The Old Swan Barracks

Perth, Australia

Most importantly: check-in is not before 1 PM. Very frustrating to sit waiting! Otherwise, hostel is an old converted barracks, and it shows. Long fairly sterile corridors, rooms quite cramped, ablutions generally pretty good but shower water pressure can be a bit poor. Main social area is the old drill hall, perhaps too large for the number of people staying when I was there. Has an on-site bar, clearly a party hostel. Kitchen much too small for the size. Overall? Good, but not great.

Hi Alex, Thank you for coming to stay at the Barracks. Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we appreciate your feedback. We would love to be able to check guests in anytime during the morning, but when the hostel is operating at its full capacity and check out is at 10am our cleaners do their best to get the rooms ready by 1 pm. We hope you enjoy the rest of your travels. Kind Regards, The Old Swan Barracks Team
