“Good value for money.”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

Spacious, modern and clean room. Cleaning of toilets and shower could be improved. Fitness centre well equipped. Receptionists were fine even if they did not always agree on the prices and services of the hotel.

This is a really great hostel/hotel based only minutes away from the heart of the city. Reception is 24 hours, with really nice and friendly staff who can't do enough for you (big shout out to Seetal who is awesome!!)

I stayed in an 8 bed dorm room - plenty of space in there for everyone's stuff. Really well thought out lockers that have power points, 2 shelves and coat hangers in them. There is also a reading light (with dimmer switch) and a shelf right next to the bed. This all blocks out the light of other peoples reading lights so if you're going to bed earlier than others you aren't disturbed by their lights.

Clean and comfortable beds, very very clean. There is always cleaners around the hostel that pay particular care to the bathrooms and kitchen.

Internet is a tad pricey, but worth paying for as it is really fast. Great communal areas that are always busy but the rest of the hostel is always really quiet.

Really recommend this place :)

As a solo traveller in a new city having Internet access is important. Contacting family members, booking tours, directions etc which is why the Internet charges here are ridiculous. $10 per twenty four hours with a 600mb limit? This was the only thing that really disappointed me about this hotel.

I stayed in a six bed female dorm and I was impressed by the room fixtures and layout. I like that the cupboards block out the light of other peoples individual reading lights which is handy. I like the lockers with outlets in them which gives you personally 4 outlets to use - so much better than sharing with others! The beds were comfortable and the hostel was quiet which was perfect. The only other niggle about this place is that I wish the rooms had mirrors. In a hostel where a few rooms might share a bathroom why not diminish bathroom waiting times and put some mirrors in the rooms?

I didn't use any of the other features of the hostel but the ladies at the front desk were friendly and informative.

Location wise I found it perfect as you're only five minutes away from Melbourne museum, ten minutes from Brunswick street, ten minutes from the main CBD and a boat load of cages, shops and restaurants all around the hostel. I found it a perfect base for the fringe festival. Plenty of public transport outside to get further afield too.

We stayed in a private double for a few days before leaving Australia in early March. We were looking for an inexpensive option in Melbourne, but they don't really exist without staying in a hovel, so we stayed here.

Pros - Well equipped room, this is more like a classy hotel room than a hostel, new furniture and lots of channels on a new TV.
- Loads of room in the kitchen, lots of space in the fridges and plenty for dry storage.
- Gym, lounge area, movie room and games room.
- Good location, right on the bus route and a short walk to the downtown core and a large grocery store.
- Very clean.
- they supplied lockers in the kitchen for cutlery and food if you wish.
- Central air-con.
- Deposit for cutlery sets so you don't have always be searching for them.

Cons - Kitchen was terribly equipped for the size. All the pans are warped beyond use and there are hardly any decent utensils to use. There are drawers full of spatulas, but nothing that you can use in the horribly bent pans. There are two ovens, but one was missing knobs so it didn't work. No plugs for the drains so dishes were washed with a thin stream of water.
- Bathrooms share toilet and shower and there is no curtain, so the floors are always wet.
- For the size of the hotel the check-in consisted of two people and we waited 45 minutes in line to check in.
- Expensive internet, 10$ for 24hrs (wifi), even more for the computers in the lobby.

We made due with the kitchen for what it was, but if we were staying there a week we probably would have bought our own frying pan. They have an industrial dishwasher in the kitchen as well. It was expensive, but the rooms were very nice, we would stay here again.

Overall this hotel is great, the location, value, facilities are all fantastic.
Rooms are clean, a bit on the small side, but if you're booking this hotel i doubt you're planning to spend much time here - there are more expensive options for that kind of holiday.
Internet is pricey ($10 for 24 hours), but pretty much the same as getting a mobile/wireless telstra usb modem.
Kitchen, laundry, gym, lounge room are all excellent.
My partner and i both got sick from the constant air-conditioning that can not be turned off in the rooms, meaning we avoided our room as much as possible. Lucky there are two open air rooftop areas to hang out in when you want some down time.

Room Tip: No opening windows on foods 1 through to 5 means constant air-conditioning is legally required at al...
