Very nice and modern hostel with good facilities. It does get very noisey at night if your over the busy streets to make sure to take your ear plugs. The hostel is kept very clean. It's a very big hostel so the atmosphere isn't the best it could be due to no arranged drinking nights or anything however they do... More

It was supposed to be a 3-star, but i give it a 4 bcoz the staff i dealt with was very helpful. We booked a 2-private room under my buddy's name, but somehow they out of nowhere put my name. We couldn't find the booking in the system, but they did try their best to arrange another 4-beds shared room... More

We were very happy staying there, the security was good. The room & bathroom were clean, the linen was fresh & the staff were polite & friendly. We usually stay in hotels so it was quite different for us. We would stay there again.

A great backpackers. Courteous and helpful staff (particularly Michael, the human rights lawyer)! Location is fantastic. Beds and linen are clean, fresh and seemed almost new! Free breakfast pancakes were great. Really don't have a bad word about staying here! Would recommend.

Close to train station, trams, buses. The hostel is big, a lot of people are staying there. No free wifi. I stayed in a 4 beds female dorm, its was big enough, with lockers, you can put your luggages under the bed to have more space. Showers and toilets are not very clean, but ive seen worse.

This is quite possibly the worst hostel I've stayed at in all of Australia. Unfortunately it is also one of the cheapest in Melbourne, so I found myself staying here for over a month while i found a job and sorted myself out. This hostel has the rudest staff I have ever encountered, with the exception of one guy behind... More

One of the best affordable backpackers place with free breakfast in melbourne city, however have to pay for wifi. Location wise, it is right in front of the tram station and Coles supermarket is right across the road and their opening hours is insane at 6am to mid night! The bunk bed rooms that I stayed in was very basic,... More

Hubby and I stayed here the night after seeing the Foo Fighters. I was a little worried after reading others reviews, as I'm quite fussy with cleanliness etc. But what a great surprise! We had a double room. Obviously no bells and whistles, as per up market hotels, but it was just what we required. Bathrooms were good sized, and... More

Stayed for 1 week and me and my friend really enjoyed our time here. We had a bunk bed over in the corner so had lots of our own space to do our own thing! 16 dorm was a little too much at times met some lovely people but also some annoying people who would put the light on at... More
