I stayed here for 3 nights in a 4-share. Room was spacious, so some shelves or drawers could be placed in. No shelves = mess on the floor! Besides, the window frames and ceilings were covered in centimetres of dirt. Bathrooms are nice and clean, very modern. Good cleaning service. Kitchen is very spacious, quite clean. Very trendy-looking lounge area.... More

stayed there for 3 nights in a private room. Staff are very helpful and friendly, the beds are more or less comfortable. The hostel is clean. Nice lounge with very good internet downstairs and hostel facilities are very good and has a funky, quirky vibe. Tram stop right out the front and about a 4 minute walk to Southern Cross... More

I stayed for 5 nights in this hostel and it was a good place to stay. Location is great, only 5min from southern cross and all the other sites in the city are also close by(10-15min walk max.). The hostel is clean. Nice lounge with very good internet downstairs. Friendly staff as well! So, overall there was a good vibe... More

I stayed there for about 3 nights and apart from the noise from streets, everything was fine. Staff is very helpful and friendly, the beds are more or less comfortable. However, the rooms are a little bit cold and noisy but a warm cover and ear plugs should handle this. Overall absolutely perfect for exploring fabulous Melbourne.

For that price the rooms are simply not worth it. 120 $ a night for an uncomfortable, dark, small, musty room. I just don't see the point. We booked the room because of our great experience at the YHA in Sydney but found a completely different style of hostel. The only place in six weeks of traveling where tea and... More

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
