I was satisfied with this hostel even it was only 1 night stay. I have stayed the other hostels in Perth before but they were really noisy at night because people had a party every night, while this hostel was calm and quiete, which I consider it is the most important thing for hostels. During the night I enjoyed reading books, doing net surfing.(it offers free wifi!) and having dinner a restaurant near this hostel.

Good - Staff are nice and friendly, free wifi is great and is very quick, location is OK - just outside Northbridge's bars and cafes. Bad - the place feels run down and could do with a bit of money being spent on it. The kitchen has got an old CRT television with two garden chairs in there, there isn't much fridge space, and the bathroom is tiny - the sinks are right in front of the showers and there is nowhere to put clothes etc when having a shower.
