Bathroom's and showers were very clean but kitchen was dirty! The privat room we had was not nice and most of the staff was unfriendly and not doing ther job... We had to look for them all the time. Fine location.

The guy who checked me in - when he was available - gave me wrong information on a few things and his way of communicating was unpleasant and too aggressive. I also do not appreciate being called "sweetie" and "honey" continuously by a random dude I don't know. I was placed in a room with two long term guests, sorry... More

Stayed in the Shiralee for a little over two weeks. The place is mostly occupied by longterm backpackers which, in my eyes, creates a nice atmosphere. Nice and quiet in evenings since most people have to work the next day. Facilities are very clean and there are enough facilities to keep yourself entertained if no one else is around. City... More

the day manager, d., is a huge problem. as long as he is in duty, shiralee is not suitable for travellers. worst case: i asked for earlier checkout at 8am to get a ride to the next destination. answer: "reception opens 9am, bro". and the 29th december is a public holiday (lie). "i have a diner tonight, the boss is... More

I stayed for one week and the hostel was quite full. Mainly with young people working in the area. Rooms, bathrooms and toilets were all clean. Plenty of hot water and a huge kitchen which just about works for the number of people all trying to cook at once. This is a lively hostel and well situated close to the... More

I moved into the Shiralee just over a week ago and will more than likely stay there for the next few months. Since changing owners in December and having a full renovation this hostel is the cleanest and nicest I've stayed in (this is my 3rd hostel since being in Perth). All the bathrooms are brand new, the rooms are... More
