Lots to love about this place: a) Letting ppl chill/snooze at the bar/lounge area while awaiting for the 2pm check-in. b) Kitchen facilities for cooking/reheating up food c) Location was awesome - easy to get around and about d) No funky smells and bed was free from bugs. e) Hot water for shower (very important!) f) Getting help from the reception on travel tips g) The daily/weekly updates for visitors and things to do...
Didn't want to have room service throughout our stay due to privacy, but we got them anyway. Wished there was a sign that we can place outside our door so that we didn't have to repeat ourselves (if we were in), or be surprised to come back and found the place all cleaned up.
The highlight of my stay was the staff. They were all so friendly and inviting, especially at the reception and the bar.
I didn't quite like the location. But that's not really something that can be helped! A little far from Flinders St Station but close to Crown.
Nicely made bed, big towel was provided.
Quite a distance from places of attraction
Location Staff Great value for the money that I paid for
The room looked much nicer than we expected for backpackers. There was a little surprise on our door when we arrived (Christmas lollies). Bed was quite big and clean. Room had big TV and lots of storage space.
Very poor lighting in bathroom mirror, so made it very tough to do make-up properly. Pillows were very flat and uncomfortable. Timer in the shower which beeped every minute for twelve minutes, even after you had finished the shower before the timer had finished counting down. Our stay was meant to be pre-paid but was declined. We were not notified of the it being declined and had to pay on arrival which surprised us. Staff seemed unimpressed and unhelpful.
Location is perfect close to everything. the bed was wonderful. no noise. plenty of people. someone of the staff was really available and kind. coffe and tee free.
internet, 4$ per h. the price is to high for an hostel someone of staff was fake, they smiled me all the time but they were faking it. the cleaning was fake as well, that means apparently was clean but it wasn't. the kitchen was sometimes cleaned and sometimes dirty especially the dishes and cups. two different guys from Italy got bed bugs in two different room.
lady at front desk was more than helpful
elevator didn't work
Breakfast was awsome
This hotel might not be the best place for your business trip. Teenagers will continue their party in front of your room until 3am. You might get a gum trapping at your door and your door marking with knife, if you tell them to stop.
The urban central is clean and close to the city center. We like the breakfast too.
Be very carefull concerning your credit card! They charged our card in advance and at check-in they wanted to have the full roomrate in cash again. It was their mistake but in this situation they got unfriendly.
Cheap. Free use kitchen, free pasta and rice. Location only 10 minutes walk to Flinders Station
no free wifi. AUD 5 per hour for internet
Friendliness,central location,easy lay back ,yet safe. Everything one needed but so affordable.
Lack of lounge area to chill out and crowded kitchen at times.
Cark parking was a little expensive
Good value and handy location. Bit loud on Friday and Saturday night on first floor due to music in the bar.
the location was great for where we were going that night we were able to walk. it was very quite three veryy happy ladcies we would stay there again
the only fault i found was a small bar fridge in the room would have been nice in the family room
Staff are helpful, room and private bathroom were spotless and it is code enough to amenities and the cbd
One of the windows didn't latch terribly well, good enough to close but not secure.. No big deal
Location and type of room.
Ideal location for us at a good price
Very basic breakfast
spacious rooms and more private than other backpacker accommodations; lifts are good and clean; simple complimentary breakfast; tour desk; big and secure lockers; clean washrooms; 5 minute walk from tram station; they give towels and gifts at check-in;
the noice coming from the bar keeps you awake the whole night! noisy door knob; shared washrooms shower has no lock; toilet in cubicles and no privacy; AC is very old and is noisy!
Need to have none smoking room and bar fridge in room;
The staff were nice. The beds were decently comfortable and the location is excellent.
The bathrooms were dirty and mouldy. The rooms pictured aren't representative of the rooms I stayed in, which were reminiscent of a prison cell. The rooms provide lockers but these lack a lock, but don't worry the staff provide small padlocks for a fee of $3.
Bed a little small, room not much space
