Such a nice place to start your Australia adventure. Met a lot of nice people which I am still meeting during my travels here and there and had heaps of fun! Hostel is directly in front the beautiful Cottesloe Beach, where the sea is incredibly clear and you can snorkel very well. Staff is very nice and friendly. The rooms... More

The facilities were good. I was in a dorm of 6 which had its own ensuite bathroom plus there is another single bathroom just down the hall. Everyone gets a locker plus a shelf for food and there was a bar fridge in the room as well. A hanging rack with coat hangers and a small table with a mirror... More

Very friendly, helpful staff. Located right across from the beach. Comfy bed. We had a double room with our own bathroom. The only complaint was noise. The drinking games continued outside our window (in the courtyard) until close to midnight. Would be a great place for those who like to party. Coffee shop next door has great coffee.

We stayed at this hostel for two weeks on arrival in Australia. It was simple to get to from Perth station, getting off at either Grant Street or Cottesloe it is about a fifteen minute walk to the hostel. Hostel itself had a great location, right on the beach, however there wasnt really much to do in the area. It... More

No one can doubt the location of this hostel. The views you get from you room are beautiful. But I fear that this is the only redeeming quality of this hostel. I checked in with ease (beware there is a $20 deposit for your room key), but was offered no help, from the man who checked me and was showing... More

There's no doubt this hostel is in a great location, so near Cottesloe beach and tied in with a bar and bottelo next door. Staff were very helpful and my room was clean enough. It's a little old with creeky wooden floors and no elevator to the upper level. But has everything you need with a kitchen and a lounge... More
