Loved this hostel, so cool how you’re actually in the old prison grounds. Was very social, found it so easy to chat to people, I met people at the volleyball tournament. Beds very comfy and even in a ten bed dorm it didn’t feel like that many people. Great kitchen facilities and was practically always clean. Fremantle also a beautiful area, glad I did a few days here to make a change from being in the CBD. Would definitely go back!

Unique hostel and loved my stay here. Water fountain next to reception is amazing! Social atmosphere can be quiet but Valtteri is doing amazing job to make events happen in the hostel. Big locker and inside locker is your own charging cable > you can charge your stuff without worry. Kitchen is big and clean, but all pots & pans are in horrible conditions. Bed is super wobbly so you will feel every turn. In dorms cleaning isn't as good as other part of hostel. Especially under beds were dirty.
