Mad Cat Backpackers: Australia's best backpackers

This hostel is centrally located, only five minutes walking from the shopping mall, and close to Northbridge-nightlife. The trainstation is just around the corner too, so the location couldn't be more convenient.

Once a week there's a free barbecue or pizza night for all the people staying in the hostel. More features: a big TV-room, chill out Video-room with nice couches, plenty of bathrooms, a pool table, dart board, pinball, table football, well equipped kitchen with a huge walk-in fridge, free secure parking, free tea, coffee and rice every day

The message board at reception is updated daily and it includes the weather report for the day, suggested activities for the day and the night and all kinds of offers on tours and trips.

Amazingly enough the hostel is very cheap, despite all the great service. Depending on the room you get and the amount of days you stay (weekly rates) you pay between AU$10 and AU$14 a night for a dorm room (4 to 10 people in a room).

All the great features of the hostel make it the best backpackers I've visited in Oz (during a 1-year trip!). Probably the best thing about Mad Cat is the atmosphere. The minute you walk in you feel welcome and because of all the group activities you get to know a lot of people.

There's group activities during the day (e.g a football match against another hostel on Monday, sports in the park, etc.) and the night (e.g. a quiz where you can win a bar tab at one of the bars in Northbridge, nights out in different bars, etc.). Participation is voluntarily, but almost inevitable cause you just get dragged into it.

Once you've been to this place you understand what a good hostel is all about: well organised, well equipped, low room rates, social atmosphere and lots of group activities. Bottom line: Mad Cat caters for all a backpacker wants.

Best thing to do is bring your air mattress if you are going into the bush, I love sleeping under the stars but if you aren't sure bring your tent.
Take more water than you think you can drink per day you exprct to be away, I usually take 2 litre containers and allow 2 a day.

find them, the last place I camped was 200 meteres from an eagles nest.

Again, depends on your budget...

Again, depends on your budget and areas you want to see. I work in a hotel on Scarborough beach (5-star) called Rendezvous Observation City Hotel. There are lower priced hotels in scarborough though as well as a backpackers' hostel. Several inner-city hotels are supposed to be great. To name a few, try; Hyatt, Grand Chancellor, Novotel Langley. There are several more.
Any price range, any budeget. You will always find a place to stay somewhere that suits your budget

Great views and easy access to most places no matter where u choose to stay.

Resort: Dunsborough Bay Village Resort...

If you want to explore the southern region of Western Australia. I highly suggest you stay in Dunsbourough(in summer).Dunsboruogh is only minutes away from busselton and central to places like Margaret River, and Yallingup AND not far from one of the most beautiful places in the southern region - Cape Naturaliste
We stayed in the villa that accomadates 8 people(there are smaller types available. The lower storey had 3 bedrooms, laundry and toilets and the upper storey with a balcony - the entertainment area that contained every thing - aircon, plenty of couches, stereo, t.v and vcr and fully equipped kitcean.

Has it's own chinese restaurant, indoor pool, spa(not heated though) and sauna as well as poolside kiosk. Choice of activity programs - scuba diving, scenery flight over magaret river, tennis courts, mini golf. Special services - change of linen, inhouse movies etc.

The Resort was a 5 minute walk to the beach and 5 minute walk to the city centre. This was very convient for ourselves

Mandurah Gates Resort: Mandurah Gates Resort

There were 12 of us and we booked 2 rooms. It only cost 50 dollars for two nights!!!!!!!!! a real bargain.

The appartments that we stayed in were simple yet extremely comfortable. There was a bathroom, two bedrooms, balcony, kitcean and t.v.

All appartments surrounded the pool, sauna and tennis courts and most importantly a HEATED spa. Every night the resort would hold a party providing meals and afterwards they opened the pool side bar. We were a young group however their were families. It was a great aussie atmosphere.

Harbour Village Resort - Quest: Appartments on Freo's Harbour

I have stayed here numerous times, often for bdays, the location is great to gone out into freo and walk back to the appartments.

Price is very reasonable.

There's 1,2 and 3 bedroom apartments available. Thery are all fully furnished and equipped. beautiful views. Make sure you request a room on the waterfront. all appartments have rooms with a view of the waterfront but one side is located on the waterfront. we stayed in a three storey appartment with all facilities, one queen bed with balcony, and four single beds in two seperate rooms. being located in walkable distance to the city centre, if you are on a budget why not buy food from the supermarkets and cook a dinner. the rooms may be pricy but there are plenty of budget food places in Fremantle as well as tours and activities.

There are some great cottages in Margaret River set right out in the bush, but you may get visited by the local wildlife, not always a bonus!

In the Bush,
Fab Shower!!!
Quite expensive, sleeps 6, if you split it might be good.

Get a weekly rental appartment at South Perth area or city area, it's better than staying in a hotel.

I was fortunate to be able to stay with my aunt and uncle in Perth but for those of you not fortunate enough to have relatives with a large bungalow check out http://www.travelaustraliahotels

Perth has a large range of accommodations including hotels, suites, motor inns, serviced apartments (suites) and backpacker accommodations. Perth, in fact, has the highest number of first class hotel rooms, on a pro-rata basis, of any city in Australia.

Mandurah Inn: Mandurah Inn



Nice enough.
The whole thing is made of concrete blocks, making it quite bulky, but each room has a little kitchen. The hotel is well situated.

Hostels and Airbnb

In 2001, I stayed at the Ozi Inn hostel in Northbridge...they have 2 buildings, the first is part of the main reception and is about $17/night , the second is a seperate small building, rather like a huge house with just 20 odd beds and only $11/night. i stayed at the $11/nt building and had a great time...a brilliant crowd was there at the time and we all got pretty wrecked every night!

In 2013, we stayed at 3 different places:
-Pamelia Hilton-got a cracking deal on the net before we left for $100/night - i wouldnt say this is a 5 star hotel, i'd say 3.5-4 star but its great all the same-prefect location in the CBD.
Its got a small pool, a decent gym and some restaurants that we didnt entertain as the prices were too high ($42 for a fried breakfast!!!!).
Staff were friendly.
-Airbnb at susanna's in mount lawley - we used airbnb for $100/night - great location, this is a great suburb. lovely flat with views of the CBD skyline.
-Billabong backpackers - Highgate/mount lawley on Beaufort street - large backpackers with no real soul. Staff not too friendly. Its swamped with information boards and its one of the few that has a pool. But i didnt find it very friendly. We had a double room which was massive and had a small balcony. Brekafast is incldued (just toast or cereal) in the $90 double room price. They have parking.
