Poor 2.0
Not happy
It was way over priced for the for the tiny room, and hard bed.

Good 6.0
The bed and pillows were not comfy. The smell of the alley and room carpet stinks. They do not clean the room even one does not stay in bunk beds.

Very good 8.0
It is one of the best hostels we evere stayed.
Staffs are very helpful and friendly. When the air-conditioner is not working in our room, they let us change another room until we find the best one that suited for us when the city is 40℃. One suggestion is that they it wil be better if the bathroom is a separated totally from the toilet. Or just have the ladies' s bathroom separated from the men's.

Exceptional 10.0
A great backpackers in Melb... Highly recommended!
What a wonderful hostel, with great facilities! Nice large lockers & quiet roommates. Large, well-equipped kitchen & a small gym available. Helpful staff at reception & a good,central location. Great place to stay for a quick trip to Melb! I only wish the jacuzzi hadn't broken down & been out of action on the night I stayed here... It looked v nice on the rooftop, overlooking the city!

Fair 4.0
The front desk staff had awful attitude and the free limited WiFi can’t connect! I’ve tried few times during 27/11-2/12. They should claim that the WiFi is limited on booking page.
