Cleanliness was an issue in the rooms - very dated with not enough plugs and uncomfortable bunks. Rooms do not look the way they are pictured. Breakfast very basic. Nice and friendly staff.

Was only there for one night after arriving in Melbourne late. Very convenient for bus to airport. Building very old and run-down with a creepy atmosphere. Bed was comfortable and sheets clean. No complaints

Very basic hostel, with very basic facilities. The bathrooms only had 2-3 showers in them, and relatively clean. The hostel is about 10-15minutes walk to the city centre. For the price I paid, I can't really complain.

I was place in a room sharing with someone who had been staying here for quite some times. The room was dirty and is not clean regularly. Will avoid staying here next time.

I found the reception staff very friendly and helpful in taking and passing on messages. They were very helpful in dealing with directions for tram and stations. Also card for travel. They helped to create a very friendly atmosphere even though most residents were older than me. I was travelling alone and had never stopped off in Melbourne before but I really didn't want to leave as I had been made to feel so welcome. Dormitory under the beds were not totally clean but everything else was.

It really is a great location, and I don't want to totally convince you not to stay there. BUT: 4 bed female room was so messy that I didn't know which bed was mine upon arriving, 4 flights of stairs to lug bags up, maybe two power outlets for the whole room, random older people, wifi only in common area 4 flights below, and the grossest hostel bathroom (wads of hair in shower, moldy ceiling, hadn't been updated in forever) I've ever seen. The place just needs some work for sure.
