Fantastic hostel!
We spent 4 nights here ( family of 4 ) in a family room with a private bathroom. The room was spacious , clean and comfortable. We loved the facilities! .... from the rooftop patio with hot tub, foosball table in the lounge, the amazing kitchen, movie theatre room, etc, our kids felt we were at a resort. The front desk staff were absolutely excellent - so helpful and happy to give advice about the city. The location is amazing too! So central in the city. You can easily walk everywhere. Wifi didn't work too great from our room.

SPACE improves over time
My 2nd stay here. It's been 4 years since the last time I stayed in this hostel, and I think they has since made things even better! If I remembered correctly, I think they have upgraded all the basins and toilets to stainless steel ones. Which means easier cleaning, thus better hygiene. Staff was amazing and super friendly. The manager was very kind and helpful. I will be sure to stay here again the next time I visit Melbourne.
