A good budget option for someone who wants more privacy than a hostel. Location is good for both walking into the central business district or catching a tram or bus. The pub downstairs is great (they even have good beer!.) The bed was clean and comfortable. Service is limited, but that expectation is set from the website, so that was... More

If you're a light sleeper...not for you. Walls are paper thin. Could hear a bear hibernating next door. Friendly staff though and nice food and pub. Close to the MCG if you're thinking of a footy weekend. Tram right across the road. 9 dollars cab fare to Victoria market.

This is an odd mix of a place. For example, comfortably-sized showers and excellent quality towels but a bathroom door which has no wall above it (so any digestive processes are apparent to other occupants of the room!); and a comfortable, probably king-sized, bed in a room where more than 2 suitcases would be a serious problem. We saw two... More

No WIFI in the rooms. Major problem for travelling business folks like myself. Internet available during opening hours downstairs which starts at 3pm. Other than that all as fine. But I took the room because it is listed as having WIFI a bit deceptively as there is none in the rooms. Don't book if you need to work online unless... More

Well, if you are looking for a good budget hotel in a not too far location in Melbourne, this would be it. The hotel is small - probably not more thant 20 rooms in the enitire hotel. The location is located close to the tram station ( either Smith St station or Wellington st. ), although it is not close... More

I got a great vibe as soon as I walked in. A really funky pub that has been tastefully done up with quality interiors.The service was great & the guy who checked me in was very helpful. The only faults I have is the room had a strange smell & it is noisy. I could hear the people in the... More

Room was big with high ceilings and new ensuite and location is great being only a short walk to the city. Main road location did mean some noise but overall would definitely stay here again, especially considering the value.

Clean and inviting rooms, though quite small with no door to the bathroom, but we were just happy to have our own. Location was good, just a leisurely 20 minutes walk to Melbourne CBD and frequent trams were just across the street. Also close to some nice and cheap eateries and a little convenience store or you could of course... More

Great location and very reasonably priced but lots of bar noise from downstairs every night. We booked a 'deluxe room' with ensuite which was small and basic but enough for us. Bathroom has no door and toilet is in full view though so not great if you're not comfortable toileting in front of your roommate.
