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

Kitchen, dishes piled up dirty most of the time, rooms overfull and bedbugs in most beds. Showers and toilets, the toilet paper is most of the time not there when needed. Hot water for the showers is fluctuating all the time but mostly COLD. Don't expect a refund for nights not stayed and credit nights aren't honored. The rooms are... More

Globaly dirty and not very nice ut well it's a cheap backpack so... Still the kitchen was always clean and the atmosphere was chill so not too bad after all. Oh yeah they use to provide "breakfast". I tried other ones close to this one but this one was ok in the end

For the rest you pay for what you get, don't expect a lot about comfort, it is still pretty decent though. Personal was friendly. I would recommend it only for... More

I visited in January and according to the pervious reviewer, management has changed. I hope that's true. I have stayed in countless hostels around the world and this is by far the worst. Unfortunately it was my boyfriends first hostel experience and what an experience it was. We saw cockroaches and mice in the kitchen alone (with others witnessing bedbugs)... More

I stayed here back in November when I first arrived in Australia. I'm actually making a point of writing a review now, months later, because it was hands down the worst hostel I've ever been to. Don't go here! Just don't! Myself and my friend ignored the reviews because if how cheap it was and that was a huge mistake.... More

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
