This is essentially backpacker accommodation at the higher end of the market. While many of these types of places can be scummy, this was clean and tidy. I needed a bed for the night as I wasn't going to be in the room much. This was good clean value, with all other private rooms with bathroom in Melbourne that night... More

Absolutely spotless clean (even the shared bathrooms were pretty decent). I was in a dorm room of 6 and there was a problem checking in (they accidentally had too many ppl in the room) but they were so efficient and friendly about quickly getting me into another room where there were only 2 of us. The location was a little... More

Very nice, definitely worth going back to. Not too expensive and has its own bar and gym. Only aspect that could be improved is that the WiFi is paid. Free WiFi at the reception but is close to the loud music from the bar.

I first stayed here two years ago...to be honest, found it by chance as Melbourne was booked out solid with an international Jehovahs Witness conference! My first stay here was brief but great.

I travelled with my friend recently to Melbourne . I stayed 2 nights at this hostel. Welcoming reception. Then we checked into our alloted dorm and it was very unkempt and messy due to the people staying in there, so we asked to change our room and we got another dorm for 6 , which was cleaner and comfortable.

Room space is sufficient for 4. Easily located and location is the pull factor. Has extra bathing areas besides the one in the room. Staff is rather helpful but the hotel does not have an onsite parking which is quite a hassle. Overall a fine experience with the staff and the stay.

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.
