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.


Great hostel! There are a lot of longtermers that work in Perth staying here who are welcoming and like a cheeky drink once in a while! Clean, nice tv in the common room, everyone makes dinner almost every night and they have a great system of storing your food in separate cold bags so that there's no question what belongs to who. Great location, right up the street from St James street where there are a lot of cool bars and places to eat. Highly recommend it, BUT THEY DONT DO CANCELLATIONS!


The location was good, the kitchen was big and lots of people were usually using it. The free breakfast is just toast and cereal. Beds were creaky and not too comfortable.


Staff was nice but not super knowledgable about the area. The room was not cleaned in the 4 days of my stay nor was trash emptied. There were hairballs and dirt in the room from the first day I arrived. The restroom facilities had been updated but they were not cleaned either. Shower shoes required.


Had a great stay at this hostel. Staff are backpackers too so theyre really cool. Facilties were brand new and cleaned so well. Showers were fab. Tv area is v comfy and they have huge range of movies. Only thing I didnt like was that there were no computers to use. Backpackers need to research so I think its important to have internet access, they did av free fast wifi but I still think a computer would have been better. Overall one of the best hotels ive stayed in.
