It was my 2nd time at bendigos and i strongly recommend it. tiff makes you feel being at home instantly, the atmosphere is chilled and the rooms are clean. The bathrooms are working excellent, beds are comfortable and the bar is downstairs ;). Good choice for a stay in Melbourne!

I just love this Hostel! Tiff is very welcoming, the prices are fair (both for staying and at the bar) and the facilities are cleaned each day which is more than enough. One night the shower was broken, but it got fixed the next day so no problem. It is NOT one of those huge hostels which make you feel like your staying in a cold clinic. Instead it feels like you are staying at your friends house just having a great time. The few longtermers are also very open and easy to get connected with.

great place, awesome owners/staff, really cheap good food and perfect if you want something other than a boring faceless hostel and like music.

The owner was very nice and welcoming, but the long stayers have taken over. Smoking seemed to be allowed inside so it constantly stinks of smoke. One shower was shared by every guest staying there as the other was leaking and directed guests not to use it. Tried to use the bathroom during the night, and the floor was covered in toilet paper and urine while a boy sat IN the girl's sink (?) talking on a phone and smoking. Strangest experience of hostel living ever - and we're travellers.

Hi there, thank you for taking the time to post a review. Just to let everyone know who may read EC's comments; the Men's bathroom was being repaired & upgraded during EC's stay with us, it was out of use for a sum total of 2 days including the day of repair. Please note: both Male & Female bathrooms are FULLY FUNCTIONAL & CLEANED DAILY. Unfortunately we do not offer overnight or late night cleaning so the urine & paper sink-sitting-phone-smoking incident was out of our control.

What interested me in the place was the music venue and scene in the bar below the hostel. In my opinion the hostel has everything you need to have a comfortable and fun stay. The owners Guy and Tiff are very friendly and knowledgeable of the surrounding area. The area where the hostel is located is right by many stores and restaurants. If you want to grab a drink or bite downstairs they have great deals for the hostel residents. I wish I could say more but, no more txt is allowed.

It´s a great place and Tiff makes you feel at home from the moment you arrive. always with a great attitude (considering the extremely bad attitude from the surrounding hostels). The place is clean and comfortable and has a very chill atmosphere.
