perths worst hostel

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 1, 2012

to all of my friends at one world, past and present thank you for all of the wonderful memories. my only regret is that my departure was on such bad terms. the management is solely to blame for that however.
the only thing that i find more abhorrant than the way in which rob and i were removed from the hostel is the behaviour of senior staff in the aftermath of our departure. one has to ask, is it appropriate for a hostel manager to discuss guests, former or current, on his personal social network site? is it appropriate to make derisive comments about your customers on a public forum if you work in any branch of hospitality? certaily not. it is this total lack of decorum that has the man in the position he is currently in. perhaps if he truly was as all knowing and intelligent as he thinks he is he would not be managing a little hostel at the age of 49 but would have risen to greater things than 40,000 dollars a year.
one must also ask is it appropriate for a man of his years to be lingering about the hostel after hours and insisting that if you are to stay at his hostel you must be a mate of his and fit in with his idea of ideal "hostel dynamics". it is not appropriate. young people are made uncomfortable by his presence there. surely the duties of manager do not stretch to socialising with guests and attempting to influence the lives of people as part of his psychological experiment.
the owners of the hostel should take a look at the man they have chosen to be the face of their hostel, they should look at his work rate, as well as the aforementioned issues, and they may see that if he were removed from his position he would pass away as though he were never there, his legacy nothing but a bad memory in a place filled with otherwise good memories.
anyway i will not allow a bitter little hobbit to sully the good memories of a wonderful place.
cheers to all of you.

Not Nice

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 11, 2012

To look at this place one would think nice,friendly,welcoming. This was not the case however. The check-in ran quite smoothly but after hours was when the torture began. This place is extremley cliquey and unfriendly. Alot of people have been staying there for an unhealthy amout of time, although i soon found out there is an unspoken rule that the hostel is now not taking long term backpackers or anyone wanting to work, but isnt this what mose backpackers do when travelling?
The guy that runs the place is super sly and has been known to just 'ask' people to leave! I was told to be on guard from him and keep my head low for the few weeks i was there.
Rules around the place make it very hard to enjoy your time here. Drinking every night is a problem. And the manager made me want to leave asap!!
Dont waste your time and try out the few homely backpackers like Coolibah or Witches Hat!

One World Backpackers - the best

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 23, 2006

The eco-friendly OWB is the best backpackers i've stayed at in Australia.It's small,it's homey, it's spotlessly clean, the kitchen is fantastic, there's a courtyard at the back to socialize and a luxurious TV lounge. Sounds too good to be true? Not at all, even the location is perfect, a mere 5 min walk from the pubs, clubs and restaurants of Northbridge and yet it's quiet, sheltered by a park. The dorms are spacious and have comfy beds, the bathrooms were always clean. Even though it's not a typical party hostel (and suitable for people who like peace and quiet), it's a very sociable place and i've had some of the best times here on my Australia trip.
Dorm beds between 18-22$, great value

Unique Quality: This is *the* place to stay in Perth if you're a backpacker!!!
Truly a home away from home!!!!
Thanks guys
