    The hostel has a great vibe and I especially loved the girls only area of the hostel, such a great feature. The staff were lovely and very helpful. Some things that need improved are: 1) they need air con, 2) there was a bit of an issue with cockroaches. However the staff are now aware of this and said it would be taken care of now that they have been made aware of it. Great location, would be happy enough to stay again.

    People are great, you can meet lots of people and reception sells alcohol and some snacks for good price which was good:) But the deposit is $60 and they only take cash, even though you get the deposit back when you check out, I consider this is too much. We stayed in 12 beds dorm, some people got a job in town so someone wakes up at 6, another one wakes up at 6:30, 7..... they get you up if you are too sensitive.. But it was good hostel overall.

    The first time I stayed in Fremantle old fire station, there was a break-in at night, and twelve people had some of their belongings stolen from them (including mine). No compensation from the staff was offered, and they acted like it's a normal thing. However, I still had a good time at the hostel and decided to book another night the next time I was in Fremantle. This time, for some reason, when I arrived at the hostel the staff couldn't find my booking, and sent me off to another hostel.

    It was unbearably hot in the rooms there’s no AC and no window to open, and there was supposed to be personal cutlery sets that wasn’t provided. The staff was friendly and the vibe outdoors was nice. But beware if you stay and can’t handle heat!

    Had high expectations because of the good reviews, but this turned out to be one of the worst hostels I ever stayed in. Incredibly messy, not clean, not secure and a total lack of ambiance. A few staff members were incredibly nice, others not so much. Ladies' showers were almost inpossible to both turn on and off. Stuff was stolen in the rooms. Almost didn't get my $60,- desposit back which wasn't my fault. Location is good though. Would def pick another hostel.
