Cheaper than other backpackers in the area, and better than other hostels with the same price/night. However there are just 3 toilets, always very dirty and you have often to wait for... This backpackers is definitely unclean and the staff not kind

We stayed in the ladies section of the hostel (it was just up the street from the mixed hostel). It was lovely and was cleaned daily. The only down fall is that it is joined onto a nightclub so weekends can be noisy but hostels in general will be noisy. Met some really cool people there and will deff return. Its ideally located and close to all the pubs and nightclubs as well as shops etc and the buses run right past the door. I would deff recommend for anyone to stay here- was the best hostel experience since we arrived in Perth!!

I chose to stay here as it was cheap. I was under no allusion that it would be amazing but from the website I assumed it would be of an acceptable standard. When I arrived the girl on reception was very friendly and directed me to my room. The room was cramped but not overly more so than any other hostels I had visited. Weirdly there was a double room off my room which appeared to be so small it just fitted a double bed in so the occupants had to keep their stuff in a locker in the main dorm room. The kitchen was so bad it made me want to cry. No cups or mugs to be found anywhere. What little cutlery there was was hidden in random places. The pot and pan selection was poor and all required a lot of scrubbing to clean before use. The Gas cookers were temperamental and needed matches or a lighter to actually use. None of which appeared to be present in the kitchen at all. The aircon that was supposed to be in the hostel was either never turned on or was simply ineffectual leading to
All windows in the room needing to be left open. Unfortunately this meant we got to enjoy the sound of a busy road all night at it's full volume. The tv area is
Nice but could do with some beanbags or cushions as there aren't many seats. The 'outback' balcony area may once have been very nice but now appears run down and in need of a makeover.
All in all this hostel could be great but needs some serious tlc at the moment I'd only recommend it to the desperate.

Got there around midnight. Although booked with hostelworld noone knew we were coming. Took quite some time until we were shown our room.
Very interesting... two other girls were living in there already for what looked like ages and had spread out onto the other beds and lockers. The girl giving the room to us just threw all their belongings on the floor and had a wipe over the plasic covered matresses for us. Then we were given sheets - looked very much as already used (and not washed since then).
The music was pumping and laying in bed you could littaraly feel the bass until about 3 or 4 o'clock in the morning.
The bathroom was dirty, the free breakfast was not possible to be eaten because there was simply no glasses, cups or anything like it to have it with. No, not even anything dirty...) The available internet just worked for 5 min, after that some other code was required, we didn't have and there was never anyone around to be asked...
The building and the rooms looked like it used to be a pretty good place that has just run down.
We could definately not recommend this place.
