Britannia on William
Ranked #30 of 52 Specialty Lodging in Perth
Reviewed February 9, 2012

We had a double room which was pretty basic (1 chair, 2 beds and a fan), and a little cell like, but fine overall. The bathrooms are excellent, loads of shower stalls, cleaned regularly and never busy either! The kitchen has a massive line of hobs, which could potentially house many guests cooking, although this specific area was a little narrow! Plenty of communal space away from the hobs for eating etc.

Room Tip: Second floor seemed quieter, and bathrooms were always pretty much empty, despite hostel apparently...

I stayed here for 1 night in the 4 bed dorm. The room was basic,there were no lockers or furniture to store luggage. It wasn't the easiest top bunk to reach either. I'd to climb up the bottom of the bed as there was no usual side ladder which was awkward to do as there was load of luggage at the base of the bed. The bed itself was comfortable. Seemed to be a good vibe throughout hostel and clean bathroom/showers. Great location. Short walk to cbd and to NIB stadium.

A huge old house, efficiently run by fun people. Smack in the middle of town, close too many bars and super clean. No to expensive Wifi and internet. It seemed many found a long term place here and I don't blame them. If you're going to Perth you have no choice but to stay here!

We arrived here for one nights stay prior to our train journey. When we arrived, the staff were very helpful and friendly but unfortunately placed us in the wrong room. We then discovered that our booking had been messed up by ?booking company/?hostel and ended up sharing dorms for the night-we had booked a private room. Initially, we were very angry and made this known to the booking company and to the hostel. The staff at the hostel were apologetic and went out of there way to make the stay more comfortable for us. The dorm itself was very basic but had very comfortable beds. The shower facilities were excellent and we were able to get a good nights sleep. This huge hostel is right in the centre of Perth making it ideal for people who want to be in the thick of it.

This hostel has excellent facilities good Internet and clean sheets. The location is within easy reach of all transport and has plenty of bars and restaurants surrounding it. The downfall was the room no window and no air con the heat was unbearable and the room was like a prison cell.

I moved to this hostel from beatty lodge which was a kip, I was very impressed with britannia... The staff couldn't be more helpful, the room was great.. nice comfortable CLEAN bed and sheets... The toilets/showers are always clean... There's a big, well equipped kitchen.. All together, the place is spot on...
The only negative i can find is that occasionally the street below can be noisy (sat night) but nothing too bad to stop me sleeping....
