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.
Good location, quiet during the day but fun at night.
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...
They put single duvets on double beds and turn them sideways so they only come just over halfway up the bed. I turn it myself and I am only okay because I am on my own and don't need to share it with anyone else. Unfortunately, also the shower head in the ensuite was dripping constantly and I couldn't shut the sliding door as it didn't fit in the slider. It really needs to be fixed. The bedrooms feel run down. I have been there a few times now and will try somewhere else next time.
