Wouldn’t stay here again. It’s in an old office building so most of the rooms (even the private rooms) have no windows. You can hear every door open in the hallway. Extremely loud. Had ear buds, still couldn’t sleep.More

Hi Diveaman. Sorry to hear you had a bad sleep! Unfortunately due to us being located right in the heart of the Melbourne CBD, we have a few limitations as to what we can do to our building. If we can have you back the...More
I booked for a private room because they suggest on their website that if you want privacy and no noisy, they offer the option of a private room, so I made an update to such room and was HORRIBLE!! Extremely NOISY, but you can’t imagine...More

Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay! We hope to have you again next time you are in Melbourne.
However, due to the high ration of "long term residents" the place can be rather noisy...they treat the place as their own home not being considerate of short-stayers. Nevertheless, the place has an ideal location (right next to and above the CBD police station) has...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.
