The facilities were good. I was in a dorm of 6 which had its own ensuite bathroom plus there is another single bathroom just down the hall. Everyone gets a locker plus a shelf for food and there was a bar fridge in the room as well. A hanging rack with coat hangers and a small table with a mirror...

Very friendly, helpful staff. Located right across from the beach. Comfy bed. We had a double room with our own bathroom. The only complaint was noise. The drinking games continued outside our window (in the courtyard) until close to midnight. Would be a great place for those who like to party. Coffee shop next door has great coffee.

We stayed at this hostel for two weeks on arrival in Australia. It was simple to get to from Perth station, getting off at either Grant Street or Cottesloe it is about a fifteen minute walk to the hostel. Hostel itself had a great location, right on the beach, however there wasnt really much to do in the area. It...

No one can doubt the location of this hostel. The views you get from you room are beautiful. But I fear that this is the only redeeming quality of this hostel. I checked in with ease (beware there is a $20 deposit for your room key), but was offered no help, from the man who checked me and was showing...

There's no doubt this hostel is in a great location, so near Cottesloe beach and tied in with a bar and bottelo next door. Staff were very helpful and my room was clean enough. It's a little old with creeky wooden floors and no elevator to the upper level. But has everything you need with a kitchen and a lounge...

The location of this property is brilliant, right on the beach. But that's as good as it gets. The staff are the most unwelcoming unfriendly hostel workers ive ever come across and anytime you ask them a question its like your asking for the world, no customer service skills whatsoever! The rooms are filthy, cockroaches running riff, huge gaps under...

I stayed at this hostel in September 2013. I shared a double room which was large and the beds were comfortable. It had its own en suite bathroom. This was very dirty and there were dead insects underneath the sink in the cabinet. The kitchen was dirty. The staff were friendly and helpful. The upside is that it is right...
