The bed was very hard and my feet and head touched both ends. The lack of cleanliness in the showers and toilets needs to be addressed. The breakfast was a welcome addition.

Staff very friendly and helpful. It's about a 15 min walk to the cbd which makes things very accessible.Rooms were clean and ample space. Some rooms though could do with coat hangers/hooks. Kitchen very clean and free breakfast was a definite plus. Showers and toilets kept clean with hot water 24/7. Free wifi also brilliant and really fast too. If back in Perth I would definitely stay here again.

A great hostel within easy reach of Perth CBD. The place is completely immaculate and the kitchen has everything you could possibly want, the free breakfast is great too! The staff are lovely and very helpful. Lots of people stay long term, so it's not necessarily the most social place but if you want somewhere to stay while you're working, it's perfect!


Security: Front door was open when I arrived at 7 am. It was supposed to be closed. But they have cameras everywhere. Some girls stole washing powder and where confronted immidiately. So don't steel anything! ;) Location: about 15 min into the city centre Staff: Whatever the pay Saaya, the y should pay her more. Thanks again. You were really friendly and helpful! Cleanlin.: As everywhere where backpackers clean. They do their job but don't care that much. Heaps of dust behind tellie.


Close to train station, 20-25 minute walk from where bus drops you off from airport. Vincent-staff, was professional, helpful, competent. Showers are spacious enough, good water pressure, never runs out of hot water. Breakfast is a couple different cereals, bread, butter, jam. The main social areas of Perth are about a 10 minute walk away, it's close to Woolworth's grocer too. Kitchen is big, lots of pots and pans, large fridges. Plenty of bathrooms and showers so you don't have to wait.


Nice place to stay. The room is quite comfortable, bathroom is clean and the kitchen is excellent. The location is a lil bit far but there's blue CAT stop nearby. I would be better if the floor in bedroom using carpet because the floor is so cold.


We have stayed here a couple times, and it just keeps getting better every time we go. They have added electronic keys to each room which helped their already high security rating, and they have free wifi that works well (which is hard to find in Australia). There's a good mix of backpackers who are staying long term for work and those who are staying only a few days. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are planning on doing either one.


This hostel is a very good and new hostel. Everything is clean and tidy and it seems to be very quiet. The only thing which was not that good was the location. It is not directly in the city center so that you need to walk a little bit. But the hostel is still very close so that this is just a small minus. I am completly satisfied.


SO CLEAN!!!! Excellent WiFi!!! Best hostel I've stayed in and highly recommend. Many ppl staying there are working so great community atmosphere. I also heard from them that its probably the best hostel in perth. They could probably use more showers but I never had to wait. Also lockers in your room. Couple blocks from bus drop off but the directions are good. Airport info center can give you a map as well


Amazing friendly and helpful staff. Great atmosphere and people staying here long term. Clean with good facilities and in a great location.


Room was okay, clean and comfortable bed, no window. But the hostel looks a bit boring, the opposite of lovely decorations and everywhere signs that tell you what you should and shouldn't do. The breakfast was boring, they could add at least jam as well, peanut butter and marmelade are English things and not liked by everyone. For a night okay.
