There are plenty of places to socialise or just chill by yourself. The kitchen is also big although we didn't use it's facilities. The...

Sundancer is probably the most low-key hostel in Fremantle and it is awesome. Everyone there is so chill and the staff is so helpful. This is definitely the place to stay if you are looking for a cheaper option that will still allow you to meet dome really cool people while living in the middle of Fremantle. I docked one...

Do not go there, the people who have bought the place have no experience in running a backpackers. The bathrooms are not cleaned everyday, so wear thongs when having a shower. The fridges are never cleaned and there is rotting matter in them. The place has become violent as the standards are so low and the management are afraid to...

Great place to stay, always cool people around to have a chat with, or you can chill out the back, or wath a movie. The bar is cheap and has foxtel/pool/table tennis. Staff are friendly and more than willing to help. Absolutely reccomend this place.
