    Hi Vicky,
    You could also try…Australia&city=Perth

    Are you looking at staying right in the city or closer to the ocean? If so Praha is right, Cottesloe is a good place to base yourself. The beachs are nice and sheltered and also it is close to public transport.
    Any questions feel free email me

    I’m from the States but I’ve been working in Perth for 4 months now. I concur that it is the most expensive place! Plan on spending quite a bit on food and alcohol.
    Most of the hostels in the City are within a 10 minute walk of the Perth train and bus stations (which are basically connected to each other). It’s roughly a 20 minute train ride out to Cottesloe beach from the City.

    Thank you for all your replies.

    Basically I was meant to be staying with a friend and now she has let me down, so I am having to find a hostel. As I am on my own, I would like to stay somewhere, where I can meet people, is safe and clean. Are any of you in Perth around this time? I don’t even know where to start, I land on Jan 2nd at 7am, so dont really want to be looking for a place to rest my head then.

    Thank you again for all your help!

    Also things to do in Perth – I am in Perth for four days, is there anything I shouldnt miss doing???

    xx Vicky

    Hello Praha,

    Thank you for your advice as I have since booked this hostel.

    Do you live in Perth?
