Booked this hostel for the minimum stay of 7 days, could only manage to stay 5. To say the place is filthy is an understatement. Bed sheets, pillows and floor were dirty. Kitchen was unusable due to the build up of grime and filth. Staff were unhelpful, dismissive and rude. This hostel is described as like "living with a family" this could be no further from the truth. Over priced a horrible experience. Wouldn't recommend to anyone. No security and felt completely unsafe. Aoife

Owner Comment (Hide)
Clearly, didn't enjoy her stay. I have asked other guests about her thoughts, but it seems she didn't "click socially" with anybody within the hostel and actually wasn't there very much. We have never had a review like this in 15 years of operation!!

The owner could be a little less stressed out but is tolerable none the less. The atmosphere is great here, a small hostel where everyone gets to know each other since everyone has to stay at least a week.

I booked to stay at CMA for a week...almost 2 months on and I'm still here! Really good location, close to Melbourne CBD as well as everything Richmond has to offer. Good facilties, comfortable bedrooms & living areas and the biggest video collection I've ever seen! Steve the owner is really knowledgeable about the area and is always keen to give you advice on local events and recommendations on places to visit/eat etc. Definitely worth a visit!

CMA is a really great place to stay. Everything is close, including tram stop and supermarket. People are friendly and Steve is a very good host. He gave me contact's phone number and helps me to find work.
