Nice hostel- average breakfast”
Rooms were nice, clean and had enough plug sockets for all. WiFi is decent and staff were lovely. My only complaint was that breakfast was served by the angriest, rudest man in Melbourne and the pancakes were not very good. Breakfast was until 9.30 we arrived at 9.05 and were told to hurry up and that we were not allowed to sit on one of the spare tables. Strange. Rest of the staff were fab though and very helpful.
Thank you for your review! Was nice having you here! Safe travels
Best location with easy access to stuff in the CBD”
I met great and friendly backpackers in this hostel. They shared with me advice about things to do and where to go in Melbourne. The hostel is suitable for someone new in Melbourne, very easy to get around :)
Thank you so much for your review! I'm so glad you enjoyed your time with us here. I hope you'll visit us again if you return to Melbourne! - James
Strategic and Convenient ”
I had booked the lodge for my nephew who was doing a 2days stop-over before leaving Melbourne for home. As this is his first trip on his own and due to time constraint, I wanted him to be able to see a little of Melbourne city as such - All Nations Backpackers Melbourne offers the convenience as it is near to Skybus bus stop at Southern Cross so he can shuttle between the airport and the city, and public transport to city centre is accessible. He can even walk to Queen Victoria Market, China Town, Flinders Station, Federation Square :) . I have asked him about his stay in the lodged and he had given his comments and have liked it very much!
Far better than hostels in Sydney. The mobile app access to the room is great but it's a hit and miss. sometimes it works, sometimes it don't. probably a bluetooth issue or something. It's very near Southern cross station so it can pretty much takes you anywhere in Melbourne and trams. There's a 7-11 right beside it.
Thanks a lot for your review! We hope to see you again :)
Ideal location, great staff ”
Great location, ideal for getting around, close to everything. Free pancakes in the morning, easy checkout! Stayed here for a couple weeks while adjusting to Melbourne and the staff were super helpful and patient with my constant extending- STUUUU is an absolute legend! I would not have stayed here as long if it weren’t for him constantly helping out and making me feel at home xx
Hi Patricia Thank so much for your lovely reply. Our staff really do try and go above and beyond for guests and its fantastic. Were so glad and hope you come back again-i'll let stu know to grab you a drink next time your in town haha. Cheers Nomads
Had a great sleep after 8 hours flight”
I arrived Melbourne at night after 8 hours plus flight. Had a great sleep as the mattress is not a substandard mattress. Thank you! The location of this backpackers hostel is quite centrally located. I had a city walk in Melbourne in the next morning and it was easy to walk around and reach everywhere in the city.
I love it very much! Easy to go anywhere”
Staff was nice and price was cheap! Also the room was very clean and the bath room was comfortable. The environment was lovely and I live it very much . I will go again if I stayed in Melbourne.
Great location, affordable price”
Helpful front desk, hot showers and complimentary pancakes for breakfast. However, luggage storage could be better managed as my friends backpack was mistakenly taken by another backpackers and the staff that is authorised to review the CCTV wasn't in and nothing could be done.
Dear John, We are happy to know that you spent a great time with us. We highly appreciate you notice our staff effort to make your stay pleasant (including our great pancakes!!). We take note of your comments about our free luggage room. Hope to see you again soon! All Nations - Pablo.
It's easy to find hostel because it's near Shouthern cross and near free bus station.If i come back Melbourne i will stay at this hostel again..Love it!
Positive; - spacious dorms - helpful staff (i wasn't happy with my room at check-in, but both the girl & guy at reception were extremely helpful and considerate and now i am happy) - good location - free pancakes / rice / pasta / tea - kitchen is cleaned a few times during the day, even during dinner time when lazy backpackers don't clean their own stuff - lots of bathrooms Improvement points; - rooms are rediculously hot without a/c and limited amount of fans - lots of noise from trains, earplugs will do though - wifi is very... australian haha Thanks!
Thanks for the review! Your comments are really pleasing that our hard work is paying off. Thank so much!
I am really impressed with the service! There was a bit of kerfuffle with the rooming as the bed allocated for me was occupied. After trying several times to relocate, one of the male staffs (I am forever grateful for him being super helpful, but I dont know his name :/) put me in one of the empty rooms so I could rest peacefully. We had to climb up and down the stairs so many times to check the computer which room has an empty bed. He was so professional, which is something that's usually rare from budget accommodation. My room was clean and so was the bathroom. The bed was comfortable too. For its price, the standard was pretty good. Would recommend if you are travelling in a tight budget

Looks old but everything is actually good. Nice reception with a smooth check in. Acceptable room. Fully equipped kitchen with a lot of free food. Free breakfast. We had pancakes. Big luggage store. Kind staffs letting us to use the kitchen after check out even though it may not be a big deal.
Hey! We're glad you enjoyed your stay here, thank you for the review.
Just love this place. ”
Just like a big family but very well organised. Big kitchen with all the cooking equipments, thanks for the free pancakes every morning. Lots of toilets and shower rooms. Close to the free tram stand, very easy to go to central to train station to the parks. I just love this place. Only a bit noisy from the road.
Hello, thank you for your wonderful review! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us.
GOOD BACKPACKER HOSTEL”
BATHROOMS VERY CLEAN AND STAFF VERY HELPFULL, BIG KITCHEN WITH ALL THE EQUIPMENT. SO YES, I RECOMMEND THIS HOSTEL IF YOU ARE TRAVELLING AS A SOLO BACKPACKER
Thanks for the review hope to see you again soon :)
Great Location & Value for Money”
Pros: Great Location, Easy access to all CBD main attraction. Friendly staff,spacious room & comfy bed. Delicious breakfast ie pancakes. Cons: Limited free wifi coverage, only at common areas. Kitchen a bit messy especially during dinner time. The property probably can hang a big notice to remind other guests on Quiet Time after 12am
An old building in corner of spencer & flinders street”
Value for money if on a budget,walking distance to and from southern cross station,right across the free tram ride to flinders station. Cons: Very old building with old narrow stairways leading up to d 3 rd floor NO LIFTS so a real struggle for heavy luggage. Receptionists are very friendly and welcoming so with the Thai & the Korean Cleaners in the Kitchen😄 Cons:the OLD PANCAKE MAKER GUY whose rude to the guests using the kitchen. He acts like he own the place and would forbid the guests to use the kitchen even if its open. He wanted the kitchen if possible all for himself to use come his pancake preparation time. Everything could have been tolerable if it were not for this RUDE PANCAKE MAKER guy who shuts down especially the younger guests. Btw he's not an AUSSIE.. Looks more of a Mexican or Italian guy. Hope the management will impose disciplinary measure to this guy or else it might lose its appeal to backpackers.
Thanks a lot for your honest review! We talked to the pancakes maker. We want our guest to feel as welcome as possible. Hope to see you again :)
Has what you need for a backpacker”
It is a great place to stay, no doubt about it. For a backpacker, all we need is a place to stay -- and this place provides it. No paying for frills that you dont need - and there's even a place that you can find cheap tours. Recommended!
Centrally located with the free tram in front of the door.”
Staff at the reception is really helpfull and friendly. When the wifi code didn't work on my iPad, George from the front office called for 20 minutes with the company to fix it. When there was a mistake made with my booking Sandro fixed it directly, thanks guys! Stayed for one month, is a good value for money hostel in the middle of the CBD.
Although it is just a backpackers hostel, it certainly a good choice for fellow traveler because of its location, and a very helpful receiptionist. I dont regret having to choose this hostel.
