Great place to be if you want to be next to the water but it's very far away from the city and the train stop is 15 minutes away to walk.


Overall it's good..except for some noise.

This Hostel is a GREAT location!!! If you are going to see Perth, Freemantle, Rottnest… this location provides access to a supermarket, transportation, beach and bars/restaurants. The staff were very friendly, and the place was kept up. The only issue was the noise… We stayed Fri/Sat nights and from checkin at 2pm fri to checkout at 9am Sun, it was a constant party with lots of drinking, singing, banging on doors, running up and down the halls all night. Resulted in two nights of poor sleep.


The people here make this place great. Thank you for taking care of me and the arrangement. I love the roommates here and I will definitely come back again.

Noisy at night, but a brilliant location and a lovely beach on your doorstep.

Due to stay one week but stayed on for two. Awesome hostel, most guests are living/working so real family atmosphere! Good rooms, comfy beds, hot showers, right on the beach. Bottle shop out back - perfect!


Although there are a lot of long timers here they are all great people and are willing to give you all the help you need. Lee in the cafe down stairs is a great guy and makes a mean burger and chips.no bottles only cans which means you can't have a decent beer but you can sit on the beech instead if you want.the weekends are like a blur when you go PARTY TIME! Wednesdays sizzler night is a great free food night too


Amazing hostel, I would definitely recommend and stay here again! Staff are lovely and helpful, they offer cheap discounted rates for longer stays and are right on the beach which is beautiful! It's very easy to meet people as everyone hangs around in the courtyard in the evening! Definitely stay here if you come to Perth!


Great location for the beach and easy to get to Perth via bus or train. Room was nice and big and cleaners in everyday. Just a shame the kitchen was so small, it was difficult to make food with so many people wanting to use it at same time. Also could get a bit noisy in the evenings, but otherwise good.
