Ocean Beach Backpackers
Reviewed 28 March 2017 via mobile

The best part of this hostel is the location, walking distance to the beach. Lots of bars and restaurants around too. 15 minute walk from the train station. The only thing is it felt most people were long termers so not really people who wanted to socialise. Good price though, good sized rooms and a clean environment .

This was a great choice while in Perth! I loved staying in Cottesloe, and the hostel is right by the beach. There is a great coffee shop, grocery store, and laundromat right nearby so it's a great location. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and even gave us a ride to the train station when we were leaving really early in he morning, saving us a 15 minute walk in the chilly morning air. We had a private room with ensure and it was great for the price.
We aren't young party animals and the hostel was still really great for us- good vibes and friendly people. The only complaint is that on our last day the bar next door had a super loud afternoon party. Our room backed onto it and it was as loud as if we were there (we pretty much were). The music was off by 10pm which was lucky, but the cigarette smoke from the bar wafted into our room which was unfortunate. Totally not the hostels fault though, and I'd definitely stay here again- it's just a heads up :) it was a Sunday afternoon, so maybe best to plan to be out if you're not up for the festivities.

Not the cheapest of hostels but cheap enough. Big dorms and private rooms, clean enough and kept in good shape. Burger night is not to be missed!
This place is perfect for a backpacking couple or solo traveler. The staff are dead friendly and encourage integration within the hostel. Every night was party night while I was there but there are chill out areas as well. The TV room is good for a flake out.
Right next to one of the most beautiful beaches and oceans in the world, watching the sunset is a definite must.
I wouldn't recommend this place if you're looking for somewhere quiet to rest but if you want new faces, a good time and a stinking hangover the next morning, you are most definitely in the right place.

Great atmosphere and super friendly people! We stayed in a double private room and it was clean and very comfortable. The staff was also really friendly and happy to help. The wifi isn't free, but only a dollar an hour and works well! Plus, the restaurant does a super yummy pizza with a pint for 20 bucks :)
