    Exceptional”

    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. :(

    Value for money”

    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

    Disappointed.”

    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.

    best location kind staffs(except the stubborn middle aged male staff 😰) good accomodation (satisfied comparing with the price) breakfast, shared kitchen, and coin laundry was good (unfortunately, in the shared kitchen, my food was stolen... be careful) you’d better keep your lock and slippers and keep in mind you share the space with others and respect them. good luck

    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.

    Great location ”

    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.

    Central location”

    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.

    Budget Stay”

    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.

    Cheap hostel with crowd”

    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.

    Friendly receptionist, 10mins walking distance to train station, in the center of Melbourne. Free breakfast. One Toilet was dirty the afternoon I arrived, the next day it's still dirty, don't know how often they clean it. The girls dorm has no window, not like the one has big window in pic. 前台友善,10分钟步行到火车站,免费早餐,一个厕所很脏,第二天还是没打扫,不知道多久打扫一次,女生宿舍无窗,不是图片那样有窗户的房间。

    The room is very noisy, can easily hear the sound from street when sleep, eg. Someone singing or chatting down the street. The kitchen is dirty. The bed is old & the bunk bed stair is broken. It is so dangerous when we need to go up the upstairs bunk-bed! But the location is nice & easy to go everywhere.

    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.
