    Everyone was so awesome and kind! Great place to meet people as well. The beds were very clean & have charging outlets & shelves for every bunk which is a plus. Bathrooms are typically clean. Will come back again for sure(:

    This hostel was exactly what I was looking for for my trip to Melbourne. Fantastic location, chill atmosphere perfect for both those looking for travel buddies or the more introverted, and a level of cleanliness and facilities that you would expect from a good hostel. Some were complaining about having to deal with cold showers some mornings, but I did not have this issue. Would recommend!

    Spent a single night here during my stopover back to Europe. The location is great (minus the usual people you have on the street at night in any major CBD). The rooms were fine and there's an entire kitchen for you to cook your own food. I didn't really spend enough time there to judge the vibe but the common area was very busy. Only complaint is that the luggage storage is just a set of shelves in the common room. Nothing stops someone from just taking your bag, even someone not staying!

    Pretty decent hostel and was impressed by the walk-in fridge. The bed was nice and comfy, my only gripe is with the water heater in the shower as like most reviews have pointed out. On my first day I was lucky to shower with hot water but the next few days were really a game of "is the water going to suddenly turn icy" But location is really superb, right in front of the hostel is a tram stop and with several cafes within walking distance

    Good location with friendly staff. Was clean enough. However it was a bit cold in both the common areas and the bedrooms. There were also a lot of long term residents so not the best atmosphere if you are a solo traveller. Brilliant location though.

    If you’re looking for somewhere with clean showers and toilets then this isn’t it. They were pretty disgusting in my opinion. Also, when I first arrived there was a note from the hostel stuck on the door saying it smelled bad and something had to be done. Not a great first impression - and the smell and cleanliness inside the room didn’t improve for the couple of nights I stayed there.

    Your advertisement is misleading- "1 bedroom,twinshare private toilet shared." I rented 2 bedrooms, I thought I was getting a shared toilet n bathroom with my sister n husband, instead we have public toilets n bathrooms shared by 10 rooms. I felt I could have gotten a better deal from other hotels instead.

    Don't go here if you are travelling into Melbourne CBD. There are a tonne of other places much better that won't ruin your travel plans. The place was pretty poorly maintained and the staff were not helpful. The website, listings, photos were all very misleading and we didn't even end up getting to return to stay in our room because the cards stopped working. We booked a room that was no longer available and weren't given any kind of refund. Poorly managed, avoid if you can.
