Looking for a hostel?

Budget travelers know there's no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: Save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a little more.

    Clean, safe accommodation in a great city location. As a solo female traveller, I felt comfortable and safe at hostel G. It was only a short walk from McIver Station (before Perth central), so it was easy for me to get there using the train straight from the airport with my luggage. Staff were friendly. Check in and check out was very quick and easy. I would stay here again.

    Amazing backpackers hostel unlike any other, a bit pricey but it's worth it. Toilets are attached to the room which is a huge bonus point. Each bed has dedicated plug points and light, the room has windows so you don't feel cramped.

    I felt very safe whilst staying there, the kitchen was always clean and had all the facilities I needed, there was plenty of room for food in the fridge. The place was very quiet and there was room to sit outside. The shared bathroom was never in use by others and was always clean. The room was clean and the bed was soft. It was a perfect place to recharge the batteries after staying in very loud hostels. Great location to find work in hospitality.

    Best hostels in Perth City if you are looking for private rooms on a budget. They are doing renovations at the moment but nothing that would bother your rest in the evening. Ask the owner for a discounted rate if you are a repeat customer.
