Stayed for 8 nights in an 8 share dorm while visiting Melbourne. Hostel has great facilities: big kitchen & dining area, big common room downstairs, good sized TV/reading room, another common room. My only criticisms are: (1) toilets can get quite grotty (2) walls and doors throughout hostel are grimy so could do with a sugar soap (3) shower cubicles... More

The bed was ok, not especially comfortable but not horrible either,however the shower badly needs updating, no... More

I stayed here several times in August 2014. The great thing for me at that time was the secure carpark. Period. It did have a very good kitchen and laundry facility too. Wifi was avalable and was the BEST available in the 8+ yha hostels I stayed at in OZ this year.

There was a desk in the room, and lots and lots of sockets. There even was a floorlenght mirror. The bathrooms were clean - I was... More

I frequently visit Melbourne usually stay with YHA. When I have a need to rent a Car I usually stay here because street parking is plentiful and have no issues with noise due to its location in a quiet residential suburb. Location is not right in the city centre but a tram stop is close by. Place always seems to... More

I stayed here three nights and I really liked this place! It's YHA quality, so it's clean and tidy and well organized. We had a car and we could park in the hostel parking lot ($7 per day, which is not too bad). The staff at reception was kind and helpful, the kitchen was big and well equipped and clean,... More

This was an acceptable YHA and okay place to rest my head. It is pretty far from the central part of Melbourne but still walkable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was okay. Bathroom was a bit dirty. The roof top view is really beautiful.

What a fantastic place. Checked in one evening on short notice and was superbly looked after by the yha crew. The Friendly staff Sophie and Doosh had exceptional customer service skills and the room was very comfortable, quiet and clean. Great attention to detail and service with a smile! Coming to melbourne? YHA is the place to stay

I ended up staying here for 5 months whilst working in Melbourne, the atmosphere is amazing and I made so many friends, including a lot of the staff too! The rooms are clean and comfy, the common areas, bathrooms and kitchen are cleaned often and are excellent. Every Tuesday (was Wednesday until recently) a travel auction is held by Safari... More
