This was a hostel in a great location!! It was near the tram lines and the market. The workers at the hostel were very nice and helpful. The rooms and bathrooms were also nice and clean. I would definitely stay here again.

Poor hostel, it's overpriced for what you get. $36.50 a night 8 dorm room. No air con and only 1 plug socket in the room which someone had claimed. Room was dirty, rubbish under the beds, covers and sheets hadn't been changed/cleaned as they stunk. When asked them to change them they suggested I should do it, then they finally...

Hi Ben We are disappointed that you didn't have a great stay with us as that is our aim with every guest and we obviously fell short. Your review has been helpful for us to work on things - so thank you for the feedback. There is a new manager at the hostel so this is useful for him. We...

The location of his hostel is fab, and that's pretty much what you're paying for. It's situated in a cool part of North Melbourne, easy to get the tram or walk into the centre from here, and some good restaurants situated nearby. The hostel itself though can't cater for the amount of people staying there. Even in the 8 bed...

Hi Rachel Thanks for the feedback, especially about plugs! With a lot of buildings around Australia, we are constantly upgrading our electrics to cope with demand - so we will make sure to action some work at Metro on this. With squeaky bunks - please just mention this next time to reception as this is something our onsite maintenance team...

Stayed here as it was affordable for a family of 5 in central Melbourne. We booked online for a pretty reasonable rate. Location is great - short walk to free tram zone for free travel into the CBD. Rooms are standard YHA - we had room 1 which is basically a two bedroom apartment with kitchenette. Perfect for what we...

I would recommend asking to stay with someone young if you are a young traveler, it will be much more enjoyable as we had to share a room with an older lady and she was very bossy and rude, so that made things really uncomfortable and unwelcoming.

When myself and 3 other of my friends arrived at YHA we had a bit of a nightmare. We booked through Expedia and had a family room - which we were told on delivery that we couldn't have the family room without children. To have 4 adults in that room would increase the price incredibly. However, Troy on reception really...

Bed was very hard but comfortable. Room was small but very clean. Staff were very friendly & helpful. Quiet area, short walk to trams, buses, pubs, resteraunts, cafes, shops & Queen Victoria Market. Rooftop area with lovely views of city skyline. Couldn't find the free breakfast, but great hostel, would stay again.

Friendly staff! Quiet location. Big common areas, very clean spaces and close to Queen Victoria Market (cheap and good food) and close in walking distance to free tram zone. I prefer this YHA instead of the other one in Melbourne, this is more modern.

I stayed here for 2 nights with my girlfriend in an 8 bed mixed dorm - always the luck of the draw with so many people and we pulled the short straw. We had a terrible sleep both nights thanks to the Chinese couple. Uncomfortable and creaking beds didn't help much. Not much going on here - close to the...
