The rooms are clean and spacious with a locker each as well as a dedicated shelf. The hostel is across the road from the beach and the views are amazing It's 20minutes from Perth and there is a bar nearby as well as a shop and a couple of beach front restaurants/cafés

Location location, location.... Just seconds away from that stunning beach, ocean beach is exactly what it says it is! A hostel with attitude in a gorgeous sunny location. Staff were nice, friendly and helpful. Common areas were clean. We met some lovely people there! Would definitely return!!

The location of this place is amazing. The beach is so close and there is a bus stop on the opposite side of the road to take you to Perth. A supermarket is a 5 minute walk away, or the station and woolworths, 15minutes. However this hostel is full of people who are staying there long term and working in...

I have stayed at the OBB many times during the last year and have always been happy and welcomed by the backpackers that were staying there at the time.

I spent over a year backpacking around and stayed in tons of hostels but never one as amazing as OBB. I met the most wonderful characters, both guests and staff and never felt so welcome and homely. It's like living in a big house with all your friends! There's a family vibe going on, everyone looks out for each other....

I wasn't sure what to expect when I came to Western Australia, whether I'd like it or just pass right through. The one thing that kept repeating in my head were the words from a traveling couple I'd met in Bondi Beach "Cottesloe Beach has this hostel right on the water that we stayed for months in, it was one...

Without doubt the best hostel i've stayed in. The staff are polite and personable, the rooms are clean and spacious, the residents are friendly and very welcoming. Its a home for anyone and everyone; whether you want to have fun with the other residents in the courtyard or have some alone time and watch tv. Kitchen facilities are beautifully maintained...
