Although the hostel is at the far end of Northbridge it is worth staying here.
We were greeted on arrival by friendly staff who told us where the supermarkets were and about the bar that they have at the hostel, they also ahve happy hours and there is a pool table area where you can drink late in to the night and not disturb any guests.
Our room wasnt ready as we arrived very early so we stayed in the lounge area which is very large with lots of comfy seats and a huge TV, everyone is friendly and it has a lovely atmosphere.
The Kitchen was also a very decent size, they do charge you a $3 deposit to use the crockery which you get back when you hand it in, this is a good idea as you can always find a plate and know it will be clean. They also offer a free breakfast which is great.
The Wifi was very cheap and when we had problems with ours not working one night the receptionist rang global gossip and gave as an extra 24 hours for free.
I rented a double room which was lovely with a fridge, sink and storage space, there is also a nice courtyard, beware this is where alot of smokers go,guests have to leave the area at 10pm so as not to disturb guests and this was adhered to the whole time we were there which was nearly a week.
The hotel was extremely clean and there was always someone cleaning
All the staff were so friendly they even rembered your name and if I hadnt found a permenant place to live in Perth then I would have definately stayed longer.
