Britannia on William
Ranked #36 of 56 Speciality Lodging in Perth
Reviewed 9 November 2016

The Place is Ok, You can get a single room,or Share with people. You can Cook your own food on a communal stove (5 people at a time cooking). Showers and Bathroom are on the end of each Hallway mens and women separately, (not in the room). There is Free internet outside of your room (not inside) although Perth has Free Wifi in the city everywhere. My room was very quiet and was able to sleep good. the Bed is nice and comfortable. No TV in the Room, But there is a lounge with a TV. There are Personal computers to rent in the Lobby. Laundry on each floor for three dollars wash/dry. This Place is also Smack in the Middle of Friday-Saturday Party Central/China town area. But I had no Problems what so ever. The Place could us a Makeover and get up to speed. otherwise if you are not picky this will be an average place to stay.

Room Tip: rooms in the Back are quieter.

The hotel is just very basic. I got a single room. I had 1 bed, 1 table, 1 chair, 1 fan, and 1 bedside table with 3 drawers. Thats it. But this is more than the bare minimum for a night stay at the price i paid. The hostel is clean, but need maintenance/touch up frequently. It is located about 10mins walk from the cbd. For the price i paid at tgis location, i dont have any complaint!

NO bed bug was found in my room. kudos!

Don't expect any courtesy when it comes to "late checkout". The hostel was pretty empty, nevertheless I couldn't leave any minute late otherwise I would lose the key deposit or have to pay for another day. Shame, very greedy. Sometimes you become blind if you think only about the money.
Anyway, even being a very old building, the elevator was working, that's the good side.

Hi Thanks for the feedback, it was explained that the reason we could not give late check out was that someone was booked into that room. Option where given to use facilities, nothing greedy about it, sometimes situation do not suit people and their first reaction is a negative one. If we can help with anything in the future please do not hesitate to ask. Britannia prides itself with great facilities that suit a budget, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns.

This hostel is huge, but it still clean. Room are pretty spacious but can be warm(fortunately we had fans). The location is great, the wifi is only available in the courtyard. The kitchen is ok but can get really warm. I did not stay a long time but I don't have bad memories. This hostel is big but clean and correct.

Good points - free wifi even though it's only in the reception area. Facilities for printing, scanning and use of computers. Toilets and showers excellent - there is a cubicle before the shower tray so you can keep your valuables and clothes with you when showering and everything very clean. Lots of places to eat nearby. Poor points - customer service with a smile could help; can be noisy from street noise (the hostel itself is normal ie there are always some inconsiderate people coming in in the early hours); rooms could be cleaner; no free tea or coffee; no Air con but very few hostels have it anyway.
