By far the best hostel iv stayed in Australia and I've been traveling nearly 2 years, might be a tad more expensive than some others but it certainly makes up for it by pizza night, BBQ night, sandwich an pastry night as well as FREE wifi. Free shelfs . . . Bread, milk, jam, butter ect an when your skint it really helps a lot ! An free laundry :) the staff are great also an like to involve everyone, definitely a great hostel to meet new folk an generally hangout play pool an drink! PATRICK !!!!

It is important to find a friendly, small and clean facility. It proved to have this! I stayed at WIckham for one night before I embarked on a 12 night tour to Broome. Wickham proved to be an awesome place to stay. All the free food I could ask for, friendly and amazing staff, lovely owner Charlie, and Chris the manager was grand. Close to the FREE bus stop and within 10mins walking to the city, this is easily the best place to stay. Clean, and VERY secure. Don't look anywhere else.

It's a good hostel to stay, but is a bit distant from the city centre. good: WIFI, staff, mattress, food (just on sunday, monday and friday) bad: location

One of the best hostels I have stayed at anywhere in the world. Friendly staff, great value for money when you consider all thr extras. Location is good, 15 min walk to centre or better catch the free CAT as to hit to walk anyway ! Great place to meet other travellers to

The atmosphere is the best part of the this place. Very chill yard to hangout it as well a two kitchens and a lounge area with a pool table. It's more of a home in a residential area so it is a bit of a walk to the city but really not that bad. The staff are friendly and place is overall very clean. I would definitely stay here again.

Great place for meeting people, a small hostel where everyone gets to know each other since everyone eats together as they provide allot of free dinners. Great experience!

Staff friendly and welcoming, the free food provided was an unexpected bonus - pizza night very good. also free internet. The 4 bed dorm I was in was a bit cramped though. Location good for WACA but some may prefer something a bit more central as in quiet area. Claisebrook Cove is a short walk away and makes for a nice night out. Most people staying other than those who were there for the cricket seemed to have jobs, i.e. staying for a few weeks rather than a few days.

I tend to not write reviews but places such as Wickham deserve to be highlighted as an outstanding hostel who will go above and beyond to help you out. It's clean, well located and the free food is in abudance and delicious. Yet without those factors, it would still be a great place because Charlie the owner and the girls are the friendliest people you will come across. Yes it's expensive but were else do you get bed,breakfast,dinner most nights, and laundry under 50 dollars a day. Just book it!

Great hostel. Lots of good free food and the internet is free and fast. It's a small hostel and has the nice sense of community lacking in larger places.

Really nice hostel, has a great homey feel. Rooms are clean and comfortable and there's a lot of good common space; a garden area with tables and shade, a TV room, nice kitchen and living room with pool table and beer fridges. Free breakfast, dinners most nights and laundry make this a great place to save a bit of money. Short walk to the free bus stop and a few shops.

It's an aright place to stay! Not the cleanest of places but the freebies all make up for that. It's not a party hostel so you can get a decent night's sleep, but that doesn't mean it's boring- everyone was friendly and up for a day out.
