Service: -/+ Price: - Location: -/+ Cleanliness: + Dorm: + Wifi: didn't work too well So I arrived early in the morning but couldn't drop my stuff and go to the city (like almost every hotel/hostel), no I needed to wait till check in time. That was really weird. I thought the staff were also a little bit weird. Wifi...

The bed is relatively comfortable but the place is a mess! The environment gave me a very messy and run down feeling. I book a bed in a room of ten beds and the clothes, shoes of other travelers are strewn around the cupboards and beds. When the receptionist show me the shelf where I can keep my food, the...

Located approximately 10 min. on food away from the main-pub/restaurant street, this hostel offers spacious dorms and a huge kitchen/common-area. That's the good side. The beds in the dorm were ok, the mattress uncomfortable. The e-plug for the bed was unusable due to it's shape. Few bathrooms. I only counted two mans-toilets and showers for a few dorms. Cleanliness is...

This place looks a little dated but looking at reviews of other places in beats them by miles and it has nothing a fresh kick of paint and a little TLC in some areas can't handle. It definitely has a nice vibe here; I'd stay here again and recommend to fellow travellers looking for a good Perth stay. Note: the...

When I arrived in this hostel there was no one at the reception. After a bit of a wait someone showed up and I could check in. This person had no idea how much I still had to pay, so I had to look it up myself. Besides that the room was very clean and the amenities aswell. The kitchen...

I love living at Spinners, wish i had moved here when i first got to Perth. Its more for people looking to stay long term and working full time, a lot of the girls i share with have been here for several months so they know a lot about perth and make you feel very welcome. The kitchen is always...

Seemed like a hub for long-stay visitors / those travelers who are working in Australia. As a one night visitor this atmosphere was a bit intimidating. Quite expensive for what was offered. Didn't feel like the cleanest place I've stayed. It seems that some guests were offered free wi-fi while others were not? The owner (I think?) was very nice...

I stayed here for 6 nights. The owner is friendly and very helpful. My room was private room for two with bunk bed. Even though the room is small but that was just enough for me and my friend to lay down and keep our things while we were out. The place is good to hang around and met new...

Really friendly backpackers with a great sense of community amongst the people staying there. It's small and basic but I loved every minute of staying there and made some life long friends while I was there. Great find.

Loved this place so much that after each tour we did on the West Coast, we kept going back! Good place to meet people and have drinks, but also chill and watch a movie and get a good nights sleep. Really clean toilets and kitchen too.
