Great location, Victoria Queen market just around the corner and just a few blocks away from shopping at Melbourne central. The rooms are ok, clean, but the beds sounds soo much so bring earplugs. The kitchen is really small and there's always people in there making food so it gets crowded fast. You have to pay for the wifi, 4$/day... More

If you want to stay somewhere and get no sleep - this is the place to go. We are currently on level 1 and can hear every single conversation outside even with the window closed. There seems to be no noise curfew which is awful for people who need sleep if you have work or need to get up early.... More

I stayed here when I first arrived in Australia, and I remembered it being pretty good. This was not the case on this occasion. My room was dirty and cluttered, and the beds creaked so much, every time you rolled over you pretty much woke everybody in the room up. The staff, with very few exceptions, were surly and stone-faced,... More

On first arrival staff were friendly and helpful. Dorm rooms were clean, also stayed in a private room for two nights which was actually really nice for a hostel private room! Bad sides are that the kitchen is ridiculously small for a hostel this size, two cooker tops and only one area to prepare food. The other issue is the... More

I really wanted to like this place as the staff were so understanding when I had to change my reservation due to a crisis. Unfortunately, the room needed a good clean, especially the bathroom, there was a tiny wardrobe & little else in the room & I had a you-beaut single room with own bathroom. The lift light was not...

The place is very dirty, housekeepers need training, beds uncomfortable, kitchen tiny, I would not recommend staying here..... Staff need more training as any request seemed an effort. Overall bad vibe and unhappy staff

Nothing to write home about in this hostel...the rooms were average, if a bit unclean. The kitchen is absolutely tiny - cooking a simple dinner of pasta and a jar of sauce was seriously difficult and everywhere you stand you're in someone's way. The free guided walking tour was great, and the staff are mostly friendly and helpful, especially those... More

Stayed for one night, glad I didn't stay for two as they have ZERO REFUND policy which sets off alarm bells straight away. My bed had been made but the room obviously hadn't been cleaned. The beds were squeaky so the dorm was noisy. The showers and toilets were some of dirtiest I've seen in a city hostel. The bar... More

I usually try to see the good in such places, however I have literally NOTHING good to say about this place, when we got to the hostel, the (private) room we ordered had not only not been made up, but had rubbish littered all over the floor. The room was freezing, the toilets were bloody filthy and smelt horrible, and... More
