    Amazing atmosphere. Always something going on. Extremely helpful staff. Big shout to Simon on the front desk for being awesome. Too many other staff and non staff members to mention that made my stay a wonderful experience. Would recommend for location, facilities and helpfulness of the staff. Met some absolute legends and will definitely be back.

    Really good hostel if you're looking to party and make and meet new friends! 6 bed dorms are a bit cramped but was fine for our 3 night stay in Melbourne. Skybus drops and picks you up right outside the hostel to go to and from the airport which is really handy and makes it easy to travel. Staff were nice and overall decent stay! A bit far out from the city centre but travelling on the tram is easy

    Location is perfect - that’s biggest plus. Most of stuff was nice but one guy was just rude. Worst part - my room. I was stayin at 4 bed one. It stank like someone pee on the floor week ago. I barley managed to fall asleep - I arrive late and was staying only one night. Cannot imagine spending there more time. Beds were crappy, cheapest ones. One block away you can find way nicer ones with courtains, chargers ect. Poor value for the money - there are better places in neighbourhood.
