The owner, Stephen, is really great, and he stops by every morning. The rest of the staff are good, and the residents are mostly long-term (multi-month). There is no wifi, which was a bummer for me. The place is pretty run down, as well. The kitchen and bathrooms are moldy, and cleaning is pretty haphazard. Stay here for the people, not the facilities!

This place has the best vibe of any hostel. The previous comments all say it's like a shared house and it's true. You get a couple folks coming and going but if you are looking to stay in Melbourne for a while this is an excellent spot. Steve is great and definitely tries his best to help you out in any way he can.

CMA is located near the popular Swan and Victoria Streets and it is a nice walk to the CBD. Some of the 'locals' have been at CMA for 6 months or more and, along with the owner Steve, are great resources for finding the 'best' of everything! The atmosphere feels cosy and relaxed like home and it's easy to get involved in activities with other backpackers. Definitely recommended as a great hostel for travellers looking for a longer stay in Melbourne or newcomers looking for a home away from home!

I loved staying in this hostel. So much that I extended my time. I completely understand how people come here for a week and end up staying for 6 months. Great location, Steve is great, and all the other travellers staying make you feel very welcome... everyone is so friendly. Thanks for having me to stay!

I originally booked 1 week at cma but ended up staying for 2 months. Steve the owner is very knowledgeable about the area, he also helped me to find work and even recommended a dentist when I needed emergency work. He has created a place for travellers which on the surface is a hostel but it feels more like a shared house. Most people are staying long term and working in melbourne so it's easy to make friends.

I had an amazing time at CMA. Steve really created something amazing here. I been to a lot of hostles and nothing compares to CMA in terms of culture, community and value. If you are staying in Melbourne for more than a week definitely book here ☺️
