a brilliant day of surfing, sandboarding & loads of fun in which each person expressed their total enjoyment of the day and their stay at Pirates. So it’s a shame to now read your negative review of Pirates. I notice... More
