Property Information:

Hi Guys

Time to Jazz this up a bit and address the Elaphant in the room ;)

We are Melbourne's cheapest hostel, The reason for this is that we are an old building 150 years next year :)
So we do have a few leaky taps.
We have been renovating and converting our place from a bar into a hostel for the last 16 month and now we are finally done (Now its time to jazz it up and add some fun stuff :)

The reason i am mentioning this is because we have accumulated quite a few negative reviews (Slated haha ;)

So We wanted to tell you a little more about us

We are a family run business and all of our staff are former guests who live on site and are happy to help any time
We believe in family values and treat all of our guests like family, so if you ever have any problems with anything at all, related or unrelated to your stay than come and see us

We might be the cheapest hostel but we are not cheap on value, we provide to all of our guests
:Free WIFI
:Free secure locker with lock
:Fridge bag for your food
If you need to print your flight tickets etc thats free to just ask

We specialize in people who are late arrivals.
If you arrive out side of our opening hours (930-430) than we will put your keys in our late check in safe and send you an sms with the details and we have a live on site night manager just for you

The Rules:
We arnt ogres, we know that most people are here on holidays and want to play up haha, that being said there are people who need to go to work.
Our upstairs rooms are what we deem the 'quite zone' after 10 its a no go zone for noise
Downstairs its ok to be about your socializing at a social level until about 1
And our down stairs rooms are more for these tenants

What we have:
We have a massive lounge room with tv and games (its the old band area its huge!)
An out side court yard that has couches and benches also quite a big space
Reception area is where a lot of people hang out to chat with us and has couches as well and if you need to you can plug straight into the internet

We also cater to large interstate kids sports teams 3 times a year

This is who we are guys and the 'Elephant' uncovered ;)

We look forward to seeing you
And please, everyone who enjoys their stay ... leave us a review
