Friendly staff and a wonderful owner who goes out of her way to offer social activities for guests. Be aware that in staying here, you've chosen such either for the bar scene or for the price, but not for proper amenities nor restful sleep. Expect to encounter dilapidated bathrooms and nigh unusable WiFi. The bar music blasts until 1 AM and usually resumes again at 10 AM. The kitchen is small and there isn't a proper lounge to be found.

I really enjoyed my stay. The downstairs bar is a great place for a drink with good live music. Friendly staff, great location. Very homely. I would definitely recommend and will be back next time i'm in Melbourne!

Amazing place to stay. It has a real family feel to the place. I met some amazing people in my time there. Location is great! Right across the road from the market, supermarket, cafes and bars. Staff are amazing and can help you out with nearly everything you want. The bar and FREE WIFI are huge pluses.

Really cool hostel. It's smaller which makes it easier to get to know people and feel right at home. All the staff are amazing. Would definitely recommend this place!

I had such a good time at this hostel! I stayed just a week, but made lots of friends and the friendly staff were always up for a chat over the bar. Close to the CBD which made things easy. Would definitely recommend the Drop Bear Inn!

I very much enjoyed my stay at this hostel. At first glance the place appears quite old but I quickly realised it's character. It's in a great location - close to all the necessities and the city. It's a smaller hostel which is nice. All the staff are friendly and helpful and make an effort to get to know you which makes you feel really welcome. A lot of the other guests seem to have lived there for quite a long time which tells me something good! I'll definitely be back :)
