Friendly staff, great location around the corner from the city and train station. Perfect for a few nights to discover Perth. Guest can be loud there.

Do not stay here! It is not a place for backpackers and especially not if you are alone. It was a almost like a halfway house and I did not feel at all safe. Some woman went through my things and when I told the staff,they showed no concern for our safety! I repeat do not stay here!

Excellent: THE LOCATION! 100 Points! And the winner of the category "dirties hostel I´ve visited yet" is: Globe Packpackers! Our roommates were friendly. But we only spent as less as necessary time in this hostel because it smelled of weed in the corridors and the showers and toilets were very filthy. The common area was nothing you would like to spent more time in.

A rough hostel, but with good atmosphere. Facilities quite poor (in the kitchen no kettle, rooms had broken ac:s) but had a good stay anyway. A great place to stay for a short visit, excellent location in Perth! Friendly staff.

It was terrible. The cleanliness was very bad and it was very loud every evening till late. From the courtyard the smoke came in our room which did it not better. The room was totally too small and the cleanliness was not good there too. Luckily the roomates were good so they did my stay a bit more comftable. But only this was good. Even the kitchen was horrible.. I cannot reccommend this hostel.

Had trouble understanding the desk attendant. Sheets were very worn to the point that they were about to have holes in them. The location was perfect for my purposes though.

Avoid this place if you can. I've stayed only one night and change hostel to another one. There was too much drunken people and place was dirty.

Well, in my long experience as backpacker never before had lost a booking except ath this Globe. My flight was delayed at Los Angeles, California and mailed to Globe's crew to hold my booking and they answer yes. What a surprise that arrived there tired of flying and they trashed away my booking. Crew did never comunicate between them and I was sent out on a full Perth city to walk and look for a hostel at 2 am. Of course, next morning they we're very sorry for their stupidity. I would never reccomend

Not a bad place to stay. My room was a little cramped - not much room to put anything. Showers aren't amazing. Good, spacious kitchen though.

A quiet, clean and secure hostel to stay in, in the city centre. The dorms were clean and the bed was very comfortable - and they had lockers in the room too.

no water in pool, photo on website shows lovely blue water, really grotty, said they told us to bring our sheets down to front desk but hadn't done. Some staff sourfaced, rooms tiny. All in all never again

the dorms next to the kitchen were unbearably hot the broken fan made it very stifling i didnt sleep for more than 4 hours each night as it was too hot and noisy by being right by the communal area. dingy and not much character and the reception was always closed even though it says open 24 hours. worst of quite a few hostels ive stayed in.

It\'s a great location for the picking up tours and the rail / bus. Good internet. Only stayed 1 night and didn\'t catch any bedbugs - mgr said it\'s mainly in the dorms, they fumigate regularly but can\'t do the same to would be guests !

Generally a very unclean hostel with a bad vibe, the unhelpful and unenthusiastic staff do not help things. Generally a bad stay.

good enough hostel. get what you expect for the price. clean bathrooms and showers. great free breakfast if you can be arsed getting up in time for it. the bunks had no ladders so if youre stuck on a top bunk (which is a 50%chance, probably more saying all the longstay people have the bottom ones)you need to have gods/hercules upper body strength to climb and good knees to jump down. filled with irish so if youre sick of them,like me, tough luck. high banter if youre sociable. over and out.
