I'm stay was only a short one but as I'm I my 50s and was working I only got a bit of sleep that s my porblum if I was not work great


Doors always opened so the keycards are totally useless and everybody can come to steal your stuff. People don t wash their dishes, showers prtty dirty (hair everywhere on the floor). Very noisy place music all night long heard into the bedrooms. People were like animals, farting competition in the bedrooms, never say hello, stay together, not convivial at all. Very young and immature. Don t go to that place, i had to left it after 3 nights and i ve booked for 5....


Checked in for one night but ended up staying for almost 2 weeks! North bridge is a really cool area! Easy to meet people here, it's pretty wild some nights! The clubs on the same street are pretty good. Everyone that works here are awsome! I would recommend it! just bring your own knife and forks can never find any haha.. But all in all it's a pretty cool place with cool people.


This inexpensive hostel is a good choice if you want to discover Northbridge and don't want to spend much time in the hoste itselfl. The rooms, the kitchen, the bathrooms & the living/TV room are ok but dark and not really cozy. It can get pretty loud during the night.


So good I decided to stay here rather than look for a house to rent... Friendly staff, relaxed and secure atmosphere...I feel very comfortable here. Friday nights are amazing! The owner goes out of his way to provide a great night out right here in the hostel... DJs, lighting and a real party atmosphere... I'd recommend this hostel to anyone...

I've stayed at half the hostels in Perth, and this is the nicest one definitely. The staff were super friendly and the rooms very clean and comfy, which is more than I can say for any of the other hostels in the area. I would stay here again for sure.


best hostel I have been to! nice vibes and pretty cool to just hang around in the lounge entertainment area.

Great hostel which looked like it just finished some renovations, very good location right in the heart of Northbridge. Staff were very friendly and accommodating and let me have an early check in after a long flight. Walking distance to shops and nightlife and very close to public transport! Only stayed one night as I was in transit but will definitely be coming back later in the year!


i love Bambu - Asian Cat boy -

Thank you Nor, we all miss the Asian Cat boy a lot, hope to see you one day again! Have fun in Melbourne!


Just horrible! Bedroom without windows, facilities dirty and too much nose during night.
