Paul, au1 night trip with friends
Very good 8,0
A comfortable night in the slammer
Friendly check-in, comfortable bed, i got a good night's sleep on a Friday night so any partying is obviously confined to the common areas. It definitely feels like a prison and a prison cell, and when i toured the main prison the next day i could see into the hostel garden. Clean bedding but when i had to strip the bed (as required) there were stains on the mattress cover and pillow. There also didn't seem to be many showers/toilets, only one for the cell block and only two/three in the main block/common area. I stayed for one night only so this wasn't a problem but might be an inconvenience for longer stays. Overall a great location and fun experience.

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.
