    I enjoyed my stay at Discovery Melbourne. As I arrived to check it, they had some wonderful music playing in the background. I couldn't help myself to sing along and patiently groove as I wait to be served at the desk.

    Great location, friendly staff, clean rooms. Having renovation work currently which is a bit disrupting. One thing that really bothered me is the use of single use plastic in the kitchen, plastic cutlery & cups & lack of recycling - could be doing more for this planet!! But overall good value for money.

    Reception area is very dirty and the hostel itself is very secluded making it hard to find. You’ll feel like someone is about to sell you heroin as you walk down the alley way. It’s a pleasant surprise to reach the dorm floors and realize the place isn’t so dirty after all, at least not on my level 1. The rooms were clean as well although a tight squeeze. The doors are really loud and the hallways echo so I do not recommend if you’re a light sleeper. The beds are so comfy and there’s sockets.

    Look, if you’re staying here you will be paying less but you will be staying in sub-par conditions. My first room was nice (1st floor) and pretty clean. The second room I was put in was so filthy there wasn’t even a space on the floor to put my suitcase, reception then moved me to a slightly less filthy room but as there is lots of long-term guests, people do not clean up after themselves. Kitchens are always grim, bathrooms are okay. Best thing is 5 min walk to central. No chill out area.

    I am so thankful that I only stayed one night. There are so many things wrong with this place. First: the hostel does not match the pictures at all. The hostel is located in a dodgy street and when you walk in it is a mess. It doesn’t looks clean and the building looks old and rundown. Second: you cannot drink past 10pm in the common space which isn’t a problem whatsoever, however the staff told us that we are ruining our lives by drinking and that we are going down the wrong path.

    If you want to try out a prison for a night, then this is your place. I understand that its cheap, but I have stayed in places cheaper than this and not felt like I was in the latest episode of Wentworth. The room was very basic. Beds squeaked and kept the room awake. The shower was cold and spat water everywhere, and with no where to hang my clothes they were made very wet. The "Common" area / hall was the most uncomfortable place Ive ever seen This place needs a serious upgrade, Never again.

    The biggest catfish I’ve ever stayed at. Looks nothing like the pictures and should be discounted due to the constant construction, lack of facilities, and constant emergency alarms and water cut offs.

    The whole hostel was under construction, very loud construction. Common areas were directly outside of the sleeping dorms. The pictures do not match the property. It's basically dorms with fold up tables and chairs right outside your room. No alcohol at all after 10pm. And because of the lack of common space everyone sits outside in the alley and drinks until late along with security.
