We where staying at Flinders for 4 nights. The hostel is run down. Elevators are slow. Hallways etc. where dirty. Rooms where OK. But the WORST - we only had cold water in the showers for 4 days. Staff did not really care about that tough. Would not recommend this place.

Likes: Great location!!! I love the free breakfast everyday. (Cereals, cook your own pancake, toasts and jam, coffee and tea). The hostel was clean. Dislikes: rooms are small. (Stayed in a 3bed and 4bed dorm). It can get noisy-- both noise from outside (tram, cars etc) and inside the hostel (loud guests and banging doors) you'll definitely need earplugs. Staff... More

We stayed for three nights and we fidnt have a great experience. Despite the excellent location and friendly staff at front desk, it was a pig sty. The bedroom and bathroom wasnt clean. It needed a good bleaching and definate sweeping. The second lift was broken do you had to allow 10mins to take the lift. The noise was incredibly... More

Overall I have had positive experiences at Flinders Station Backpackers, the staff was very helpful and nice, the place had a good vibe. The only thing was the facilities were not really clean and bathrooms were a bit awkward. Not much space, no places to put your stuff and such..

it's clearly one of the cheapest place to stay in Melbourne and really well-located. the breakfast is included (you prepare it but there's choice). people are lovely, efficient and helpful but: - room are not sound proof so when people come back at 5am, drunk and noisy, you can forget to sleep. you also can listen everything happens in the...

I stayed in the 3 bedroom dorm for a few days and it was good. The beds are comfortable and they have a full length mirror in the dorm- which is definitely a plus. Only wished that there was a heater in the dorm as it was freeeeezing during that time. But we requested for extra blankets and it was... More

Only stayed here for 1 night but would definitely stay again. The guy on reception was very kind when I arrived at midnight and freezing cold! He checked me in quickly and offered extra blankets before I even asked. I stayed in a 3 bed female dormitory which was 2 bunk beds with a mattress taken off one off the... More

Hostel was pretty average. It was a massive hostel, luckily we had a private room which was ok but I would not fancy staying in a dorm here. Kitchen was too busy and messy, no where to store food. Good location though.

One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Free breakfast is really good offering cereal, toast, even make your own pancakes with various toppings. All the hostel was very clean including the bathrooms which were also good for a hostel. Lots of showers and always hot water. Most rooms are only 3 beds which I think makes the price even... More
