Stayed in a double room for 3 nights. Good sized room with wardrobe and small coffee table. The downside is that the room is on the opposite side of the building to the bathrooms. The bed is also worn out and is in need of replacement. The room was clean and it smelt pleasant which is always good.
The reception was very helpful in sorting us out and also giving us the security cards. There is a standard $20 bond which you will get back later on.
Bathrooms are separated men and women. Your are required to use your key card to get into the bathroom which is a first for me but it does make sense. Bathrooms are clean and have good showers.
The building itself is worn down and the hallways are drab. But that adds to the character I suppose. No complaints and would stay here again if I needed.
Location is great with Melbourne central station right around the corner. Plenty of eateries around open till quite late. If you want groceries there is an aldi just across the street.
