This was the worst hostel I've ever stayed in. Its filthy, riddled with bed bugs and cockroaches (including in the kitchen) and has inadequate facilities. The staff on the whole were nice enough (apart from the night manager my first night who threatened to give another guest a black eye) but they don't seem to care at all. The sheets were grey and dirty, and they managed to overbook the filthy dorm I was in. Do NOT stay here!


Dirty, cockroaches, bed bugs... wouldn't stay there again!


It's allright. Cheap, average hostel with ok facilities. Slept in the 10bed dorm and it was really dirty. Some of the securitylockers was broken so had to shear with my friend, which was ok but still.! I got bedbugs in my first bed and after three nights I switched bed but when I woke up I had even more bites.. Stayed at the hostel in the beginning of January so the tempature was over 40 degrees and I was melting. Didn't have ac or not even a fan! I didn't liked it and I'm not that picky..

Don't believe in the pictures!! It was the dirtiest hostel i've ever been! The bathrooms are disgusting, even when they were "cleaned".


Beds and mattresses were needing replaced as they were in awful condition.


This hostel was not very clean at all. All facilities very old and worn out. Though, staff was very friendly and location was great.


This is the second time we have stayed with Melbourne Connection hostel and once again the staff were lovely! They were always very helpful and did their best to make our stay great. Although you get what you pay for in terms of rooms (Which wasn't a bad thing!) and though the cleanliness was sometimes not that great in the bathrooms, it was a result of other people who were staying. Not the staff who kept it clean when they could.
