                  Adequate but Ripped US Off”
                  Value for money would have been great, however we paid cash on arrival (no receipt given at the time) and then got charged on our credit card for the room. When I noticed we had been charged on the credit card on the last day we were there the staff recalled us paying cash and provided a receipt to sort out getting a refund via email. Upon presenting the receipt to get our credit card reimbursed we were told it invalid, meaning we have been unable to be reimbursed for this double charge. The accommodation itself was good location, the cleanliness was what you'd expect for shared bathrooms and the rooms were fine. It's a shame we were ripped off as would have gone back otherwise - am disappointed and disgusted with their cheap rip off tactics.

                  The music from the pub down stair can be an issue if you are an early sleeper (Friday and Saturday night only. I think) We went out and came back very late, so it was not an issue for us. Room was quiet small. You get what you pay for. Tram stop opposite the hotel and smith street 10mins walk.

                  Monday over-night stay, no one around as they are closed. No wifi, when it says there is, paid extra $20 for our own bathroom, but no hot water so had to use shared bathroom, heater took ages for us to work out & it was a freezing cold Melbourne winters day/night & because there are no staff on Mondays could not ask anyone for help. Only good thing was the bed was comfy. Would not bother to stay there again.....

                  The room had a large tv and ac. There was some music coming up from the bar below but not over powering. For the budget traveller this was a good option. Food in the Hotel was very good and a good selection of boutique beers.

                  Great Spot, Value for the money”
                  Traveling to Melbourne from Perth for the 2016 GF, I chose this hotel due to the close proximity to the MCG & price. It's unique, a little dated & if you require full daily room service with all the bells & whistles then it's not the place for you. If you need a nice bed & clean amenities that are close to the CBD by tram, numerous little bars & restaurants, then look no further. Arriving at 5am, I booked an extra night so we could go to our room immediately as checkin isn't until 3pm on the days this pub is open. I called thru a couple of days ahead & was given a code which gained us entrance to the hotel & our room. It was easy & the only way to get into the hotel after hours as all checkins are done over the bar, when's it open., works well if you plan ahead. Pub is closed Monday's so prepayment is necessary. No disability access to upstairs, look elsewhere. We had a private ensuite which was nice. Tea & coffee provided but no spoons or milk. Microwave would be a bonus.

                  Not actually a hotel”
                  Calling this place a hotel is just fraudulent. Imagine a place with no check-in desk. A place that is closed and shuttered at 6:30pm on a Monday. A place without a single staff member present throughout our entire stay to deal with any of the many things that were wrong with the place. Imagine a place where to get into the hotel upon arrival, you need to read a sign instructing you to make an international call to some guy's mobile phone so that he can give you a pin number so that you can open the back door using a keypad. Imagine needing to make an international call everytime you need to figure out anything, like for example, the wifi password, which they could very easily just have put up on the back of your room door. Imagine a place where your room has no key, no bolt, no latch inside - just a numerical keypad that every other guest has the pin number to and can access anytime day or night. Imagine sharing a dirty bathroom with strangers. Imagine a filthy toilet bowl and shower and someone's used condom. Imagine there is no toilet paper at all and nobody you can ask for more. Imagine you have no human contact whatsoever with anyone who works there during your whole stay...because nobody actually works there. Imagine a broken fridge, a broken kettle, one teacup and no teaspoon. Imagine no wardrobe, no curtains and a view of some air conditioners. Welcome to the Baden Powell Hotel. There are six words you will never hear at the Baden Powell Hotel! We won't be back. If you're considering staying at the Baden Powell Hotel, do yourself a favour and check into a backpacker's hostel instead for higher customer service standards and a more representative price.
