Spent most of my hostel time in Melbourne in this hostel. Very friendly and helpful staff, good value for money. The bathrooms are nice too. The mattresses are horrible - they've got a sort of plastic covering which squeaks every time you move, but aside from that, no issues at all! When I stayed last week, the pub underneath was...

Bar sitting under a backpackers but don't let that fool you. Go in and look at the specials above the bar if you want a good feed. Good selection of beers, pool tables and live sport. Try the $10 burgers you will not be disappointed.

Hi there, I apologise for your disappointment, however it does state on our website, all booking sites and on your hotel confirmation that hotel balconies are unable to be accessed due to council regulation. As we have many residential neighbours, we are prohibited to open balcony doors at council request. We do apologise for the inconvenience.
