The location of this hostel was awesome, with Flinders street station, Federation Square and a tram stop all on your doorstep. The facilities were good, big kitchen with plenty of places to store your food. The t.v room and bar were great places to chill out and meet. the bathrooms were clean, big and I never had to wait to them.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the back of hostel are much quieter, as the hostel fronts on to busy Flinders Street.

Really nice hostel. Staff are super friendly and helpful. I was in a 4 bed female dorm with an ensuite bathroom. Room was quiet, airy and spacious and beds were clean and very comfy. The kitchen area was huge and I made my meals there. Hostel is centrally located smack bang in the middle of Melbourne's CBD. Go stay there - you won't regret it!

Well what can I say about this place.
Fantastic Hostel. Certainly the beat in Melbourne. I was lucky enough to meet Chuck the manager who is possibly the most handsome bald man you could ever lay eyes on. And such a doll. The bar downstairs is amazing and you can tell whoever designed it, really put a lot of love in to it. The staff are all great and the hostel is top shelf. Liam behind reception is a hunk and nearly made me vote Yes in the recent plebiscite.
Can't recommend enough. Do yourself a favor and stay there. Perfect location and perfect hostel.

the rooms are basic and they come with lockers beneath the bottom bunk beds. We stayed for a conference and it was fairly comfortable, nice little bar downstairs which had a 90's party on the Saturday night which was fabulous! Wouldn't stay here with kids but great for adults.
