    I liked this backpackers. Clean facilities, comfy beds and warm blankets. I would stay here again. Common area busy but with the AFL grand final on, this was to be expected. Close to train station and good food spots.

    Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
    tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
    feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
    city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,

    even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
