I love this place. Great shared facilities, friendly staff and an awesome location. I do have an issue with there being no shelves for the top bunks (where should we put our stuff?) and terribly placed power points in the rooms. Also, swipe card access to the bathrooms would be great to stop those folks who "accidentally" enter the wrong... More

Electronic Swipe card system to use lift (elevator), each floor and to enter room makes for a feeling of security. Stayed 3 nights in a private room. The shared bathrooms are a high standard, modern and clean. Shower head would not stay horizontal but a minor complaint. Community kitchen excellent. Nice rooftop area. Free wifi in lounge area. Stayed mid... More

Great place. Very friendly knowledgable staff. Clean and well set up. Plenty of activities provided. Centrally located. All in all a great place to stay and meet new people. Night manager a grumpy beep.....but that seems to be the same anywhere.

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

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
