    Flinders is the largest hostel I've ever stayed in. The size had me a bit nervous at first, but the management is top notch. There's a good sense of community among the hundreds of visitors so it's easy to make friends!

    Stayed for a week with 2 friends. Nice place, clean. Elevator wasn't working when we first got there (on a Sunday) but was fixed the next day. Free breakfast, staff seemed friendly. We got free wifi because we booked for a week.

    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,
    throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
    never quite know what you’ll find around the next
