    Great atmosphere especially boozy bingo on Mondays, good laundry facilities and double room with en-suite was pleasant and pretty clean. Kitchen/ downstairs communal area was spacious but very unclean and spotted a few cockroaches. Cutlery/ plates were always dirty.

    Great atmosphere, and activities made it really easy to meet people. Was the first place I went to when I landed in Aus and I’m so glad I chose here! Made some great friends. Isaac and Noam on the front desk were super helpful. Also great travel desk to plan how to do my east coast trip. Only issue was cleanliness - bathrooms in particular were dirty and never mopped. The kitchen too needed some love and attention. Will definitely come back if I’m Melbourne again though:)

    The shower was extremely mouldy. It looked like black mould, all over the tiles in the shower.

    This place was a little further outside of the city than was advertised, though it is in a pretty cool neighborhood. Our room and bathroom specifically were really filthy (like chunks of hair and dirt everywhere) when we got there, and the wifi was out for our entire 5 day stay which was honestly super inconvenient :/ Other than that the hostel is pretty lively.

    My room was really dirty since I arrived and than I went to the reception ask if someone usually clean the rooms. He said yes everyday. next day the room still dirty with banana peels on the floor and a lot of rubbish. I went back to the reception and the person there was really rude.
