We paid $119 per night for a room. I was incredibly shocked when we checked in and found out you have to pay to store your luggage. This is the first place I've ever stayed in where you pay extra. Especially as the room is so expensive! The facilities are great. This is the only hostel we've stayed in where... More

Super modern for a hostel, much of it looks like a four star hotel. I really like the bar-like ground floor which is a nice place to hang out. The kitchen was nice and well stocked, although fridge space was tight. The rooms are good but air con would be nice. The location is fine, on the western edge of... More

I travel a lot and often stay at YHA properties around Australia. Melbourne Central has had a facelift since I was here last year and reception is now on street level. All of the action happens near reception with the TV room, kitchen and cafe area all there. There are lots of comfy seats and power points available for you... More

I'm not a huge fan of cities, but between gorgeous Melbourne and this hostel, I'll definitely be staying in the city bit longer than planned. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Fantastic hostel, situated in a very central location (hence the name, central). Social activities almost every week night. Trivia, ping pong, pub crawl. Rooms aren't huge, but they're... More

Just a quick overnight trip for me. Easy walking distance from Southern Cross Station which was great. Staff were friendly upon checking in. Room was a bit stuffy upon entering but once fan was switched on to full power, much more bearable. Shower was excellent though there seemed to be a shortage. Only 2 mens showers on Level 4, unless... More

Stayed here for a few nights in a double private room with balcony. The balcony overlooked the busy street below so very noisy, even when doors closed. Thought I would have used balcony to read/write postcards but two chairs on balcony were grubby so had to wipe them down first. And there wasn't a table on the balcony although indicated... More

We stayed for 1 night in a double room. The room was bright, comfy with ample space. The bathrooms were just a short way along the corridor, with good facilities, well kept and very clean. The hostel itself is just a short walk to the bus station and the rail station. We travelled by bus and the walk from the... More

Thank you for your review, we’re happy to hear you enjoyed our facilities and had a good experience! However it’s unfortunate to hear you could not make use of the heaters. All rooms come with a heater, power points and individual bed lights. If you ever have this problem again please don’t hesitate to report it to reception so they... More
