My recent holiday in Perth saw me returning to Ocean Beach Backpackers. The first time was three years ago and when I decided to visit Perth again last month, Ocean Beachpackers was the obvious choice. Clean and quiet accommodation, it is good value for money considering that cost of accommodation has gone up significantly since my first visit. The twin... More

This is by far the best hostel to stay in in Perth. When first arrived here my friend and I spent hours looking at other hostel that were all dirty and overpriced. We were so happy to get a room here, such a lovely place. Rooms were clean and with own fridge & bathroom, internet is not cheap but the... More

This was the first place I stayed in Oz and I was pleasantly surprised. The room was good with tea/coffee facilites, lockers and a fridge. Location was amazing, right on the beach. Atmosphere could be better as there are a lot of people who have been there for a few months and have already made their groups of friends. The... More

We booked with my wife mixed dorm for 6 nights. First problem : the crew is really rude and unhelpful. When i asked about public transportation i've heard "I have got a car, i don't give a damn a about public transport". Every question which i asked were too hard for them. Next thing we booked mixed dorm, but they... More

Stayed here in Jan for 2 nights in a private room. The room was quite big and quite clean with a private bathroom. The hostel itself is quite big but I imagine as a result of this it could get quite busy in the kitchens at peak times. You had to pay a refundable deposit to hire crockery and the... More

This hostel is right on Cottesloe beach which is absolutely beautiful. There were also lots of jobs available in the hostel and the local area which were always advertised on the notice board. We were in a private room and our room was thoroughly cleaned and our bedding changed every 4 days and our towels were replaced and very clean... More

Ocean Beach Hostel is brilliant. Very clean throughout, friendly staff, great all rounder! The place is literally a minutes walk from the beach and you get the proper Australian feel for the place. Being close to the beach does seem to attract a few undesirables to the place - but they are dealt with the correct way and evicted swiftly!

We arrived at this beach front backing hostel following a 17 hour flight and were exhausted. Found the staff to be precise and to the point but not especially welcoming or friendly. Our room was pretty good for a hostel having a mini fridge and en-suite. Excellent location being 50 metres from the sea-wonderful walking and views to be had.... More
