I spent one night at the hostel after a long distance flight from Europe. I checked in at about 11pm. The counter was staffed by very friendly and helpful Luke and check-in was uncomplicated and quick. The shower and the room was alright. The room had a socket for my phone near my bed, so that was good, the bed comfy and with a warm doona (winter!), room mates considerate in my 4 bed dorm. The shower was not modern but reasonably clean, water was hot, felt great. Breakfast from 4:30am, great!

Checked in and locked our bags up only to have hostel staff break the expensive lock to our locker and remove our bags. Staff were confused and unhelpful with no offer to refund us for the lock

Staff were so friendly and are the best thing about the place. Rooms and bathrooms are disgusting. Location is pretty decent too

Breakfast was included but was very very simple. Bathrooms were not clean, heaps of hair and smelled like urine. After telling the staff, they cleaned it; but it was better if they would clean it on beforehand. More sockets in the 16 bed-dorms would be nice. Only had 4 sockets for 16 beds. Overall - had a nice stay, location is perfect and staff is very friendly.

Pros: Location is almost perfect walking from Southern Cross Station. Atmosphere is relaxing. Cons: No Wifi access in the room and you have to be in lobby to conncect the Wifi. No way to hang the dry clothes in your room and the clothes are not dried even if they are put there for 2 whole days. Not enough sockets in one room and the one on the upper bunk will not enjoy his own socket but use the one near the ground. Very inconvenient. Bed sounds like it is going to collapse anytime.

The dorm room was small and crammed. There was a locker for each bed but weren't big enough to fit bags so the floor was basically covered. The beds themselves were average and the place didn't have the tidiest feel. However staff were super friendly and big common area! Vibe was quite, seemed like a lot of international students waiting to find houses. It is in a good location - near the station, which is why we chose it. But wouldn't stay again. Been to nicer places in Melbs for less cash.
