Visting Perth for the first time I wasn't sure what to expect, though looking at previous reviews I knew I had to visit the Witch's Hat. I wasn't sure how long I would stay, though the manager was very accommodating as I continued to extend my stay. By the time I realized it 3 weeks had gone by and I...

I've stayed there 10 days and it felt like home the entire time. It's small but cosy, the TV room is a nice place to chill with a lot of comfy sofas. Easy to meet people as it's not too big ! Staff is lovely and helpful. Would stay there again when I'm back in Perth !

The hostel is not so big and therefore it's easy to get in touch with others. The happy hours in the pub close to the hostel are a great opportunity too to get in touch with the staff or the fellow travellers because you go there together. Breakfast and a good wifi (for oz) is included in the price.

A friend and I stayed here for an extended period of time and it was like a home away from home. In a quiet neighborhood but plenty of restaurants around the corner and a short walk away from Northbridge. The staff there were excellent and very friendly. The cleaners, who were really nice and good looking, kept it one of...

Seen quite a few hostels in Australia and this has been one of the best. Great rooms, friendly staff, clean bathrooms and toilets. I stayed here together with my brother before the start of our trip up the coast. Came here after our flight from Europe and were very friendly welcomed by the staff. Immediately we were told there would...

An eerie incident happened last night. I requested to leave this hostel early but was rejected by the manager. Paid 4 nights, only stayed 2 nights, i'm just asking 2 check out n get my refunds for the other 2 nights that i've already paid. I sent an email to human's right dept on this.

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We have a none refund policy so I offered you to check out early and use the 2 nights you paid for at another occasion. However, I did give you a total refund in the end so this review is not even accurate. I simply changed my mind and...

The staff is kind and very helpful and the other residents too. The rooms are clean. The common parts are cool. the Witch's Hat is well situated. The close neighborhood is calm but not far from Northbridge. Very good ambiance too!

A friend and me did a trip through australia. We stayed in many hostels and hotels in different cities. But the Witch`s Hat was the best of all! Great people ( many germans, british, french and italian people). We all had a great time, because every evening you stay together in the court of the hostel and have fun. The...

If you need some advise for your first stay in Australia there is a lot of backpackers to help you. The hostel is 20 min from the city centre. And, if you need a quiet place because you work, this is the place to be.

Stayed here for a week in a twin room. What a fantastically run and managed hotel. The manager Julia is so funny and could do anything for you. The atmosphere at the hotel is amazing had such a fun time just chilling out and talk to the over guests in the courtyard. The hotel offers a free breakfast daily which...
