When it comes to youth hostels this is as good as it gets. Keycard access is required for everything making it very safe. It's located right outside a FREE tram stop which gives you easy transport throughout the city. Everything is very clean and modern. Staff very friendly.

Plus side: - Perfect location - Knowledgeable stuff for insights / dinner - free tram stop in front of the building - nice leisure area Cons: - The team is very aggressive when it comes to engage ppl to take part in "social activities" (ping pong, pub tour, quiz). Guess, look at your customers and assess them. A very hars... More

Weekly events are hosted by the staff who are extremely friendly and get involved with everything. Very easy to meet people in the communal kitchen and dining room. Centre to everything easy to navigate to. Wifi only on ground floor and not in rooms but overall it's a great hostel.

Stayed here for a weekend with a girlfriend. We had a smaller room - single bed and a bunk. Shared with a lovely Canadian backpacker! Very clean, beds very comfortable. Best shower I've ever had a hostel - even topped some hotels and my shower at home! Only problem was getting the heater to work - it was a bit... More

This is located in CBD which it's very convenience to reach the restaurant and the train station. The tram stop is very closed by. But that's also the issues, its a bit noisy to live here. The room, rest room are clean and have a well equipped kitchen to use. Great value to stay here for short time.

I arrived really early, 7am, after a 25hr flight from UK but I got checked in near enough there and then (even though check in isn't until 1pm - might have helped that I had a private en suite room so it was already free).

It's 5mins walk from central station and 15mins to the city centre. Front desk ppl are very helpful. You get lockers in your room which is handy. Make sure you carry your own padlock to save buying one.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
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 never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
