The best part of this hostel is the location, walking distance to the beach. Lots of bars and restaurants around too. 15 minute walk from the train station. The only thing is it felt most people were long termers so not really people who wanted to socialise. Good price though, good sized rooms and a clean environment .

This was a great choice while in Perth! I loved staying in Cottesloe, and the hostel is right by the beach. There is a great coffee shop, grocery store, and laundromat right nearby so it's a great location. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and even gave us a ride to the train station when we were leaving...

This place is perfect for a backpacking couple or solo traveler. The staff are dead friendly and encourage integration within the hostel. Every night was party night while I was there but there...

Great atmosphere and super friendly people! We stayed in a double private room and it was clean and very comfortable. The staff was also really friendly and happy to help. The wifi isn't free, but only a dollar an hour and works well! Plus, the restaurant does a super yummy pizza with a pint for 20 bucks :)

I love the backpacker experience unfortunately my 60year old friend found it too noisy. I slept well as beds were comfortable. Facities included our own bathroom, table and chairs, hanging space, fridge, kettle, ironing board and iron. You could hire crockery and available kitchen to make meals. We only stayed one night as the atmosphere was really for the younger...

Dorm, bathroom and kitchen facilities were dirty. Food was kept in rooms which also caused a bad smell. Location was good and there is plenty if free parking. Would not return to this hostel or recommend to anyone.

Such a nice place to start your Australia adventure. Met a lot of nice people which I am still meeting during my travels here and there and had heaps of fun! Hostel is directly in front the beautiful Cottesloe Beach, where the sea is incredibly clear and you can snorkel very well. Staff is very nice and friendly. The rooms...
