It is not quite bad if you are a backpacker . Overall is quite good. If I have a chance, I will visit there again. The staff are friendly, but sometimes it is a bit chaotic there. I still like it. One thing that should be improve is the Internet connection.

It's my second visit in Melbourne. In the CBD! everything is so close! The building is old, but so characteristic. Like my roommates, they where really nice! Love the free pancakes in the morning. Went every night to the Ubar! where they have special prices if you stay in this hostel.

This is the filthiest hostel I have ever stayed in. It's dirty, my room when I arrived had hair all over the floor and toe nails, bits of food and the room had only been moved into that day. Mice were running around the place and because the doors do not go all the way down to the floor and... More

Thank you for your email. I am very saddened to hear you didn't enjoy your stay considering you stayed over a week with us. Mice is a major issue Melbourne has and we are getting on top of it, slowly but surely. Also being set in the middle of the city you are always going to have some outside noise.... More

The hostel had an excellent atmosphere and great location. It's right in the city center and near free trams to everything everywhere you'll want to go. The staff was very friendly. Will definitely come back.

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.
