Roons, bathroons and kitchen is really good. Breakfast is also really good. Close to the most beautiful part of Melbourne. The only thing that I was a bit surprised is that you cannot buy liquor from any other place but the hostel bar, but the bar is really good so it is not a problem. The staff was really helpful...

Urban central is by far the best backpacker I have ever stayed in. Clean, caters for everyone, friendly staff and all rooms are very modern and well maintained! Best value in Melbourne, by far! Come now, it's awesome!

The staff made every effort to make us feel welcome. 10 minutes from the city centre. Dorm rooms were set up slightly antisocially, but the bar makes up for it. An activity every night. Poker, beer pong and pool competitions just to name a few.

The pricing for the rooms are great. The 4 person dorms are excellent value that come with private bathroom which is a really convenient. All the staff are super friendly and the... More

Excellent hostel and great value for money. Stayed over 10 nights here and would definitely recommend it to others as a great place to stay - met lots of nice people and bar334 is awesome. Clean rooms, towels are provided, as is breakfast and free rice and pasta - always a bonus!

Have stayed in several hostels but this is by far the best! Clean, modern and good location. Free breakfast, use of towels, free rice and pasta- its a backpackers dream! Bar below is also great, good drink promos and friendly staff. Will be back if I'm in Melbourne again!
