One of the coolest pub venues I have ever stayed at. Awesome atmosphere at the Bendigo hotel with a great pub grub food from the new kitchen..

A really unique hostel! I'm a night owl, so I loved having the metal shows downstairs til late. Tiff and the other staff keep the place clean and organised, so no trouble there. There's also a lovely old cat named Emily that gives the place a homey feel. Only major downside was the kitchen and laundry restrictions that start from 3pm. A little rough around the edges like any hostel can be, but overall a very cool place! A shame they'll be stopping hostel operations soon!

No longer allowed to use the kitchen, everyone is expected to cook in the common room with one hob, microwave and tabletop grill - not even a sink to wash up. Music is loud but not on every night and not that bad to get to sleep. Room doors are left open by everyone but didn't seem to be any issues with people wandering in/stealing.

One of the best hostels in whole Melbourne, located in the most interesting suburb with its art and underground scene. The kitchen is perfectly equipped, clean and you've got also fridges in your dorm room and the community room. Nice people, comfortable beds and an extraordinary atmosphere! Definitely recommend that.

The owner is so nice, but the staff that works and lives in the hostel is so dirty, and lazy, they don't do anything of their duties. The room was a caos because the guys were messy and lazy too. Good environment, good location, but heavy and Hard rock concerts downstairs... too noisy, the good thing is thay the concert stops more or less at 23PM, then you Can sleep.

I love this place! Bendigo has a great vibe about it and a great culture. Everyone (staff and guests) were really friendly and awesome to have a laugh/drink with. Facilities are top notch and the city is a tram ride away. Live music is free entry most nights and if you're worried about sleeping through the music, don't be, its not that loud through a closed door.

Great Value for money and tiff was really friendly and helpful. It was a clicky atmosphere due to lots of long termers. Only down side was that ppl smoked in the common room which left a stale smel and although free parking is advertised the hostel doesn't actually have parking you just park on the street and hope you don't get a ticket! Great wifi and kitchen facilities and amazing offers for those staying in the hostel in the bar downstairs. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed in the private twin bedroom for 3 nights Not the most modern up-to-date place to live Washroom facilities were abit rustic Access to the kitchen facilities was a bonus However clean enough overall especially which i saw staff cleaning daily Really loud place but already forewarned in their description, cool to see the live bands Tiff, the owner, was wonderful Very helpful and informative Had a few requests that she was able to accommodate for me and very reasonable Would stay again!
