“More like a shared house - very good”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

For me it was the best hostel i' ve ever been! It is more like a shared house rather then a hostel. I was able to have a good rest after work in the living room, watch some movies & series on TV and if I wanted to have a chat I just went to the kitchen area.

The owner brought us his own DVD from home to watch some movies.

The hostel is clean every day, the Kitchen has good stuff to cock, a freezer & fritsch. Our room number 1 was pretty big.

The only negative thing for me personally was the club next door, it was to loud on the weekends but if have put earplugs in it was fine for me.

I live in sydney and I had to visit perth for some work related thing. I couldn't get any accommodation from my office . So I moved in to Backpackers International for night stay. The environment was utterly delightful and the attendants were nice too. Yes, the kitchen was lil unhygienic, but the food was good. Its quite affordable and comfortable. I liked my stay @ Backpackers International.

Room Tip: Its good. The room I stayed in was a corner room and I guess its value for money.

WE DO NOT recommend International Backpackers.It is the most dirty place I have ever been under all lowest standards. No cleaning staff, always dirty kitchen, balcony and (only 4) bathrooms.
The reception staff changes very offen, manager not customer friendly.
No air condition, the furnish broken, loud beds.

I really regret that we spent our money for such not worth one dollar place.

I stayed at the female dorms of this hostel: Not very helpfull/friendly staff. The rooms (bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen) were not clean at all. Also the kitchen is very small and has not enough cooking supplies and a lot off them don't work very well at all and there are no (clean) towels. A lot of sites say that there is air conditioning, and there is... but its just not working. In the summer it is way to hot! I would definitely NOT recommend this hostel. DON'T GO HERE!

Room Tip: Just don't go here at all.

We stayed in 5 different hostels in Perth and this was, by far, the worst! Dirty smelly rooms with no windows, messy reception and yes, the kitchen seems huge, but in return it was terribly disgusting (and the fridge broke). The manager would allow guests to work in the reception, but the pay was 50 dollars for 12 hours work - and the "receptionists" had no idea what they were doing..
Wouldn't even recommend this place to a fly

I stayed several months at International, and i really enjoyed my stay there. I recommand this place for backpackers who want to meet people and party. The hostel is located in Northbridge where all the pubs and clubs are, so it's noisy on the Weekend. The hostel is cleaned everyday but lots of workers are staying in the hostel and when they re back from work they messed the showers and the rooms. The kitchen is big but there is a lack of investments, so very few pans and cups. The TV lounge is Ok, with Sky sport so you can follow the English premier league. There is a balcony where you can have some drinks with people which is quite nice but always very dirty with always broken bottles on the floor. Be also aware that there is no refund!!

I stayed here in march for 4 nights it was absolutely disgusting. Me and a friend stayed in the mixed hostel whilst my sister and cousin stayed in the girls - the girls hostel isn't as bad but it is still very cramped and quite dirty.
The mixed hostel is horrendous. It looks like a university house, there is no regular cleaning so everything is filthy the outside area is covered in cigarette butts and bottle tops. The rooms were so hot (I was in a 10 bed dorm but they managed to squeeze 12 in somehow!) so everyone put bins in the doorways to let air circulate - the bins then got confiscated :/ they also say that they provide free breakfast, which basically means that if the owner can be bothered to get up and come to the hostel she brings a box of cereal and a carton of milk - for over 60 people. The owner is the worst person I've ever met for customer service, she is rude, obnoxious, patronising, antagonising and extremely intimidating - she thinks she's doing you a favour by letting you stay there!
Also they have a system whereby if you don't pay for your bed before check out time that's it it's gone to some one else - but be prepared its like that I'm almost every hostel in Perth.
Northbridge is a cool place to be as all backpackers stay here but don't stay at this hostel it'll ruin your stay.
