    Really chill place. Lots of crew hanging out in the back courtyard most of the day. I would have stayed here if they weren't booked out over the weekend.

    Really enjoyed my stay here, everyone was really nice and it was such an interesting building with good outdoor areas to relax in. It's a good location, a short walk to Chapel Street and there are bus and tram links not far away. I never had any noise problems and it was really good value compared to some other hostels I've been in!

    Great location for Albert Park for the F1. Very tired hostel, could do with refurbishment. A high percentage of long term residents but a majority were nice.

    I liked the place and found someone I like also. But there was an issue with someone local. He decided to complaint about a lil argument he just decided to start and I stayed neutral. And asked him what's wrong with you. He just like telling me you be kick out tomorrow. I ask what was the issue they just reply someone complaint and two others. But I really didn't say or do anything to them. He was actually a friend and he just decided to complaint for what. I am unsure if I'll ever see this girl

    I really did not like this place. It's mostly fill of long term stayers who have their stuff everywhere and you feel like you are invading. Atmosphere didn't seem right for someone new to melbourne. Staff and people were nice enough though. It was so unclean and I'm not even that fussed as long as it's a basic kind of clean. I've been in many hostels but this was one of their dirtest. The coakroches in my bed were the final straw. I left early and would not recommend.

    Overall this was a bad experience. The staff were rude, snappy and inappropriate. We were trying to cook in the kitchen they were hovering over us swearing and gossiping about other guests. The hostel is overall very filthy, I don’t usually get allergies at hostels but I did here because of the amount of dust on the premises. We were promised pizza and beer and found the staff had hogged it all to themselves. The room also smelt like cat pee. The atmosphere was very cliquey. Would not recommend.
