Ho tel Hell (No Riffraff)

Great guest poster Mazarina has another good one for you all. This is another good one for the recording history side of TWOP also, as I am sure this building won’t last too much longer. Mazarina says…

The worst of Perth isn’t always at eye level – sometimes you need to look up. Like at the corner of Milligan and Murray Streets. The owners of this establishment were clearly quite keen to keep backpackers at bay, hence the cunning plan to paint out the original ‘s’ in the sign. So instead of reading ‘hostel milligan’, it now says ‘ho tel milligan’. I’m a little baffled though, I’m not sure what the ho is supposed to tel milligan.

It’s a HOSTEL guys. Deal with it. (Gives you a little bit of a kerning problem too.)

    Perhaps a more fitting name change would have been Hostile Milligan.

    I live across the road from hostel/hotel Milligan and can tell you that it is patronised almost exclusively by xxxxxx, lunatics and xxxxxxxxxx. I have never seen a backpacker or ‘normal’ guest go in or out. I have, however, heard old men screaming at each and breaking stuff, seen old men leaning out the window in peak hour and screaming at passersby and had one other old geezer give me the finger because I had the audacity to play music at the ungodly hour of 4pm.
    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxx xxxxxxxxx xxxx that is so xxxxxxx that even if it were located in the Kewdale industrial area the local tradies would be heard to remark “Man, xxx xxxxxxxxx”.


  2. Adam says:

    Whoa. That is some serious censorship.
    Just replace every xxxx with the word ‘xylophone’ and it will make perfect sense.

    So it is still there. So much for that prediction.

    Have previous comments all evaporated, or did this posting sit in limbo for over 40 months?

    – old men – are just lads who survived thier youth..
    maybe they seem like boring old farts, but maybe thats how they survived thus far..

    Is it true, that Milligans has SINGLE ROOMS, for not much more than Backpacker Dorms which have up to Ten people sleeping in each room??

    Come back Valerie. All is forgiven.


  10. small, standard, large......or share with 9 others says:

    no, that was only the small rooms – the standard rooms are slightly more

    That place is still there,
    That 20 year old paint job is still there. Whats with this place –
    and the guy who started this blog or whatever got committed…
    The chap that was yelling back to Adam from Milligans was taken away
    by the police and never seen again..
    Perth has changed so much over the last few years – for the better we think..

      Good try Mazarina,
      You’ve failed again.

      But if you ever try again and succeed,
      think you’ve got away with it-
      the building will be rebuilt with concrete floors but will be expensive..
