Large hostel with facilities big enough to suit the amount of people staying. Kitchen always cleaned well and always plenty of tables and chairs. Clean sheets given on arrival and beds probably the comfiest of any hostel I have stayed in so far (proper mattress not a sponge camper type thing) rooms are cleaned every day and bathrooms very big...

I've lived here for 1 month and had a great time here but my rating is between "Avarage" and "Very Good"! I loved the big kitchen and communal area open 24h to hang out with other backpackers. MIB is located in the CBD and close to everything you need! ... Travel Agencies, Victoria Market, Post, ALDI and Car Rentals!

We arrived quite early, and allowed to left our bags at the luggage room, near to cafeteria (it's at your own risk). Then we went out to QVM. It's about 10 mins walk from this hostel .. Pretty quite during nightime. You can always chilled out at the kitchen for reading and socializing.Definitely can sleep well at night .

I've lived here for more than 2 months. This would not have happened if I didn't like it. "Very good" is exaggerated as a rating, but there's nothing between this and average. The hostel has a reputation for being tolerant to backpackers and their explicit lifestyle. You can drink and have fun, but they make sure it doesn't escalate. The... More

MIB is in Franklin Street (CBD). Stayed there for one night in an eight bed dorm and it was generally clean and backpackers were considerate. People at the reception area are a bit noisy but when it was "curfew" time, I was surprised to see them follow the rules! Toilets are really clean and plenty of showers so no need... More

Stayed in a double room for 3 nights. Good sized room with wardrobe and small coffee table. The downside is that the room is on the opposite side of the building to the bathrooms. The bed is also worn out and is in need of replacement. The room was clean and it smelt pleasant which is always good. The reception... More

At first I wasn't too sure about this place, the reception is on the first floor which seemed a bit odd to me. The room was a good size 6 share, with locker facilities, oscillating fan and the best bit, the quietist beds I've encountered in any hostel! Proper rigid! Not the cleanest of rooms with a layer of dust... More

Stayed at MIB around August, 2012 for 3 days. We can reach the hotel easy, because of good location. Close enough from Flinder Street and Victoria Market. There are some restaurant and mini market around the hotel. For the hostel itself, the bathroom is clean. The bedroom is quite big (4 bed dorm). The staff was very helpful. We never... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the backpackers for two nights. Reception was pretty nice and helpful. The backpackers location was great, very close to the main city hub. The only downside of the location is that the windows aren't sound proof and you can hear all the cars and street noise. The part I loved most about this backpackers... More
