Hostel G has officially opened its doors in Perth this month. Launched by GCP Hospitality, bookings are now available for guests to stay in the heart of Perth. In celebration of Hostel G’s opening, guests can enjoy a 50% discount on all room categories.
GCP Hospitality Chief Marketing Officer Marc Bichet said Hostel G is designed to be the first in a new generation of hostels, dubbed ‘hostel 2.0’, providing a hotel experience at an affordable price.
The brand new hostel concept is a far cry from the hostels, with an industry-first emphasis on community living and home comforts, including en-suite bathrooms in every room, linens and 24-hour security.
With 296 thoughtfully-designed guestrooms across two room types – shared and private, Hostel G is aimed at travellers looking for quality yet affordable accommodation. Designed by the award-winning Woods Bagot, guestrooms cater for a broad spectrum of travellers.
“Designed for the modern traveller seeking to explore cities like a local, Hostel G is set to be a new concept in lifestyle property, with a focus on conscious design, comfort and social connectivity.
“With people travelling more than ever before, we’re enabling social experiences for travellers and developing spaces where visitors to a city can gather, with a buzzing events calendar and community-led activities.”
As the official accommodation partner of Perth’s 2019 Fringe World Festival, Hostel G is opening its doors in Northbridge’s energetic cultural centre for visiting performers, artists and festival goers.
Unique to Hostel G is the ‘Glam Shared’ offering – four bunk-style rooms exclusively for female travellers, in response to the growing number of women travelling independently. The rooms feature complimentary extras such as hair dryers and bathroom amenities.
Hostel G’s offerings also cater to families with young children, or groups of friends and travelling couples who have previously had to book more than one room to accommodate everyone.
“Our ‘Greatest rooms” include queen or twin beds and bunk beds, designed to comfortably sleep four guests, and we anticipate this to be our most popular option for families.”
Groups of travellers seeking privacy can book out private guestrooms, with double, twin, four or six bed configurations available. Each room features an en-suite bathroom and offers a full suite of amenities such as complimentary Wi-Fi, A/C, dedicated reading lights and USB charging stations.
“Our aim is to rival the service standards and amenity offerings found in most hotels,” said Marc Bichet.
The games area features pool and foosball tables, board games and areas for group gatherings. In-house entertainment includes a screening room featuring theatre-style seating, which will play host to a wide selection of curated programming, including screening sessions by up-and-coming directors, concerts, film showings and creative speaker sessions.
A co-working space is open to both guests and non-guests, targeting entrepreneurs, start-ups, creatives and freelancers. Equipped as modern workspace, it will provide complimentary high-speed WiFi, stationery and a library with inspiring books and magazines. Hostel G team will organise activities with tour providers and local businesses, in addition to a bustling events calendar.
