    Everything else in this hostel is nice except for the dorm which was the 12 mix dorm that I stayed, the moment I walked in, it is so messy! I don't know how the people lived there.The management should do something about it.Cleanliness is important.

    Very good location, just in the middle of the city. I like my roommates so much, and the people from the staff. Everyone is respectful. Free pancakes!!!! AMAZING. It has good vibes, you can feel it when you cross the front door.

    Very good staff, good location and services nearby. The room was very big, clean and sunny. The bar in the basement is not that cheap but its great anyway, althought like most of this places in Australia, it closes early.

    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
