Small and Unclean room
Close to tram station, staff response is good
The room is small with dirty carpet and dirty bathroom. Too many cabinet and unused desk. Not suitable with young children. Room cups stated sleep&go logo and when call reception, they said both budget1and sleep&go have merged.

A fair stay
Pool was nice and barbecue area too. Room was average size. The microwave and fridge was very handy.
Our stay was not bad in whole somethings need to be fixed like the keys of the room. Both to enter the room and to go up the level was a hassle. Also some of the staff keep blaming us about the poor internet which once logged out you cant get logged in. Once we call the internet provider and he fix the problem straight away knowing that it was there fault. Last two days no shampoo and conditioner provided.Barbecue needed to be clean more often. A line to dry clothes is needed especially after the pool.

not exactly a pleasant stay
bed was comfortable, many dining places nearby
only stayed there one night. about three streets away from the nerest subway station. bed was comfortable but aircon wasn't really working. we called the customer service line more than 3 times before someone was willing to come to our room to check. apparently, the guy claimed that the temperatures of all aircons can only be controlled by them. was lucky we only stayed one night.

location & free shuttle bus
I enjoyed staying at the hotel. Room is small but comfortable for a solo traveler. There is free shuttle bus to RMIT, La trobe and Melbourne University. Train is 10 mins walk away. For those who drive, parking is not free.

Price, free shuttle bus, facilities
Overall, I am satisfied with my stay at the hotel. Room with single bed is very small. Toilet and shower are combined, i.e. you can seat on toilet bowl and have a shower. The location is quite far from the city and there is not much to do in the area, however, there is a free shuttle bus to University of Melbourne and RMIT. Train station is within 10mins walking distance. This makes it OK location-wise. This hotel houses some long-term residents. You may find few "strange" people walking around.
