The room itself was disguiating, it was quite small and a Little bit dirty, the floor in front of our room was muddy and overflowded with water.... More

The Old Fire Station changed my life...since that day I came in Freo - back in 2008! I was supposed to stay for a few nights, and I ended up staying for months, finding the love of my life and living the most incredible adventures. I will always come back here to find happiness, joy, fun, new and old friends.... More

I've been there in December and every day in this hostel there was something going on, it was fantastic! The hostel is very comfortable, well equipped and full of amazing and friendly people willing to have good fun. Rooms are clean and tidy, the staff is always there to help. Great stay!

The hostel is cool, clean and pretty unique. The staff is awesome and friendly. Their backyard holds ping pong championships and wicked parties week in-week out. The vibe there is vibrant! Love the place... it's just that Italian guy that ruins it all... only kidding :D

Firstly if you're thinking of staying in Perth, Freo is one of the best places to be. Honestly one of the best hostels I have stay in whilst traveling and in Australia. I stayed here for three months, working and traveling. Attracts almost all the good people and the dollar or two extra in the price is worth a million.... More

When I first checked into the OFS I booked for three nights; when I eventually left I was booking for a month at a time. What was just going to be a few days checking out Fremantle, became months and a home base to explore WA. Some of the most memorable days of my life. I met amazing people and... More

I'm not sure why I chose the Old Fire Station but I just quickly booked a 2 night stay the night before my flight left the USA for Perth. After those 2 nights I still wasn't sure of my plans so I booked a few more. Upon doing so Riccardo told me "oh yes, everyone stays longer than they think",... More
