Overnight Stay
Stayed the night for a heritage weekend. Fantastic facilities for backpackers. We are a middle aged couple and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this style of accommodation. Ensuite room was lovely. Would stay again. So much to do in Fremantle.

Unique experience
Totally unique to stay in prison cells. Cells are basic; lower cells lack any furniture, upper cells are better equipped with table, stool and a fan

Good for price
Room was as stated, fan was broken but swapped by staff for working fan. Bunk beds were uncomfortable and room smelt stale. Prison was pretty cool and location was great.
