  • Easy to get to from the centre of Melbourne. If you want somewhere quiet to stay, this isn't it. There is a very noisy pub underneath the hostel, which has events every night, and we can feel the walls vibrating from the subwoofers on the top floor of the hostel! If you want a party hostel, it's great! Wifi is free, but very patchy, especially in the bedrooms. When the hostel is full in the evenings, sometimes you can't log on. Otherwise, it's clean and the daily pancake breakfast is great!

  • Never take dorm number 115. Band playing just under and it is extremely loud every night from 8 pm till 3 am. The walls are vibrating from the music. It is like going there without really going.
