    Had a great week staying at Pirates. Great location in Fremantle. Easy to get ferry across to Rottnest, and a short walk or free bus to South Beach as well. Place was kept clean and tidy and was a good fun atmosphere, I’m sure I’ll be back!

    Excellent stay at Pirates! The location can't be beat - right by the famous Esplanade Hotel. A short walk to all the bars, restaurants, market, waterfront, everything! Comfy bed, I particularly liked the memory foam pillow. The owner is super friendly, and staff are always making sure you have everything you might need. I'll be back for sure! Stayed in a female dorm - good sized lockers and they provide padlocks. Plenty of clean showers and bathrooms. Kitchen is a good size.

    Stayed at this hostel multiple times and I did so for a reason. Great little hostel in an a prime location. As it is a smaller hostel there is a great atmosphere. There is always plenty to do in the hostel itself, and walkable to good nightlife and pubs as well. One thing that surprised me is that it is still quiet at night! Will stay here again.

    Had an awesome time staying at Pirates - great atmosphere, super friendly and helpful staff, killer location - just a few minutes walk to the beach and lots of places to eat / drink and a supermarket etc. Met lots of friendly people! Vaughn organised a stand up paddle boarding morning on the river as well which was a highlight, would definitely recommend and looking forward to coming back :)
