          Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
          tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary

          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

          Do you have to give a deposit for the room? We are only staying 3 nights and there's no way I'm waiting 10 days for my deposit back as we're off to Sydney after and need all our money for there and the cruise.if you have no credit card will you have to hand over cash? This is news to me as it does not stipulate anywhere you need a deposit, we have paid in full in advance, will that make a difference?
