I love the backpacker experience unfortunately my 60year old friend found it too noisy. I slept well as beds were comfortable. Facities included our own bathroom, table and chairs, hanging space, fridge, kettle, ironing board and iron. You could hire crockery and available kitchen to make meals. We only stayed one night as the atmosphere was really for the younger...

Dorm, bathroom and kitchen facilities were dirty. Food was kept in rooms which also caused a bad smell. Location was good and there is plenty if free parking. Would not return to this hostel or recommend to anyone.

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...

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...

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...

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...
