I would like to suggest to put the locks in the rooms, to pay more attention on the cleaning such as pillow and sheets.


Booked because of price. Arrived to be told we had to wait for owner to go out for a coffee, for nearly an hour before finding were not in a 6-bed dorm with en suite as we booked online, instead were in the basement.. Eventually agreed to refund us a few dollars difference. Toilet/washing facilities were terrible, cubicles closed with no reasoning, no hot water, toilet paper all over the floor but none on the roll!! Had to request blankets, beds looked like something out of a holocaust film.

I'm not usually one to complain and in my years traveling throughout Asia I've stayed in many hostels and this was by far the worst place I've ever stayed, it was filthy and resembled a crack den. It was my first stop in Melbourne and I wanted to get straight back on that plane back to Asia. The rooms were very small, dingy and cold. There were empty alcohol bottles spread around the common room, It smelt disgusting and looked like a squat. I've never felt so uneasy and dirty staying in a place.


Great location, and almost enjoyed there was no free WiFi, people actually talked to each other :)


A very bad hostel which smells really bad. They don't give you a blanket so I froze. Unfriendly staff, (john). not a very vibrant place.


The stay was fine, the staff were friendly but the showers were difficult to manage due to only one shower having hot water at a time despite having three showers in the bathroom.

The worst place I've ever had the displeasure to stay, kitchen dirty with all old equipment, stoves don't work, bedrooms and bathrooms disgusting. I don't recommend, but if you want to have a nightmare.
