My prefix can make you quite hungry, 2 ways.
My suffix is where you might sleep.
My infix a "perfect," a giver of praise -
Together, your price can be steep.

What am I?

Hint:

You may not have experienced the meaning of first line, depending on your U.S. state of origin

Hint 2:

The "price" you pay will not be in money - it will be incurred if you come across something with this adjective

    $\begingroup$ Doesn't the hint suggest that the puzzle should be tagged knowledge as well? $\endgroup$ – ibrahim mahrir Aug 17 '18 at 14:32

  • $\begingroup$ Well, everyone should know it - it's a common word. I just wanted to let people know that the first word may mean something a bit different to certain people based on prior experience $\endgroup$ – elarr Aug 17 '18 at 14:52

Are you

Potent

My prefix can make you quite hungry, 2 ways.

Pot(cannabis) can make you hungry and the other one is cooking pot.

My suffix is where you might sleep.

A tent

My infix a "perfect," a giver of praise

A perfect ten!

Together, your price can be steep. + Hint 2

If you consume or use something potent you either receive a very great effect or the worst effect of it. Either way, it's very strong.

Hint 1

Depending on the us states, they might call cannabis differently(?). Also @El-guest mention that it's illegal to use cannabis in most of the US states, but legal in some (Cali or Alaska for example)

Are you

Pain?

My prefix can make you quite hungry, 2 ways.

P, as in peas, are food. Pai also sounds like pie.

My suffix is where you might sleep.

In, or inn.

My infix a "perfect," a giver of praise -

An AI praises you in video games. It's also designed to perfectly imitate humans.

Together, your price will be steep.

Pain is indeed the price.

Hint 1:

Not sure at all why there'd be trouble understanding. Maybe how you pronounce things?

Hint 2:

The price paid is blood, sweat, and tears, which constitutes pain.
