I've been travelling around Australia for the last year and a half and this is by far the best hostel I've stayed in. It's so clean, the staff are really helpful and friendly and the location is spot on.

There's a bar downstairs that does $5 pints for residents, cheap food and is open late. The TV room/smoking balconies on the 4th floor is insane! Netflix, comfy sofas and sofas outside if you smoke.

The rooms get cleaned every day, the wifi isn't so great - but I heard a better one will be installed any day now and I haven't met a bad person here. Some hostels are cliquey, this one isn't. Trams, maccas and coles are all within a 5 minute walk and the sky bus to the airport is just across the road. Stay here!!

It's the cheapest place in town and all the staff are amazing it's a good place to go as they have a pub down stairs that dose deals for them that stay in the hostel and a tv/movie room up stairs BUT ... the wifi is CRAP big time even if some people say it's good it's not ... and the TV room is closed at 8 pm that's not the best thing and a lot of people that stay there are workers so only a few people you will see around but the bar is fun cheap you drinks and food and the staff in the bar are cool so if anything you have to at least give it a few nights here it's a good place to stay

We were treated horribly by many staff members. We were given dirty looks and were treated with no respect. Specifically Reece, who sat behind reception rolling his cigarette and not helping us with our roommate issue. He then proceeded to call me homophobic when I myself am a lesbian. The place looked like a prison and there were a lot of dodgy people staying there. We would have stayed for the remaining 2 weeks of our stay in Melbourne, however we switched to Base backpackers which is just down the street that is a million times better (and less expensive, which is a joke really). The pictures on here are not accurate to the poo hole this place is.

Cane here for comedy festival shows, so thought we'd grab a meal snd boy are we glad we did. $15 parma and pot can't be beaten (could swap the pot for a wine ) . Hubby and friend had the burger and they were impressed. A good Aussie burger with beetroot. Parma was proper chicken and decent size covered in tasty tomato sauce which wasn't tarty like some can be. Chips and salad were fresh and tasty.
Venue really busy but service is great, staff super friendly so everything flowed.
Comedy shows were really funny which topped off a great Sunday for folks that don't venue into the surrounding area very often but meal do good we could come back .

Stayed here for 2 nights, was walking distance to everything we needed! We booked the studio room and we were surprised with how spacious the room was, we will definitely be back and recommending to friends
