Helpful staff, Good help yourself breakfast, We had a basic but clean en-suite room which consisted of comfortable bunkbeds, Its a bit noisey but it is a backpackers, the location is a good 15min walk from the city centre, China town is only 5mins walk with a good selection of restaraunts.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2010

We have stayed in several backpackers on vacations--but we were surprised at how little effort was put into keeping common areas at the Billabong clean. Of course the guests are expected to clean up after themselves--but the workers there need to do some of the work on the common tables and kitchen areas as well. In addition, the place was too loud for too long into the night--with yelling up and down the hallways well past 4:00 AM on a weeknight. The place served out purpose for the night before heading to the airport--and the room we had was plenty large; however, I'll be picking a different place for my next visit to Perth.

Had a really good time here. If you're up for a laugh and you're not bothered about a bit of noise then this is the place to go. The rooms were average, the kitchen big and well equipped, games room was decent. The appeal about this place was the atmosphere. I had some great nights and met some really nice people.

Extremely rude and unhelpful staff (except two of them who were friendly), everything seemed like a bother for them to help with. About 15-20minute walk into the town centre. Were meant to stay for 10nights but checked out after 4 and got a flight out of there! Rooms were unclean and we didn't once see a cleaner in the time we were there. Wouldn't recommend this hostel.

Average facilities, staff were quite rude and vaguely helpful. All the cleaners are backpackers working for their rent because they have no money so if they were out boozing the night before then dont count on a good service. This place is good for about 3 days then food going missing and your cups plates cuttlery etc getting stolen all the time will get annoying because there are so many homeless type travellers who live here.
