A short piece to Cooee. Cooee is a hostel in Australia.
Australian hostels are so wonderful.
The people bleed out friendliness and relaxation.
Cooee was my favorite hostel in Melbourne.
The facility was beautiful and conveniently setup.
The color scheme was calm and soothing.
Music played softly in the background.
Free use of cups, plates, forks, spoons and knives.

The residents of Cooee were the opposite of the environment.
They were either incredibly standoffish, and uninterested or far too interested in you.
A large group of them found my room several late nights in a row.
Banging on the door, inviting me into their lives.
Some of the residence would try to get incredibly interested in your life.
Some would try to steal away your lover.
A French man will hang around you with his ever unimpressed persona and make you want cut your own throat.
