    Wifi here is pathetic. Free Wifi is only available in the bar downstairs and neither one of my devices could connect to it. You have to pay for Hostel Wifi and you can only connect one device at a time, if you are able to...More

    Central Business District
    Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
    tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
    feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
    city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
    throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You

    corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
    even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
