About JJ’s Backpackers Northbridge

At JJ’s Backpackers Northbridge we aim to provide a clean and safe environment whilst creating a meeting place for like-minded travellers in a fun and chilled atmosphere.

We hope that our love of travel and variety of experiences have helped create a place where you can make new friends and feel comfortable for however long you stay with us.

We are located in the heart of Northbridge, Perth’s main entertainment district with its uncountable bars, clubs, restaurants, museums and art galleries such as the Art Gallery of WA and the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.


Based right inside the Perth Free Transit Zone, you can catch the Blue CAT on our front door. We are only a 10 minute walk to Perth railway station and bus port. We are on the doorstep of Perth’s CBD where you can find endless shops and malls and a stone’s throw from central attractions such as Elizabeth Quay and King’s Park Botanical Garden.

We offer reasonable sized rooms all with bunk beds. We provide bed linen. All rooms have centrally controlled air conditioning. Each has a skylight and is well ventilated, but due to building design the rooms do not have windows. We have a large kitchen with walk in fridge. Washing machines and dryers are available.

In addition to this we also offer free wifi, playstation, Wii, free pool table, free Netflix. We have free drinks vouchers for several of the best bars and clubs in town.

At JJ’s we like variety, check out our black board at reception for different social events.

If you have any questions or suggestions while you are staying with us, please come and find any of our friendly team. We love hearing new ideas and with your help we can make JJ’s the best backpackers in Perth!
