Coolibah is a great place to stay when you're looking to experience Perth and make friends-- the place is relaxed, clean and welcoming with good common areas. The staff is very helpful and friendly (must meet Kathleen). I stayed there for two weeks and felt very at home by the end, well, actually from day one on.. Location is good,...

Very clean, friendly, the atmosphere is great! I recommend !! I went for two weeks, no stealing, you forget your wallet with money, you come back it is still there, it must depend on the people who are there but everyone respect!

I really enjoyed my overnight stay at this nice and clean hostel. There is a lot of space to socialise in there, with a couple of backyards to stay outside. The free breakfast in the morning is a real plus. I also appreciated the fact that you can purchase beer straight from the reception which doesn't seems to be a...

I stayed here for a month when I first arrived in Perth and loved it immediately. It became one big family as the weeks went on, especially as most of the people here are long termers. It was a very social hostel, most people would be up for a drink or too many to remember most evenings. During the day...

I stayed in the hostel for a month and I really enjoyed the time there. The reception is really friendly and helpfull. The hostel is the cleanest hostel I had in Australia. There have a nice big kitchen and outside area. There had a lot of rules, that was the only thing I did not like so much.

We stayed here for about a week in August. It was cold. I think it was Maria (sorry if that's wrong) on reception who checked us in and she was LOVELY the whole time we were there!! She gave us extra blankets and was always really kind. The rooms were fine! A little tired and no lockers.. Luckily I knew...

We got lucky at this hostel as we ended up in a 3 bed room instead of the 8 bed mixed dorm we originally booked. This was due to a slight mix up on arrival where we had been booked into an all girls dorm by mistake. This was resolved quickly at reception which was great considering we arrived at...

Excellent front desk service! The social atmosphere here is perfect. A courtyard with pool table and darts, two common areas with comfy couches, large tv's and an abundance of dvd's. Facilities are quite adequate. Two kitchens, a licensed bar. The rooms were clean, quiet and comfy. As a regular traveler for work, I will definitely be using this as my...

Such a great place to stay, helpful staff and a relaxed environment. Several different areas to locate yourself with the company you prefer, multi kitchens and washing facilities so your not waiting or on top of each other. There's a pub next door and the vibrancy of north ridge is a short stroll if you wish, take it or leave...
