The staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful but the room was so noisy due to traffic and city noise. When I shut the window, it made no difference whatsoever and I even struggled to sleep with ear plugs in. Usually these two things combined - even in the middle of a city does the job. The beds were comfortable,... More

Stayed for 2 very jetlagged nights. Perfectly central easy to get to from airport and right in free tram zone close to most things you would want to see/do in Melbourne. Good social area downstairs and on roof although a bit cold to use when I was there.

This isn't the first time I've stayed at a YHA, and based on this time it won't be the last. Clean rooms and halls, plenty of showers so there's no waiting and secure entry to make you feel safe. Located near the river, it's a short walk from Sealife, the convention centre or the CBD. There's plenty of nearby restaurants... More

I stayed for 5 nights during a very busy weekend late February. It is a very well kept hostel. Facilities are kept tidy and clean, rooftop is a good place to relax while having dinner. Rooms are spacious, and bonus having proper lockers! Wifi is really good compared to what I've previously experienced at other hostels. And somewhat reasonably priced... More

One of the better hostels in Australia. Free breakfast and free noodles, pasta and rice in the evening. Also free tea and coffe. A perfect place for backpackers then. We stayed there to times. The first time the hostel was fully booked and we stayed in a room without windows. Just ask for it, because we didn't feel pleasant in... More

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
