Great location, but that is where the strengths pretty much end. You also get an hour free on the computers and a locker in the dorm If you don't want to breathe in cigarette smoke from the courtyard all night, then this isn't for you. If you don't want to smell of smoke when you wake up, this isn't for... More

My first few days in the hostel were strange. All of the sudden I was living with so many new people, but I have had so much fun the last few months living in this hostel! I got the opportunity to meet so many amazing people and to build so many amazing memories here. Don't expect it to be the... More

The Hostel was fantastic thank you for a really nice stay!!! The staff was always fun and welcoming especially the owner Vaughan. If you're a lone traveller as you'll meet lots of nice people. The hostel is very well located, a short walk to the centre of Fremantle and to beautiful beaches. I am definitely coming back!! Thank you Vaughan!... More

If you're looking for somewhere great to stay in Fremantle, look no further than Pirates Backpackers. It's located in a great location - close to everything you'd need including the beach :) Lovely, friendly staff, always willing to help, including the owner Vaughan, who always has activities organised, so there's always something to do, especially if you're a lone traveller...

I stayed here for a few nights in January 2014. The hostel is relatively clean & it's great to get a locker to store valuables. However, the hostel is very noisy - all night long! There was a lot of partying & this meant it was difficult to get to/ stay asleep. The hostel is very well located, just a... More

G'day Ash. Sorry to hear that you found Pirates to be too noisy. Obviously we want every single person to enjoy their stay at Pirates. We do try to keep the noise down and are mostly successful with the music turned off at 11pm on week nights and 1am on Friday and Saturday. We then encourage those who want to... More

If your thinking of staying in Fremantle stay here! Or even on Perth! Very clean, all round a perfect hostel, a good bunch of guests too! When I stayed I felt very welcome, they have a daily activity to get people together, I wish I'd stayed for their Hawaiian themed party!

The hostel offers a lot of cool activities, a great place to meet new people and to have fun. You find also a very helpful, friendly staff and it's a good base if you are looking for a job. Besides south beach it's only a few minutes by (free) bus away.

Pirates is one of the best hostels I've stayed at during my travelling career. Centrally located in Fremantle, it tends to attract a crowd of great people. I feel like I have made many friends for life over the months I've stayed at Pirates. The hostel is basic, but clean, and has all the necessary amenities. Highly recommended!

I booked in at this hostel for a week, and from the first evening, I was hooked on the place. Everyone is really friendly/funny/interesting. There are a load of "long term" tenants, which can be a bit intimidating, as they tend to form cliques, bit this is not the case at Pirates. The hostel itself is ok, the beds are... More

What an inspiring place. It was different from anything I saw in my travelling live, but the freshness of the people, the challenges they spoke about, the host, the nigths with the youn people where the best I ever had in the past decade. What a luck I choose this "ugly" place in the first place. I didn't participate in... More
