    the place is clean and near to Southern Cross station. but there's no usb charging for guests.”

    booked one 1 night thru agoda but extended one more night. when i checked-in on my 1st night, the staff asked me for aud 44, so i gave him the money. i thought it was just a deposit. when i checked out, the staff told me that the money i handed him last night was payment for my room. i was surprised because i already paid the room thru credit card. i insisted and asked them to check it with agoda. fortunately, they give it back to me upon ckecking that its paid already. on the second night, there was a lil prob. because i occupied the bed which is already taken.. gosh, that was disgusting!!! i thought all of the beds were available. would like to suggest that they should assign bed number to each guest to avoid confusion, especially those dormitory rooms. during check in, inform the guest what bed is available and those that are already occupied.

    Good Location&Impressive Luggage Storage System. But, 3 factors caused my disappointment during staying this time. 1. Rubbish bins hadn't got empty while I checked into the room, but solved in the next morning. 2. "Double Room with Bathroom" is fairly different from the photo in its profile in Agoda. In reality, it is older and with some smell of humid. 3. Strongly suggest anyone staying there to pack properly before check out since I'd never find back my chargers left in the room. I called & also went back in person@pm after check out. The chargers were already missing after the room was through housekeeping but no one had checked in yet (at least I didn't see any luggage inside). The receptionist told me he would ask the housekeeper on the next day and call me back but I didn't hear anything. Since I was away for several days, I went back in person to check the lost-finding progress after a week; but the other receptionist just simply told me nothing found. :S

    Expensive for what it offers. Aged facilities, no free left luggage, barely usable free internet (I don't recall internet this slow since I was in Bolivia) only on ground floor, no socket near beds... stuff that most of us take for granted at any hostel all over the world.

I will definitely recommend this hostel. Just walk from souther cross station and skybus. Inside free tram zone and beautiful hostel.

    Location is near Southern Cross station. Tram station is just outside YHA. There's also a 7-eleven nearby. Beds and room are satisfactory. But toilet cleanliness can be improved. Since the toilets are shared and so many people use it, please clean it more often especially the toilet bowl.

    Stayed for 1 night only on our last day in Melbourne before heading out to airport via Skybus at the Southern Cross Station which was only a short walk from the hostel. Great location, in front of the tram station and near 7-eleven. Good security as they provide a key card for female to enter the bathroom.

    Not your typical backpacker hotel. ”

    Its home away from home. The facility is highly secured. Common bath is very clean while toilet bowls are cleaned everyday. There's a big kitchen and complete with amenities. Dining area has ample space for its guests. Its practically at the center of everything and at its footsteps is a tram station. Coles is just a few blocks away while getting to the airport is not difficult as the Southern Bus Station is close by. Check in and check out is a breeze. Will definitely stay here again.

(easy access. can take tram, bus or walking) and safe for solo traveler especially a girl.

    Good Location, Nice Kitchen”

    Location is very good. Just in front of the hostel is a tram stop serviced by the free City Circle tram. If you need halal food there are kebab outlets just steps away. The room itself feels really small. I came from the YHA Sydney The Rocks with 4 beds in a room so Melbourne's 6 beds setup feels really cramped. Kitchen is excellent, they provide everything you need to cook. They don't provide luggage storage facility prior to check in/after check out so you need to use their paid lockers. Also they don't have bedside power sockets (Sydney YHA has this) which I think they should look into addressing. WiFi in common area is free. You need to pay if you want internet in your room.

    Great place!”

    What I like best about the hostel is the location...it is near the southern cross station which is a train and bus station. The skybus--bus from airport also stops there so it definitely is convenient; just 3-5 mins walk. Right in front is the tram. It's part of the free tram zone so it takes you to many places for free! The hostel itself is clean and staff are ready to assist all the time. Had a great stay!

    Nice place to stay at, but not very hostel like vibe. ”

    Nice clean hostel, roomy spacious toile, it has a luxurious vibe for a hostel, but unfortunately, the vibes are not so hostel like, as you would see families and children in there. The free excruciatingly slow. Nice staff in general, however, not professional and undertrained when dealing with problems such as when I had some stuff stolen by a roommate and needed help to retrieve my stuff they did so little and were short-tempered. Also, the Italian guys who worked there at night were very inhospitable

    U should pay attention on their hostel name, it is Australia YHA in the street, not Melbourne Central YHA. It took me 15 mins to find it ,anyway,I think it is worthy if u don’t want to pay a lot on hotel, living here can help u save money.
