I loved staying at Piartes there was a great mix of people and the atmosphere was great, the staff were lush, the tour guide was helpful and I felt well at home! I check out other hostels in fremantle before booking in at pirates and the atmosprhre of the other places want half as good or Fridley!

A great hostel situated right in the heart of a great city. The place has a character of its own, is great value, comfortable, and very well run. A wide range of activities are put on by the hostel on a weekly basis, put simply, it's a fun place to be. After 3 months it felt like home and was... More

Lovely little hostel, with my favorite aspect being a lovely shady garden which is great for socializing both during sunny days and warm nights. Its well looked after by the friendly staff (cheers for everything guys!) and there are regular activities organized most nights of the week. Its is definitely a lively and social place, especially on Friday and Saturday... More

I loved staying in this hostel. The host is super friendly and organises daily activities, which makes it natural to socialise and make friends. It feels like a big house with young people and there's mutual respect between the backpackers. The location is perfect! Next to a very cool bar and the Fremantle Markets. Really in the centre. I'd definitely... More

The staff was very inviting from the time I walked in! I arrived with a lot of gear before heading South and they even found room to store my extra baggage. Everyone at the hostel was friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere in the back courtyard, plenty of room to hang out or play pool. They were cleaning the hostel daily,... More

You would be more than happy to stay at Pirates, ended my stay there for 107 days, it's really home away from home. There's always friendly backpackers around the hostel! You would never get boring. I met a lot of nice people at Pirates. The thing made me feel so warm to stay at Pirates is Vaughan could remember the... More

Was a great atmosphere and everyone was really friendly. Activities were put on and the staff were extremely helpful with tips of things to do and see. Not having wifi was a bit difficult just for my phone but their are several cafes close that had free wifi. Overall great stay, would definitely recommend.

Staff were nice, room was clean. Big chill out areas were really good, loads of DVDs to choose from, the only thing was the kitchen was small and dirty! Couldn't stay here long term but 1 or 2 nights is fine!
