    Very happy stay, good people running a good business. Would love to see an outlet and wall shelf next to each bed so charging is a little easier. Otherwise, spectacular stay, thanks all that work there. A+++ Service

    Loved my stay at this hostel ! Very sociable and everyone I met was was so so friendly. Staff were brilliant too, and loved the different events on each night ! Amazing location right next to Southern Cross Station and fellow bus/tram stops to get more central / or away towards St Kilda. Would definitely stay again :)

    It was a really good experience. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The room was clean and organize. The best thing is if someone arrives before check-in time, they allow you to leave your luggage in a room there. So, you will be able to begin the trip comfortable.

    Too much stairs, don't feel safe enough at night. A drunk guy screamed at night, the sound on the aisle was clear. Location is good. Not enough toilet rolls, some ppl are nice and friendly.

    Place is pretty grotty, I was picking my bag up next to a pile of toenail clippings. The breakfast is as basic as it gets, would rather not bother. The place is noisy as the downstairs area stays open until the early hours and the windows are thin so often hear people screaming outside. The beds are smelly and gross, so many stains and super creaky so get woken up a lot through the night. Wouldn’t recommend if you want a place to get some sleep.

    The people living in the room were Australian strippers and international students. No fellow backpackers to talk too. I didn’t feel safe to leave any of my belongings out. There were hairs on my bed but I arrived late at night so I was too tired to have them changed. The room was boiling hot. The man at reception kindly moved me into another room for a few hours so the staff are lovely. Location is great.
