Very lovely and homelike hostel situated in the cool Brunswick area. I really enjoyed this small hostel after the big ones in CBD. My room was just renovated as well as the showers. Staff is very friendly and downstairs bar good value for money. This is the kind of hostel where you feel at home and want to stay longer than you booked for.

Victoria hostel is a welcoming and friendly place. You get a free drink when checking in. The place si cleaned every monday but they also make sure to keep it tidy. Monday is actually the best day there cause you also get a free bbq and it's a great way to meet people and make friends ( plus free food come oooon). Brunswick may not be the best neighborhood in Melbourne but Victoria hostel makes it better.

Very quiet at night which was awesome for us. Kitchen was so small..if there were lots of people staying at this hostel there would be no cutlery and everyone would be fighting over the one stove..I think we saw 4 bowls for the whole place. Staff seemed to be a little confused about what was going on. One person says one thing, another person has no idea what your talking about. The bed we had was uncomfortable..we're not 10yr olds who can sleep on those anymore.

Revolting sink inches away from the bed. Thick dust everywhere. Mouldy fridge in the room. Kitchen looked like it hadn't been cleaned in weeks. Constant smell of cigarette smoke with the occasional wiff of weed. Guests arriving at nearly 3am screaming and singing. Left 2 days early as a result.
