Clean, modern facilities
rubbish being emptied outside the window each morning at 5am wasn't so cool
Staff take your Food! If you leave it in the kitchen other people take it if you keep it with your luggage/belongings the staff take it!
I could go on about how awesome the location is. It's right across the road from Flinders Street Station and anything you need is pretty much a 5 mins' walk or tram ride away. It rained when I was at Federation Square, and all I had to do was make a break for it at two traffic lights (stopping in between to get lunch from Lord of the Fries) and I was home free. In addition, I really appreciated having separate bathroom shelves for each occupant, as well as a reading light and electrical outlet for the upper bunks. Small details, but they make all the difference to me!
Unfortunately, the super convenient location also means that there's a lot of traffic during most of the day (and night). Nothing too major and I could sleep reasonably well, but just putting it out there for light sleepers who may be affected.
I liked the location. Staff was excellent. Its so central. Would definitely recommend it to my friends and family.
I loved the whole experience,ive stayed here before. Staff friendly and helpful. I stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm they are very spacious and comfy...only down side is busy road outside but i get use to that. Great how get own plug socket and lamp next to each bed. Brilliant location
Clean Good facilities
Too big- very little character Crowded Not great for solo travellers
Large common area and huge kitchen. Perfect location. Friendly and comfortable
Wifi only in common area Beds squeaked a bit
Location is very good, just opposite main train station, walking distance to city central shopping area
The shower water is very cool, almost giving me a fever. The sink in my toilet was jammed and I had to go outside to brush my teeth. The mattress is uncomfortable and squeaky.
Location Cleanliness Free wifi Good atmosphere Activities available Helpful staff
Best location.Opposite train station,Yara river boat cruise pier and city circle free tram stop.Not far from day tour meeting point also.With free tram and walk a little bit ,you can explore nearly all tourist destination and travel to-fro between Sothern Cross station that connect Tullamarine airport without need to use Myki travel card:)Nice staff.Provide good activity for guess.
Sometimes noisy(because of it"s location)but no problem for me to sleep.For this price and location I can over look all negative point for this hostel.
Location is super great!
Can't contral the temperture, sometimes it's too cold in the bathroom and the dorm room.
Kitchen was filthy and full of very young travellers. Im only early 30s but would rather stay at yha anyday.
stayed in a ensuite 4 bedded mixed dorm, comfy but a bit noisy in the early morning cus of the construction work outside, but there is nothing one can complain about the hostel
a staff coming in the room for room cleaning well maybe in the afternoon? but then when we returned our room later at night we found our door is left opened.
The atmosphere and the location is good !
Ppl stay at a hostel normally needs to works on their computers a lot ! But the wifi here sucks ! It always disconnected ! We actually need to use our own data roaming !
Common rooms are really good, especially kitchen
It's too bad for a renovated backpacker with good common areas to have so bad beds, noisy and just not good to sleep
Location, cleanness(esp. bathrooms), kind and cheerful staffs.
There were not enough forks and cups in the kitchen. Bunk beds were squeaking at night, and there was no wardrobe in the room, which was quite inconvenient(There is a locker under each bunk bed though.) Free wi-fi was available only in common area, which was understandable, but because the kitchen and the tv room were too crowded from early evening, the signal was constantly disconnected and slow.
It is a very central location and it is clean. The hostel organise activities to bring people together so if you are travelling alone you will definitely meet people.
There are lots of very young people living at the hostel looking for work in the area. It feels like the first week at uni all the time. So if you are looking for a party hostel this is the one for you. If you are over 25 I wouldn't stay here. The WIFI is rubbish and you can only access it on the first floor. If you are trying to make a call over Skype you have to do it with all the excitable kiddies running about!
Excellent position, open 24/7, clean
Wi-fi not in rooms, smell of food in rooms, the flush of the upstairs toilet just above my head
Very neat and clean Kitchen. Great WIFI. Nice place to relax and sleep.
Not much. Could use some air conditioning in Summer
Location, Staff , Locker Room. The Staff were very helpful.
Noisy, Very Crowded, Less discipline,
The room and toilet both are clean.The stuff are friendly and really helpful.The location is very convinent to go every in Melbourne city center.I recommend backpacks to stay here.
no wifi in room
Compared to other hostels in Australia, this one stood out for us...the staff were great and this hostel has a nice crowd of people who were up for socialising but respectful of others at the same time. Kitchen is great and location is right in the middle of town. Would recommend this to anyone!
Good location, kitchen, rooms, good access to public transportion system, clean
It does not feel like a hostle where you meet people, not very friendly staff, very noisy beds
