I had a bad time in Perth at this backpack. Maybe it will get better soon but: Nightclub downstairs so impossible to sleep at night, my bed was litterally shaking; cockroaches on the wall of my bedroom, dirty, bad mattress, no plates in the kitchen,...

If you want to sit for eating, you have to sit in a couch... - nice... More

For me it was the best hostel i' ve ever been! It is more like a shared house rather then a hostel. I was able to have a good rest after work in the living room, watch some movies & series on TV and if I wanted to have a chat I just went to the kitchen area. The owner... More

I live in sydney and I had to visit perth for some work related thing. I couldn't get any accommodation from my office . So I moved in to Backpackers International for night stay. The environment was utterly delightful and the attendants were nice too. Yes, the kitchen was lil unhygienic, but the food was good. Its quite affordable and... More

The reception staff changes very offen, manager not customer friendly. No air condition, the furnish broken, loud beds. I really regret that we spent our money for such not worth... More

Also the kitchen is very small and has not enough cooking supplies and a lot off them don't work very well at all and there are no (clean) towels. A lot of sites say that there is... More

We stayed in 5 different hostels in Perth and this was, by far, the worst! Dirty smelly rooms with no windows, messy reception and yes, the kitchen seems huge, but in return it was terribly disgusting (and the fridge broke). The manager would allow guests to work in the reception, but the pay was 50 dollars for 12 hours work... More

I stayed several months at International, and i really enjoyed my stay there. I recommand this place for backpackers who want to meet people and party. The hostel is located in Northbridge where all the pubs and clubs are, so it's noisy on the Weekend. The hostel is cleaned everyday but lots of workers are staying in the hostel and... More
