Wow I have not been around prior to experience any of the other people's dissatisfied experiences. I can say that I have always had an enjoyable experience here. The taxi fare from the airport is $15, not the price previously stated by someone else. I have also returned to this "lodge" as i have found the price, cleanliness and friendliness very inviting. Pricilla has been putting the hostel together for 8 months and in this time she has made changes; as per negative feed back. It is a hostel type environment excluding the noise of loud drunk customers and the cleanest hostel I have found. Yes it does have shared bathrooms but what do you want for $35 and up (don't know where the guy got $130). Pricilla is getting free wifi and is constantly asking permission to serve a free breakfast. Any bad experiences and reviews from guest have been or are being addressed. The bedding is brand new and don't be afraid to ask for extra's. Pricilla will go out of her way to help you feel comfortable. This is a place for the quiet and older traveler and or worker. Party animals need not bother, this place won't be fun for you. It is a great place to get some quiet rest and close to the airport for FIFO. It is the cleanest and quietest hostel I have found in Perth and like being away from the city noise. I will continue to return and look forward to the free wifi, free breakfast and HOPEFULLY TV's in the rooms.
