I called Townsend Lodge home for 3 months. For a young traveler working short term in Australia, this place was perfect. Is there air conditioning? No. Is the kitchen high tech and homey? No. Are the bathrooms top notch? Of course not. But the people are great. Staying there for so long, I met so many wonderful people--those that worked...

I was at the Townsend Lodge for over a month. I stayed there because the accommodation was arranged by my volunteer organization, Travellers Worldwide. I paid them and they used the money for this hostel. First, the good news. The hostel was in a great location close to the Central Business District. Second, the people in the reception area are...

Hi Sharon, Townsend Lodge is now under new management and we are addressing these problems within the lodge. We have employed a new cleaner and I can say the lodge is now sparkling. I apologise for your concerns but please let me assure you they are being addressed.

I enjoyed staying at Townsend Lodge, there were a mixture of ages and the staff were very friendly. It was convenient for catching the Red Cat to the city bus port, which runs every 8 mins. The cleaning of the kitchen and dining area during the week left much to be desired, at the W/E a guy who lived there...

Since 2011 I have come back to Townsend Lodge time and again. The mix of backpackers and long stay guests is great. The management is very capable. The lovely housekeeper Mrs. M. is missed!!! So cleanliness is not quite as it used to be (bring your own tea towel and sponge, your own cup and cutlery if possible). The location...

The lodge is in the heart of the city and all the attractions in the city is within walking distance. Nice and clean with a fantastic staff. Good price. Ideal for both short and long stay because all the facilities are there (cooking facilities, refrigerator nicely numbered and allocated space for each room, dining area, TV lounge, laundry, ironing area...

Townsend lodge has a great location considering the airport bus. It is also within the walking distance to the Center of the city. The lodge itself is robust and not the cleanest. It is well suited for people making their own food and laudring.

If one has to stay in CBD in Perth on a budget accommodation one has either to choose Adelaide Terrace or George Terrace. The hotel is very conveniently located and has all the amenities nearby with Swan river being just a 7 minutes walk way and Elizabeth Quay about 15 minutes. The bus stop is just across and opposite the...

I stay at the lodge on a regular basis. You pay for what you get. People are great and the staff are fantastic. Rooms are depressing and there are no TV's in the rooms which sucks if you've just come off night shift and you just want to watch a bit of TV and fall asleep, you got to go...
