    Great location. Great price. Great atmosphere!
    Could not have chosen a better Hostel in Melbourne! Location in the heart of the CBD and china town. There is also a great bar and liquor store in the Hostel. I am usually picky about the hostels I stay in and this one was great.
    Only downside would be no private bathrooms, you share with the whole floor and the key cards to get in could defiantly use an upgrade

    Fantastic last weekend in Australia. Defiantly went out with a bang!
    I kicked off my weekend with a couple other au pairs in the city. We decided to get a hostel in the city so we could stay out late (the train only runs until 1 but most bars are open past 2!). We had planned on heading out late that night to a night club but once we got to the …

    fuehlen sich tatsaechlich sehr komisch an. Gemischte Gefuehle: hier hat alles angefangen, das Hostel ist und riecht so vertraut, war wie nach hause kommen; die 10 Monate dazwischen sind wie im Flug vergangen (apropos Flug: der dauert noch mal 9 Stunden bis nach Bangkok); in den Urlaub fliegen und nicht wiederkommen, das letzte Bargeld ausgeben... …

    ... experience but I think I managed to come out of it ok. I eventually headed out of the church since I wasn't really getting to hear much of the organ music with her talking at me. I wandered across the street to Federation square where there was some kind of dance performance going on. It wasn't quite dark yet but I found a spot and plopped down and read some while I waited for it to get a little later in the evening.

    Later on I headed ...

    ... board, then leaves). … now, back to the story. Melbourne has some interesting things, and although it’s growing faster than Sydney, well, it’s no Sydney. Some interesting architecture, and a vast trolley system are hallmarks. Because trolleys have the right of way, if you are making a right turn across a trolley, you get to do a ‘hook turn’ from the left hand lane. Seems crazy, but it works pretty well.

    ... got into our spiderweb costumes and had some drinks outside. We met a couple of guys from London and I had my first taste of Goon (really, really cheap nasty wine bought by the box by poor students and backpackers). Safe to say I won't be trying it again. We went to a few bars but after discovering they wanted 25 bucks entry fee and closed in an hour we settled with the hostels basement disco which was actually pretty cool and stayed open till the early hours.
