Hi, can anyone recommend a good hostel in Perth. Im looking for somewhere nice-dont mind paying up to 30 dollars a night for a nice dorm room. I usually stay in YHA's but have heard some bad things about this hostel. Somewhere with a nice atmosphere but relatively quiet-im more interested in exploring perth than partying all night.
I stayed in the Emperor's crown hostel just after it had opened in November 2004 and thought it was really nice.
http://www.emperorscrown.com.au/index.asp. It's in Northbridge, a few minutes walk from the main centre.
the YHA in Perth is awful! I stayed there for 2 nights and it's the worst YHA I have ever stayed in - surprising as YHAs are normally fine.

Thanks for that-the website looks pretty good-i emailed them yesterday but no response so far-will give them a call tomorrow.
Any tips for must do activities in Perth?
Perhaps if you look on hostelworld.com you might be able to book through there.
In Perth I would recommend:
Kings park - nice to wander around
An afternoon in Fremantle visiting Fremantle prison
Have a delicious, cheap curry at Govinda's vegetarian Hare Krishna restaurant in Northbridge
day trip to the pinnacles desert including sandboarding
from Perth I did a trip down to Dunsbourough, Margaret river and Albany with easy rider tours which was really good.
i stayed at 1201 east backpackers ( http://www.1201east.com.au/main.html ) and had no problems with it, good hostel. clean, quiet and the staff were helpful & friendly. it's about a 10/15 min walk to the city or there's a free bus that can take ya...
enjoy perth, mico 82
