This property has a great location and a great history - the place where Melbourne was conceived. The dumb waiter for luggage was a nice retro touch but the lack of heating in the bathroom was not. And no housekeeping. Really? Unless you are down to your last dollar, you can do much, much better.

Great kitchen and lounge, nice, helpful reception staff! It is an old building so the layout and rooms aren't exceptional but perfectly fine. You can very clearly hear music pumping from the club next door but if you can sleep through a bit of noise it's no problem and generally a good place to stay

Not recommended for families staying over the weekend. Although we were ensured it was going to be quiet after midnight (as we had prepaid and there was no refund) the noise did not subside out in the car park out of our window until 3am. There was also a party down the hall in which people thought it was OK... More

Second stay at the bat. In a queen bed room with toilet and shower ensuite . Sooo cheap for a very clean room, with comfy beds, spacious, good to have own loo and shower. For the price 60 dolllars a night its excellent value.

This lodging is ridiculously cheap, for which you would expect far less. Rooms are just cheap bunks but had own bathroom for a 2 person room. communal area and kitchen is MASSIVE and well furnished. Improvement suggestion would be to collect some second hand DVD's and make it possible to watch films. Bar / Club beneath so if it is... More

Everything was great. Except it was noisy from road noise as most say. But yet again I'm a country boy so not use to such. Great location. Close walk to city and Hospital. Be better if they had more parking space.

I noted that I was disabled on my application and to their credit they did say there was stairs and no lift However to put me in a room that was the furthest away from reception with 4 flights of about 35 steps in total was ridiculous and to deduct the booking fee three months prior to my stay was...

We do our best to situate everyone to suit their requirements, however sometimes this doesn't happen and we apologize that you experienced this during your stay. We... More

Accommodation quite comfortable. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Kitchen facilities very good but let down by guests not cleaning up after themselves, even though all guests asked to do so on check in. Free Wi Fi a bonus!
