New budget accommodation option in Perth

International hotel group GCP Hospitality is to open its first Australian property, Hostel G, in Perth in January.

Bookings will be available from January 4 with 50% discounts.

The new hostel concept puts an industry-first emphasis on community living and home comforts, including en-suite bathrooms in every room, linens and 24-hour security.

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.

"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," says the pre-opening blurb.

Hostel G is located in the Perth arts quarter of Northbridge and is the official accommodation partner of Perth’s 2019 Fringe World Festival.

The 296 guest rooms are shared across two room types – shared and private with Glam Shared offering four bunk-style rooms exclusively for female travellers.

The rooms feature unhostel-like complimentary extras such as hair dryers and bathroom amenities.

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 free wifi, air-conditioning, reading lights and USB charging stations.

Bichet said a major focus of the hostel was its communal spaces, including a games room, screening
room and co-working space.

“Our aim is to rival the service standards and amenity offerings found in most hotels,” he said.

GCP Hospitality runs 39 properties worldwide and has regional offices in Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong, Perth, San Francisco, Singapore and Yangon.
