If you are looking for a quiet place to stay, definitely doesn't recommend this backpackers! But it will suit you if you are a party animal... And I booked a FEMALE-ONLY room, God knew there were a couple slept below to me...so the bed shaked most night...

We don't think of the Billabong as a party hostel but we are a backpackers and we will always have guests that want to party and enjoy their visit to Perth in that way. Even though we can have up to 200 people stay here it's usually just a small group that want to party. We feel we cater for... More

I booked into a double room. I had my own bathroom, a balcony and air-conditioning although I think this is standard for each room. There's a good size pool out the back and its only a short walk from the cbd and from Highgate where there's loads of restaurants, bars and shops. I stayed for 4 nights and got the... More

Feels like you are in a prison here. You are told to go to bed at 11pm. Your plates are served to you in a bag like a prison inmate.

We believe it all depends on what you want. We never tell people to to bed at 11pm. The dinning area is open to 1am. The guests here are very lucky that we allow them to bring in a few drinks to share with there friends but no drinks are allowed after 11pm (a lot of hostels do not allow... More

The pool and aircon was a blessing... Theology only thing that ruined it was the rowdy unclean guests and five flights of stairs. Bbq outdoor deck was stunning! Staff very helpful.... Little bit expensive but lifestyle e worth living. Kitchen needed a clean but that was due to dirty guests. Recommended as your number one hostel
