No complains, no compliments! It was just an average hostel!


Whickham Retreat is an overall good hostel. People and staff are nice and respectful and one can definitely enjoy staying there. It's a bit expensive though, but still pays out if you're completely new to Perth, because you can benefit from free bread, milk, cereals, laundry, sandwich and barbecue day and so on. They have lockers too and you can take the free CAT bus line from there to travel around in Perth's CBD.


The Toilette I used had no paper in the morning. And there was no one at the reception when I had to leave at 7.30am. I fortunately found a person who took my key for the locker and handed the deposit to me.

Not the best hostel I've stayed in, but certainly not the worst. Friendly staff and lots of delicious free food. Many people I met staying there were people looking for jobs. Rooms are hot with no air-con, leaving them smelly when packed with people. Not bad overall, but it would be nice to have lockers.


Really great hostel, setup like an inner city home !!! Beats all other Australian hostels. Definitely worth a few extra dollars. Friendly and welcoming place, unlike the city of Perth itself !!
