    Superb

    15 May 2018
    I really like united! I’ve moved to check out another hostel for the time being but 100% coming back once my stay here is finished! It’s a really central location so great for manoeuvring around the city. Everyone is really friendly and there’s loads of opportunities to be social- great place to first stay when you arrive in Melbourne to get you settled :)

    Prime location. Such friendly staff. Great place to meet people in. Everyone in the hostel is so friendly and social. Awesome facilities. Was meant to stay only for one night, but extended for a week then came back for another stay. One of my favorites.
