- People are always drunken until late in the morning and shout, talk and sing drunken at the badly soundproofed floors. - Doors don't give enough noise protection because there is a 3 cm gap between the doors and the floor - drugs get consumed a LOT! - under the hostel there is a huge pub where people celebrate EVERY...

We stayed in a private double. It was small but functional and clean with its own table & chairs and fridge. Service was excellent; all staff were friendly and helpful. Bus stop only across the road to both Fremantle and CBD. Only downside was the atmosphere; a lot of long term residents who occupied the courtyard most of the time.... More

Stayed at OBH backpackers on the weekend for two nights whilst Stereosonic was on. Shared a 6 person dorm with friends, clean enough and good if all you're wanting to do in the room is sleep. On check in they scanned my ID and I had to prompt the guy at reception to give it back to me as he... More

First off when I arrived I was told my booking was for the wrong day and that they had no room for me and my partner in a dorm. The only room they had 'apparently' was a double which was twice the price we were originally expecting to pay. I was then told there was no room for me to... More

Really easy going hostel and staff always happy to help. Great location about 5 mins to the train station, bus stop on the doorstep and 2 mins away from the beach and supermarket. Great atmosphere in the hostel with a really friendly environment. Rooms are spacious and ensuite. Kitchen is slightly small but only tends to get busy for about... More

This was the 1st hostel I stayed in, in Australia and still ranks as my favourite. It's a road crossing from the beach, right next door to the OBH and it's epic Sunday sessions. The town of Cottesloe itself is really nice and about halfway between the city and Freo. The kitchen is small but has plenty fridge and storage... More

I stayed one night in the female dorm. The room was very messy, smelly and dirty, shower room is also dirty. I was hardly to staying in the room cuz of that. They give me the blanket, bed sheet and pillow, which are so smelly and I think it wasn't washed after the previous usage. This is not the only... More

I stayed at this backpackers for 5 weeks and loved it. The location is incredible if you enjoy the beach as it is lyterally on your door step. The train station is a little bit of an effort to walk to but not too bad, its a good 15-20 minute walk, but there are bus stops outside the hostel. The... More

I have rated this place 'poor' and not 'terrible' as it was close to the beach, had a fridge and kettle in the private room and the shower was decent. The room is grubby, dubious stains on the walls etc. The hostel has signs saying no alcohol, no noise after 11pm etc but these are ignored and the hostel residents,... More

The service is very good!!!! The staff are very helpful and nice. The location is good because it's close to the beach. But the bedroom and bathroom are horrible! People lived this hostel. I've never seen something like that!!!! Clothes and foods everywhere!!!!
