It is only 40 minutes from Perth and has a train station and bus port for easy transportation to and from your Fremantle hostel and in and out of town.

Freo itself is quite small and can easily be explored by foot or bike. A very informative visitor centre lies in the heart of the city with countless pamphlets and activity deals for the area. Your Fremantle hostel should also have information and activity suggestions. Markets are also frequently held in town with fresh food, live music, and unique crafts. The Little Creatures Brewery resides in Freo and is a popular tourist stop. Remarkable seafood restaurants line the wharf and compete for the title of "best fish and chips". Water taxis leave Freo Port for Rottnest Island several times a day allowing for a day or overnight trip to the island.

There are many backpackers hostels in Fremantle to choose from with great meal deals and competitive pricing. Freo is generally safe so location of the hostel is not too important; most are located on the same streets. Grocery, liquor, ATMs, and chemist are all easy walking access. Freo’s lovely atmosphere and friendly locals make it easy to spend at least a week in town.
