I stayed at this hostel in September 2013. I shared a double room which was large and the beds were comfortable. It had its own en suite bathroom. This was very dirty and there were dead insects underneath the sink in the cabinet. The kitchen was dirty. The staff were friendly and helpful. The upside is that it is right... More

It was ok, don't expect nothing great but it is a hostel. Good location and there is a free shuttle to the train station. Booked a private en-suite and it had a fan and fridge. It was ok for one night but I wouldn't want to stay in Cottlesloe for long anyway. Lovely place but not much to do of... More

The rooms are clean and spacious with a locker each as well as a dedicated shelf. The hostel is across the road from the beach and the views are amazing It's 20minutes from Perth and there is a bar nearby as well as a shop and a couple of beach front restaurants/cafés

The location of this place is amazing. The beach is so close and there is a bus stop on the opposite side of the road to take you to Perth. A supermarket is a 5 minute walk away, or the station and woolworths, 15minutes. However this hostel is full of people who are staying there long term and working in... More

I have stayed at the OBB many times during the last year and have always been happy and welcomed by the backpackers that were staying there at the time. I have left to go traveling many times and keep end up going back there because I've always felt at home there! The people are always very welcoming and can be... More

I spent over a year backpacking around and stayed in tons of hostels but never one as amazing as OBB. I met the most wonderful characters, both guests and staff and never felt so welcome and homely. It's like living in a big house with all your friends! There's a family vibe going on, everyone looks out for each other.... More
