My son and I needed a place, affordable, just to sleep as we were in perth for a young friend funerals. Criterion was perfectly located and, for the cheapest price, we had all that we needed. It is an old building but we did not mind; a few things needed fixing, the shower head, the uncovered aircon (but these things worked regardless). The staff was pleasant and helpful too. We parked our hired car at the city firebrigade car park at a walking distance, for $8 from 6pm to 6am, so it was good for us.

Rooms are very basic. Kind of dingy but location and price were good.

It's an old building with a lot of character, well worn in spots. Room was ok with all the basics and the bathroom was renovated. Fantastic location right in the city with a small IGA grocery shop and liquor store right next door. Very close to all public transport - bus and trains. Great value for money. I really enjoyed my stay.
