I stayed at YHA Melbourne Central for 1 night at the beginning of October, after a trip of the Great Ocean Road. It was clean with good facilities and well located. I was in a 4 bed dorm, which was quiet and comfortable with good security. Pricey, but then so is everywhere in Melbourne! Would definitely recommend, one of the... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in a 3 bed female dorm which consisted of bunk beds and a single which I was fortunate to have. Underneath the beds is a lockable storage space so again remember your padlock. My room was on the 1st floor room104 along from reception and the balcony area. Bathrooms on this level were clean...

This hostel is very clean and spacious. Rooms are a nice size and comfy beds. Toilets and showers are good and spotless too! The rooftop has amazing views of the city, perfect for afternoon drinking. Ina. Good location with nandos and dominos opposite! Only downside is that it isn't very sociable so I would recommend coming here with friends and... More

Stayed here for a quick night on the town while visiting my sister who lives on the outskirts of Melbourne. Was affordable and a good location. Rooms were a decent size and we were conveniently alone in a four bed dorm. Showers were good and clean. Staff were super friendly. Security is good.

I have stayed at Melbourne Central YHA twice now, the first time last year in November due to be stranded at the airport due to our bank being shut down and the YHA being the ONLY 24 hour check-in and accepting cash! We arrived at 2am to a friendly guy and was given our cards and off we went, we... More

Location, location! But it's more than the location, it's just a great place to stay. Sure, the bunks are a little squeaky but the rooms are comfortable and clean. The bathrooms are great (private showers with change area). The kitchens although small are well equipped and are a great place to meet your fellow travelers. I tried another hostel and... More

It is one of the best YHA hostels I stayed in during my time travelling in Australia. The location is ideal for walking into the city and is also next door to the Bunyip tours office which was useful on several occasions.The staff were always very friendly and helpful and the rooms, kitchen and bathrooms were very clean. However, the... More
