Thank you for your kind comments. I assume you meant to leave more than 1 star based on your comments!

We chose this hostel as it was right in the city centre and we landed from the UK quite late at night. Getting there was really easy so I would recommend it for that. Compared to other hostels for young backpackers, there's not much going...More

Very convenient to all, free breakfast before 9am including milk, bread, cornflake, jam, butter and coffee. Everyone can use the kitchen, but most of them NEVER wash the dishes and kitchenware that they used. Looks dirty and messy!!!!! What'/ worse, no free wifi

Good location, fun, freindly, well priced. Great place to stay for the budget traveller. Plugs for the handbasin would be nice, plus a few more breakfast spoons. Quite surprised how fellow travellers talk on phones in rooms when everyone is asleep.

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
