I haven't stayed at Unilodge on Flinders but I've spent six months at Unilodge@Melbourne, in Swanston St, , Carlton. As I can't find it in the Tripadvisor's list's I'm writing here as I feel I have to warn any student that is considering it as an option for his/her long term stay in Melbourne. It is the worst place I've... More

This accommodation is horrible. The apartment that I stayed at had cockroaches problem (30 cockroaches in the first week) and several other people in the same building said the same thing. Management were slow to take action. I was paying $400.0 per week.

This hotel is very basic, if your just in town and need something cheap and central then this would be for you. Rooms are small but comfortable. Located just outside the Melbourne Central St. exit on Swanston St. so everything you need is at your door step. Rooms are clean although some items in the kitchenette could use replacement. Would...

I stayed at this hotel for three nights with three other students - we were part of an exchange group coming to a school elsewhere in Australia, but first we wanted to explore Melbourne for a couple days, so a relatively inexpensive hotel was picked since we would not be spending any real amount of time in the room. This... More

Our experiences are nearly identical to the previous review. We stayed on the 12th floor; self contained rooms are quite spacious & pretty modern. They could definitely be much cleaner - there were marks on the walls in many places, the floor in the kitchen was sticky. The bathroom was large, but the shower was the smallest I've ever seen...

At first I thought this was good - nice view and not bad sized room, if a bit shabby. I thought it was great to have openable windows. Later when people were obviously smoking on balconies and two of the windows would not CLOSE it was not so great. Someone tried the door to my room at one point, which... More

I booked this for its kitchen facilities and location, and dreaded what might be for the low price. NO WORRIES! We were delighted to find a very clean, very comfortable, obviously refurbished (except for the couch!) one bedroom apartment. The bed provided the best nights sleep since we left home in Tassie 2 weeks prior, They even provided biscuits with... More

We (4 singles in their late teens-20's) stayed in a Quad share 2 bed room apartment for 5 days from the 4th to the 8th of January. The apartment was located on the top level and the first two days we stayed there were very hot, there was no air conditioning so it was a bit uncomfortable, but they did... More

This property is really nothing to shout about....we stayed in a 2 bedroom unit, room 1317 from Dec 26th till Jan 1st. The apartment's bathroom has seen better days . Unfortunately for us, the weather in Melbourne was sizzling hot and there were no air conditioning in the unit. We had to make do with electic fans which only circulated... More
