    United Backpackers were great. I was traveling with a friend who was skeptical about staying in a hostel, but even she was happy with our stay. There were no complications on check-in and check-out, and we even got an unexpected upgrade to a 4-person room. The hostel is central to many attractions and transportation in the city. The price is so low for what we got out of our stay.

    It's really central to everything in Melbourne and the staff is really helpful. But the lack of AC in the rooms makes it VERY stuffy and difficult to sleep comfortably. It's also mostly people who are there on a work visa for a long term stay, so it can be hard to find people to explore with.

    Hostel in a great location & central. Unfortunately two male staff members in the reception were rude & intimidating. Both repeatedly pressured me to book onto tours so they could get commission. I pushed back repeatedly but their behaviour was unacceptable. They “mansplained” & tried to pressure me to travel at a pace which I was not comfortable. In this day and age, not acceptable. Younger female travellers may have been negatively affected by this. Being told I was “difficult” isn’t on.

    Due to location being right in the CBD it is very loud at night due to street noise. I was here for 5 nights and I barely got any sleep due to the street noise, as well as my roommates being inconsiderately loud. Bathroom facilities were clean and I enjoyed the free pancakes in the morning. One of the toilets on my floor was out of order the entire duration I was there so there was always a line for the bathroom somewhere. If you want to stay somewhere that is quiet, then this is not the place.

    The hostel is ok but BE AWARE the reception runs a SCAM scheme where they will PRESSURE YOU TO BUY a buss pass, Fraser Island or Whitsunday tours. They tell you it’s always sold out and magically it’s available. They are affiliated to Happy Travels. They take advantage of you because your a backpacker and your guard is down. They say their helping you plan you - they are not - they are the lowest kind of human beings, they sell you things which cost double the price compared too other websites
