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...

It was ok, don't expect nothing great but it is a hostel. Good location and there is a free shuttle to the train station. Booked a private en-suite and it had a fan and fridge. It was ok for one night but I wouldn't want to stay in Cottlesloe for long anyway. Lovely place but not much to do of...

The rooms are clean and spacious with a locker each as well as a dedicated shelf. The hostel is across the road from the beach and the views are amazing It's 20minutes from Perth and there is a bar nearby as well as a shop and a couple of beach front restaurants/cafés

The location of this place is amazing. The beach is so close and there is a bus stop on the opposite side of the road to take you to Perth. A supermarket is a 5 minute walk away, or the station and woolworths, 15minutes. However this hostel is full of people who are staying there long term and working in...
