It was a shock to realise we were staying in an old prison building. Stairs and stairway carpet are awkward and need an upgrade. Not suitable for disabled guests. Staff helpful and well trained. Location brilliant for train and trams. Access to shops and city. Wifi Good.

The room we had this time was very small- we couldnt sit on the chairs at the desk unless we moved the two beds together. Unfortunately finding two large cockroaches did not exactly float our boat!

Friendly Staff and Great Location
Staff were super friendly and helpful - location is great right near Southern Cross Station so easy access to the rest of Victoria via train and the airport via the Airport Bus.

Comfortable but poor service
Late night check in staff was helpful and friendly, can't say the same about the entire morning crew. I am regularly amazed that it takes 5-7 days to have the bond refunded to a credit card. Seems it's just blamed on an Australian Banking system inefficiency, not encountered anywhere else in the world! I was also very surprised to be charged $3 per item to store luggage until I needed to get to the airport. Felt like money grabbing especially when the site states they provide the luggage storage service but fail to mention the charge. The staff member was very quick to remind me that a free storage was usually only offered at 4 and 5 star hotels until I reminded him that the hotel was advertising itself as a 4 Star establishment. The Wifi speed was not reliable.
