It's a cool building and it's in a fair location, shops down the road, free bus stop just outside. You can't beat the price per night with breakfast included and the wifi is very good BUT it's not clean; there are bugs in the kitchen and flies all over the common room. The wooden floors and bad beds will ensure...

Near the centre, free bus. Cheap (you're gonna wanna up your budget). Plenty of jobs available as these guys are surely getting sacked soon 😂 Couldn't get our beds til 7pm (check in 11) staff are inept and work shy. You have to keep asking. It is a grimey crack den. Free brekky is a lie. Kitchen is not pleasant...

This hostel needs bulldozing down. It's in an awful state. The mattresses, pillows and duvets have seen better days. Cockroaches everywhere. Two staff members behind reception were friendly and helpful but others walked around and stared at you like you were trespassing. Two German staff members were incredibly rude to me in the kitchen after I couldn't understand what she...

Very dirty, messy and disgusting! Cockroaches and bugs all over. Stinky rooms, no windows, no door on washroom. No parking available. No breakfast, however advertised as included. Terrible and rude manager! Stay away at all costs, avoid this place. Gergely Szentpeteri

Hey I stayed here for around 4 weeks and it was one of the best hostels I stayed so far. Table tennis, nice TV room and a big lounge outside with comfy chairs. The people here were amazing and everyone was always helpful and friendly

I wish this place was a big joke, it was horrible, it looks like a place for junky people, everything is very disgusting, there is no windows in the rooms so the smell is horrible, there is no hot water in the shower, the kitchen was closed all day, and of course they don't say anything while you arrive, and...

Honestly is a wonderful place, everyone who stays is dead friendly and the staff couldn't be more helpful! Perfect for backpackers wanting the ultimate experience as the common room and communal areas are all set up so you can get to know everyone. Really enjoyed my stay here.

Amesome hostel like a home away from home. Staff are amazing and environment is good to make new friends in. Next time I'm in Perth I'll be back there. The manager friendly and does BBQ for everyone. I recommend to anyone traveling to Perth

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Planet Inn where you ''won't be lonely!''Our goal is to help you to "Dare to be Different" as you explore new experiences in our wonderful part of the world that we Australians call "The Lucky Country".We first began trading in 1996 with a backpackers hostel then called Redbackpackers, which in 2000 evolved into Club Red Backpackers. The evolution continued in 2004 as the hostel enjoyed a makeover and become Planet Inn Backpackers.This accommodation business can also arrange your employment, sightseeing and your activities and entertainment program.We pride ourselves on our staff's commitment to friendly and professional service, coupled with experience and local knowledge to help you make your visit "Down Under" a truly memorable experienceThe beauty of Planet Inn Backpackers is that we are an International Backpacker which mean that the people that are staying here are all overseas travellers who want to explore Oz just like yourself. We offer a 24 hour airport pickup service with any booking of seven days or more! ... more   less
