Good For Solo
Great hostel, right by the beach!
I loved it here, as far as I'm concerned, this hostel has got it spot on! Located in Cottesloe, about 15 mins west of Perth, it's a bit out of the way if you like to be right in the city. However, it is literally right by the beach, and there's a great atmosphere here. The staff are really friendly and cheerful here, and the hostel itself is also very sociable. You'll definitly make some new friends! The dorms are nice, and have fridges and lockers and are ensuite. Facilities include: good kitchen (and café if you can’t be bothered to cook!) TV room, games room with pool table and table tennis, internet access, bottle store, bars, laundrette, shuttle bus and 24 hour reception. The hostel also lends out beach balls, frisbees, boogie boards etc if you're going to the beach.
Unique Quality: For me, the best thing about this place is the atmosphere, I spent 3 weeks here, and was so sad when I eventually had to leave! The location is also outstanding, literally right next to the beach, and some of the dorms have Ocean views! Oh, they also have a deal where if you pay for a week's accomodation in advance, then you get the 7th night free!
Directions: From Perth, catch the train to Fremantle and get off at Cottesloe. If you give them a call when you get there, they'll try and come down and pick you up from the station. If they're unable to, they'll be able to give you further directions from there.
Ocean Beach Backpackers - Cottesloe, Perth
I lived here for 3 months and loved it- I had views of the sea from my room and the stunning beach is a 30 second walk away.
The staff are normally friendly and helpful and there is internet access downstairs.
They also have 2 lounges with video players.
The OB pub underneath is a good laugh and the Sunday Session down the road is unmissable! I worked at Beaches cafe and the sandwiches there are gorgeous, the coffee is also amazing- the greek guy who works there is the funniest man ever!
The surf is really good in the next beach along Swanbourne- a 5 minute walk away. and the hostel have body boards you can rent too.
If you want beaches on your doorstep and pubs a stones throw away it couldnt be better
Unique Quality: Beach access
Proximity to good bars
Good surf near by
