Greenhouse Backpackers was ok but a bit too expensive for the amount of stuff you get. The breakfast is mediocre and the staff is really pushy about removing everything from the breakfast at 9am promptly so if you are in the queue to toast your bread, be ready to eat it plain because they won't wait. The staff wasn't friendly or helpful about anything, but the place is uber secure which is great but I just really didn't care for the clientele/environment there.

Reception Staff weren't particularly helpful and moaned about how tough there day was going. The kitchen was filthy and didn't look like it ever got cleaned. The positioning was good though really in the bustle of Melbourne with some great cafes around the corner and plenty to do

Has good facilities and good location. Clean showers/toilets. Really noisy at night from sounds from Swanston St. Room was tiny though. Had a person in my room who lives there and had taken over half the room by setting up his own esky and TV. There were dirty dishes left on the floor which caused the room to stink. Full of old people too

Perfect location, the walking tours were amazing, Shannon was a wonderful guide. However I found the staff at the front desk not as friendly. Rooms were clean and same as bathrooms, lots of space in the rooms as well

i really love this place! its right at the center of CBD and only 3 min walks to subway! The only downside was there were some kids from another that talk super loudly at 1am for more than 20min! which very inconsiderate of them. Other than that, i will highly recommend this place and they do provide free pasta on every Tuesday evening!!! :)

Very nice place. Events organised, free dinner on Tuesday was nice. Plenty of room on the first floor with computers, plug sockets, kitchen, tables and sofas. Access card gets you onto your floor and the room. Only slight improvements I would make - having a mop outside the showers so you dry the floor, there were 4 plugs in our room for 6 people, which wasn't enough. There are more on the first floor though. The ladders to the bunk beds were quite painful on your feet and handrail not secure
