Because the hostel is currently being renovated, my friend and I had problems finding the reception, but they probably solved that by now. The service was very nice! The beds in our room weren't the best, but definitely okay for one night. The lockers under the beds were very practical for storing our backpacks during the night. The bathroom (shared... More

Accomodation can be very expensive in Melbourne, specially if you want some comfort. My husband and I chose a private room in this YHA because we love to see all the activities offered by hostels, with a bit of privacy. Location was perfect, we were able to do everything on foot. The room was also good. Not noisy - just... More

My friends and I (total 3 girls), shared a room. This hostel was SO comfortable and SO clean. It was well-located within the city. It was no problem getting from the airport to this hostel. Just hop onto the sky bus (buy return, it's cheaper), and it'll drop you off at southern cross station. From there, it's a 10 minutes... More

We stayed for two nights in October in a private room which was clean and comfortable, all linen and towels included. We didn't use the communal area or kitchen during our stay but it looked clean and well stocked. The communal bathrooms and showers were excellent quality and cleanliness. The location near Southern Cross station and in Flinders Street was... More

This was my final hostel while backpacking and the best. It is very well located and extremely clean. The facilities are very modern and I never had any queues or waiting times. I booked a 4 bed mixed share. The bed was super comfy with nice duvet/pillow and the room heater worked amazing!

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
