Whats the best hostel in Perth?

Recommended Posts

Guest smigs

Hi all,

Me & a buddy are arriving in Perth in a couple of weeks & don,t have any contacts for either work or accomodation.

Does any body have experience of the hostels in Perth?

Is it a good place to start looking for work?

We are thinking of buying a campervan so we have transport as well as a bed.

Any advice would be great.

Thanks, Pete....

PS. we are a roofer & a plasterer....but i dont mind washing pots n pans....

There's a couple of Hostels in Fremantle, you also see a lot of backpackers working in the restaurants and hotels in that area, though things are a bit quiet at the moment due to it being winter, but as soon as the weather warms it picks up. it's very popular with backpackers. Hostels are a great place to get in the 'loop'.

 

Check out the link, it maps and rates the hostels in WA. http://www.yha.com.au/hostels/wa/

Thanks Tisme,

Whats the best way to Freemantle from Perth airport?

Is there a bus or train or is it a taxi ride?

You could use public transport, bus is the only option from the airport, no train link yet. Below is a link to the public transport website, it includes bus and train times for everywhere.

Taxi fare to Freo will be around $30-$40.

 

I am assuming you and your mate are a couple of backpackers on a WHV??? if you are you'll love Freo, lots of bars, restaurants, and generally a great place to be, even for the not so young. :)

 

Freo hostels are popular so I would advise you book before arriving.

Thanks for the info Tisme.

Yes were a couple of not so young backpackers looking for work & a good time so Freo sounds like the place to start.

thanks again, Pete....
