“Good place to stay.”
Reviewed 19 April 2012

Great place to stay and to meet a lot of backpackers, nice service. Could do with better supplies in the kitchen.
Had an awesome time there and met fantastic friends.

Stayed here for a while and I have to say it was definitely the best hostel I stayed at while in Perth. Clean, tidy and lovely staff and people.

Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about Perth, and if they didn't know the answer to a question they found out the answer. Location is brilliant, 5 minutes walk from city centre.

Stayed in a dorm and a double room while I was here. The double room is definitely worth the extra cost, simple and basic but has everything you need. Nothing wrong with the dorms but it was nice to have a bit of privacy.

Went to Margaret River after this and stayed in their hostel down there which was also very good.

All in all hard to fault!

I stayed here for 5 nights with my friend and we really liked this hostel! We had an en suite room, it was clean and tidy with comfortable beds and clean linen. For the first two days we only had one towel as there was a problem with the linen delivery but the staff were really helpful and apologetic - Dirk on reception even offered us his own towel! We declined but thought that was so nice of him to offer :o) I thought this place was really good value for money, there is a lovely little cafe next door and Northbridge is only a 5 min walk away with all the pubs, clubs and restaurants than you want. There was a courtyard outside where people gathered to drink, chat and play music. our room was right over this but there was a strict rule that it had to be cleared by 2230 hrs so we weren't kept up all night by noise. All in all I would say big thumbs up, I will def stay again when I'm in Perth.

Thank you for your review! Apologies again for the linen problem we encountered during your stay here - we try our best but sometimes things happen which are beyond our control.

Please come and stay with us again next time you are in Perth, it was a pleasure to have you here!

We stayed here for 2 nights in october 2011.

Honestly, we never stayed at any backpackers hostel before. So we really don't know what to expect. But since cost of accomodation in Perth is indeed expensive (anywhere!).. We chosed the ensuite bedroom (not the dorm).

We arrived on early saturday morning. I almost asked the taxi driver to drive us back to the airport. Hehe. The scene that greet us was not pleasant. Drunken males and females walking nearby it's vicinity. Inside the sofa area, lots of beer cans and dirty and messy surrounding.

However, the receptionists were always helpful and friendly. And when we got into our ensite bedroom.. We're like i a world of our own. Definitely not Hilton, but it's clean and comfortable. So that's enough for us.

Location wise.. quite good.. Only 5 minutes walk to the junction whereby there's Taka Japanese Restaurant. Less than that to stop no. 7 of blue cat (juat behind the block).

Recommended for single or couples. But i woud not recommend any backpackers hostel to couples with young kids (better spend the extra money for more comfort of a hotel)

Room Tip: Defiitely choose the room with ensuite bathroom. However, i did went to the common bathroom while wa...

Given some of the other hostels we had stayed in our trip I wasn't impressed with this place, especially given the price. The first impression wasn't that great from check in where the lady on reception wasn't the most accommodating or informative, for instance I wasn't made aware that we would need to hire crockery with a refundable deposit, or that we would need to source our own matches or lighter to use the hobs in the kitchen. We had a private double room which was ok but not as clean as I would hope. The communal kitchen wasn't the most spacious and it was a bit of hassle trying to cook anything during peak times. There were also a lot of rules and about various things, some seemed quite petty. All in all I wouldn't stay here or recommend it. The internet was also quite pricey especially given the fact that some hostels we stayed at managed to provide free internet.
