Thank you for your review Jo

I stayed here for one night in the 1 bed apartment. The apartment was spotless and newly decorated and with new carpets. There is only a fridge and microwave, no kettle or toaster, but this is stated in the description. The overall feel of the place is lovely with high ceilings, beautiful staircase and many original features. It is very central for shops and bars. It is a budget hotel and a backpackers. So if you are not comfortable with that its not for you. The lady on reception was amazing very helpful and efficient, she couldn't do enough for me. Very secure even for an mature single traveller with a coded entrance at night. I would definitely stay again.

Clean and stylish

Pros: Cleanliness - it was spotless.
Cons: Nothing - for a hostel its amazing
Location: great central Perth location, close to train station, city centre and Northbridge.
Cheap and cheerful - excellent to come home to after a night on the town.

Not a hotel

Only good for backpackers. Room was no good as it was too close to the train station. Stairs need work. The building history has always been a youth hostel not a hotel. The only good thing was it was close to the train station. Local takeaway need more of a choice. Hard for taxi drivers to find the place..

Lovely old hotel in great location, lacking A/C

We had a private room with ensuite facing towards the corner of Wellington and Barrack streets. Lovely old building with very clean, tidy, renovated room and bathroom. The large shared space downstairs was also very pleasant and well kept. Laundry was difficult to find, an extra sign or two would help. The location was perfect as we were in Perth to visit the Art Gallery of WA, just a few minutes' walk, and found it was very close to shops, cafes and restaurants. Staff were lovely and helpful. Our biggest concern was the lack of air conditioning; our room had a ceiling fan, pedestal fan and two windows but even then the 30 degree outdoor temperature made the room stifling to be in during the day and overnight. Street noise was considerable, especially as we had windows open and were so close to the train line, but manageable. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend, although perhaps in cooler months of the year.

Dear Effie. Thank-you for your review and well rounded feedback. Unfortunately due to the age of the building we cannot provide air-condition even though I wish we could. Laundry room signage has been improved. We are glad you enjoyed your stay overall. Regards
