bed was very comfy, room was spacious enough even for a 12 bed mixed, lockers for each person although you need your own padlock. staff are very friendly and helpful, it is a social enough hostel with the common room getting quite busy in the evenings and the bar downstairs. didn't use the kitchen so cannot comment on that. location is great, right by Flinders train station. bathrooms also kept clean, with some individual toilet/showers on some floors. one of the better hostels in Melbourne

Amazing hostel! Very clean and great common areas. Also kitchen is big and they are trying their best to keep everything clean. One of the best hostels I’ve stayed in so far. Perfect location close to all the sights. Met amazing people here and had lots of fun. Private bathrooms in level 10 are highly appreciated. Only downside is the elevators. There’s only 2 and it takes forever… but taking the stairs is also possible and a good workout.
