    Superb

    Room was a little smelly, but I guess that's what I get for booking a 8 person mixed! Atmosphere rocked!! It was really easy to meet people while I was traveling solo. I do wish they let you BYOB it to common areas or rooms (maybe this is a Melbourne thing as other hostels did the same.. go up the coast for the party!). However, they do have some of the cheapest drinks in town downstairs at the bar. Would stay here again if back in Melbourne.

    Great stay at United - everyone was super friendly and a nice mix of long tremors, and travellers. Was super clean and 4 bed dorm really spacious too. Lost and Found bar is great and pretty cheap, and there is always something on if you want to make friends as a solo traveller like me!

    Good

    Pros: convenient and within the free tram zone area. Getting to main attractions was easy and fast. Kitchen is well equipped and a nice area to chill out Cons: bunk bed is uncomfortable and shakes when I move around in my bed. En-suite toilet was nice and big. No hair dryer provided. Atmosphere seems to be abit rowdy. No free WiFi in the rooms. Which is really ridiculous because most hostels I stay in provide free WiFi in the rooms. WiFi was only available in the common room and kitchen.
