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.

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

This hostel is right on Flinders Street and thus very close to the CBD. It looks rustic and has no nearby parking, but for backpackers - travelling by public transport - it is quite good. The kitchens are spotless and there is a bit of a crowded dining table in tne kitchen. No matter, but the hostel is quite central,... More
