    Decent place in a decent neighbourhood. Don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed. Staff were friendly and the rooms are pretty good for their price. They have lockers in each room but bring your own locks.

    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
