I was only meeting a friend who was traveling in from overseas, so I just needed a bed for the night. I booked this at the airport, before leaving to fly into Melbourne myself. I Can honestly say this last minute booking for the price, was a surprise. I had room #2, a basic, compact, very clean double beded room.... More

Very convenient and friendly staff. Got a free upgrade to a family room. My room wasn't noisy at all. It's only 5 mins walk from train station and about 15 mins walk to Chinatown and the city. I would recommend people to stay here :)

Very central and cheap. Loads of cafes around the hotel for cheap breakfast options. Rooms are clean - linen and towel provided. TV and fridge in the room. Free wifi. A little bit noisy with lane way pubs/restaurants/ club around the corner. I don't like the shared bathrooms and these are usually dirty unless you go at the right time... More

The hotel location is convenient. The room was comfortable. The price was very good for the location. The staff were helpful and nice. The rooms have no air conditioner but they have fans. If I was to visit MElbourne again, I would not hesitate to book there.

We stayed one night, the hotel is in a good location and the room was ok. We paid for an en suite and I know it is a budget hotel and a hostel but it is so noisy. You can hear people on the street and in the hotel no one seems to care about noise especially early in the... More

Situated in the centre, close to shops, restaurants and theaters. There are few nice bars in the same street. Just walking distance to Fitzroy Gardens, Parliament House. Location very convenient to tram stops that will take you to other sightseeing spots. Free tourists' tram stop is nearby.

This is the second time that we've stayed here and we were not disappointed. Sure the entrance and reception looked a bit old and worn but the rooms were nicely decorated and modern. Fridge available to store food and tea/coffee/kettle provided. The bathrooms were shared and well maintained. Free wi-fi in the room. The location is the main attraction as... More

Very helpful on reception with loads of advice and recommendations and information. Only opens at 7,30 so not 24 hour coverage. You are given a key with a code to put in main... More

I booked a room here because of the location and the price, which was cheaper than other places that I've stayed at in Australia. People there mostly keep to themselves, unless it was just me. It's quiet. Easy access to public transportation or a taxi to get you where you want to go. Or you can opt to get around... More

Considering the only other alternative in the same price range is dorm room/backpacker style shared accommodation, you can't beat this place. Great location, super friendly and helpful staff and a nice simple, comfortable room and ensuite. Will definitely be visiting again.

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.
