After using this site for travel advice many times, I'm returning the favour with my first submission.
From Melb Airport we caught Skyway Shuttle bus ($16) to their terminal and then their mini bus to our hotel.
We stayed at Causeway 353 for 4 nights. As others have mentioned, be aware that this hotel's entrance is located in Equitable Place (a laneway between Little Collins & Collins Sts) and is reached only by foot. The hotel's facade is only a few feet wide and is easily missed but look up for their green sign. Also be aware that there are at least 3 Causeway Hotels in Melb CBD but only one '353'.
A $50 amount was taken from our credit card upon check-in but a credit is issued if no charges incurred. Reception staff were friendly and no hold-ups upon arrival.
Our 'King' room was on 2nd floor and whilst room and bathroom was small it was adequate as we were out all day. Good curtains and quiet so I (a light sleeper) found it easy to sleep. Comfortable bed and pillows helped!
Room contained aircon, safe, robes, slippers, hairdryer, complimentary water, microwave, iron and board, complimentary newspaper every day,
Shower (no bath in our room) was hot and toiletries (incl shampoo & conditioner)provided.
I locked my handbag in safe before going to breakfast every morning. One morning a maid entered our room while we were at breakfast despite the 'Privacy Required' notice we had left on our locked door. But I think this was probably due to language problems as housekeeping staff had little english but were very pleasant (plus the maid had noticed us leaving).
Our door had no security chain on the inside which I would have preferred.
Computers & printer on 2nd floor (fee payable) and it was mostly empty, so nice & quiet to use.
Good continental buffet breakfast (catch lift to basement). Food provided was plenty for us but al a carte is available.
Many cafes, restaurants, shops, Flinder's Str Railway Station & small supermarkets in the vicinity.
Easy to access various sites by either free city circle tram (no 35) or free red tourist shuttle. Obtain map of routes from Tourist Info at Bourke Str Mall or Federation Square etc. If you have time (or it's raining), ride the entire route (11/2 hours) on shuttle bus as the commentary is good and audible.

Stayed here for 4 days, good location, very clean and tidy, service at the front desk left a little to be desired though, breakfast average. Overall good stay.

Great location, you cant go wrong. Also close to transport and shops on Collins st. And Fed Sq. In a nice quiet laneway.
Excellent spot!
Things we didnt like was the rooms are cramped. Also, as another traveller pointed out its not airy. If you're claustrophobic, you wont like it. Wi-fi didnt work in the hotel room and internet usage was quite expensive.
We may not wanna come back here as there are a lot of other hotels to try.
I Will recommend for a nice, clean, cheap hotel, though.

Stayed here again beginning of September with my friend. Arriving about 10.30 were were able to check in straight away. Love the location, the staff are very friendly and helpful (we had no remote control for the TV and one was brought up to our room within minutes) and the room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. Included breakfast is a great start to the day, no need to leave the hotel to find somewhere to eat. Will definitely be back again.

Hotel is very clean. Staff is friendly. I managed to have an early check-in to the hotel at 10am. Location is great, very convenient. You can find sushi bar, western food and even Asian cuisine just a stone throw away from this hotel. It is also within walking distance to China Town & Federation Square. Breakfast is simple but it’s fine. I won’t hesitate to stay there again when I am in Melbourne.
