+ side: Hostel is located near the free tram zone, between CBD and Victoria market. The place is cheap, you can borrow towels and kitchenware. - side: Apart from the great location, the hostel in itself is dodgy, I doubt my sheets were clean, the room was small and uncomfortable. The common areas need a good clean from management. The... More

The place was full of druggies (crack from what Ive overhead), I came across a dirty used syringe, the kitchen was disgusting. Staff were just about civil.If i had to sleep... More

Please heed my advice and avoid this place at all costs. We got stung $480 to stay in this dump for four nights one weekend and I was horrified as soon as I opened the door. The sheets were filthy, the room smelt bad and there were stains all up the walls. The sheets were so dirty we went straight... More

Avoid at all costs!! Close to Queen Victoria Markets. Serviced well by trams. Gets shady at night. No elevators, so be prepared to climb 3 floors of stairs with heavy luggage. Booked a twin room. Room came with 1 bunk, a fan, and a fridge. Room was more like a 4x4 cell. No windows and very hot. Toilets on the... More

The rooms are okay compared to the filthy kitchen. Fryers etc. are unclean and birds can fly into the room. The tables are gross, too. No sheets provided in the rooms and they are also filthy. Toilets are okay but could be better. Shower was okay but the atmosphere in general was horrible. Location is good if you want to... More

One of the cheapest places to stay in Melbourne CBD during the tennis season, so can't really complain too much about the quality of my stay. Very popular with backpackers and university students, so at midnight the place is still loud with a lot of commotion, particularly the reception and dining rooms. Sleep quality was fine, room facilities were okay... More
