Second stay at Pirates in one year: done! At the end of my six weeks here, this cozy bubble of happiness and love has been promoted to 'family away from home'. The cuddliest hostel in the world...I'm already thinking about a round 3!

I spent 4 weeks out of 5 at Pirates. Month of December 2017. I have to say it was a beautiful and forever stay with me experience. I met so many wonderful people! Tasha, Jen, Vaughan and I can go on....thank you for bringing me there and keeping me there. I loved it! Felt safe and really happy. The location couldn't be better, just a few min from B Shed port, Markets, Train Station etc. Great atmosphere at the Hostel, loved Jen's guitar times, clean room and bathrooms, helpful and caring. Activities organised by the owner Vaughan are amazing road trips for volley ball, and far destinations like Sand Dunes and Pinnacles at Namburg National Park. A great adventure of laughter and fun. Too many synchronicities happened to me there, that are out of this world, so I will be back, sooner than later.

Room Tip: i think my room was the best location. Room 5. Nice and quieter.

G'day Marijeta :)
It was great having you here over December. Thanks for getting so involved in the activities...the highlight definitely being our trip up to Lancelin and the Pinnacles.
Thanks for your great review, and also the photos are brilliant! Really good!
Well we'll definitely be looking forward to having you back one day and in the meantime your painting will remain proudly hanging on the wall :) Take care.

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,

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
