Myself and my girlfriend had been working around Perth for the past couple of months and had been staying with work colleagues who very nicely put us up, however we needed somewhere in Perth a couple of nights before flying out and the old swan barracks was really decent priced and was easy to book into, the staff here are so friendly and helpful, the dark haired male who works the bar is such a good laugh and is very sociable with everyone! The place is a bit dated however this was of no concern of mine as the price we were paying we didn't expect a really posh place! We stayed in a 6 person dorm, there is lockers provided which so far are the best sized ones we've come across in a hostel in WA however we noticed some weren't looking too good, luckily we got good ones! The only real negative was the room seemed to be too small for 6 people so it was a little squashed but for a couple of nights we were not worried about this! Personally I would recommend staying at this hostel as the size and amount of guests makes it very social and has a great atmosphere, so people staying in one hostel for a long period of time would be well suited to this hostel!
