For an experianced hosteller this property is more of a hostel/guesthouse/homestay mix. It would be a great place for a person to start to hostel however to someone who has stayed at many hostels the property lacked something. The place had no life/pulse. The bathroom is accessed through a bedroom and there are no locks on any internal doors, the bathroom would be a high recomendation for improvement. However this property is in such a great location in Newport.

. This guest apparently did not appreciate the comfortable, homey feeling of a small hostel such as ours. Newport does not have a larger hostel because licensing laws don’t allow it. . She wrote there were no locks on any internal doors, yet the room she was in for four nights had a lock on the door, as do the bathrooms. The hostel currently has three bathrooms - one off a bedroom, one off the common room, and another new one just opened up for the season.


The hostel is in a very good location. Easy to get to Perth Centre and Northbridge. Its on a quiet street and is a beautiful building. There is not a 24hr reception or supervisor present all of the time to keep and eye on the place. The hostel could do with some maintenance including painting and replacing missing floor tiles. My room did not appear to be thoroughly cleaned with the change over of guests and there was not a change of linen.
