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.

Disliked: zilch

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...

Customer would recommend this property


The property's response is

Just to clarify, all the bathrooms are self-contained with a toilet and shower, so you don't really need a privacy screen as you're the only one in the bathroom - with a lockable wooden door.

We realize that food theft is a problem, like in most Backpackers, and recommend that all guests put their food in an opaque grocery bag, preferably one with a zipper and lock the zipper to deter theft.
