We stayed here for falls festival and it made our trip 10x better
We were in the middle of town, walking distance from everything (especially hungry jacks)
The rooms were tidy and so cute, and staff were really friendly!
This place is completely affordable with a diverse band of guests.
Will defiantly be back in the near future ❤️

I spent a wonderful time with all the pirates in this hostel! If you are looking for a very social surrounding and great vibes among all the backpackers you should stay at Pirates Backpackers. The location is perfect, right next to the Fremantle Markets and the Market Street with many nice cafés, restaurants, clubs and also close to the beach. The owner Vaughan and the receptionists are wonderful people who make everyone feeling very welcome. Moreover, there are a lot of different activities offered by the owner, so there is no time to get bored. My highlight was definitely the trip to Lancelin where we enjoyed surfing at an empty beach, sandboarding on the dunes and the Pinnacles. Would always come back again to this great place! :)

Thanks "Ness" ... a total pleasure having you here as you know :)
And the Lancelin trip was definitely a highlight as always. Some good moves in the surf and the dunes shown by you :)
Take care and thanks again,
Vaughan

a smaller hostel with a great vibe that allows everyone to mingle and have fun without being a full out party hostel. The hostel owner also offers some great activities for the guests some for free others like paddle boarding for a small fee.
The location is great and some travellers end up staying for weeks and i cant say i blame them.

Claire....Thanks so much :)
We loved having you here. You were quickly a part of the Pirates family and it felt a lot longer than 1 week that you were here. Have a brilliant Christmas back home and be sure to come back to the west for a visit.
Take care,
Vaughan

I stayed only a few days, but many travellers spend weeks before or during travels through Australia. Thus it's an excellent place to get information and to practice your party skills. Friendly and helpful staff, better book before you go, often booked out.
