“Clean & well-located”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

The Emperor's Crown Hostel in Perth is among the best that I've stayed in. It's big with a wide range of rooms available. I stayed in dorms & a double & both were extremely clean & tidy. The bathrooms were also very clean. There is a full kitchen, laundry facilities & the hostel is just a short walk from Perth trains & buses. I would highly recommend this hostel & would stay here again if in Perth.

I found empore crown to be a friendly place to rewind and relax ,only a short stroll to the city centre and transport with clean establishment and helpful staff it has a fully equipted kitchen and off street parking with internet and tv rooms there is everything there to make any one comfortable . I totally enjoyed my stay there.

Room Tip: dorm rooms there are good with mixed and female and male dorms and the price is very affordable

Depending in what your looking for in a hostel this was right up my street having just landing back in oz after some traveling ,and having many experiences of the hostel life in oz!iv stayed in many hostels in here and this was probably the best iv stayed in.This is not a mad party hostel like some (although not like others they let you drink on the premasis)but you can drink and socialize in the back.The kitchen is clean and not so packed at meal times like other hostels, lots of cutlery and utensils on offer to use as well.The hostel is very clean and tidy itself,rooms are clean but you also have to keep it clean as cleaners dont clean in rooms everyday unless you ask.Toilets and showers very clean,showers are excellent for a hostel as well nice and powerful and hot!this is quite chilled hostel so you do get a good night sleep (i did in my stay)plus air con in the rooms witch is a bonus in the hot ozzy summers.Theirs also a big TV room with sofas all around dvds and foxtell to watch if you just fancy chillaxing.Location is great as well 5min walk to the north bridge where all the nightlife is,and 5 min walk into the Perth city center.Only big downfall with this place is the WiFi is expensive for what you get IMO.This place is slightly bit more expensive than other hostels in Perth but its worth it as you do get little bit more cleanliness and peace and quite!if thats what your looking for this is place for you!!all in all great stay here:)

Room Tip: Get a room away from the courtyard unless you want to here everyone in their.although it does shut a...

Stayed here for 4 nights recently and no complaints. 2 nights in dorm and 2 nights in own room. Very well run and popular place tucked out of the way close to city centre. 5 minutes to entertainment hub of Northbridge for food, drink and dancing. Expensive for what it is but this is still good value in extortionate Perth! Kindly let me leave bags and return for shower before flight out on last day.

This is the first place I stayed upon arriving in Australia. Located in what seems a quiet area when you first arrive, you will quickly realize everything is conveniently located, The reception area was clean and tidy, the kitchen was immaculate. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm which had Air con, this is a massive plus at night when it remains very hot. The bathrooms were clean and the outdoor areas were also tidy. The outdoor area shuts at 11pm so there is no risk of noise while you are sleeping. The staff were also very helpful.


If you want to be critical the free wifi on offer is a little useless, unless your planning to send one email a week.

The hostel itself is OK, its in a good location about 5 maybe 10 minute walk to the city centre and the train station. The room i was staying in (six bed dorm) was very clean and a good size the bathrooms were pretty clean as well to be fair. I didnt use the kitchen as was only there a couple days but apperenlty its not the cleanest as it is used by the cafe next door sometimes. But this didnt bother me as i wasnt using it, Was pretty quiet so if you want a good nights sleep then would be a good place to stay.

The major disadvantage of this hostel is the lack of decent communal areas. Theres an outside area but its only one bench so can only seat a few people. So its not a particualrly good place to meet people. Wouldnt stay here if you are travelliing on your own. Apart from that its alright.

I've booked four nights in this hostel, overall the hostel is not so bad, apart of the personal unsafe location especially during night, but the room was impossible! I should have shared the room with old and unclean people, with deteriorate foods (apple, cracker, biscuits) and drink(beers) on the night table, seems that people were living there.. After the first night i moved into an hotel in perth center and the staff refuse to give me back my money, but immediately cancelled my booking for the following days in order to get another client and so other money, apart of mine.
I would have for sure survive in this hostel these days, but not absolutely i would have enjoyed my stay.
