Witch's Hat Backpackers Hostel
Ranked #2 of 57 Speciality Lodging in Perth
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 December 2017

If you are travelling to Perth and you want exceptional value for money then the Witches Hat is your answer.

The Witches Hat is in a simply outstanding location close to all that Perth has to offer. The location is within walking distance to the nightlife of Northbridge but far enough away to ensure those that want a quieter trip can. It sits within walking distance to shops, bus stops and the excellent Perth rail service.

This was my 1st experience (at 38 years of age) of staying in a hostel and I would not hesitate to book at the Witches Hat again. The shared amenities are in excellent condition and the hostel offers an experience that is both friendly and fun. Julie and her amazing team went above and beyond to ensure that my trip ran smoothly from start to finish.

The Witches Hat balanced the friendly and fun hostel life with the needs of all its occupants exceptionally well and this ensured that everyone that stayed there (during my stay) was well catered for.

I have stayed in hotels that have offered facilitates and quality at a much lesser standard than the Witches Hat offers. I would not hesitate in recommending this establishment to anyone wanting an affordable and excellent place to stay in Perth.

Thank You.

We stayed for 3 nights and had a great time. The hostel is clean and tidy and the Stuff is very friendly and helpful. The city center is not so far and could be reached by the free cat bus within 15 min.

If anybody is looking for a Backpackers Hostel to stay in when visiting Perth then don’t hesitate to book your stay at this smashing place in Northbridge.
It’s a very reasonably priced place to stay, spotlessly clean, has very friendly staff and clientele and is close to a varied selection of nightlife.
I’ve stayed here 3 times now and will stay here again when I next visit Perth.

I have stayed at hostels all around the world. After having a not-so-pleasant experience with another hostel in Perth, I checked into this hostel and kept extending and extending. Very family-like vibe. Staff is fantastic. Kitchen is large and clean. Rooms are well looked after and facilities are clean. Highly Highly recommended!

A friendly and helpful hostel, a 5 to 10 minute walk from the "Francis" stop on the free Blue Cat bus line which will connect you to the downtown. The uniquely designed building is spacious with dorms and private rooms; the dorms have individual lockers. The kitchen is large with several commercial sized refrigerators. Pots and pans are provided; cutlery and dishes are available for a deposit. Not a party hostel, due to neighbours, the common areas outside are closed from 10 P.M. For those staying out later a key and passcode is provided. A coin laundry is available. There is a small food store opposite, a larger grocery store is about a 15 minute walk away, but for self caterers the "Woolworth's" in the pedestrian mall downtown is better.
