This was the best hostel we stayed in while we were in Australia (and we stayed in a fair few!). When we arrived everyone was super friendly and the atmosphere in general was really good. The private room we had was spacious, clean and the air conditioning unit kept us cool at night. The kitchen and bathrooms were really clean too. In terms of location it couldn't be much better, a short walk to the beach and a bus from the end of the road goes right into the city.

The place was just what I needed for a short stay near the beach, my family and friends.The international guests, who were much younger than me were a delight to be around at the lodge and I have collected some contact details for them in France, Germany and other places overseas. Just the sort of place where I can stay when necessary to go from my home to Perth which is 150 km away.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. Good to hear you enjoyed yourself and you're welcome back any time!!


Nice place right by the beach! Getting to anywhere else in perth can be a bit of work just due to the location, you have to bus back to the CBD before you can connect to wherever you are off to.Friendly staff and long term guests are welcoming as well.

Good location once you know what to expect-no town centre nearby but shops

Thanks for your review - we are close to the beach with bars and restaurants. Also, there is public transport 2 mins walk away, which takes you to the city in 20 mins. Hopefully you enjoyed your stay with us.

Thanks for your positive review - we do try!!


Good hostel overall. But when we got there we did not get the room we had booked with ensuite bathroom and we really did'nt get any reason why. Quite strange manager at this hostel.

Thanks for the review - apologies we could not give you the room you booked, there was a mix-up on the internet booking site. We did try to compensate by giving you a double room and free wifi. Hopefully you enjoyed the rest of your holiday.


The hostel is nothing but a party house for long term renters. The girls dorm bathroom is overrun with cosmetics and products all over. No one ever locks the door of room. Patios are right outside from dorm rooms, so hear absolutely everything that goes on. A lot of fun and laughs if you are looking for a party hostel. If you need a rest, definitely look elsewhere you won't get it here. No staff after 9pm so it's like these long timers own the place! 5- 10 minute walk to beach!
