    After spending a week job-hunting in Perth I moved to the OFS in Freo to find somewhere to settle and continue job hunting. I also wanted to find somewhere to meet new people and make plenty of other backpacker friends. OFS filled both of those criteria. It's amazing how many people come to OFS and stay for 6 months+. It means there's always a nice balance of new and old faces. The hostel is big enough to balance partying, relaxing and studying. I'd highly recommend staying here.

    I’ve stayed in a lot of hostels around the world and I have to say that this was my all time favourite! Great location, staff and vibe. I can’t wait to come back and stay again. I highly recommended it 👍🏼

    Fremantle is such a wonderful side of Perth. I had a gorgeous stay. The staff were friendly and created that kind of atmosphere that makes a hostel easy to meet people in. The communal feel of it was great. It was movie night when I arrived, so it was low key, but still social and welcoming. I made friends easily here. Highly recommended if you are a lone traveller looking for a nice place to feel at home while exploring.

    Awesome hostel! Such a great atmosphere...a brilliant back court yard area to chill out in. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Right in the middle of Freo and only a minute from the train which was great. Loved it! Will definitely go back.

    Stayed at OFS for 3 months and it was awesome! Big hostel, with friendly staff and social events on almost every night. It’s well maintained and cleaned daily. An added bonus was the girls only area, including a kitchen, tv area, showers and toilets. It’s in a great location (especially if you’re planning to go to Rottnest) and is one of the few hostels in freo with parking. Only downside is you have to pay cash. Overall great stay at OFS and can’t wait to come back!

    Great common room spaces with social atmosphere. However, you’re only allowed to drink the beer/wine sold by hostel. The bunk beds did not have ladders and long term residents hung up blankets to hide their beds making it VERY difficult to get to the top bunk. The hostel also has an inconvenient $60 deposit which gets you a bag of dishes that you are responsible for. The ones we received were dirty. And having such a policy did not even keep the kitchen cleaner. All it did was make me stressed.

    Full of people on long term stays who already know each other. All either work during the day or lounge around smoking in the courtyard all day. Difficult to interact if you're on a short stay and don't smoke. Seemed to have a good vibe at night.
