    This hostel is probably the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in, the staff are constantly cleaning the kitchen and communal areas. The beds are comfy and the free breakfast is a great touch! Location is perfect as well, although not great if you have a car, but I guess that is just Melbourne.

    Awesome place to stay if you want to be in the city. The location is great, plenty of food and shops around. Staff are friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and didn’t have any issues at all with cleanliness. If you are a light sleeper though I wouldn’t recommend staying here because there is music playing in the building until the early hours Besides the loud music, this hostel is excellent and great value for money.

    Very Good

    Cramped room, a bit stinky when we got there. They mix travelers with long term stayers (workers) which is not great, especially when it seems like there would be a lot of free rooms in the building. Pretty strict on the checkin at 2pm but that’s a lot of hostels these days. The location is perfect, and the people that work there were very nice though.
