A friend and me did a trip through australia. We stayed in many hostels and hotels in different cities. But the Witch`s Hat was the best of all! Great people ( many germans, british, french and italian people). We all had a great time, because every evening you stay together in the court of the hostel and have fun. The...

If you need some advise for your first stay in Australia there is a lot of backpackers to help you. The hostel is 20 min from the city centre. And, if you need a quiet place because you work, this is the place to be.

Clean, tidy and we'll maintained accommodation. I had the double bedroom option, but would quite comfortably book a shared option next time! There are nightly events organised for the traveller on a budget, as well as good maintained communal areas. There is cctv around the clock, and pass codes to enter the building. The area feels a really safe area,...

We stayed in a two person room, which was a good and clean room. Even as it was quite small, literally just fit the two single beds in. The bathrooms have been very clean, the hostel has a large kitchen and there are also lots of restaurants nearby. It is about a 25min walk to Perth City (St. Georges Terrace)...

This is not a typical hostel. It's very well located, awesome environment, clean, organized. They provide breakfast every morning and they can keep your luggage for free if your flight is late in the night. I booked a bed in a 6-people-dorm and for my surprise, I got a bed in a three-people-bedroom. Definetely a nice place to stay in...
