The property's response is

Hi there. Yes we are in a great location in the city center. Close to Southern Cross and Flinders St stations. Being in the city we are also inside the free tram zone. We are sorry you feel the Hostel is dirty. The Hostel is cleaned thoroughly every day by a professional cleaner including all rooms and our night managers also clean after hours. Reception staff are always happy to help with any concerns on the spot if it brought to their attention.
Kind Regards,
Melbourne Connection.

Liked: It is very cheap and really close to the city centre. The staff reacts positively to criticism.

Disliked: No WiFi, supposedly only temporal, due to change of management.
