For value for money - NOTHING comes close to this ”

PRICE, LOCATION, PRICE

I do FIFO work but as a chef don't get paid anywhere near what (I am worth) other FIFO workers get, so I can't waste money. I'll stay here if it's just a night before flying out, if it's for 4 hours to get some sleep after coming in from OS before a flight or if it is for the whole R & R week, because of it's location to great eateries and bars, for it's very low price and for the helpfulness of the staff. This last stay I arrived around midnight to be greeted and checked in by a helpful and cheerful young Dutch guy - certainly better than the drone like greetings you get from 4 or 5 star hotels. for about a third of the price of a fancy Nancy hotel the minor inconvenience of a shared bathroom (which is never crowded and always clean) it really is a no brainer. More loot for the nights on the piss!! - or that special gift for that special one!!! Great value for money

clean location

pros: 1. it s much more clean than i expected. 2. the staffs are helpful. 3. the bed s considered quite good. 4. blue cat s within walking distance, few minutes. train also x far away. bus station also x far. 5. not noisy (except the cars passed by..but i still can sleep when the window s closed) 6. kitchen s good (and provides free tea bag) 7. can store ur luggage at ground floor (free) cons: 1. only 1 plug in the room, so when i charged my phone, i cant turn on the fan. 2. the food are not that cheap. nearest fast food (cheap) is subway. (no mcD, KFC, hungry jacks) 3. no wifi. 4. cant check in earlier. have to wait till 12 p.m. tips: 1. if u take bus (bus 37 or 40) from airport and lazy to walk..then after u get off from the bus, just look for nearest blue cat and get off at station 12. then u can walk to britannia. 2. if u r lazy to walk 2 d train station, then take blue cat and get off at horse-bridge station/bus station and walk to the station.

Location was the only good thing about this place”

Location is really great. You are right in the heart of Northbridge. There are many eateries and shops nearby plus Perth train station, and the CBD is just 15mins away on foot. But that's the only good thing about this hostel. Single room was very small and noisy, with noise coming from the main street. You had to have your window opened to get some air. Bed was very old and uncomfortable and the pillow was paper thin and completely useless. I had to put lots of my clothes under the pillow to make it higher. Room carpet was completely stained and the whole place wasn't too clean. It is an old house but overall not kept very nice. Free wifi was "working" only in the reception area. I said "working" because most of the time it was so slow that you couldn't even download an e-mail. Arriving from places like Indonesia and Vietnam where you have fast free wifi in every place, I couldn't believe that this was happening in Australia! Staff was so-so. Just ok. Nothing beyond ok.

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.

Staff, Location, Amenities

The hostel is not new, as with almost all buildings in Perth. They have a lot of options for rooms (twin, twin bunk, dorm, etc). The standout was the service. The staff remembers everyone's faces and are very helpful (i lost my key and they returned it, they helped us get an airport taxi, etc).

location, price, friendly staff

The stay was good for the price paid. The staff were friendly and reception was manned 24/7, and there was lots of information available in the lobby. The bathrooms were kept clean and the kitchen was well maintained. The room was basic with a bed, a fan, and a stained table and plastic chair, but the bed was comfortable and the fan was efficient. The part of the hostel where my room was located was nice and quiet.

A hostel close to everything”

close to Northbridge restaurants, close to city free bus and close to railway station

The hostel only offers paid wifi service and does not offer any free breakfast but its room rates are lower than those offering them and is close to the city centre and train station. It is only guests who are inconsiderate who pay hostel rates but expect services like hotels, e.g. not washing dishes/cups and making the room a mess.

Once you checkout, you were expel from this hostel”

I have booked 3 rooms for 2 days to my family & my brother at Britannia on William Backpackers, Perth. Since I have a midnight departure flight, I have extended 1 of the rooms to 3 days so that I can put my family’s luggage & packing luggage before goto airport (We worry luggage store is unsafe, because hostel is no liability for the luggage loss, theft or damage.). So, 2nd. day morning, I checkout 2 rooms and I was told to move out all of my luggage except the one stay in extended room. The reception talk very unfriendly and I felt that am I a criminal to her. why I cannot put my family luggage into my booked extended room since we will check-out in the evening of the day? Not even that, I cannot go up to room that I booked. The reception insisted that we cannot put our luggage upstair to my booked extended room and they do not have the patience and tolerance to their own customers to discuss and solve our problem. The only thing they said is NO, NO and NO! They even said that they will go up to check the room whether we have moved down all of our luggage. Is this make sense? We did pay for the room. Do they have respect us? Not only the reception problem, the rooms condition provided to us is totally bad. We feel that we are staying inside the prison. The room with single bulb pillow and bed with not a very good condition and dirty. Another thing about room is the air is not validate even there is a window with half open. The FREE WIFI is only provided at smoking area & line is weak, I am not a smoker and I can't stand the smell of smoke. Other than that, the smoking area is very noisy with the youngster having their own party, drinking alcohol. It is not a comfortable zone for myself and also my family to using their FREE WIFI. Toilet/shower room with insufficient light, dirty & smell. Kitchen with cockroaches and the sinks always stuck with the food and water. This hostel really ruins my last day in Perth for my vacation!
