Quite a good place to stay. We stayed 2 nights in a private double standard room. It was ok for a backpack/youth hostel. There is a free breakfast, that's great. A bit far for from the centre (15min walk) or there are buses.

Hi Pietro, Many thanks for taking the time to leave us your feedback, it's much appreciated. I'm glad you enjoyed the free breakfast. Next month we are also introducing a (very) cheap evening group meal so watch out for that! Your right, we're a 5 minute bus ride or a 15 minute walk from the CBD. I hope you had...

Hostel is conveniently located near the east Perth terminal ideal for catching a bus. Smart busy hostel only stayed one night. Room was very spacious had lockers and a lovely en suite. Unfortunately the wifi was only down stairs. Breakfast was also included in the price, would definitely stay again!

Nice backpackers in downtown perth, within walking distance of the CBD, bus stop right in front of their door. Supermarket IGA and enough nice cafes and restaurants close by. Staff is friendly, rooms and kitchen are clean and it's great to have a swimming pool with this weather. It's a bit more expensive than other hostels, but it's clean and...

We stayed here over several days. Throughout the day the music is overbearingly pumping. And even though there is a noise restriction at night, people were still carrying on into the wee hours. Our window couldnt close which we only realised upon leaving. We stayed in the private room and were not given towels. If you have a family or...

Hi Ivana, Many thanks for your feedback. We are an international backpacker hostel and our main demographic is always going to be young holiday makers. I'd agree - it's important for guests to consider this, and the noise they may create, when choosing to stay with us. With that said, we have successfully hosted families, school groups, sports teams and...

Arrived in Perth from Thailand, and wasn't impressed with the prices of anything in Australia. This hostel had a volleyball court which was good fun, and an outdoor pool. Rooms were average, No complaints. Id stop here again if i ever went back to Australia, which i wont.

Hi Rick, Many thanks for your honest and frank review. I agree- Australia can be quiet expensive, especially in the context of arriving from South East Asia. A lot of our guests will arrive with Working Holiday Visas and work a casual job to fund their time here. When you consider a waitress or bartender can make +$20 p/hour, this...
