    Very Good

    Good location in the heart of CBD, the sad thing is that the kitchen isn’t 24 and it opens at 9am which means you won’t be able to use it if you are leaving in the early morning. Other thing is that there’s only one small shared bathroom (2 shower) each floor which might lead to a long wait sometimes.

    Very grim hostel, I scratched all night in my bed while listening to traffic outside. No soap was in the bathroom which and a lack of sanitiser didn’t feel as Covid-safe as other Melbourne hostels I stayed in. Staff were nice but I would not stay here again.

    Did not enjoy my stay. Have to walk 10min to flinders street and main activities. Free lunch but little option, cheap cereals, bread and milk. One of the staff was a slack (uk) My room was full of weirdos and one rude Aussie who made a woman leaving the room at night time... No activity inside but watching preselected movie or ping pong you have to go to town. Bathroom was clean but too small and outdated. Kitchen was really small, nowhere to sit, no sanitiser. Not happy at all.
