  • In general was a good hostel. The rooms were clean and the stuff worries to keep them clean, excelent bathrooms, individual. The kitchen I think is small for the quantity of people who live in the hostel.

  • Some of the staff were excellent and very helpful while others were simply "ok". The bathrooms were very clean and moderate. My only issue was with security. The lockers are too small and virtually anyone has access to the key for the "bag lock up". Half the time the key is in on the counter and very easy for someone to grab and head to the lock up area and take whatever they want. I also realize most people aren't like that - it should be much harder for someone to steal your stuff if they are.

  • Good vibe, excellent kitchen, very clean, bar downstairs with cheap beer and wine. The staff is helpful and friendly. Quieter than staying in the CBD but still really close to everything. No free wifi but cafe next door does when open. Good for young travelers and especially solo.

  • This is one of my favourite hostels ever! The staff was very friendly, the building has a lot of character and is very clean, and the people are nice. It was a nice mix social activities and a quiet place to sleep! The walk to town was also really reasonable -- I barely even used the free trolley!

  • Staying at the hostel played a huge part in making my stay in Melbourne a GREAT experience! The people there were so nice, the staff as well as the travelers. The hostel was very clean and beautiful. And as a whole, the atmosphere was very homely and chilled: perfect for a stay in Melbourne!

  • We got a room that was too close to the pub outside, and it was rather noisy until it closes around midnight. Other than that, the staff were friendly and responsive to queries. Kudos for that.
