One of the best hostels I've stayed in. The mattress was about 4 inches thick, and the pillowcase and sheets had a high thread count (basically means high quality). The kitchen had cupboards labelled for each bed of each room, and there were always free stuff left by other people at the table at the hallway to the rooms. Great location too a block away from the Museum and two blocks away from CBD. Not a backpacker place though so hard to meet people. More like hotel without the hefty price tag!


Appalling service. Arrived from Melbourne to check in for my booking to find the front door locked, nobody inside, no answer to the intercom AND when I called their contact number they also didn't answer the phone. Luckily Brittannia on William were friendly and accommodating so I managed to get a bed for the night there instead. DO NOT BOOK AT EMPEROR'S CROWN IF YOU ACTUALLY PLAN TO CHECK IN!


Never been to a better Hostel. No loud noises after 10pm. Rooms were clean.

Felt more like a Hotel than a Hostel. Hard to meet People. Don't understand why you have to rent Cutleryset for 20 Dollars! Otherwise nice and big bedrooms.


Rooms have lockers and ate cleaned daily, kitchen is cleaned daily n is only messy when other backpackers don't clean up after themselves. Close to airport shuttle bus drop off point (5min walk). Close to train station n shops (3min). Woolworths is close to the hostel. Staff are friendly. The only thing that wasn't consistent was the price per night which fluctuated. I would stay here again.


Very clean & good quality, friendly & helpful staff! The only thing that was a little on the downside was that you could only get internet for free for 30 min per day.


Clean, tidy, newly furbished with a funky bright feel. What I would expect from a city backpackers. Very comfortable bed and quiet. Smelled great!


Clean hostel, good facilities. Our 4 bed dorm had an ensuite bathroom. Close to the railway station.


Really good hostel!


Good location, quiet during the day but fun at night.


Just average! Not enough facility.


Staff were rarely around at reception. There were cockroaches in the rooms and showers. When I complained, I was told "that's Australia" yet didn't have them in other hostels. The rooms are dirty in general. I stayed in a four bed girls room and the carpet between the bed & wall had all kinds of garbage on it like q-tips, hangers, wrappers, etc... Kitchen hours are not good. Wifi is limited. People from other hostels were often hanging out in public areas and in the rooms.


Great location, quite area and not far from all the happening in Northbridge!! The hostel is clean, has a big kitchen facility, a small outside area and a small common room area! You'll get free wifi for 30min when you check in and from then on it will cost you! There is parking for first come, first serve at the back! I hope the replace the locks by now, as with my key i sometimes didn't manage to enter through the jammed lock...
