Excellent hostel with good central location and friendly, helpful staff. Excellent kitchen, common areas, and roof terrace. Good clean bathrooms. A very modern facility with super comfortable beds and a good nights sleep. I would definitely recommend.
Cool place. Comfy beds. Right in the middle of everything. The location is phenomenal and allows you to easily get the most out of your stay in Melbourne. Great free events and meals. Little cliquey for such a big hostel but nonetheless very friendly. Best choice in Melbourne in my opinion.
Really helpful staff and nice environment

the Wifi was not working at all when I stayed there Other than that the hostel is very good located, quiet and clean.
The wifi is free but very slow. The kitchen is very well equipped but many guests just don't care to wash their own dishes and the kitchen is closed for cleansing for the mess from 21:30-23:30. For those who were having a late dinner, they can only left dishes on table. I'd suggest to close the kitchen half an hour later. That's better for the cleansing staff and us.
This is a really nice hostel and excellent location on the opposite of central station. Nice staff and higher security, not expensive, good place to stay.
Greenhouse Backpacker was a nice place to stay and good location, very near to train and bus station and shopping malls. Will be staying there again, when I'm back o Melbourne.

Living in the room with many long tenants, a bit messy and never see cleaners vacuums in room, a bit worry there will be bugs. Hope the hostel can monitor the hygiene of long tenants.
Awesome! I stayed for 2 nights in a private room. As we were only here for 2 nights and only using it for sleeping, it was the perfect choice of accommodation. cheap and affordable. it was very clean as well! The hostel is in the perfect location, so close to public transport, river, and shops. The staff were friendly and very helpful and friendly. Thanks!
Excellent location, just a block from Flinders street station, big kitchen, clean rooms and bathrooms. But the soundproof of rooms isn't good, people laughing and playing in another room can be heard easily.
Absolutely fantastic. Great location. Quiet. And lots of activities organized by the hostel, such as walking tour, pub crawl, and football game. Don't forget the free pasta dinner on Tuesday night.
