Liked: Close to the southern cross station

Disliked: Online booking is 19 AUD, paid ten percent already (1.9 AUD), but when I check in, the boss asked me to pay 19 AUD, because he said the rent is 21 AUD.......... And the boss is bad attitude .....(but staff is good)

Liked: The staff really make a difference here, especially Victoria and Tobe, very welcoming and willing to help out with what to do in and around Melbourne. Good location as close to the station and a short walk from the cities main sites! A nice chill out room downstairs and clean dorms/showers too make it for me.

Liked: this backers is cheap and central to everything you might need or want to see in melbourne.. and the staff are very helpful and the people staying were so much fun to chat and go out on the town with.

Disliked: as stated , its cheap... so the kitchen is (very ordinary) i lost quite a bit of food from the fridge, luckily there is a subway 2 mins away..and the bathrooms were not really bathrooms.... just a toilet and a shower head on the wall, not even a screen for privacy...

Liked: nothing

Disliked: where do i start room stunk and very noisy at night,wanted to check out but didnt realise no refunds on pre booked accomodation so too bad if you booked this way and then had to change plans.Then when i checked out 45 minutes late i was charged $20(the minimum too) ridiculous when the overall room rates range from $23-30(35 for peek periods,a rip off at the best of times) while the cleaner had already taken my sheets off the bed and i had no bags left in the room and not to mention there was 10 spare beds left in the hostel at the time so it wasnt like people were waiting to check in.Then finally to top it all off when i asked the girl at the front desk exactly what costs the hostel had incurred by my "late" checkout especially considering the above, she unbelievably just ignored me!

Liked: The location is fantastic - right by southern cross station, the city centre and the main sights. The staff are very welcoming and informative. There is a social atmosphere, with some good communal areas, and things like the $3 family night make it wasy it get to know others staying at the hostel.

Liked: It's a 2-minute walk from Southern Cross Station, which is really convenient. I liked the bathrooms (toilet, shower and sink in each) and the bed was comfortable, but the room I was in smelled very musty. Mold, maybe?
