  • I'd highly rececommend MIB for any backpackers out there that want the 'Bang to your bucks' accommodation experience in Melbourne. Friendly staff, clean kitchen and bathroom, and not to mention a central location to multiple attractions in the area. Most of the guests living there are Work-Travel visa holders that would stay for few months, and most of them are very approachable and friendly.

  • Bathrooms were absolutely filthy. Sheets were dirty and the room had a strong damp stale smell that was really unpleasant.

  • The cleaning staff wake people up, being really noisy when they come in to the rooms, they take the curtains aside, it's like having a second mom when your surpose to go to school as a teen! And they clean the bathrooms in the most busy time a day in the morning, why not do it at 12 not 9-11 stupid, and they close the thing down for so long!!! But I like they take the rules really serious no guy in female room and not two people in one bed! Good! :-)

  • 10 points for the charwomen - they do a very good job in the bathrooms etc.!! Poor staff at reception. They are one of the slowest receptionists I have ever seen. The rest of the hostel is good.
