The room I stayed in was adequate and basic but could've done with the simple addition of a mirror...not a great expense. Also staying on the ground floor was incredibly noisy as all the floors are wooden and you can hear every step anyone takes. Another gripe would be that two showers for that many rooms is simply not enough.... More

We spent a few nights here in a three bed rooms when we arrived in Perth. The people were friendly and helpful. There is a well equipped and nice kitchen as well as a patio. The room was OK but could be cleaner.

The backpackers location is good. Very close from the main activities. 10-15 min walking max. The price is $30 pppn in a 8 dorm, which is correct compared to the other backpackers around. The kitchen and communal areas are quite clean. Everything is cleaned every morning. The bad point was the only cold water in the men bathroom. The beds... More

The positive is the house itself is quite nice, the rooms are fine and the owner very friendly and welcoming. So far so good- the major problem are the long term resident guests, they have the run of the place. Our room was close to the kitchen common area and we had the delight of listening to them partying until... More

I have some mixed thoughts on this property. I did enjoy the time I spent there and met some really nice people. The bedrooms were very basic but clean. The bathrooms were too small with only 4 showers for the entire hostel which I think could be 50/60 beds. The bathrooms need updated. The shower rooms don't have screens so... More

The title of this says it all. This place is definitely not worth the money we paid to stay. Rooms are tired and need updating as do the bathrooms. We have stayed in places on our trip around oz where for this money you could expect your own room, TV, fridge and air con. No such luck here, a shame... More

Staying was OK. I was only there one night. There was nothing good but nothing bad about the room in general. It is a smallish backpackers. The people who were there longer term did not have good things to say. They complained about the stingy owners. I had a bad experience in that I asked for them to confirm my... More
