Ciao Andrea & Cristina :)
Thanks so much for doing the great review of Pirates. As you know, we all loved having you guys here. You were definitely a big part of the Pirates Family and you guys are missed.
By the way Andrea, the job we got you is in good hands since you left, although the new guy had a lot to live up to :)
Take care guys and I really hope to see you some time again.

All of the people I met here (staff included) are absolutely wonderful. The beds are comfy and you get your own locker and lock for the time you are staying. I was only here for a week and wish I could have stayed longer. The location is great, the Fremantle markets are right at the end of the road, the train station is a little less than a 10 minute walk, and there's a beach within short walking distance!
I highly recommend staying here, it really has that home away from home vibe.

I loved my stay at this hostel! The staff is absolutely the most friendly staff I have encountered while traveling in Australia and the owner organizes really nice trips such as bush walks and wine tasting tours, which I both recommend ;). The beds are really comfy and everyone has his own spacious locker, which made the rooms way more tidy than in other hostels. The kitchen is a bit small, but that is the only bad thing I can say about this place. I only stayed for two weeks, but I made some friends for life here!

G'day Fleur (Speedy!)
It was great having you here. You definitely have the record for the fastest trekker on the bush walk :)
It was great to see you get into the Pirates life so easily.
Enjoy your new job and we look forward to hopefully seeing you back here when you've finished.
Take care Speedy :)
