My two grandsons were looking for a bite to eat as we drove down Victoria street and saw lights on at 8 PM on Monday last, so pulled up and went in. Sat at table and were waited on by smart young staff. Beer was $10 for a jug and tonights specials were a list of pizzas at $10 each.... More

Room was small but very clean, the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was clean. Absolute bargain for the price we payed !!! Excellent location, 15 minute walk to the CBD and MCG and 20 minutes into the city or right opposite the tram line. The restaurant was beautiful and served really good craft beer . And it was all...

Went on a friday night with friends. Recommended by their son who lives locally. Ate the sort of bar area with tables. Had pizzas as we were told they are good and they were. Very much in the true Italian style and cooked very quickly. Wine list was good as were beers on tap. Nothing flash just a good drop... More

This pub may be grunge in style on the outside but it feels like you have gone to a friends place with really genuine friendly service. Then there is food that you can't help but comment on how good it is. With a chef that started making Pizza in Italy at the age of 3 you will enjoy a taste... More

The room was not very clean, light didn't work, loud noise on and off through out the day and night even when the window was closed, no coffee or milk, spoon and not very much other stuff, bed made a noise if you even slightly move, steep slippery steps and bathroom was not clean at all! I do not recommend... More

It's an Art Deco pub with rooms atop -- that means old but not painstakingly restored to period detail. They've put generic modern flatpack-style furniture, cheap all-purpose carpet and some fittings in and left the old whitewashed walls, uneven mouldings, poor electricity. Shared bathrooms are a real issue and should be explained upfront when you book. My room faced west... More

Checked into Baden Powell on the last 2 nights of my road trip from Adelaide to Melbourne end of December 2014. Was surprised to find no one there and a note on the entrance with phone number of the manager. Called him and was given the 4 digit pin access for hotel entrance. Parking was convenient with meter parking just... More

Have stayed here on a few occasions and always found the place to be good value for money, clean with decent beds. It is situated on one of the main tram lines into Melbourne and right on the edge of Collingwood and Fitzroy. As a location it couldn't get much better. There are lots of bars and restaurants around the... More

Basically a pub with some rooms on top. The bar is the reception desk. I found the guy working there very helpful and friendly. The place is also in a good location for catching a tram. However when I booked it was not made clear there would be a shared bathroom. It wouldn't be so bad if they were nice... More

I know this hotel is on the budget side and you get what you pay for but we did not get what we paid for. Went to use the spare blanket to find a spider in it so it obviously hadn't been cleaned. Bedding left on floor under the old chair. We were not advised we wouldn't have a bathroom... More
