If I pay a budget price, I do not expect 5 star accommodation - BUT, I do expect a clean and properly managed place to stay and expect it to be as it is described in a website, review or handbook. This place fills none of this criteria. It has been appalling for many years, staff were not friendly. Rooms... More

I disagree with this reviewer as our place is very well managed and our staff are friendly and helpful. I dont understand how the reviewer has said that our hotel has been appalling for many years - how would she know that as a traveller as they only visit the place while travelling. The only way she say could say... More

Second (or may be third ?) time I come in that backpacker because I have always been so well welcomed! The manager and the staff chosen are so kind that i shouldn't change for nothing when i come in Melbourne. My room is pleasant: i have a common balcony and I am quiet (almost when there is not too many... More

We got lucky that they had given our 4 bed dorm away when we arrived, so got a private for the same price! The boss and a few of the staff are actually really nice, and the tv is good.. but other than that, it really isn't a good hostel! Such a shame that everywhere else is so expensive! They... More

We open the gate at 10am every day - seven days a week. Check in is from 12pm so this guest is lucky that he was in his room by 11am. The furniture in the foyer is in good condition as they are quality and comfortable couches. The coffee machine usually works as does the wifi. The kitchen is noisy... More

I've read most of the other negative reviews and they are correct in spirit. I take exception to the way some of them are done, for instance tossing your luggage and items all over the room to make it look messy. The point is you need to be fair and accurate about this. So: The other reviews are correct. I... More

There is not filthy urine on the carpet and the rooms are cleaned completely when people vacate their rooms. The internet only works properly in the lobby but sometime you can get lucky and it will work in some rooms. Sorry about the kitchen being messy with approx 30 people using it at the time but we are busy in... More

Stayed during the Open Tennis Australia, everywhere was booked out and extremely expensive. We came to this place as a last resort and yes, read the previous reviews.

We are a cheap backpackers - not a 5 star hotel. I do not take luggage for guests due to back problems. If you have heavy luggage you have to be prepared to carry it. We do the best we can and all our linen is clean but sometimes not matching. More

Its in a great location, a two minute walk from the shops and a tram stop not far from it either. The city is about fifteen minutes away on the tram andthe beach is a ten minute walk or two minutes on the tram. That's about all the good there is for this place... Freezing cold room, pathetic heater or... More

Its hard to understand the need for a heater in the middle of summer which is a strange complaint - but we have good heaters available on request . The blankets are clean and some may have holes - but we always offer others if requested with pleasure. This ex guest says The Coffee Palace is cheaper and cleaner yet... More

We stayed at the Oslo during November 2013.

It is a rule of the hotel that all paid up front on arrival and if you dont want to stay you dont have to. Everybody can see their room before they pay if they want - no problem. WE have brand new laundry facilities on site but these guests elected to schlep their stuff down the street. Our bathrooms... More

Reminds me more of a crack den than a hotel. Awful staff, really grubby, blood all over the bedroom carpet and the whole place stinks of weed. You couldn't pay me to go back again. Prisoners get better accommodation and they are being punished.
