When we booked this backpackers for one night for three persons, we said : It's the cheapest so it can be not very clean and a little messy but it's just for one night so we will don't care...

It's true, the place smell bad (the worst in the room...), it's very warm and no air cond, my room has no door, the key is useless since everybody can enter everywhere at every time, the bed are awful, the kitchen is very dirty...

But after one night, we can said that the worst was not the place but this is the organisation !
During the night, i was waked up by an other backpacker since the staff gave me his bed and my two others friends were waked up two times for the same matter ! And the backpackers is full so the unlucky persons sleep on the couches…
In the morning, it's written that a breakfast must be in the kitchen at 8 a.m, we never saw it...
When we arrived, we let $20 of deposit for each person and we was agreed that we will have the check out at 9 a.m for giving the key and picking up our $60. But when we wanted to leave the backpackers the day after this very bad night, the office opened at 10 a.m ! But we couldn't wait this hours and we had to leave... So, for picking up our $60 we would be obliged to return at the backpackers in the same day !

For this many reasons, i not advise this hostel... We just wanted to sleep somewhere and we have passed a very bad night...

Room Tip: Mine has no door so good luck !

I stayed at Planet Inn for 3 weeks and had a great time. It is very easy to meet people and socialise at this hostel, great atmosphere and very relaxed. There is a pool table, bar and outside area. The location is great, short walk to Leaderville which is a lovely area, it is also close to Northbridge and the city for bars and clubs. The night manager Keva is fantastic, very friendly, helpful and outgoing. I will stay there again if I am back in Perth .

stayed for 10 days. excellent place, great guests, management and staff. All the basics, lockers in rooms and kitchen with your own travel padlock needed. Clean sheets on request. No byo alcohol allowed and very strict but otherwise great place to stay with free bus to Perth City right outside. Chris Thompson

Price/performance ratio is ok. Based on price you cannot expect something fancy - but this hostel is really only for travellers doing hardcore budget optimization.

Dorm: I think on the matress ly 6000 Guests. Please replace. Food, Luggage and other thinks are spread out.

Staff: Lottery because they are other travellers.... I had luck, very friendly.

Location: If you goto Airport then it is too far: 40 min on foot to
George Terrace (Bus 37 to Airport; Station for Airport Shuttle). Two Blocks to North.

TV very old and yellow screen (strange).

Wifi: a handfull outlets for many guests. Wifi stops working from time to time. Postive: It is free.

Shower: Needs Remodelling. Access via Common Room. Strange.

If you go to Perth never stay at this hostel.
Was suppossed to stay there for 3 nights but left after too.
Had to stay in the staff room. 2 bunk beds. I was sleeping in one above me a french couple who worked there and were having sex all night. Did not bother them that there were other people in the room. I went outside to sit in the living room as people were having a fight at 4am screaming there heads of and none of the stuff bothered to check on them or keep them quiet.
Second night people kept on coming in the room as there was no lock on the door. This kept going on till 6am. Never had a worse accommodation.
Apart from that rooms were dirty and terrible smelly. No toilet paper all evening, night and morning although the staff girls shared the same bathrooms and were aware of the situation.
Only possitive thing was that they refunded me the money for the third night because I left.
