Too loud”
The place itself is alright, rather clean and not overcrowded. Kitchen was surprisingly clean for a hostel, so were the bathrooms. However not the best place to have a good rest, it was very loud. I am working full time and had to stay a night in a hostel as I was in the process of looking for a flat, and they played loud music until 1-2am. I was at the 2nd floor but it was so loud that I could still hear it in the room, even with earplugs. So distinctly that I could recognize which songs were played. Then it stopped eventually, but some careless guests were hanging around in the corridor just in front of the rooms, watching videos and laughing really loud. After 20-30 min I had to confront them to ask them to go somewhere else. To which they just laughed at me arguing that I was staying in a hostel and had to cope with it. Not a fan of denunciation but had no choice but to go to reception and report them. Needless to say that the next day at work was appalling.

Acceptable”
checked in well as normal as others. But the time I opened the door, I could see 12 beds in the room. paid 8, got 12. I just closed door and just went back to the reception. What I heard at the fisrt time was "no more 8 bed rooms. but it was booked on me. Agoda booking system had some errors. So you need to call agoda customer service yourself and get the answer" She answered me call Agoda to solve this thing myself. only next 3 days I am staying in Melbourne. Who wants to call agoda and lose the time for it? so I just asked for the full refund to get other accommodation urgently. But, what I heard was "whenever you stay, you need to come here tomorrow morning. Refund things only manager can do" However, In the end of the time she got me 4 bed room and said "are you happy with it? It's free upgraded to 4 bed room which has ensuite bathroom." I lost my time to solve this thing. Anyway I advise "do not book here thru agoda" they will just give you 12 beds room with saying nothing

Room is clean and big. But no air conditioner and free wifi in the room. My room was 1F so it's bit noisy from the street. Staffs are friendly. Breakfast is free pancakes. No tea, milk, cereal.

Lovely hostel in a really good location, clean big rooms (no lockers available), free pancake breakfast :). I was in a 12 bed room on the 1st floor and there was no air con which was a little uncomfortable in summer as room got quite room and some noise from the street below (understand though as very central location) but overall great hostel with good facilities!

I stayed there for 3 nights. There were 2 nights without hot water when I took the shower. The water was just a bit warm but sometimes turned cold. It was winter time so I felt really cold after taking the shower. After I left, I have been sick until now.
