We stayed in Ibis budget for a 1 night in May 2014. Small and served its purpose... for bed and shower. Space is small so if you are not used to tiny rooms , this' not it. The reception was most helpful, the dinnng area was good too, we were able to make a simple breakfast ourselves. Just for the... More

Stayed there in May 2012. After two years and traveling to other 6 cities, I still miss the comfy bed in this budget hotel. We are on a large group to attend a meeting. I share the one queen bed with a bunk bed over head with another two girls. The white bedding is not only comfy but also super... More

The hostel staff is good, they provide one more pillow to us as my uncle cannot sleep without 2 pillows. The rest of the facilities is like normal budget hostel, nothing special about it. Just few minutes walk to flinders station and free tram to most of the tourist attractions.
