This is a nice place to stay for travelers and people willing to visit Melbourne. The hostel is close to the city center and most of the places of interest.

The hostel just some up "OK". There was nothing super cool about the place. The toilets, shower rooms and rooms on the 4th floor were horrid! Definitely needs a refurb. Staff were friendly. The end o the city where it is, is convenient, but not the safest at night time

We stayed there two years ago & alot of work has been done on the reception area for the better but very little to the 3rd floor where were staying on. I think the locker system for putting bags when you check outis a waste of time. The old system of a left baggage room was simpler & cheaper.

Very disappointed with the staff. I checked into a private room, 1 hour later a staff member just let themselves into my room without knocking & said she needed to hoover. Later another lady let herself in & couldnt tell me why...I went out to get some food later that evening & came back to find my key card no longer worked...when i got it working again & went up to my room the staff had gone through all of my stuff, removed it from the room & put it ALL in a bin bag! No reasonable explanantion

Hostel was big & sometimes quiet noisy. The bar downstairs was great fun & an added bonus for cheap drinks and meeting people. The rooms could do with an update as well as the girls bathrooms. Other than that nothing bad to say - does the job and in a good location! Thanks

Clean hostel but it is very big so the Atmosphere is low.the Kirchen is too small for the many people and they have LEDs forks.but the Stadt is very friendly and if you habe luck you'll get a gold room for a few money :-)

I did not like it but others may depending on the type of person you are. This was a weird place they had kids running around staying there no alcohol was aloud in the facility or you would get kicked out. Just a downer kinda place if your looking for somewhere to party. This is not it but if you don't like that seen this is the place for you always quiet except for construction in the mornings 7am beds are so comfy best part of the place for sure.

I was as a single traveller in a double room. Can't say how it is in The dorms. Location is good, an Aldi is near by.

Good value stay. The morning breakfast is a nice touch. I would strongly suggest offering free wifi to guests and doing something about the annoying electronic key system as keys lose their data and leave guests locked out if their room when going to the bathroom.

Overall we had a good stay, found a couple of things frustrating 1:the fact that you couldnt even put on deodorant in the rooms seems a bit over the top. 2:they cleaned the bathrooms regularly, they chose terrible times to clean them. there was always a queue of people waiting outside to get in, for up to 20 mins! I came out of the shower once to see a guy in there cleaning no warning. 3:the cleaners kept leaving our room door ajar although we reported it to reception it kept happening
