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
I liked the central location and the staff were all so friendly!! Also the fact that you have a small reading light and plug socket next to each bed was very important for me. Overall this is a fantastic hostel and if I return to Melbourn I shall defiantly stay here again!!
The only thing I didn't like was behind the beds don't get cleaned properly on my departure I looked behind the bed to see if I had dropped anything down there and was surprised when I saw someone else's rubbish and even a pair of shorts that didn't belong to me
Private Bathroom Location Cleanliness Bed
Noise kitchen,weak wi fi.
Great location & staff, a lot of activities, very clean and spaceious. Also big kitchen and great atmosphere. Definitly best place to stay in Melbourne!
There was no laundry, but they're working on that.
Everything. Rooms, toilets, common areas were very clean. Sometimes the bathrooms were messy, but never dirty. Beds were comfy. Wifi was fast.
The number one biggest problem is that there is no wifi in the room. Only in the common areas, where it is generally too loud to even concentrate or Skype. If wifi were available in the rooms, this place would be a perfect 10.
Facilities were clean and modern, room was very well presented, staff were friendly and helpful
Lots of early morning noise from the surrounding area woke us up
Easygoing staff, room was clean, place was not too noisy.
It's a hostel, not a five star hotel! but it is pretty ok for what it is
great to have free wifi in the social areas though it would have been nice if it worked in the rooms. everything was incredibly clean! even the kitchen was always clean and tidy (something that I have found is a rarity in big hostels) lovely comfy social/tv area - great space to sit and relax amazing location - right next to Delgraves Street (which became my favorite place to sit and have coffee and people watch as well as use the libraries free wifi) staff were friendly and helpful something new going on each night if you chose to partake but it did not feel forced nor did it take over social areas comfy clean beds with good sized lockers felt very safe and secure overal fantastic, I would definately come back!
I and my girlfriend we slept to the private double room. The toilet was a little small but, of course, we didn't aspect much from an hostel..the important think was clean and at the end was confortable like the whole room.
Not a big issue because was confortable.. The bed was a bunk bed..the part under was a small queen bed and over a single..
Clean, modern, good kitchen facilities, helpful staff, quite
A little soulless
New facilities. Tidy and neat. Got elevator.
Would be perfect if wifi is available in the rooms
Location near Flinders Street Station and restaurants on Degraves Street, comfy bed and clean sheets, 24 hour reception
- good security - good atmosphere - great location - Nice hot showers
- Will be better when they have laundry facilities - Wifi would be better throughout building (level 1 becomes crammed with people) - rooms a little cold (air vent pumps in fresh air)
Near flinders station
So far none
Staff and location
No trowel ( inform in advance so that can be prepared), bed sounds too loud
The kitchen is too noisy especial at night. It's a bit difficult to go to sleep until 1 o'clock.
very great location for Melb cbd
well, the guy who made my checkin questioned my preference on alcohol as he is not aware of meeting with such a great drinker :) what I advise is not stereotyping by appearance, just chill out mate :)
It is well managed and everything is order. The staff do cleaning regularly. Quilt is provided. The facilities are new and work well. Good security system. Nice staff. I hurt my ankle on the day of arrival and I got an ice pack from the receiption area which was really nice.
The AC was aloud sometimes but the rest was nice
not enough chairs on the weekend in the kittchen and tv area!
Very accessible, room is spacious and very clean, bathroom is tidy too.
Bunk beds were squeaky thats all
Friendly staffs with warm reminders, Kitchen for refilling drinking water, Luggage room to place the luggage if you reach earlier before checking in or intend to check out later Clean bathroom
It's crowded in first floor, even in the aisle, especially in the night It's noisy in the early morning as it's located just beside the backlane and some construction is in progress
The location of this backpackers was awesome, right opposite Flinders Street Station, and a short walk to everywhere in Melbourne. Lovely hot water in the ensuite shower, even though it was the tiniest bathroom I've ever seen!
The beds were very uncomfortable, and every time you moved they squeaked, groaned and generally woke you up. A cleaning staff member just walked in without knocking on one of our paid days, thank goodness we were just sitting around talking ...
Strategic location. Free city tram, Flinders street station, visitor information center, federation square etc. are within walking distance. Friendly staff. They always try their best to help or provide necessary information.
Our air conditioning did not work properly and the staff who was on duty unable to help. He felt very sorry and compensated us with the United Backpackers Bottles.
