We were so looking forward to our holidays in oz. Our first stop was Melbourne! We arrived at coffee palace at around 8pm and my first impressions were okay, it looked a little run down but I had booked a double private room for my friend and I and the photos on the Internet looked great. Firstly the smell of hash nearly knocked me out when I got to the front door. It appeared dirty and noisy! The staff were rude and we had to wait approx half hour as the guy at reception kept getting distracted while checking us in. I nearly cried when I seem our 'private room' it was dirty, smelly and tiny!! Not at all what it looked like on Internet!! The bed sheets were stained with yellow blotches and was covered in men's hair! Hated the place, will never ever go back again!! Avoid avoid avoid!!!!!!
