Rainbow Lodge Perth Reviews
Frankenstien's Layer Dec 18, 2012
I've stayed in some poor hostels but this one was by far the worst. It was way overpriced for what it included.
They advertise free breakfast, free wi-fi, $15 per night, and roller blades (the last one made me laugh).
I got a double room and it was a mess, clean enough but the construction of this hostel was messy. I stayed for the month of December and it was 40 degrees outside (very hot) but there was no air conditioning in the whole hostel. I can live without those things but it just didn't live up to what it advertised "breakfast" was a loaf of bread and some jam. The free wi-fi was not really free. I wasn't allowed to access it on my netbook so you had to find a time when there was a free computer (there was only 2) In general it was an ill managed hostel. One day I found the receptionist drunk/passed out on the driveway when he was supposed to be working.
I don't want to be a complainer....but I thought I should warn backpackers of the Rainbow Lodge. Backpackers get by with less (it's part of the fun) I didn't really mind but I'm sure there are hostels with better value.
I will say this, I did enjoy my time because I met some wonderful people during my stay. The people who stayed there were like a family and it was more about the comradery than the actual hostel. There are also some beautiful beaches near by and the hostel is fine if you just ned a place to sleep...don't expect anything else.
