What a cool place!”

I was in Melbourne for business and needed somewhere cheap to stay given how pricey some of the accommodation in Melbourne is. Given they have a bar, I had drinks with clients there and my clients loved that it was somewhere different, and a bit more down to earth. Top spot!

Great location”

Location is perfect because it is near tram stops and most of all, CBD with Flinders Station and Federation Square. You can walk anywhere if you want, also close to some good coffee place! I would love to have Wi-Fi in the room though; unfortunately you have to pay for it here :(

Hey Dewi, Thanks so much for leaving a review. We do provide free wifi in the common areas such as the kitchen, lounge and tv room, it's just the wifi for downloading/in the rooms that is paid for. Glad you had a good stay and explored the wonders of Melbourne! :) Safe and happy travels!

Perfect base in Melbourne CBD”

First time in a shared room at a hostel (4-bed female room with en-suite), and it was great. The room was spacious enough with lockers under the bed and nightstands. It has A/C though you don’t really need it in March. Bathroom had shelves for toiletries; water pressure strong; hot water Location couldn’t be better; Flinders Railway Station just across the road (can see it from the room!), tram stops and buses all around. Degraves lane just around the corner has tons of food choices, but if you want something more affordable shops and stalls are everywhere. Water, fruits, and other groceries from Coles nearby. Many city attractions are also within walking distance. I stayed here for F1, and it was also a perfect location to get to the track. No hassle. Cheers to Liam at the front desk (thanks for saving me a bottom bunk) and Fran!

Several accommodation option. You can share your room with as little or as much people as you can tolerate. Free pancakes in the morning. They charge for wifi in the room but there's free access in the common area. For reference, dining area is at the 2nd floor and right beside it is the TV room. The laundry is at the basement past the bar. There's a loft if you make a U-Turn ( to your left ) right after the arcade machine.

It is not suitable if you want quiet rest. You can always hear the noise of Flanders Street. Shower is uncomfortable. However, there are very kind employees and it is good to talk freely with people from various countries.

I liked staying there. It‘s a bit pricy - but I guess that‘s Melbourne during the French Open. The bar downstairs is nice and the staff very helpful. They don‘t try to sell you stuff all the time (although you do have to pay for everything: WiFi, adapter, lock...).

Convenient location”

I stayed in 4-bed female only room, which had en-suite bathroom. Location is great as it is close to Flinders Station and Woolsworth supermarket. The only downside is that wifi is only available in common areas. I also felt odd that receptionist was friendly to the guests who checked in just before me but not to me. I didn't try the free breakfast nor checkout the common areas. Anyway if you need a bed to rest, this is the place.

Best backpacker hostel ever! ”

This could probably the best backpacker hostel in Australia. Centrally located, you can view Flinder street train station from the kitchen. I walked the whole city area without taking free tram. There’re plenty of supermarkets around, kitchen is big enough to prepare meals or do my work there. I stayed in female dorm, 4 pax with spacious room, ensuite toilet. The room is very clean, mattress is comfy, there’s AC in room also. I enjoyed my stay here, even staying more than going out to the street. Definitely recommended.

If you are travelling to Melbourne and looking for a good and affordable accommodation, this is the one. It's located bedside flinder Street Station. I've booked for 5nights female dorm with adjoining bathroom and i really enjoy staying here. Eventhough is abit noisy at night, but it doesn't bother me much. Only cons is that free wifi that they provided is basically not working. But, you can connect to MCM guest wifi.
