Located on an amazing spot in the middle of a hipster suburb of melbourne, with easy eccess to public transport, supermarkets and the inner city! Friendly staff and everyday free breakfast! Easy going people, chilled environment, good rates.

Avoid. Avoid. Avoid. Do not go here. Horrible dirty place! Came back from being out for the day to get back to find someone else in my bed and he hadn't paid to be there. Complained to the reception and she said there was nothing she could do?!! The whole place is filthy and has a horrible smell.

The place was in such bad conditions in terms of hygiene and environment that my husband and I decided not to stay at the hostel. Despite the friendly staff, they have no control of what happens inside - the facilities were trashed. Besides that, was inevitable not to noticed the free consumption of drugs inside the hostel.

So. I like the look of the hostel. The graffiti on walls, the lounge, the new bathrooms.. all good when it comes to that. And the area is generally awesome. Easy to get to everywhere, good, artsy style. But. I know, that hostels are not the quietest usually. And a lot of people party there. And maybe it was just...

I came here with the intention of staying 5 nights and barely made it through 4; this place was so dirty, my bedding was severely stained, the bathrooms never had toilet paper were always disgusting. The staff is unapproachable and they clearly don't care about this place; so the people who stay here don't either. One of the managers has...
