Fremantle Prison YHA, what a place to stay!
This old prison, now a hostel, is very nice and our stay was great! It's a very easy walk to the main town area, which has so many places to eat and do touring around. Food in the area is very good, and there are a couple of very nice breweries to relax and have a tasty brew. The train is very convenient to take to Perth, or you can also take a ferry there. The one thing that would be nice is to have some free walking tours of this area since there is so much history in the area.

Fun, functional, good choice.
We (a family of four) stayed in one of their rooms (double + bunks) with a bathroom one night. The room was comfortable, and the linens are quite fine. The communal kitchen was clean and reasonably stocked with pans and dishes. Bright communal area. Thus, as a place to stay, physically, it is very solid. What made the stay great were: 1. Wonderful staff. Cheery, helpful, informative. 2. Location. Right near the heart of Freemantle. Walking distance to the Rottnest Ferry. 3. Staying in the prison is fun. The only downsides are parking (free overnight. $10/day, though you can get a place a block away for $4.50.) and Wi-Fi (not available in the room unless you pay about $5/day. O.K. in the communal areas, but like most places we stayed in western Australia, rather slow). Overall, hard to beat.
