“Hotel at hostel price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

This place is pretty awesome. Really cheap for a double room so if you are sick of hostel dorms then this place is perfect. Nice old building and friendly, eccentric staff.
Really good free brekkie and unlimited teas and coffees all day and night.
Great location, right by chapel street or next to train and tram stood for the city.

Lovely old building ,has been well treated for it's years ,very clean and well presented.Great friendly staff.Had a room with bathroom ,nice facilities.Bathroom modernized but sadly no where to hang a towel to dry .It would be nice to have a chair to sit on after returning from long walks around this wonderful city,even a plastic folding chair would be great.Being an older person i tended to find it a little bit noisy from street traffic.

Upon arriving in Melbourne after 3 months in Asia, we decided to try and find a place to stay that was not full of partying young people. And also with a private room, to be able to relax when we arrived. We were very lucky with the Claremont guesthouse. We got a twin room for a very reasonable rate. It was a clean and pleasant place to stay, only minutes walk from south yards station and of course chapel street. There was always a helpful member of staff at the 24 hour front desk.
The only negatives were firstly the too was quite small, with a set of bunks in there, it wasn't the most spacious for 2 girls with plenty luggage! However it was clean, and comfortable. Secondly there is limited cooking facilities for guests. There is no hob or oven for use, this did not affect us as we only stayed for a shot period, but may be an issue for long term guests.

Overall I would recommend this to people looking for a hostel in Melbourne.

Stayed in a lot of hostels and fancy hotels and this place is in a league of their own. Very clean, warm and friendly. Stayed in double room for 2 nights bathroom close by and all to ourselves. They even had fresh bread and sultana bran for brekky. I could live there.

Highly recommended basic accommodation. Staff very friendly and efficient. Convenient location. Nice old refurbished building. Continental breakfast and wifi and newspapers a real bonus. Stayed twice, smaller rooms a bit cosy but okay for the price. Shared facilities as clean as one could expect. Have stayed twice, will do so again. Parking arrangements convenient and quite cheap for the location.

We have stayed 5 nights in Melbourne and I was happy with the hotel. Even though the room was tiny and I had to climb to bed every night, but hotel was very clean, OK location with free wifi. even though the bathrooms were shared but they where very clean every time I have entered. Breakfast was good as well, for everyonce taste, with plenty of tea, coffee, juice, milk.
Train station was very close as well as the tram station.

Very clean guesthouse. Toilets and shower are located at the end of the hallway and the rooms are quite small but there is free wifi, tv and the guesthouse is located close to a long shopping street and close to trams/train. Breakfast was very simple but adequate. Stayed 2 nights and will go back again next time we are in melbourne
