Great hostel, friendly staff, very clean, easy to meet people, and in addition, free breakfast included. Within walking distance of Northbridge and downtown Perth. I definitely recommend the place and will stay there again.

Great fun place. V helping staff. Will stay again. Cleanliness and quietness are most important factors for my five star rating. Train station, bus stops and shops are closeby. Can recommend this place big time

Love how the management organizes games & quiz nights with attractive prizes to be won. Almost one for every night! Haven't been to any of them personally but the idea is pretty innovative. Place was clean and offers free ingredients (bread, jams, cereal, juice etc) for you to make breakfast too; it's a pity the toasters weren't working very well.... More

The hostel is clean, but it lacks atmosphere and is definitely overpriced. Dorm rooms are small, but staff were helpful. It is in a good location. I definitely wouldn't recommend staying here as a young solo traveller. Wifi is slow and only available in main sitting room.

We're a middle aged couple but enjoyed the atmosphere. Stayed in a room of our own with a double bed, but shared bathroom facilities. For the price it was comfortable enough although we did need to ask for extra blankets. (Winter nights in Perth can be cool.) The area is residential/suburban, with a nice park over the road and its... More

i stayed here twice, just with a short break to go to Freo and Rotto. I would say that's the cleanest hostel that i had the last 11 months (incl. kitchen and bathrooms). Helpful and friendly staff, nice selection of activities, lovely other travellers in the common areas

We stayed here for three nights at the end of or Australia trip and it didn't disappoint. The rooms were big with lots of storage facilities, clean bathrooms and modern kitchen/tv room. Really good location near to northbridge so easy to get back to after a night out. Also not far from the train station about a 20 minute walk.... More

This hostel was the first I went when I arrived in Australia. It is not to big, everything is clean and the personal was really friendly. I met great people and enjoy my stay. There was BBQ or free food the Sunday, and breakfast was complete and free until 10:00 (if my memory is good). The only negatives point are... More

Hi Marie-Anne, Thank you for your kind words. Appreciate it! We understand that it can be inconvenient to have the courtyard close at 10PM but we are located in a residential area so we have to be considered of our neighbours. Thanks again and safe travels.
