I usually stay in the cheap accommodation in Northbridge when in Perth. But after staying at a higher end hostel in Melbourne on my last holiday, I really could not bring myself to do that this time, cheap places in Perth are generally gross.
Finding the hostel was a little tricky as I did not record the address and thought that it would be easy as to find through signage, my fault there.
The staff were friendly, efficient, awesome, they work really hard to make sure everything is good and to keep things clean.
Curry night was great, and the bakery food too, food always helps bring people together, I chose the right day.
The people staying were from all around the place, very nice and considerate, drank responsibly, were keen for a chat , to play a game of pool, or to party in the city.
+ The character is really groovy with feature walls and large posters.
+ I liked the size of the hostel, noncommercial and personal.
+ The room was a good size, clean with adequate ventilation and heating.
If I factor into the price the extra I'd spend staying somewhere that didn't have some food, laundry, and Internet included then the price to stay is well worth paying.
