  • I may be slightly biased because i booked Melville at the last minute after having a really bad experience at another hostel. So...i was extremely relieved to get here. The staff are so professional and friendly and very available to help with any questions. I stayed in the 6 person dorm and loved that they were all single beds..a much more comfortable setting than bunk beds. The other guests were so nice and I ended up hanging out with them a lot. Definitely recommend this spot.

  • The hostel was clean and well-kept. Staff was always helpful with any questions, concerns and taxi arrangements I had. The location is not bad either. A few minutes walk to lots of bars, restaurants and stores. The room was smaller than I expected but very affordable and convenient. (I booked both beds because I travel with a lot of things!) The staff and owner were great as well. Thanks Peter!
