    Excellent place for the money I paid. Very clean, very friendly staff and right in the heart of Melbourne CBD. Highly recommended place.

    I had a very warm welcome at my 2 am check in. Staff at reception at this time was extremely helpful and happy to give tips and advice.
    Hostel is clean and tidy. Stayed in 4 bed female dorm.
    I was there 3 nights, a quick trip to Melbourne. Perfect location to explore the city. Free internet great bonus. Didn't make it to breakfast.
    I would definitely recommend this hostel!

    Heading off nice and early, we eventually arrived in Melbourne on the following day. After dropping my stuff off at the hostel in the very centre of the city, we headed …
