The Old Fire Station it's the best and most iconic hostel in Fremantle. Come home to our funky, converted Firestation and become one of the many who just can't leave! With staff committed to providing helpful travel advice, job assistance and the latest info on events and attractions in and around Fremantle, it's no wonder this place sticks on people. Facilities include laundry, outdoor cinema (complete with Foxtel), Netflix, job board, job finding service, your own dish set and locker, and a 24-hour common area with a fully equipped kitchen, free internet access, free WiFi free play station 4, free pool table, free coffee & tea and free movies! But don't get caught inside and miss our awesome outdoor courtyard complete with over 20,000 songs on our self serve jukebox, a free BBQ, fussball table, ping pong and our famous monthly theme parties. Our female guests can even enjoy an exclusive common area, kitchen and shower facilities just for the ladies! If our endless amenities don't take up all your time, Fremantle city will! Whether you are after museums, beaches, markets, shopping or just a great coffee on a sunny afternoon, The Old Firestation is right around the corner. We are also only a three minute walk from the transit centre, making getting here or day tripping to Perth easy...

Possibly the best hostel I've stayed in. Clean, interesting building, great staff, friendly people, good stuff going on. I need more characters so this is filler text. Apparently that wasn't enough so I'll write some more.

Keep coming back to this gem. Year after year the level is always outstanding. Guys at reception are just insane. If you are looking for a job just ask them and they will find you one in no time. Pure love.
