Best hostel in Fremantle area
Amaizing staff, good vibes, job assistance, perfect position. Best hostel in Fremantle area. Place called home far away from home.
Best hostel in oz
Stayed here from sept 09-jan 10. Without doubt my favourite hostel i stayed in during my whole year in oz. Warm, friendly atmosphere, great parties, laid back, staff are amazing. Loved it and miss it lots.
Rancid mess of a hostel
I have stayed in hostels all over the world, but dirtwise the Firestation takes the cake. Imagine an ill-aired locker room, where the patrons are allowed to live indefinitely (mix in alcohol and other bodily fluids), and don't clean it more than once a week. I would rather spend the rest of my life eating off the floor of a public bathroom than stay in this hostel ever again.
The worst place ever
The worst place I've ever stayed. Loud music all night and people screaming and behaving like small children. When you ask them in the middle of the night to be a bit more quiet, they tell you to f*** off, and sleep somewhere else. Small, hot rooms, and dirty.
A great hostel and atmosphere made fantastic by the people. I'd be tempted to go on holiday to Freo just to stay there! A big thanks to Alex (staff/co-owner) who let in after hours when they were fully booked. The couch was comfy as! Certainly the most friendly hostel I've stayed in.
Did you know that they have a wall covered with chins? well, yes, they most certainly do.
I stayed in this hostel for six weeks and really liked it. There is a great atmosphere in the hostel with lots of friendly people. I stayed in the fifteen-bed Pleasuredome dorm -- might sound a nightmare but so many of the guests there were such a good laugh! It might not be the cleanest hostel ever but has real character and friendly staff. The courtyard is very social and has a free jukebox with over ten thousand songs. I would recommend this hostel and would definitely recommend staying in Fremantle over staying in Perth city centre.
I've been in quite a few hostels around the world but this one was by far the best. Miss it and you miss probably the best time of your life.
