Good Value if you want a 'Sleep & Go'

2 mins from Train station, less than 1 to trams. If you are a foodie or a shopaholic, you will not care about the room as you will only go there to sleep. Which is great as it’s really all its good for. There was no couch or rest area, so it’s perfect if you just need a roof over your head. If you were to stay there for a few nights, I think it might become a little harder. You literally get a bed, a tiny desk & chair and a TV oh and some selves. That’s it. So it’s no home away from home, in saying that - you are not paying top dollar either, you can save it up there and then spend it on the shops below you.

2 main issues - 1) No toilets in room, have to go down the hall. 2) No lift, if I didn't have my partner I would have never got my heavy suit case up 4 flights of stairs!

Large, spacious, cleaned twice daily incl bathrooms, bright, free WiFi, free cereal and toast for breakfast. No mixed dorms, towels changed whilst I was there, locked doors and lockers in the room available. TV in my dorm (female 6 bed), no alcohol allowed on premises. Efficient and helpful staff. Next door to South Yarra station and close to Chapel St which has lots of shops and restaurants. Family, couple and solo traveller friendly, good mix of ages and Australian and non Australian tourists.

The Claremont was a great place to stay for the price. The room was clean and the staff was great! Location made it easy to walk to attractions. Free wi-fi & a free breakfast (plus coffee & other drinks available throughout the day)! Parking close by: $27/day. The bathrooms were down the hall, very clean. Would recommend to anyone & would stay there again!

Its not often that is stay in a hotel but when i do i make sure to give the most accurate and informative information for people wishing to stay. Hotel claremont is a cheap option for travellers looking for an affordable option when visiting Melbourne.

It is a little pricier than normal backpackers however the privacy and small dorm rooms more than make up for this. The staff are incredibly friendly and will look after all your needs. The showers can be hot from time to time but usually spray out cold, then hot for a while, then cold again. If you adhere to the 3 minute guidelines for showers - (who actually does though) then you will most likely be freezing because thats how long it takes for the water to heat up. The beds are relatively comfortable. All rooms have skylights so as soon as the sun comes up its as if the light has been turned on. The security is reasonable with a door code and they keep the fridges locked to keep out thieving freeloaders.

There is wireless internet and luggage storage, free breakfast and free tea and coffee. a good little place to stay for sure.

Room Tip: The dorm rooms are huge and you will most likely be the only one in there. The private double rooms...

Not bad for a budget room. Only issue was the keyring on door key is huge so they insist on making you leave it at reception when you go out. Twice during the night when we arrived back we had to wait about an hour for the dodgy night shifter to come back to his office, and no apology at all..... on other hand staff is day were very helpful.
