A nice hostel - we just stayed one night. It is convenient to the city and close to trams and trains. The staff are friendly and helpful. Our room was a 4 bed dorm which was a good size and really quiet as we were at the back. Big lockers in the room and hooks. Only one plug socket away from the beds which was the only negative. Lots of toilets and showers - never a queue. The hostel was full but it was quiet and there was no disturbance or noise. Great breakfast including the pancakes.

I guess they are tearing this location down, but until they do - it's a great hostel. The toilets actually flush, very social atmosphere - can get loud in the evenings, yummy pancakes for breakfast - you have to get up early though or the line gets long to cook them, a fun bar downstairs. Clean for the most part - carpets in rooms were kind of old and gross, super nice showers, organized fridge, really great/helpful staff. Sad they are closing, but glad they have another location!

Nice place to stay, it is very close to train and tram stations. The breakfast is quite good and bathrooms are really fine. It is not that a big deal, but they don't have enough cups to be used you have to either buy or rent. The entry looks a bit trashy, at first i thought i was at the wrong place.

Nice hostel, great staff. Close to markets (Aldi) and free tram. Huge bathrooms with plenty of toilettes and showers. Rooms ok but windows not close so in Winter cold. No AC, very small TV room but free pancakes in the morning is a blast!

The hostel was good, but not so clean, as long it is only cleaned once a week. In general, everything wad Ok, the staff is friendly, Internet a little bit expensive and have a great location, near the Victoria Market

Decent place! They have a reading room, which is really nice if people in your room are sleeping or being loud. Enjoyed my stay.

Definitely a great place to stay. Only thing wrong was the room temperature. I was freezing my ... of. In the kitchen it was fine dough. Probably not going to be a problem in the summer time.

Awesome location, nice atmosphere, the taps are shrieking like crazy in the women's bathrooms though. Kitchen always spotless, but stoves don't get hot enough. Good cleaning staff, nice reception staff who is really motivated to make a good impression on people. A certain Irish night receptionist got way more relaxed and easygoing since the last time I've been there (and reviewed). He's also kinda goodlooking. The place is my favourite place to stay in Melbourne, highly recommended.
