It was the worst hostel I stayed in during my 3 weeks in Australia. Cleanness is a real issue here. The room was not cleaned once during our stay. There was so much dust on the floor that I decided to keep everything on the...More
I had to switch rooms to accommodate me needing to extend my booking, that's fine I understand that. The showers weren't overly clean, the kitchen was very crowded with long term guests taking up almost all of the fridge space so I couldn't keep anything...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
I heard that King Street in Melbourne is not safe. Is staying in the hostel safe?

King Street is one of the busiest streets in Melbourne, with a booming nightlife (especially on weekends), easy access to sporting venues, and the load leads straight to Crown Casino. As the street is so busy we do our best to keep our hostel a safe, fun, and happy environment.
We have one of our experienced team at the hostel 24 hours a day, every day of the year. If guests have any concerns they are more than welcome to bring them up with us and we will resolve any issues.
As well as having a member of staff at the reception desk 24/7, we also lock our front door after 11pm and guests must use their room key to access a security door. A key is also needed to open your room and the stairwell door that leads to the rooms.
Hopefully we have put your mind at ease and we will see you soon :)
