Bambu came highly recommended from a couple of friends here on TB. It definitely was not bad and was relatively cheap by Western Australian standards.

The hostel has a good kitchen with plenty of fridges and a large freezer(which is generally a rarity with hostels I find). I never noticed or heard of anyone stealing food here other than milk for the odd cup of tea.

One issue with the kitchen is how it did not have enough cutlery and you had to go to reception to get the pots and return them too. It kind of felt like I was being treated like a juvenille....I would later realise that a lot of backpackers out this end of the world are a disgrace and refuse to wash up after themselves as if mammy was expected to clean up after them as always.

The hostel had a good party vibe and had a nice lounge area to accomodate some quality drink sessions. The pool table was a plus too.

They put out free food in the mornings also which was a plus.

Being in Northbridge, you are fairly central to everything, especially bars. In fact the bar next door would sometimes be excessively loud if you were trying to catch an early night.

I would have no problem staying here again and that's not just because the manager's name was Derek too!

It was but if you are really worried about the noise you could stay around the corner Brittannia on Williams, depends what sort of atnosphere you are looking for to be honest.

Great for non-expensive stay, its right in the middle of the great night-life district Northbridge in Perth, WA! Not good if you're a light sleeper though. It's next door to The Shed (which also rocks)

Also the hostel is decked out with an Asian/Indonesian theme that's sorta random and sorta cool haha

5 minute walk from the city centre and major bus/train station
