    The YHA is very clean and very centrally located in the city of Perth. The only negativ about the Perth City YHA is the noise of the trains passing through just behind the house. Free WIFI in public areas, pool and free storage room. WIFI in the room costs 5.-- AUD for 24h.

    We have stayed at this hostel many times and always come back. The reason is its facilities, location and standards and efficiency of staff. Particularly like the kitchen facilities that are available. The YHA car park alongside is very handy.

    Good location, excellent wifi, has lockers and next to Perth Central station. Near CBD. Windows don't have flyscreens.

    The bathrooms were great with lots of space and cleaned daily. I stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm, the room was tiny but the locker space ok, and we each had our own reading light, the aircon worked well too. The trains are pretty noisy! Def need ear plugs if you're a light sleeper! The bar downstairs was good for coffee and food if you are feeling lazy, although wasn't the most comfortable of atmospheres at times! Overall the hostel didn't seem too sociable, it was easier to meet people as a smoker. I enjoyed my stay and I would recommend as long as you remember ear plugs :)

    This is a great hostel. The first room I was put in was so hot and the air conditioning was super noisy but I went and spoke to the reception staff and they moved me to a different room straight away. The only negatives I would have with this hostel is the proximity to the railway tracks makes it really noisy at the back of the building at night (although, nothing they can do about this now) and the fact that the hostel seems to be about 10degrees hotter than the outside world which can be unbearable when it's 36 degrees outside! Otherwise, happy customer!

    I was upgraded from single room to double with ensuite at no extra cost. The room was new and very nice with AC and TV Just like a hotel without a fridge

    Customer Reviews on

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
