Reviewed 19 April 2011

I stayed at Beatty lodge for one night with a few friends, after this one night we couldn't wait to get out of the place. The kitchen was shocking! I have never seen something so unhygienic in my life. Our room was really hot, my friend had a blood stain on her sheet, one friend had multiple pieces of gum stuck to the top of the bunk bed and worst of all someone had picked their nose and wiped you know what all over the wall...it was shocking we slept on our towels and covered ourselves so we didnt touch any of the bed, we also didn't use any of the blankets. I work at a dog kennel, the blankets we supply to the dogs at work are far better than those supplied at Beatty lodge! Another shocking part was the fact that at 5am some random opened our door, oh and I got quite a shock when a male cleaner walked into the female toilets. Want some advice? NEVER STAY AT BEATTY LODGE, alright bye I'm gonna go call the health inspector.

This was the first hostel we booked into for our 3 month stay touring Australia, and we couldn't have picked a worse place to start our Oz experience (only chose this because of a lack of availability elsewhere and was cheap for a twin room after arriving from a long flight). As soon as we pulled up outside, we noticed it was a very large hostel, and a group of drunks hanging around the entrance and in reception, some no doubt on something!! The reception were very casual, like it was always like this, checking us in hassle-free. We booked a twin room, which was comfortable enough, decent size, with a single bed each, TV and table. The kitchen was pretty foul, guests failed to wash up their dirty cooking utensils every night, leaving the sinks full of used equipment. Noticed ants crawling around the kitchen surfaces!! Location was very remote, not very close to shops, and definitely nowhere near the town centre. Bus stops were pretty close though which was handy. Now don't get me wrong, we enjoy a night out and a few drinks as much as the next, but this place was BAD!! In the evenings, the hostel was very noisy (despite notices around the hostel informing everyone of quiet time after 11pm) ...the bedroom walls were very thin, could hear people walking along and even just sitting around drinking in the corridor...even got woken up in the early hours by 4 guys playing their TV at high volume next door!! Would have contacted reception, but turns out they close at 11pm and no-one around to contact in the middle of night to deal with these situations...so just took it upon ourselves to knock on next door and give them a firm, grumpy talking to at "3am" (lucky me and my brother are both 6ft3 so can look pretty intimidating if we need to!). Overall, nothing positive to say about this place, lucky was only there 3 nights.

Not a bad location a short bus ride from the city, Leederville has some good shops, cafes and bars.
The hostel was one of the cleanest I have come across while travelling. Rooms were a little hot, they did have fans though. I think some of the dorms had air con, but these were all full.
The staff were great, very friendly and couldn't do enough. They were able to book me on some of the tours I wanted to do.
All in all the hostel was value money and clean.
My only real complaint was that the kitchen was a bit under equipped for the amount of people staying there, could do with a few more cookers and fridges.

Hi Roberio,

Thanks for the awesome feedback!!

The kitchen is definitely an area we are looking to improve. The space is great as it use to a commercial kitchen. It just needs a bit of an update, which we are already working on. We've just had the old walk in fridge fixed up and re-commissioned so there's heaps of space for food now. All we need now is a few more gas burners and ovens and it will really be the "best in west"

Once again, thanks for the feedback Roberio. I hope to welcome you back one day so you can see all the improvements we are making. Please contact me via reply to this message should wish to discuss anything further.

Cheers,

Brendon James
Hostel Manager

I stayed in a single room for 1 week, I had to change rooms twice. But it was painless.
The rooms are ok but without any decoration and each room only has 1 plug outlet. The rooms have no airco but just a fan which takes up the one plug outlet.

It's clean and there are enough toilets and showers and a large kitchen.

The location is not convenient. It's about 10 min walk to the bus stop. But the bus doesn't go very often. Sometimes it's faster to just keep walking into town (about 30 min).

5 minutes walk from the hostel is a street with some restaurants, a supermarket, post office etc.

Hi Anna,

Thank you for the feedback. The only we can improve is going off feedback like your's and we appreciate it very much.

Yes, our location is not is considered central but we often find that the majority of our guests really appreciate that. Our location tends to keep the real "party animals" away and we don't face the same kind of drunken behaviour/security issues as properties in Northbridge or the City.

Bus number 15 runs in to the city every 15 minutes from Newcastle Street and is free. The walk is approximately 600 meters but perhaps you weren't aware of this. I'll speak to my staff and make sure these basic things are being relayed to all guests on arrival.

The decor is getting a little old. We certainly do not disagree with that statement. The exciting thing about that is the owners are re-investing back in to the property and I am currently working on many facility improvement programs, such as;

Room Updates (inc new beds, new TV's, carpet, paint, soft furnishings)
Bathroom Update (new toilets, vanities, tiles, paint, light fittings)
Gym Update (already laid new carpet, paint and new equipment)
Kitchen Update (more burners, ovens and prep area's)
Alfresco extension
New Property Management system
And the list goes on and on..............

My first concept room should be completed by 14/03/11. I have already installed new AC units in the 6 bed dorms/lobby and dining room. Our new lobby is now finished and is a nice place to hang out with wifi, AC and cool tunes from the ipod.

Once again, thanks for the feedback Anna. I hope to welcome you back one day so you can see all the improvements we are making. Please contact me via reply to this message should wish to discuss anything further.

Cheers,

This hostel is clean an big rooms but the staff are rude and power hungry that they made are stay a nightmare . We planned to stay for 3 months but after 2 weeks we couldn't deal with the staff looking down there noses at us and talking to us like something they found on the bottom
of their shoe. My boyfriend started work a week before me so during that week I was at the hostel alone. Because of this the cleaner assumed I was a prostitute and thort everyone should no my apparent dirty behaver! I have never been so insulted ! I wouldn't stay here ever again I'd rather sleep in my boyfriend ute ! I hate it there and enyone in there right mind would stay well clear.
