Property Description

Welcome and Thanks For Checking Out Kangaroo Inn – Perth’s Best and Most Awarded Premium Backpackers.

We are the only Backpackers to have won multiple awards in the WA Tourism Awards with Silver in 2016, Gold in 2015 and Silver in 2014!

We are definitely not a party hostel but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun during your stay here. We are close by to all of Perth’s major attractions such as the Swan River, Perth Mint, Kings Park, Art Gallery, Perth Arena, WACA and the Murray St and Hay St Malls. Public transport is also nearby whether Ferry, Bus or Train. Plus, although we are only a 10 minutes walk from the Northbridge entertainment precinct we are far enough from the noise if you want to get a good nights sleep.

Which brings us to the rooms, regardless if you choose our comfortable private rooms or budget dorm rooms you will get a good nights sleep with our 4 star hotel grade mattresses and soft cotton sheets. Private rooms (except for twin bunk rooms) get the added bonus of TVs and in room safes.

All rooms are well-appointed and include reverse-cycle air conditioning with in-room controls and ample power points to charge your devices. Linen and towels are also provided.

Guests share bathroom facilities; there are dedicated mens' and ladies’ bathrooms on each floor, fitted out with luxury fixtures.

Kangaroo Inn has multiple common facilities including a massive basement common room, commercial kitchen, outdoor deck, a reading room, lobby/computer areas and guest laundry. Of course WiFi is available throughout the premises.

Limited off street parking is also available subject to availability and fees.

For late night arrivals, please advise in advance so we can provide you with a security number to access the Self-check in box.

CCTV Security cameras are situated throughout the premises and all guests are provided with their own electronic RFID key cards.

Due to lift renovation works between Thursday 11th January and Monday 12th March 2018, the lift will be out of order.
Furthermore construction noise on the premises will be unavoidable between the hours of 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday and we will not have lift or disabled access at the property during this time.
We have special offers in place for booking stays during this time. The 4-bed dorm rooms (mixed and ladies only) are the rooms most affected by the noise and thus have the best discounts.
We apologise in advance for the inconvenience. View House Rules

    Travelled to Perth from QLD was only meant to stay four night and ended up staying 10. Location is within 2 minute walk of Woolies, BWS, train station, fast food etc. You are basically right in the mall. Rooms great (private room), bathrooms are beautiful and so clean. I worked from the hostel and I’m glad I brought my own internet. The kitchen is huge but gets really messy but I think thats more the guests then the staff. Will stay again.

    Overall good place to stay, right in the city centre. I arrived at 3 in the morning and ended up getting an upgrade which was very nice after a long day. (Dorm)rooms as well as the bathrooms are nice and clean. Awesome mattresses and there’s aircon in a lot of the rooms ! Common area is pretty neat with a big tv, pool table and comfy couches. Kitchen is the only problem I had with this place... very old and dirty. Otherwise great value for money!

    Two person room, nice and spacious. Didn't really use any of the facilities like the kitchen etc. Noisy corridor though as the doors slam a lot at all sorts of hours as there were a lot of people staying there for work. Good location for CBD, Elizabeth Quay, bars/clubs. Easy to get to from the airport.

    It was a good hostel however it’s filed with people staying for months on end for working holidays and not people who are there for a few days on holiday. The atmosphere on New Years was good. People were really nice. The kitchen was absolutely minging though and the rooms were not cleaned properly only a quick hoover on the floor. Good location in the centre of Perth if that’s where you want to be however the centre isn’t the most interesting. Overall good stay

    Disappointed regarding the awesome 8.9 they got when I booked. This hostel is cold as ice ; lights, decoration, atmosphere ... The showers are not that clean, and I saw a roach in the kitchen ... They didn't even give dishwashing liquid, it's just handwash ! Impossible to clean the dishes properly. The beds are comfy though. The overall cleaning is okay.

    I was deeply surprised when I got to this hostel because of its high rating. I would very strongly advise anyone against going to it. The main issue is the kitchen, which was disgusting. Most of the time the sinks are filled with unwashed dishes and dirty water. The sponges are disgusting, as are the soap dispensers. The cutlery often wasn't clean. One time I saw three cockroaches crawling on one of the microwaves as it was heating up food!

    Rooms were very tight and not that clean . TV remote didn’t work. Kitchen smells and no one cleans up after themselves. Dirty plates and doorpost and pans all over the sink and kitchen. In the morning, there are dirty plates, plates full of half food, beer bottles and trash all over the TV room and dining area. Pigeons come in kitchen eating off floors. Very unsanitary. I would not recommend them. The staff does not enforce any rules. .

    Upon arriving there were poo stains all over the toilet seat and the bathroom light was flickering, notified the staff but took hours to be cleaned 🙂 The receptionist working nights was basically drunk most of the time and wasn’t very helpful - Checked out early
