Liked: I stayed in a two bed room, it was very spacious and has its own mini fridge. The kitchen was kept very clean by the amazing owner (she seemed to be cleaning all the time :). The other guests were great, there seemed to be a lot of people staying there long term but they were all super friendly! There is also a great common area both inside and outside.

Disliked: I really liked this property but the location is a bit out of the way from the downtwon. There are bus stops very close by but the Perth metro can be a bit expensive when taking it all the time. With that being said if you have a car, bike, or like long walks its great.

Liked: The lady who runs the place is a really cool and helpful woman and will do whatever she can to help you out.

Disliked: The place is more like a guest house and has people staying there who are long-termers. One guy had been there nearly 2 years. This means the places is noisy a lot of the time especially at the weekend as the people are there to work and save money so entertain themselves in the guest house. The wifi is also very sketchy. May be better for those in there twenties. I'm not anymore.

Liked: The owner goes above and beyond to help guests. Extremely helpful

Disliked: The bathroom. The bathroom door does not lock and the toilet doors do not lock. The bathroom is shared facilities, with the toilets included in this room, so feared people walking in when having shower. No room in shower to put clothes and they got wet. Had to put clothes in the shower area due to the bathroom door not locking. The window in my room was open, when i closed it the fly screen was damaged and hole big enough for someone to entee from outside, whixh is a concern

Liked: The staff where extremely friendly and helpful, the facilities where good and we never really had any issues using them especially as it accommodates for so many people. Most of the other guests were friendly and easy to get on with. Also plenty of space for everyone which is a nice change from other places we've stayed.

Disliked: Cleanliness, mainly down to other guests but still was not at all good. There were ants in the kitchen and basically everywhere else for that matter. The 'long stayers' took over the place quite a bit but on the most part were fairly friendly so wasn't such an issue. The location was pretty annoying as it's quite far from everywhere, public transport is cheap so not a big issue but not at all idea. Personally I'd recommend short stay travellers to spend a bit more money and stay in Fremantle as that's where all the beaches are and where most stuff is happening (there's not actually a lot to do in Perth unless you have lots of money) I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone who's looking to stay for a week or more.

Liked: Lovely friendly hostel. Owner Mei and husband very friendly and helpful. They have done a lot of improvements over the past year. I liked my room and wifi was fast. Good atmosphere in hostel and easy to meet other travellers. Large widescreen tv in lounge. Large kitchen. 3 outdoor seating areas ideal for drinking a beer and chilling out. Still in zone 1 so from hostel only costs $4.20 each way on bus and train to Cottesloe Beach or Fremantle ( buy 2 zone ticket to get to beach ) . Directions to hostel, get bus 72 or 75 from Espanade Bus Port $2.80 ( free bus transfer from Perth Bus Stn ) and ask driver to tell you when you are at Berwick St by junction of Leonard St. Walk up Leonard St 3 minutes and hostel is on the left. From hostel 10 mins walk to Woolworths and 15 mins walk to Coles/Target. Lots of good bars and shops about 10 mins walk. Enjoyed staying here and will be back.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: I like the size of Victoria Park Lodge. Small enough to be homely and noncommercial feeling. Great very friendly staff and travelers. It is on a few bus routes so not hard to get to the city, and since it is out far enough there's no traffic noise at night.

Disliked: Security could be improved though I've not heard of anything going missing from there. If you are fussy it may not be up to your cleanliness standards.

Liked: It's a small, family- atmosphere Hostel. The people are nice and friendly, especially the owner who cares a lot and has always a smile on her face. The value for price is the best in Perth because it's clean, Location isn't that bad (you only need about 10 min to the city with the bus) and there is free wifi.

Disliked: The people are nice, but almost everybody was older than me (20 years) which made it kind of hard to connect sometimes.
