Very good 8.0
Good
The bed was very comfy and warm. A bit more cleaning would have been better for the kitchen but other that that I am satisfied
au2 night trip
Good 6.0
not ideal but not too bad either
Staff were pretty great, they were kind and helpful. Location was very convenient- it can't get any better. Cheap drinks and free pancakes were a bonus too. On the downside the downstairs area (luggage room, bar and chill out zone) smelt really bad, the rooms and showers were not very clean and the rooms were boiling (so no one slept much). If it's going to be hot when you stay in Melbourne, do not go here, the fans are very weak and it was impossible to cool down. If it's not hot, then its an ok place to stay, provided you just need somewhere to crash/aren't spending long at the hostel.

Perfect location ... rooms should be cleaned more often especially toilets
Piotr, au15 night trip
Very good 8.0
Nice hostel in a very central area. Depending on the floor you are on is how the shower is set up. 3rd floor has individual showers with toilet. 1st floor has individual showers but in the same one big room. The kitchen is nicely set up. Microwave can be tricky to use. Overall the hostel is clean, workers come in regularly and vacuum the room and clean the kitchen. They even rewash dishes if something is caught dirty and put away because of the people who have no house training.
