I arrived late at night and left shortly after check-out the next day so didn't really have time to explore the place, but was impressed with how new everything seemed! I was in room 109 (female only) and the beds were incredibly soft, the bathrooms on the floor were spotless and also looked brand new. When I used the kitchen... More

The hostel is centrally located: 5 minutes walk to southern cross station and supermarket, and right in front of it there is a tram stop which a free city circle tram stops by regularly. If you want to use public transport to explore the city and its suburbs make sure you check out the reception to see if they have... More

This hostel has a great location, right in the central business district which is where most of the tourist sights are. It is a few blocks from the train station where the Red Bus drops you off from the airport. The rooms and bathroom and clean and the customer service is great.

Opted for a 4-bed female dorm room as I was mostly out during my time in Melbourne. Room was a bit tiny but I found a compartment under... More

This a really nice place with friendly staff and good facilities. It's location is perfect for travelers being walking distance from the train, tram and bus stations. The kitchen facilities is excellent. You can also do rooftop barbecues, while enjoying your beer.I'd recommend it to my friends.
