I put myself and my friend up here for a couple of nights. Compared to my experiences of hostels in Europe, this was exceptional. The rooms were clean, beds were comfy, with beautiful Victorian high ceilings and the bathrooms always looked just-cleaned. We had a fridge in the room which was very useful, and got onto wifi okay. I got a bedroom on the second floor with one wall on Toorak street, and the noise was quite bad during the night. The windows let all the noise through, and i didnt sleep well as a result.
Also, for what we paid, we could have been in a four star hotel, had i booked with an internet offer somewhere else.. and this really is a hostel (unfortunately it was last minute, and some of the cheaper rooms were booked already). I definitely expect a bathroom to ourselves for that price, so that was a shame. Price was probably inflated due to location also - South Yarra is a great location, and if I hadnt been specific about being THERE, i would have been looking for a higher brow hotel with an offer online..
For a hostel, its great. Amazing even. For a hotel.. no way. And i think I am definitely more of a hotel girl..
