Still in Perth. Just biding my time here and looking around for a ride up north. Would really like to see the countryside and the best way is by car. I'll stay a few more days and if I don't find anyone to share a ride with then I'm just gonna take a flight...

Ok, so last full day staying at the One World Backpackers. Since it was a really nice day we went to the Cottesloe-beach. It was a really nice beach, but the waters were frickin' cold! Still I managed to go for a quick (really quick) swim and then a power nap on my towel. A fifteen munite trainride back to central Perth and some world cup football ended the day!

I really enjoy my time to this hostel. Seriously, the cleanest and friendlyest hostel so far. Staff is so nice and so helpful. I was not sure if i would check-out on sunday or on wednesday, and because it's Easter time, it is fully book everywhere. So, Steve, one of the staff member, told me i could prebook without paying and let him know the morning of my check-out if i wanted to leave or not. Usually, you have to give 48hours notice otherwise you get charge 50% of the night or depends of hostels. But Steve was very kind and he made me a wonderful Latte with the expresso machine. 2$ only! Then, he gave me the room key and said i could unpack first and comeback later to do the check-in. Perfect!
As i didn't have the 20$ cash only deposit, he said it was okay and i could just comeback later with it. I went outside and everyone was so friendly, there was a lot of germans and they invited me to kings park with them, That was nice of them. The rooms are basic hostel room with a Fan, mine had 6 beds and the roof is quite high so we feel like having more space. Breakfast is included. In the reception, there is a wall of advertisement but everything is seperate in a portfolio. One for jobs, one for lifts, one for trips etc.
It is a pretty quiet Hostel. I think its a workers hostel cause the kitchen closes at 9pm during the week and 11pm during the weekend, so it could be boring sometimes.
I reccommend it anyways, just for the ambiance. You can feel like home here, cause it's in a house and it is a very small backpackers !
