Bit noisy but otherwise ok”

Have stayed here a number of times over the last 10 years plus. Always staying in the single room accommodation. Fantastic being right in the centre of party central Northbridge! I only ever try to stay in winter tho as it isn’t a comfortable stay in summer, as the fan supplied does little to cool the room, even at night. And opening a window you cop all the city noise.

Almost 5 ⭐️ ”

I feel lucky because my room is in a strategic position, otherwise I could hear the noise of all pubs around and the contyard, so keep that in mind, we are in CBD, so that could also happen in other hostels around this area. People are nice as well as the staff. If my window had had a mosquito net, everything would have been perfect!

10/10 Score on "conjunctivitis factor"”

Having stayed at multiple hostels, a key factor when I rate cleanliness is how badly I get conjunctivitis. Britannia is 10/10 because no dust and no conjunctivitis in the morning.

Decent, if you just need a bed”

Stayed here many times over the years and always get a single room, with shared bathroom. If you get into Perth late and need to leave early then it’s a good place, as there is no air con or heating and just a nightlight and fan. Great position tho right in the heart of Northbridge. Make sure you ask for room off street as the noise of cars and people is always happening.
