    rooms very clean, toilets and kitchen okay, good place for meeting people, you can get help with your tour bookings, great location in the middle of Melbourne rather loud because it's in the citycenter and there are many people around

    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

    corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
    even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
