I’ve stayed here for three months now. It is my first hostel and it was a perfect start in Australia. The staff is very friendly. They book tours for you for example to Rottnest Island with bicycle and snorkelling. Sometimes we get free popcorn or french toast - very delicious. The Coolibah Lodge also has great facilities everything you could...

Great people and staff, very big kitchen, nice public area, free breakfast (toast and cereal). Located in Northbridge close to many cute shops, nice cafes, bars and clubs and just a 10 minute walk from the city centre. Was a little bit cold in winter (windows were left open, no heater) but you geht enough blankets so it's okay while...
