I took some friends to Spinners last year and was invited to have drinks in the general lounge one afternoon. Phew second hand hi come in spinner...........420 The smoking is out of control. The boys had money stolen from the safe and left early never to return.

I stayed a Spinner's for quite a while a few years ago as Spinner got me a job working as a removal man with fat Gerry as I was low on funds. Had the best time of my life here never a dull moment even met a sexy little bird from Essex who I traveled the rest of Aus with. In fact we are now married with two kids and run our own Removal company in Colchester.

What can I say..... This is the coolest hostel I have stayed in, in Oz. Spinner does all he can for you eg best discounts on tours. He even got me a job!!! It has a real home atmosphere about it. Everyone relaxes and takes backpacking life as it should be!! If you want to experience the real Oz, western Oz is the place to go and Spinners is the place to stay.

Run down party place

This hostel is a party place very popular with British backpackers. I found it quite run down. There are 2 toilets and one of these doesn`t flush. Bathrooms were not clean and the `big kitchen` has poor facilities, like only 1 stove, 2 fridges that smell very bad, many broken pots and pans etc. There is a big lounge area with a TV where you`ll find many people hanging on the couch recovering from their hangover by watching Jerry Springer all day. At night the party begins and there is no way of sleeping. This hostel is one of these places I always try to avoid, but there might be people who actually like it.
