I had a blast, or as an australian would say: heaps of fun :) the location is perfect, just at Melbourne Flinders Station, CBD. As soon as you are in the kitchen/common area, you get the friendly atmosphere, everyone is sitting together chatting

Flinders backpackers had an awesome location which was right in the Center of everything. Everything about my stay was great except for one member of the staff that treated us like children. This hostel has a strict no alcohol in the room/no noise after 10pm policy. If the staff suspects you are having a "party" aka 8 guests just casually playing games in one of the 4 bedrooms, they will storm in, treat you like children, and make you follow them downstairs for a warning. NOT IMPRESSED.

My second time in Melbourne and this was in SUCH a better location Slap-bang in the centre so perfect for arriving from the station and easy to sight-see/shop/party. Reception staff are lovely and helpful. Lockers in dorms, huge kitchen and common areas dotted around for socialising. Would recommend.

Great spot, close to everything, generally clean and tidy. Very friendly staff, and quite an intense atmosphere, certainly a good place to stay if you are looking to meet new people.

This is for young people who like to party and interact with new people. Very loud outside of building/can be hard to sleep.

Great hostel and great people Highlight is the free breakfast which includes make your own pancakes and there's also toast and cereal. Stayed in a 16 bed dorm and it was very spacious Also kitchen is pretty clean and the fridge is huge Negatives: You have to pay to store luggage Dorms not clean - the 16 bed I stayed in smelt horrible - needs some fresh air in there

Really busy, party hostel. Rooms were alright, but there are only two outlets for four people. Rooms are very stuffy and warm, couldn't keep the window open because the street is too loud. Great location.

Great start to my Oz trip. It couldn't be in a better location as you're right in the thick of it. My room was road facing so very noisy as trams stop late and start early but that's the pay-off for being so central. Kitchen could've been cleaner but not bad. Free pancakes every morning was fab, though some people who took full advantage of serving themselves as many as they liked, meant the queue was always crazy long. Some monitoring of this would have eased congestion.

Busy, industrial-strength operation but still pretty friendly. Nice video room, walk-in fridge (never seen that in a hostel before but appropriate given the volume), 16-bed dorm is quite spacious. Check out their website for *weekly* rates. (For some reason, HostelWorld won't list them.) Nice free breakfast including Wheatabix & muesli!
