Great hostel, comfortable and clean. Staff are lovely and friendly. New bar/Cafe is good too. Road could be noisy but you get used to it, it's a nice location not too far from Brunswick St which has great bars and shops. Lockers and luggage storage available and and staff always happy to help. Extended my stay twice and would stay... More

Good location about 20 minutes walk from Melbourne centre. Unfortunately no air conditioning in the dorm room, which - as Melbourne was in the middle of a heatwave - was less than ideal. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Good prices, and definitely worth a stay.

Nice looking hostel, rooms are decent, facilities are good and the location is great. This was sold to us as a lively hostel, but when we were there on the weekend it was really quiet, and it seemed 90% of the people staying here were long term German residents that are working in Melbourne.

Very nice hostel. Well located. Short walk to the heart of Melbourne. Convenient shuttle services to the airport. The rooms were good. Large, bright, airy dorms. LOTS of clean, hot showers and toilets. A wide mix of interesting, friendly guests. Nothing special, but could not find a thing wrong. Would stay here again.

If you're looking for a backpackers which is out of the hub of the city, this is the one. By Melbourne standards this hostel is pretty reasonable in price and has more quirks than other backpackers in the city which often are quite sterile. There are quirky nooks inside where you can chill out and read or a big lounge... More

I wasn't expecting a lot from this hostel but I was very impressed. The room was clean, as were the bathrooms and linen. The reception staff were super friendly and always made a point to say good morning or hello. Other guests were friendly too but they all seemed to be long term guests and made a lot of noise...

I came here after staying at another hostel in Melbourne, and I preferred the previous place. This hostel has good facilities however. Nice places to sit around and relax with a good book or watch dvds on a nice TV. The dorm rooms were fine, no issues there. Kitchen good size and nice space to eat your food. Don't leave... More

The first reason I picked this Hostel to stay during my trip is all about Location. The hostel is in the mid of city, you can either walk to Queen Victoria Market , Carlton Gardens or Fitzroy Gardens. The room rate is quite reasonable compare to the room and facilities, plus the service is really great. Staffs are very friendly... More

The building itself is beautiful! Just inside it could use a bit of updating/renovation. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The showers and toilets are perfectly clean, as is the kitchen. The location is very good, it's a nice neigbourhood and you can walk to the center (about 20 minutes). There were not many common rooms, and the ones... More
