                    It’s walking distance to Degraves Street, train station, and tram. Many restaurants and convenience store nearby. Value for money because it’s comfortable, clean, and offers simple breakfast (toast, cereal, milk). Great service!

                    This is my first hostel stay and has by far, exceeded my expectations! Check in and check out were both hassle free and I was even allowed to leave my baggage in their storage room since my flight was still later in the afternoon. Its centrally located so everything is either walking distance or a tram ride away. Got sad to find out that they are closing their doors on May 31. Was planning to stay there when I return. :(

                    Pros: Quiet room, comfy bed, thick comforter, lobby and common area is on a diff floor so rooms and hallways are kept quiet, far walk from the southern cross 20min, good location with plenty of shops, cheap rate with free breakfast Cons: No individual sockets near the bunk bed, creaky bunk beds, toilets and showers are shared which is a given for dorm accommodation but there are a few with common toilets but with individual toilet/showers

                    I stayed at Greenhouse last month. In order to catch a early flight next morning, we planned to stay a couple of hours in the TV room. But, there'a a male staff woke us up at 3am, and throw us out, walk us to the lift, press the ground for us, even spyins us in the monitor. No offence, but he is so rude and show no respect, i feel disappointed and i will not choose this hostel ever again.

                    Good value for money, excellent location, free breakfast (basic one), rooms are quite spacious. Shout out to Shannon for the free Monday walking tour, he is informative! The only downside is the bunkbeds make some noises if the one who sleeps above you keeps moving at night.

                    Located in CBD near to restaurants, fast food, 711, and tram and railway station. The only negative thing about this hostel is that you can hear clearly other people talking from the other room. It was really annoying when there are people talking so loud over the phone along the corridor.

                    The Hostel is in a great position not far from Flinders street train station. The kitchen facilities are okay not all burners work and you may have to wait for other people to finish. On a negative note the morjority of rooms don’t have a window or any natural light and the staff are not very helpful. Also every morning just after 10am there is an announcement for people who should be checking out. I didn’t personally like having my sleep disturbed.

                    The location is perfect, good price, however, the cleanness is not so great. Many residents left their dirty tableware and leftover everywhere making the public area very dirty, even though the porters cleaned the kitchen several times.

                    Room 404 just in front of the wash rooms, therefore tend to be busy. Great location, near foods n tram stations. Very helpful and approachable staff. A affordable and enjoyable budget stay in the heart of Central Business District (CBD) Melbourne. Start as early as possible to Great Ocean Road (GOR) (take coastal road) to enjoy the sea views. Drive carefully on the winding roads. Probably you rent a car from (+ return) at the Airport. Plan yr journey well. Cheers.

                    It's a crowded hostel. If you like to join other people, Greenhouse may be your choice but because of a lot of rooms/beds, you will be in crowded situation including the service from staff. They're not as friendly as little hostel.

                    Hostel located in the great locations. In the heart of Melbourne CBD. They have a good security system you may need your access card for the lift to enter your floor and room. I am a optus user. Its hard to get signal in the room but Telstra is fine. Wifi only available in 6th floor where the reception kitchen and living areas.

                    Make sure you don't cook too late”

                    I was disappointed by the conduct of the staff when they kicked everyone out of the kitchen at around 9:30pm to clean. I had just gotten back from a full day tour and wanted to make dinner, so I wasn't aware that cleaning was supposed to happen at around 9:00pm. I already had my ingredients prepared and had pots on the stove with boiling water when we were all asked curtly to leave. The staff singled me out and repeatedly told me to leave even though I was trying to clean up my things and put my food back into the fridge. While I understand that the hostel needs to keep its kitchen clean, there must be a better time for them to schedule kitchen cleaning (e.g. early in the morning before breakfast? Or some time later than 9:30pm? A lot of other hostels do this). Instead of kicking everyone out who was already there, they could have also fenced off the kitchen earlier and let the remaining people finish their cooking before making them leave. Other than that, Greenhouse was a good hostel

                    I switched hostel and I can certainly say this is the better of the two. The location is spot on, couldn't be better. The kitchen and lounge are very spacious and functional. The staffs are very polite, welcoming and helpful. Very nice stay overall.

                    The kitchen can be more organized and systematic. Cooking utensils should be categorized according to its own functions instead of all cluttered up in one corner making the users difficult to find what they need. Knives, for instance, can have a their dedicated place. Basic condiments (salt, oil, sugar) can be provided. More fridges should be available. The common room and the tv room are superb, no comments there. Lanyards can also be prepared for the guests to safeguard their keycard better. All in all, my experience here has been wonderful. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends if they are coming to Melbourne!

                    Fuss free accommodation in the city ”

                    Particularly loved the location from flinders station where I had to lug my luggage. As an international traveler coming through the southern cross was easy too with several trams serving the nearby stop from the guesthouse. The kitchen is huge and the lounge area where the free wifi is has an assortment of ppl every night from all walks of life. U can chill out and have your own decent me-time even or hang out with your buddies in the balcony for some drinks. I have returned to this hostel each time I travel alone. But I start to notice the sofa might need some upholstery soon. Also perhaps some big clear instructions can be placed in the dorm rooms some clear time for room mates to be quiet hours and to be more considerate to our fellow tired room buddies though.

                    It's located in CBD and just 1-2 block(s) you can walk to Federation Square. All facilities are great including kitchen, laundry room, bathroom, rooftop, pool table and lots of activities you can join. People from different countries stay here so you can make new friends easily even it's your solo trip. Moreover, all staffs are kind and friendly. Don't believe me just try!!! ^^
