Like many people said, it felt like a lot of long-termers here--or it least verged on one of the more antisocial hostels I've stayed in. The location is fantastic, close to Chinatown and a good jumping off point for many cool spots. The facilities felt a little outdated and grungy, though they seemed to make it a point to keep everything clean and secure. Room was on the small side. I probably wouldn't stay here again, but I can see why people might choose it.

Windows didn't shut properly which meant the room was freezing cold and you could also hear the traffic from the noisy road the whole night. The room was also really messy from long stayers and the whole place creaked. Can't comment on other variables as wasn't there more than one night.

The wifi doesn't work very well, so it was annoying. Especially when you need it to book your tours or communicate with family and friends

Very good hostel. Clean and nice bathrooms everywhere, big kitchen with many staff, nice discounts for the bar. Located near a park and close to the CBD. Only bad things : the wifi, which is very slow and disconnected every 5 mins, and the free computer you have to pay 1 dollar for 15 mins...

The "no drinking or you get kicked out" thing was a bit extreme...if they have had that many problems, then maybe better security and harsh punishment for being too drunk would be better. Felt like the old creaky stairs were about to fall from under me.

I have stayed in many different hostels around Canada / US / Europe, and this Melbourne hostel is nothing special. Fairly average in most respects, the standout for me would be cleanliness, and the worst part was the"free wifi" which was extremely slow if you could get it to work at all, luckily the large state library is fairly close and has excellent wifi for when you need to plan the next part of your trip. (or just send an email!)

Great location and hostel, the staff were lovely. My only advice is to get the long term stays to be a bit more neat, they seemed to be exempt from the keep belongings in backpacks or trays rule.

The kitchen is tiny it's always so busy, not practical for a hostel of this size, the wifi is awful and doesn't work majority of the time. There is no common area just a couch underneath both of the stairs which means there is nowhere really to socialise other than the bar. The lockers are only big enough for small bags which isn't ideal. There are some private toilets which is nice and it is close to the team line but I really don't get the hype about this hostel.

The hostel looks great and does feel like a home. Location is good, right next to the trams/trains. Nice staff and good rooms. But no plugs next to your bed which is annoying.
