This is a good hostel if you want somewhere more like a hotel. Its really clean and modern, but its not got a family atmosphere. The tv room is small and not enough room for everyone - the communal areas are small and uncomfortable and the ktichen and outside space closes at 10.30pm. I was worknig when I was staying her e- so its ideal for that. Most people seemed to go to bed early, and it also has people coming from the mines. I think its an upbudget hostel and low budget hotel. Its $29 a night which is more expensive than others in Perth - but its also clean - so you pay for that. Met some really nice peolpe here - but most seem to be passing through. Staff are ok - most are people behind the desk are staying there and working for free accomodation - so they don't really give a sh*t. All in all - nice enough place, but not warm and friendly.

Not a 24hr check in. After 9 they hide a key.
Pros
clean bathrooms & quiet dorm rooms

Overall was a good stay.. the rooms are clean and the bathrooms were clean. But I think that saying they have 24 hour reception is a bit of a lie. The office is only open 8-9 and when asked why someone isn't there to check people in after hours you're asked if you want to pay more so that the desk can be manned.

Well-maintained hostel in good location

I stayed here for about 10 days in total, in 2 separate stays. With the hostel being relatively new, the facilities were generally in good condition (loved the showers), with one glaring exception being the bunks, which squeaked like crazy (as did the floorboards) - I'm talking about simply climbing in, or turning over in bed, nothing more energetic ;-) Fast and cheap Internet was a big plus, and the location is very close to Northbridge for all your eating/drinking requirements. Lewis the manager (?) was helpful and unfailingly chirpy. There did seem to be a lot of long-term residents here, which (as usual) meant the dorms were quite untidy, and people were a bit cliquey. Also, the people in my dorm kept wedging the door open, meaning the security wasn't so great. Would stay here again.

this was our first stay in a hostel when travelling from home in the uk, and we were pleasantly surprised at the facilities and the general atmosphere. everything was crisp and new, with really good kitchen facilities and excellent computer access. altogether a brilliant place to stay, really near the pubs of northbridge, but near enough away to get a decent nights kip!
