It was ok, with 4 share room but the 8 share room was a bit small. The hostel is reasonably clean but to get up to the room was a bit of a climbed up the stairs case, 3 level to be exact. The staff was helpful and the hostel located at the handy location across the victoria market and...

I pretty much had no choice in booking this hostel as it was White Night in the city and I'd left it too late to book anywhere else. So I booked without reading reviews. I turned up and checked in then went to my room to find there was no bed made and none if the girls in the room...

The hostel itself isn't that bad, however, there are 0 consequences for bad behaviour. Throughout the entire hostel there are signs saying that there is zero tollerance for bad behaviour and that violators will be thrown out. I, like many other backpackers, have been forced to switch rooms due to travellers acting loud at night, violent, using alcohol/drugs in the...

Arrived at 2pm - the book in time to be told room wouldn't be ready until 2.45. Normally, this would be a non-issue however on the basis check out is 10am, then this is ridiculous. They have many rooms and likely not enough staff - trying to make as much $$$$ as possible. Half hour a day wifi in the...

I was there for a 4 days and for 3 of them some sort of fan on the roof was making extremely loud noises 24 h a day. I couldn't sleep properly. Except that, bathrooms were ok. Stuff were sleeping very poor english so we could not understand each other. Location was very good in the main Centre- good public...

I booked this drunk without reading the reviews. Turns out it's not the bargain I expected. One rock hard pillow isn't enough to pull over my head and drown out the noise of next door having sex. The toilets have bodily fluids all over the floor. The showers aren't any better. I'm only staying here one night, and that's one...

my review for this hostel so far. Terrible lighting for makeup. Pillows hard as rocks. No lamp in my freaking room. Creepy Asian desk man that tries hitting on you. Other guests sound like elephants walking down the hallways. Lots of stairs, not good in heels. 'No alcohol' signs everywhere???? note to self: do not return. 2/10 Fine if you're...

It's one step below the average hostel in Melbourne, but you have to consider that it's in a great location, almost next door to Victoria Market and the price is considerably lower. You'll pay for instance 33$ per night while you'll end up paying 50$ at a different hostel. The kitchen is small and not much equipped and the rooms...

Poor ventilation in the female shared dorms. Kitchen is filthy, but the location is so convenient and the staff and guests are chill. It's alright if you just use it to crash when your half conscious. Close to trams, close to shops , close to trains , in the heart of the city

I have been to many accommodations, suffered many nightmares but this was by far the worse. I have stayed here before and well it was average before, facilities were not good at all but it was a place to stay at the last minute. This visit changed my mind, I would rather sleep on the streets next time. There was...

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.
