Really poor hostel. Atmosphere was mostly dull. It's kind of all over the place in regards to lay-out. We had to walk through reception to get to the showers - not nice (for us or them) :( . Cheap, but then you get what you pay for! :rock:

Best Hostel so far!!

Came here about month ago straight from the west coast, Hadn't seen either a shower nor a bed in a week or something, but the friendly owners at the 12.01 Backpackers made us feel quite like home from the start here in Perth. And now we decided we will stay in perth and work for another 2 months or something, that's gonna be the longest staying on one certain hostel so far.The explanation for that is nothing less than that the 12.01 backpacker's is all good!!

I arrived at 12:01 shortly after the new owners had taken delivery. I had already stayed at a couple of Perth backpackers, which were variable, but I was mighty impressed by the welcome I received. Steve, Tom and Sandy have really bent over backwards to help out, even loaning me a father's old wedding suit for an interview. They are always working hard to promote an atmosphere of friendliness. There is a good mix of short-termers and long-timers and everyone gets on really well. There's a gym, free pool and table tennis and the owners regularly organise events like barbecues and outings. Full marks for 12:01, in my opinion. Hostels like this in the centre of Perth are pretty hard to find.

I had a booking here, but decided not to stay. The hostel is just a hole in a wall. It is horrible. Suited to those that dont know better. I went to Northbridge YHA where i enjoyed my stay.

I would say that my stay at 1201 Backpackers has been very enjoyable with the help of the two people running it. Phil and Val have excellent knowledge of the area and are very willing to help with any problems. The bar is a great addition to the facilities on offer at the hostel. I have spent a very enjoyable three weeks at 1201 and I will return back to th UK with happy memories. You can reserve bookings by email - 1201hotmail.com Don't forget to stroke the cat (Puss Puss ) when booking in !!!!
