"It was a lovely grand old building and was handy to the city - either a nice walk or tram in. Felt safe and secure and plenty of close eating spots and shopping on chapel street. Breakfast included was handy too!"

Liked: Free breakfast really good and free wifi which is always a plus. Nice common room area. More of a hotel feel to the place. Really great location, just off chapel street and has a tram right outside which goes straight into the city.

Disliked: Major issue was the lack of cooking facilities (just a microwave and sandwich toaster) which is difficult for those not wanting to eat out every night. The fridges are also constantly locked, which proved slightly annoying having to ask for a key every time you wanted a drink.

Liked: This property was in a great location not to far from stkilda beach or Melbourne city centre walkable but you can get the tram in. The hostel is basic and clean beds were really comfy and shower facilities were brilliant they were cleaned every morning. Staff were friendly and the reception was open 24hr so checking in late at night is fine. The complantary breakfast is basic with cereal and toast on offer as well as fresh Orange jucie, tea and coffee. Over all we would defiantly stay here again.

Disliked: Nothing to dislike

Liked: It is very central to everything you need if you're backpacking. The area is fairly active and quite dog friendly. Lots of different places to eat and have a nice café latte! The train station is about a minute walk from the main door. Great breakfast if you like tea, cereal and sliced pears and peaches. The price for our room seemed appropriate.

Disliked: There is a lot of construction going on at the moment, so you have an alarm clock set early whether you like it or not. Toorak Road is expensive, so look carefully for decently priced meals. Eating out can add up quickly.

Liked: Quiet. Quick and easy trip into the city.

Disliked: Electrical sockets were difficult to get at because of how furniture was squeezed into the tight space--not that the room was too small, just that the furniture didn't fit very well.

Liked: The BEST hostel i have ever stayed at! And ive stayed in lots in Australia and the world. Charming property. Old world charm. Modern clean facilities and rooms. The best of a hotel, the best of a hostel. Towels and soap, tv in twin room. Complimentary breakfast and kitchen staff. Great location for chapel street shopping. Individual toilet and shower combo facilities. And the staff! A man behind the desk noticed that a weird man was talking to us outside the hostel and then offered to walk us to the station for saftey. Your own personal bodyguard! We felt very appreciative and impressed. We cant wait to come back.

Disliked: Absolutely nothing. For the price, extraordinary value.
