Stayed here for 3 nights last September while doing a solo backpacking trip and I should say this hostel was one of the best I've been to. It is strategically located, very close to Federation Square; I did not have a hard time looking for restaurants as there are many surrounding the hostel. There's also a movie room and a... More

- noisy a/c (can’t turn off) - no window to open + got an upgrade with own bathroom + great roof top + great bar area. Party, without disturbing those who want to sleep + clean + central location with only a short walk to the city center

I stayed here for 3 nights. The hostel is in a great location, just a 15 minute walk down to Federation Square and plenty of bars and places to eat nearby. The dorms are great and I particularly liked that each bed had its own power point, shelf and light. I also liked the individual bathrooms which offered great privacy,... More

A friend and I stayed in the twin single. It had quite comfortable beds. Pillows were not to my liking personally (felt like 50%air) but overall compared to most HOSTELS it was comfortable. I peaked into some other rooms while walking down the hall and it seems some twin single rooms are setup differently. Ours was awkward as it was... More

Definitely one of the best hostels I have stayed in. It's defiantly worth paying the little bit extra to stay here. Clean rooms, each bed with its on power point and locker. Clean bathrooms which are cleaned regularly. Great location by central station. The only down side is the Internet. You have to pay for this and don't get unlimited... More

Pretty decent spot. Was fairly quiet and offered smaller dorms if you don't want things to be too rowdy. Great location as well, very close to the CBD and all the main attractions. The bar downstairs does great pizza for 5$

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
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.
