This hostel has a warm and welcoming vibe to it that makes for a homely spot. The staff are friendly and the kitchens and bathrooms are kept nice and tidy. Though repairs were needed in several spots over the course of my stay, they were all dealt with in a timely manner.

I just slept one night at Wickham retreat and it was a great warm sleep (finally) :) Moreover the manager cooked rice and curry for everybody that night and it was sooo good! Breakfast is good and free and I could also do my laundry for free, which saved me some dollars. If I ever come back to Perth I... More

Coming from South East Asia hostels in Australia seemed so expensive, however this hostel at 30$ seemed pretty reasonable. I later found out the value was very worth it. There was multiple hanging out areas with pool tables, free computer with internet access, free wifi, and a quiet area with books as well. There was showers and a nice kitchen... More

I stayed at Wickham Retreat for five days while visiting Perth. I found it through my Lonely Planet book. Chris, the manager was very helpful and polite and showed me around the hostel. This is one of the only hostels where I really felt at home. Everyone that was staying here was so friendly; we asked each other about our... More

Was there for 7 days. Free milk, bread and cereal was a great service. Staff were very helpful. Great public transport links into the city. A more relaxed environment and I would like to see more hostels like this.

Perth was my first stop in Australia and I'm glad I stayed at this hostel for those 2 or 3 weeks. Hostels are the best place to meet/make friends, and this was a good hostel. Every week there was a free BBQ and sandwich night which helps those who are traveling on a budget! The rooms are a little small... More

One of the best hostel experiences I have ever had. You pay a little bit more than the average hostel, but the quality of this stay makes it worth it. Lots of free food, great advice from staff, and friendly people on staff. Felt like home!

I stayed at this hostel for a month in December and it was so good that I had to come back. There is no other hostel in Perth like it! You can save so much money on food, they do free sandwich days twice a week and BBQs in the summer. The rooms are very homely and the general atmosphere... More

I've just travelled the East Coast and Perth was just a stop off on my home for a few days...definitely wish I was staying here longer at this hostel. It's such a great place to be, everyone is friendly and respectful of each other. It's the first real trustworthy sort of place I've stayed and felt so comfortable in. And... More
