Really nice chilled hostel. The staff are great and it's really clean. Great if you want somewhere you can actually sleep! Kitchen is pretty big with lots of fridge space. Just outside the city so a bit quieter but only a short walk to the free bus to the city.


Excellent! Anthea is amazing.


Lovely staff, great atmosphere and so much fun! A little ways from transport but can definitely enjoy the walk and the mates you meet in the hostel!


Overall not bad. People were lovely, fairly quiet hostel but easy to mingle and interact with guests. A little bit of a walk into the city (15/20mins) but there are free bus stops very close by.


Great place for longterm stays with lovely people (great staff and mature guests).close enough to bars of northbridge but located in quiet residential area.furniture a bit outdated but matrasses good, facilities good and very clean.liked it :-)


Looks can be deceiving - looks great from the outside, inside is fairly average. The location is a fair walk from the city centre. The atmosphere is okay, no party hostel which is great, and all age groups are here. You have to pay a deposit for crockery, there is absolutely nothing in the kitchen...


The public facilities wgere very good but the bedrooms a bit hot and stuffy.

The staff will go out of their way to make you stay more pleasant, while providing some entertainment like celebrating at Patrick's day. The guests are easy going and the atmosphere is great! I would recommend to anyone thinking of staying here.

good location, nice rooms. free internet


The Witch Hat is a nice lovely hostel with very friendly staff. The atmosphere with the courtyard and relaxing tv room was great. Just a few minutes walk you'll find some nice places for a drink and to eat. Breakfast is included, but it's rather small and only some Little thing to Start off with.

Very clean well run hostel in nice area. It is a little bit out of the center, about a 15 min walk into CBD


Even though the reception was not open 24 hours we got things sorted out for our early arrival. One of the staff set the alarm for an earlier time to be able to give us the deposit back, true customer service! The kitchen and other facilities were good. Internet connection was slow and it did not help to move to common areas. We were almost not able to use it, so this must be fixed. It was quite noisy during evenings, but it ended when the outdoor area closed at 10 PM.


Cute hostel, within walking distance of Perth's cbd. It is situat s in a quieter part of town, which is convenient at night as it is not very loud. Rooms were average and not all of them have aircon. Wifi is free though.
