    Great place to stay despite the current circumstances! The staff were super helpful. Payhton was amazing at sorting my stay info out and making me feel super welcome and at ease checking in. Simon brightened up my day every time I saw him. He really went above and beyond in making my stay a pleasurable experience. And Ash and Isaac went out of their way to get me a quiet space to do my zoom study and work which I really appreciated. Amazing crew, thank you so much for a great stay!

    Best. Hostel. In Melbourne. And it's not even close. Beds are great. Rooms are clean. Location is perfect. You will meet tons of new friends and staff is incredible. Shout-out to Isaac, Pahyton, Luke, Georgia and Wally, Josh, Liam, Boi and others for making my stay one of the best. The Red Eye bar downstairs has incredible atmosphere, good music, cheap drinks, and different events 5 days out of 7. I cannot recommend this place enough.

    Great place to stay. Staff were most helpful and friendly. Kitchen was okay. Could do with some coffee tables where the couch is. I also would like to see recycle bins. Most of us recycle at home now. So why not in Hostels?
