The hotel was very nice, the facilities are awesome, I really enjoyed the cinema :) however the entire place smelled like the inside of a gym, as soon as I got in my room the smell of body Odour and sweat was so strong I had to leave. The cinema still smelled but was tolerable... Basically the place is really... More

We got a private room there. Really good experience. Nice and big kitchen area, amazing rooftop with a really good view, close to everything and helpful staff. Not bad at all! It was good to have a bar downstairs also.

I've stayed here many times. Even back when I think it was called vic hall. I've stayed in a 4 bed mix dorm a few times - never had any issues. Love that each bed has the lockers close to the bed and a little area near the bed head for charging appliances. Rooms were very clean. I've also stayed... More

It is obvious some floors are divided in half to make 2. Result-very low ceiling. Too many beds for the size of the room and ceiling. No free internet. You could stay in better hostels in Melbourne for the equivalent price. On top of that I had to deal with a long time stayer in my room. A manipulator who... More

Thats what a backpacker wants. Big rooms, clean kitchen and even a tv-room. I felt very comfortable. The only bad thing is that the supermarkets are not that close. All in all it is an upper class hostel with higher prices
