We planned for a night and stayed 3 weeks. We had a 4 bed mixed dorm. The whole hostel is clean and tidy, bathrooms are cleaned daily, and reception is 24 hour. Bar manager Dave and his staff made the stay for us, we were given free welcome drinks on arrival. They always made time to stop between serving, speak... More

I really like it here because it does not seem like a normal Hostel it seems like a cheap Hotel! Easy, Clean, nice and quiet and a wonderful bar! The rooms are not too big and it is definitely affordable!

Its a nice hostel. Its clean. Staff is friendly and organizing funny events at some evenings. Regular price per evening, free breakfast. A bit far from the center of Melbourne but its easy to get there by tram.

I'm a backpacker and I visited melbourne whilst travelling and this hostel came highly recommended by an old friend. Personally I thought it was lovely. I came back for a second time just for the atmosphere and helpful staff. You get what you pay for here...clean room, clean sheets warm showers and comfort. I am in no way high maintenance... More

We stayed 2 nights at this hostel. I'll start with the 2 (bad) points. The location is a bit far from the cbd, but anyway there's the public's transports... There's the motorway next to the hostel and it's a bit noisy, but ok. Otherwise the rooms and the bedrooms are quite clean. The staff is very professional. Good quality /... More

Clean rooms and chill out areas, nice big kitchen with cleaners. Rooms are nice with comfy beds, bar attached to the side of the hostel with good drink prices. Great place to meet people and of course free breakfast! Would definitely reccomend anyone to stay here.

Everything was set up correctly and the staff is very responsive! I really enjoyed the way the entire atmosphere of the lobby from the lighting to the background music. Very friendly, clean, exciting vibes.

I enjoyed my time at Urban central very much they were beyond accommodating and very friendly towards tourists. The rooms were neat and comfortable. They had plenty of options for tourists and suggested great places to visit.

A good quality backpackers hotel/hostel. Stayed in a 4 bed room (en suite bathroom) and was very pleasantly surprised by my fellow roomies and the fact that they were so quiet. Think the hostel does a good job of matching guests up. The room was a little dirty but can be expected based on the foot traffic in and out... More

I came around 1 in the morning.. The security guy told me I was booked under a different price and told me to bring the email where the price was listed.. I saw him and couldn't be bothered to argue. The next morning I bought some internet and I realized that I was charged twice. Luckily, the staff this time... More
