This place has the basic features of a backpackers' hostel (shared bathrooms, dorm room/bunk options, good rates), but without the grimy/slightly shady feel that a lot of backpackers' have! Huge positives: the room and bathrooms were spotless, service was good, and a basic breakfast was included - cereals, tinned fruit, juice and tea and coffee, with the option of toast with condiments. There was also free wi-fi.
The location is top-notch: Toorak St in South Yarra, close to hundreds of shops and good restaurants, and about 50m from the South Yarra train station so it's really easy to get into the city for sightseeing.
The only downside was that there was no parking. I came by car and ended up parking at a nearby shopping mall's parking lot, which turned out expensive. I would recommend coming here by public transport if possible.
Overall, because this was a really positive experience I am going to continue staying over here when I need a place to sleep in the city.
