Elephant Backpacker Melbourne
Elephantastic value is offered for beds on Levels 1 & 2. Sure it is like being in a giant call centre with your partition walls not reaching the ceiling. Yes, you hear EVERYTHING your neighbour is doing or saying so don't come unless you bring ear plugs and enjoy getting close and personal with everyone on the floor! Our bathrooms and toilets on Levels 1 & 2 are old fashioned but scrubbed twice daily and occasionally you have to go to Level 3 to have a hot shower.
The communal kitchen, lounge and dining area is located in our basement or dungeon. Sort of like Hogwarts minus the house elves. A questionable variety of crockery, cutlery and pots and pans are provided for you to cook. But why bother when you are so close to great restaurants at affordable prices.
Take the elephator to the ivory tower on Level 3. Third floor has recently been refurbished and offers rooms with walls to the ceiling, ensuites in private rooms, separate unisex bathrooms and usual white dull clean walls.
In summary, we are not the most glamorous of hostels but do offer clean, basic and jumbo value for money beds in a second to none location. Our staff are helpful and friendly unless you get trunk on premises and then they throw you out.
