I didn't find the staff all that friendly while checking in so I'd probably try somewhere new if I were to stay in a hostel in Melbourne again. But it wasn't bad. Big spacious rooms, comfy beds, really really clean bathroom. Like probably the cleanest I've seen while travelling. I may have just caught someone on an off day, so... More

I stayed for 2 nights in July and thought the hostel was as good as hostels get. I just wish the room was about $20 less for a small double room with no features like wifi, phone, tv. You can more facilities for a lower price elsewhere. But the hostel is good and I would recommend it. It's a 20-30... More

I stayed for one night. Everything you could want from a hostel. Very clean. Good facilities. Helpful staff. The kitchen is well sized, the rooms are basic but exactly what one should expect - They have 1 power socket per bed, which all I would ask for in a hostel. The location is fantastic, very close to the main train... More

The rooms were rather basic (we booked a private) but the communal areas we clean with plenty of activities and things to do. The bathrooms were clean and in good condition. We didn't use the communal kitchen so cannot comment. The staff did a wonderful job of organising events and making sure guests had plenty to do - I can... More

I love this place. Great shared facilities, friendly staff and an awesome location. I do have an issue with there being no shelves for the top bunks (where should we put our stuff?) and terribly placed power points in the rooms. Also, swipe card access to the bathrooms would be great to stop those folks who "accidentally" enter the wrong... More

Electronic Swipe card system to use lift (elevator), each floor and to enter room makes for a feeling of security. Stayed 3 nights in a private room. The shared bathrooms are a high standard, modern and clean. Shower head would not stay horizontal but a minor complaint. Community kitchen excellent. Nice rooftop area. Free wifi in lounge area.

Great place. Very friendly knowledgable staff. Clean and well set up. Plenty of activities provided. Centrally located. All in all a great place to stay and meet new people. Night manager a grumpy beep.....but that seems to be the same anywhere.

I stayed here for 3 nights in a 4-share. Room was spacious, so some shelves or drawers could be placed in. No shelves = mess on the floor! Besides, the window frames and ceilings were covered in centimetres of dirt. Bathrooms are nice and clean, very modern. Good cleaning service. Kitchen is very spacious, quite clean. Very trendy-looking lounge area.... More

stayed there for 3 nights in a private room. Staff are very helpful and friendly, the beds are more or less comfortable. The hostel is clean. Nice lounge with very good internet downstairs and hostel facilities are very good and has a funky, quirky vibe. Tram stop right out the front and about a 4 minute walk to Southern Cross... More
