Landing Pads Brunswick, Melbourne, Australia
10th Oct 2013

If you're planning on staying in a hostel in Melbourne, I strongly recommend Landing Pads. I've stayed in other hostels in Melbourne, including a hostel in Brunswick, and Landing Pads leaves them for dead. The atmosphere was very friendly, and Matt, the care taker, incredibly helpful. Don't be put off by the fact that Landing Pads is in Brunswick rather than the city itself. Brunswick is a fun suburb in it's own right, and only about 15 minutes by tram or train to the CBD.

Victoria Hotel Backpackers, Melbourne, Australia
24th Sep 2013

The door to the dorm room in which I was staying was almost always open or unlocked. Guests should be told to lock their room doors when they leave their rooms. The kitchen area was rarely clean during my stay. One of the shower blocks had a poorly attached shower rose; another had a lock that, once locked, was very difficult to reopen. The bedding provided to guests was minimal and of a poor quality. The manager evicted tenants (not me) late one night by screaming loud abuse and banging doors.
