Friendly staff, good atmosphere. Bathrooms are clean. Kitchen is well equipped, and lockers provided in-room are in good condition. Poolside area is a great spot to hang out. Lots to do nearby. Certainly more than 15 mins to CBD(downtown), but not too much more. It's a nice walk, anyway. Breakfast and Facilities make the cost per night well worth it. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay 5/5- Would highly recommend!


A well run hostel with a good atmosphere. Alot of young people about the place wanting to get drunk but the hostel seemed to manage this well. A good idea with the kitchen is that they give you a bag with your own dishes

It is a challenge making sure those people wanting to drink dont go to far and disturb the other guests but the staff do the best they can. Thanks for the review.


Hostel with good atmosphere, there seemed to be people mixing near the pool side. If you were staying here a while you would make friend easily. There is lots of info about activitie, free hostel buses that go to the beach

Thank you. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Come back soon :)


Overall an enjoyable stay, most the staff were pleasant and very helpful. However in our room, the sanitry bin was overflowing. We told staff that it needed emptying but they said that was for an outside company to do. A week later the bin had still not been emptied and we were told to use another bin which also never got emptied. Obviously not the nicest things. Other than that, great place to stay, good facilities and good vibes.

Thanks for the review. We had an issue with an off site company. The Bins should be collected every two weeks. The issue has been solved and the bins are now collected every two weeks.


Grand does what it says . Kitchen would be great only for other guests not cleaning up after themselves other than that fine wouldn't be running back

Thanks for the review. A bit harsh giving it a two for location. We are only a 15 minute walk out of the city centre or a 5 minute bus ride and we are so spoilt to be located on the Beaufort St Cafe strip. It has some of the best cafes, restaurants, bars and funky shops in Perth. If we were too close to the city it would mean no space for the swimming pool or the amazing outdoor area.


Very friendly service always someone that can give assistance

Thank you. We try our best. :)


We loved it!!! The pool area was beautiful. Our double room had its own bathroom - even the dorms had private ensuites. The kitchen was never clean but that was due to other backpackers, NOT the lovely staff. A twenty dollar bond was affordable and it really was awesome to eat our FREE breakfast on the pool deck! Great stay.

Decently far walk from the city center - but nice pool and kitchen area.

Thanks for the review. It's about 15 to 20 minutes walk to the city centre. You can also catch a bus from directly out side and it's only a five minute ride to the city. We are actually really lucky to be located on the Beaufort St cafe strip. A favourite hang out for locals it has cafes, restaurant, fast food, bars and funky retail stores. Everything you need for a gret time in Perth less than 2 minutes walk away.
