Hostel has character . But freezing cold/no heating. fridge outside.Everyone in kitchen to warm up. Couldn´t cook. In morning condensation dripiing from ceilings onto beds and in kitchen. Groups of people not very sociable. Kept forcing me out of rooms - turning tv on very loud. Woke up in night - cat on bed- began to eat my food. Allowed me to check out after one night.- Some good outsde areas to sit but too cold to go out.

The Pirates Backpackers Fremantle

Fremantle, Australia

Good place/great location - but got bed bugs first night.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Bed Bugs are unfortunately an area of concern for all accommodation venues, from backpacker hostels to large corporate hotels. At Pirates every single room is thoroughly checked weekly for the presence of bed bugs. In addition, all couches are checked weekly for the presence of any possible pests. The cleaning standards are maintained at a high level. As a result we rarely have an issue with bugs. However, it is also very difficult to control what 'pests' are transferred into the hostel in guest's baggage. In the situation above we immediately checked the room in question to locate and exterminate the bug/s.

V Good hostel - clean - like hotel - rooms a bit congested and receptionist aggressive when trying to get picked by from Greyhound. Cinema room a good feature.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Unsure why this guest thought we were aggressive, as Next Backpackers meets all Greyhound and Premier Coaches that arrive in Hervey Bay between the hours of 5:45 am and 9:00pm daily, if the greyhound is late, we will get the guests on the next trip, unfortunately we do not have the man power to pick up on an individual call, but we will get there, Next Backpackers it is about a 1 hour walk, or a $15 dollar taxi fare, from the coach terminal.
