Excellent little hostel with a perfect location, tram/train stops around the corner, lots of bars and restaurants in within 2 mins walk. Cool atmosphere with all the backpackers. Staying in a private room which is great. Extended the stay it's that good.

After visiting five other hostels in Melbourne, I decided to stay here for the next 1,5 months, like most of the backpackers here. Location is... More

I have some good experiences to write here and a suggestion for change. I had travelled with my family. When we arrived at back of chapel (it was late night), we were greeted by many people at the door as if they were all expecting our arrival, we thought that it must be the staff at the backpackers.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for a month whilst we worked in Melbourne and were so sad to leave. The people you meet are so friendly and chilled and the hostel itself is lovely. Really well managed, brilliant free breakfast and great location! Perfect place to explore chapel street. Definitely the best place to stay in melbourne!
