I've just recently been in Perth and stayed with friends in Scarborough. It has a pretty beach and a nice atmosphere but nightlife is not existing and it's quite far from the city. Especially at night you will have problems to get there with public transport. I personally would stay in a hostel in Fremantle (heaps of great bars/pubs) and avoid Nightbridge (can get quite dodgy at night walking around there).

hope this helps,

Steff
