About Us

Located in the famed Northbridge district, the Britannia on William is nestled in the heart of Perth along the corner of Francis and William Street. It began its early days as a hotel but has since reinvented itself and opened its doors as a social backpacker hostel to reflect the burgeoning global city that it lives in.

Britannia on William offers dorm-style and private bedrooms with secured lockers suited for all types of international backpackers. We strive to make Britannia on William the best affordable backpackers hostel in Perth.

Our commitment to our guests starts with ensuring our facilities are clean and up to date in order to make your stay comfortable and memorable. But it’s more than just a hostel. It’s a social space to connect and share your experience.

Our staff understands backpackers because they are backpackers too.

Our large courtyard is a welcoming space to enjoy the company of other travellers from all over; each with a unique story yet connected by the unbounded fervour to explore new frontiers. Equipped with a kitchen, a TV room, a library, and laundry facilities, travellers have peace of mind.

Connect with the outside world through our free Wi-Fi and feel at home.

Our friendly staff is at reception 24 hours a day, ready to help with any enquiries. Our hostel also provides guests with secure entry after midnight.

The Britannia is centrally located minutes away from the gateway hub of Perth Station and its proximity to Northbridge means it’s within walking distance to a plethora of cafes, bars, restaurants, clubs, grocery stores.
