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 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.

Frendly staff and nice people. Looks like a prison, and there is really dirty. The white walls are grey because of dust. Good location :)

The location was very close to the main bus station and close to the city center. The hostel is quite messy and the floors look like they have beer been swept. The dorm beds were rickety and the only outlets were away from the beds which made it difficult for a person on the top bunk to charge their phone and use it as an alarm.

The room smell like musty and moldy. Not enough ventilation. The shower floor should be desinfect it daily and sometimes didn't smell clean. Also this property have rats. I will recommend to hire a Pest Control company to get rid of the rat smell.
