    The vibe of the common space and huge kitchen was friendly and inviting. The bunks comfortable and bathrooms immaculate. I will definitely be back.

    Great place, lovely staff. Music from downstairs is really really loud though, hard to get to sleep without ear plugs. The bass is still insane though. Overall a clean and friendly place.

    We enjoyed our stay at Flinders very much. Staff were great, location was great. We enjoyed the breakfast, however there were not options for dietary needs (GF). Storage was not much in the rooms- medium size wooden lockers, however needed your own lock and otherwise plastic tubs under the bed to use (no lid or way to lock). Showers had great pressure. Bunk beds were really wobbly so you could feel any time the person above/under you moved and ladders felt a bit unstable. Would stay again.

    Good value accommodation in Melbourne CBD. Staff are great and facilities quite clean and in decent condition. Main issue was room was very noisy from street noise - couldn't sleep until nearly 2am because of all the yelling and screaming from the streets - ear plugs required!

    Super convenient location in Melb CBD and staff are very helpful! The shared toilet could be dirty in the morning after the midnight crowd, but otherwise the staff do a great job cleaning it in late morning.

    I stayed a year ago and love it, so I decided to go back. Best location, and cheap. However, it is not as clean as before, especially the rooms. I think it is because the shortage of cleaners, rather than their efficiency. It is a big hostel and there are way more travellers than last year. The bathrooms were clean though. I would recommend it if you are looking for location and value for your money. I basically wanted a place to crash after a long day visiting the city. Friendly staff and free

    Overall good experience. Nice kitchen and nice with free breakfast. As a solo traveler I met some nice people. Unfortunately I found it difficult to find other people who were new in Melbourne. It seemed like the majority of the people in the hostel LIVED there. I also found the age gap between people staying there particularly big. On my fist night I found myself staying in a room with three grown men above 50.

    An okay place in the CBD Location was great, right across Flinders station Cleanliness was average, atmosphere didn’t exist but it may be because of the time of the year A little too expensive for what you get
