The owner is crazy - do not stay here. She runs the place like a boarding school or convent.

This is actually a good place to stay. I met very good people here. The staff was very friendly and helpful to me though I found she's a little bit weird in the beginning.

The hostel is in a strategic location for transportation (trams) and located just opposite the Victoria Markets. Lots of restarunants and convenient stores along the street. The hostel staff are friendly and willing to help. However, the building is a bit run down and the room was dark (just rely on a light bulb to light up the whole room)... More

The hostile is in a great location for transportation, trams right across the street. Another plus, Victoria Markets also across the street, inexpensive food prices. Lots of restarunants, bars, nite life across the street. The hostile is not the cheapest or the most expensive but I love it here because I made tons of friends. I have experienced food from...

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.
