Stayed here for one night. The hotel has a very strong backpacker feel (down to what appear to be backpackers working the front desk!). The rooms come off corridors running the length of the building, leading to stairs at either end, that are left open during the day. I stayed on the same level as reception and there was a lot of corridor traffic which made the room quite noisy. It's almost as if the door and walls aren't there, as far as noise goes - very minimal insulation. The management is obviously well aware of this, as they have a container full of earplugs next to the containers of coffee and tea sachets. I chose not to use the earplugs which meant every time another group came back from dinner/the pub/wherever, I woke up - and got woken up very early as soon as the toilets and showers started going on my floor and the one above me in the morning. The bathroom is tiny but the hot water was fine.
On the plus side, it's cheap for Perth, it was clean, free wireless internet is great and there is a handy Shell servo just around the corner for basic supplies, and a free CAT bus stop right in front of the hotel that I caught straight to Perth city shopping centre. The included breakfast was fine - coffee bags (for the early-comers, instant sachets for the late!), fruit toast, juice, cereal etc. Bed was fine. Also I was able to use the free parking which was very handy. The tradeoff was that I only got about five hours of interrupted sleep and was quite cranky for my long drive the next day.
