firstly may i say i am an australian working in the pilbara and return to freo on my time off. I have travelled all around the world and have stayed in many hostels.
I have stayed at this hostel about three times now for 5 to four day periods at a time and after my last stay i am am bitterley dissapointed and disgusted that someone can run a business like this and not be shut down by the health department of australia.
Im not going to further tell you of my experience but i d like to bullet point what i saw....
1 bed bugs infestation in every room
2 cockroaches in the kitchens and sleeping qaurters
3 no pots or pans to cook with
4 no free internet when all other hostels offer it
5 no value for money when paying 200 hundred dollars a week when you can pay 130 in melbourne or sydney
6 the toilets can be smelt from outside and in into the kitchen and cooking areas and lounge.
this is dissapointing to know that i have even offered to help the owner under go electrical and maintenance work for free to improve the place but he just ignored it.
