A very clean hostel with helpful staff. The only downside was the additional cost to use the wifi.
Overall a good hostel. 10 minute walk to the city. Clean rooms, bathrooms average. Big kitchen, TV with foxtel. WIFI REALLY EXPENSIVE!!
Really great kitchen space! It was fun to cook there with everyone else. Rooms were fine, bathrooms were fine. A little walk to Williams St and the bus stations. Found a grab coffee shop called Little Wily's on Williams St too. Staff were really helpful and friendly. No free wifi and no breakfast included which wasn't ideal. But still an easy, friendly space with a nice homely feel.
Can't really fault this hostel. Spinner was really helpful, everything was nice and clean, good location etc. Bit of a quieter hostel as there were a few long termers, but I appreciated the peace and quiet after a crazy couple of weeks in Sydney getting woken up every night by drunk people! (not that I was totally innocent). Definitely recommend.

I have been travelling for a year and this was one of my favourite hostels in Australia. Small hostel but a good sized 6 share dorm with big lockers you could put your entire backpack in. Nice toilets and showers. Most people staying in the hostel were friendly and it had a good atmosphere. Staff presence on reception was not the most visible but someone is always covering 24 hours a day. You may just have to find them :-). The guy I found on my last morning was really helpful :-).
This hostel has everything you need as a backpacker: huge lock boxes in the rooms for all of your things, very clean facilities, warm showers, huge kitchen. There were many people living long term in the hostel which didn't make it a very warm, fun, welcoming atmosphere. Also, most of the long term-ers work at the hostel which makes it hard to know who's on duty.... the desk isn't often staffed.
Over all, I enjoyed my stay at Spinner's. As it is only 5 minutes away from central northbridge it's not far to all the party locations, but you have a clean and quiet place to sleep at the same time. When we checked in, the staff was rather grumpy, but Spinner himself was a really friendly guy. The bathrooms and rooms were really clean, which was nice. Internet is not included and quite expensive to buy.
I've to say this is one of the cleanest hostels I've stayed in. The atmosphere is really good, people are friendly and always make you feel welcomed. I can only find one negative thing to say about this hostel and it's was one of the staff, who seemed to be very moody and un-inviting from the moment walked into the hostel to check-in it appear as if I'd done something to him. However all the other staff were very happy to help even stop to have a chat.
Staff was really welcoming, Spinner himself is trully a nice guy. Not to far from the town center, so you can go there on foot. The place is cool and friendly, share parts are really clean, the kitchen in particular was great, clean and well equiped. Huge TV and confy sofas. The best backpacker I have been at in Perth.
