    Spending a night in Melbourne. Pro's: Great hostel, clean room, clean bathroom, free wifi. Cons: if there's a lot of people in the lobby the wifi goes really but really slow, personal experience: for a hostel quite expensive

    Hi Daniel We're really happy you enjoyed your first stay in a YHA. Don't be a stranger - there are more than 80 other YHAs around Australia so we'd love to see you at another hostel soon.

    Melbourne Central YHA is on Flinders Street and it is close to the Federation Square, St Patrick Cathedral, Swanston Street. Good ambiance at the hostel and there is a coin laundry next to it. Recommended.

    Thanks for your review - we're sorry that you didn't have as good of a stay as possible. We actually do have free Wi-Fi - like at other YHA's, it's free in communal areas. For us, that's the ground floor, however if you're after Wi-Fi...More

    Hi Dayle All private rooms have towels provided. Guests in multi share rooms need to either bring their own towel, or can hire one at reception for a small charge. Looking forward to having you to stay soon.
