“One World Backpackers, home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2008

After travelling all over the world I can say that this hostel is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at! The general consensus is that Australia has the best hostels in the world, and that's true from my experiences, but this tops the lot.
The hostel is relatively small, and is designed more like a big house than a hostel. It's extremely clean, and the tv room has a widescreen tv and comfy sofas. Everything you could want or need is in the kitchen. Perth is quite spread out so in terms of location it's not close but not far from everything. There's a free Cat bus service that operates through-out Perth and the stop is right outside the hostel, so even if you do dislike walking you don't have to. It's also directly across from the Wicked van shop if you're looking to hire a campette. The manager Steve is great, and is willing to give you info on anything you ask for. There are only 2 computers with internet access so there's always a bit of a queue, but they're top of the range, quick and fairly priced. I'm not sure if there's wireless. There are 3 big washing machines and 2 dryers, but you can line dry your stuff for free in the beautiful Aussie sunshine out the back. There are also hammocks put out the front everyday which are very comfy!

  • Liked — The friendly staff, the clean comfortable environment, the hammocks!
  • Disliked — Nothing, loved everything!
  • Stayed October 2007, traveled as a couple
