Location is really great. You are right in the heart of Northbridge. There are many eateries and shops nearby plus Perth train station, and the CBD is just 15mins away on foot. But that's the only good thing about this hostel.
Single room was very small and noisy, with noise coming from the main street. You had to have your window opened to get some air. Bed was very old and uncomfortable and the pillow was paper thin and completely useless. I had to put lots of my clothes under the pillow to make it higher. Room carpet was completely stained and the whole place wasn't too clean. It is an old house but overall not kept very nice.
Free wifi was "working" only in the reception area. I said "working" because most of the time it was so slow that you couldn't even download an e-mail. Arriving from places like Indonesia and Vietnam where you have fast free wifi in every place, I couldn't believe that this was happening in Australia!
Staff was so-so. Just ok. Nothing beyond ok.
