I hate giving bad reviews but after a night at this place I had to. For $155 we got one night in a double bed room. Which was a ridiculous price for a room that barely fits in the bed and a toilet that the whole floor shares. We were so upset by the room we hoped to sleep asap... More

Great little place to stay. A bit shabby and thread bare but who cares for $23 a night with a cooked dinner thrown in? Big dining area, kitchen clean as can be expected, 24 hour reception, free brewed coffee till 10 am every morning, friendly atmosphere. Clean rooms and good quality clean bedding, some with en suites. Near to beach... More

Where do I start, my friend and I spent 4 nights here and would not do so again. It was the most disgusting place we've ever stayed at, their idea of cleaning was to use a dustpan and brush on the floor. The showers were mouldy, floors filthy, toilets constantly stunk of piss. Our room smelt terrible all the time,... More

Staff were friendly though unskilled,no towels in our room and when we went and got them they were clean though badly stained,also when on the third day they did deliver towels... More

Me and my boyfriend chose to stay in the coffee palace as we wanted a cheap and cheerful double room to stay for our first week in Melbourne. We were attracted to the picture displaying a nice, new, clean room and unfortunately this is not what we got. Our room was a bed, a sink with continuous dripping taps, and... More

There has been a huge improvement since the new management have taken over. All the facilities are currently being updated and improved. Great location, friendly staff, great value for money. And a free cup of coffee every morning!

We booked on the website a double room with en suite toilet but shared shower for 60$ per night. When we arrived in hostel, we found a really bad surprise: the room was devoid of en suite toilet, heating and window!!! It looked like a prison... We spoke with the guys working at the reception and they apologized, telling us... More

Great spot just off the main drag in St Kilda, That's where the goodness ends unfortunately! Our bed was entirely broken, there are contradictory signs everywhere! "checkout at 10, checkout at 11, checkout at 12???" Harsh prohibitive signs - "No alcohol in rooms" and my favourite - "This is an old historic building and the fire alarms are very sensitive,...

I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Coffee Palace! There have been vast changes in the bedrooms, bathrooms and common areas that improve the comfort and appearance greatly. I would advise all travelers to make their way to the Coffee Palace to experience its great location and of course a great cup of coffee!
