It was a good hostel and a wonderful building! The free tram is just 2 min away! The stuff was very nice but I think the atmosphere was not so good. I can't say why!

The room was a lot smaller then what l thought plus other budget motels charge the same price but have there own toilet and shower in the room.

Recently stayed for 2 weeks and enjoyed a pleasant stay. Not too far from the CBD (city to newbies) and the building itself was beautiful. They even had a PS3 and DVDs for (free) rental. I moved on to another hostel as there wasn't really much of a communal area to socialise in and the kitchen, as clean as it was, was a little too small. Would still recommend highly though as the staff, Lauren, Saskia and Ben were very nice and welcoming throughout!

Ive stayed here on two ocassions. This hostel is just outside the CBD which is ideal for peace and quiet, 10-15 mins walk, 5 mins tram to CBD. Mainly long tearmers here meaning its a relaxed hostel. Free tram nearby to CBD and beach. Hostel was always clean including the private bathrooms. TVs in dorm rooms too! Staff are super friendly too! Try a 7 bed dorm as you may get a single bed to yourself. Reccomend for a quiet stay in Melbourne. Nice gardens nearby too! The bar downstairs is good price

I really liked staying in this hostel. Its just a 3 min. walk to the free tram zone. The rooms were big enough. The staff was great. I really liked the private bathrooms. There was even a PlayStation available with Fifa!! I highly recommend staying here.

Great place to stay if you're coming to Melbourne! The staff are awesome, the place itself is one of the cleanest hostels I've stayed at and I met a great group of people while I was here. The place itself is right by the free tram zone to the CBD, and its a short walk to Bruswick street which has some pretty good bars. There's also a bar/cafe attached to the hostel which does $5 pints and spirits on Sundays, it's a good place to meet other guests. Internet is pretty cheap, $5 for the day.

The kitchen was filthy and common areas not inviting. Guests are expected to make their own beds which was a hassle arriving late in a dorm room and the beds/linen did not look clean. I expected a bit more from the reviews but will not be staying here again.

Great staff, very helpful and very supportive. there is only one kitchen and it is too small for such a big hostel. there is no common area in a sense that you sit down with other travellers, although there is a small TV area and a small dining table, It's fairly clean and organised. however the toilets are not the cleanest by the end of the day. there is too much noise in most of the rooms as they are facing the Victoria Parade. the rooms have small windows and can get hot.

The website and impression from the outside were great. Was disappointed inside - a 'run down' feeling, basic facilities, too many long, long term stayers.

We stayed in a 4 bed dorm for 7 nights over the F1 Grand Prix weekend. Prices were a bit high because of this but I guess it's the same everywhere. The beds were comfy and there are lockers in the room for valuables too. The shared bathrooms are good with decent showers. The kitchen is ok, probably a little small for the size of the hostel. On site laundry is handy too. Its an old building so floors are creaky. It's also on a main road so it's noisy in rooms at the front of the building.

It's a long term stay flophouse. Don't expect much as a backpacker.

Great hostel, very sociable with comfortable/clean beds/bathrooms. Well equipped kitchen which staff keep on top of. Wi-Fi is a little pricey, but being our first Australian hostel think it may be pretty standard, but frustrating that it is so intermittent at best. Staff are lovely and always happy to help.

Couldn't have been a better place to stay for the 9 nights! Thanks a lot for being helpful when we needed to know close locations or transport and running a great Hostel overall. We really enjoyed our holiday and the down time was a lot better than we could expect, with good size rooms and places to eat.

It's an ok place in melbourne. Place looks better from the outside than in. If you stay in the double room as we did it's TINY. Plus there is a lot of noise from the traffic outside. The staff are brilliant though, and really friendly.
