It's been said a lot about how good the location of the hostel is but I'll say it again - it is just perfectly right, especially for someone who sees Melbourne for the first time. It's an easy point to start exploring the city as all the major attractions like Flinders street station, St. Paul's cathederal (where all the tour buses to Great Ocean Road, Phillip Island, Mornington Peninsula etc. stop at) and Federation Square are literally a few steps away. You will never miss the city circle tram or a tram to St.Kilda. And if you're fancy for a nice meal or a glass of good wine Degraves street is just around the corner. So for me it was a big thing that I can live in the centre of the city and still travel on a budget.
Plus, the rooms are warm in Australian winter which can be really really chilly, especially in the south (anyone who traveled around the country knows most buildings have no central heating there). Oh, and the hostel is located in the same building with the police station, above it. So it's totally safe.
