Booked a double room ensuite here and disappointed given that it was the price of a hotel room (although Perth is very expensive at times). The private rooms are tired (but with all facilities including TV, DVD player, aircon, fridge and a good shower). The room was clean but had creaking floor boards and reminded me of a student bedsit to be honest. The room was not cleaned or made-up in five days.
HOWEVER as a hostel this is one of the friendliest, best-run hostels I have ever come across. The communal shower and toilet facilities are spotless and the dorms not too big (I had my last night coming back from Rottnest in a dorm bed). There are also superb and spotless communal kitchen and lounge TV facilities with flat screen tellies. Also really cheap internet facilities (and wi-fi).
It is also brilliantly-placed for Northbridge nite spots, train station and free CBD circular bus.
NOTE: my rating is for the hostel not the private room I had
