Liked: Very clean and well designed. Lots of powerpoints by the beds and in lockers, amazingly enough they managed to create some privacy even in a dorm room. I didn't look at other levels but on mine the bathrooms were all one-person bathrooms and there were lots - this was very, very nice. Signs said they are cleaned five times a day plus on demand so I never had to deal with a gross bathroom. The other facilities looked good but I didn't have enough time to enjoy them as I had so much to pack in to a short trip.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Rooms and bathrooms were very clean (bathrooms were cleaned five times/day) and hotel was very modern. It felt more like staying at a new boutique hotel than a hostel (this was a plus for me). Everything felt secure; bathrooms and rooms both had key card access. Hostel was close to attractions and a five minute walk from Melbourne Central Station (transportation). Loved the iPhone speaker/charger/alarm clock in the rooms, and rooms had plenty of outlets for charging electronics. Has a huge chef's kitchen, gym, laundry facilities, and a Jacuzzi on the rooftop patio. Bar on main level serves INCREDIBLE pizza + pot (one glass of beer or pop) for $7.50 AUD.

Disliked: Wifi costs $10/24 hours or 600 MB, whichever comes first. Hostel advertised 24 hour hot showers, but when I went to take a shower around 8:00 PM there was no hot water. Key cards are needed to get into bathrooms, so even if you're staying with someone else who could let you back into the room you need to take your card with you every time you leave.

Liked: Great location, bright and clean - although water in the bathrooms is a problem, but not sure how it could be addressed in clean ways - better water than filthy bath mats!

Disliked: $20 deposit for plates and cutlery - silly. But it's amazing how far a paddle pop stick and a styrofoam cup (supplied for tea and coffee) can get you. Why didn't I want to pay the $20 deposit? Because I didn't want to have to guard a plate and a spoon in order to get my money back.

Liked: Modern design, clean rooms, great location, modern kitchen, an extraordinary amount of various facilities.

Disliked: Bathrooms are mostly pairs of single toilets and showers. Thus despite the regular cleaning often the whole flor was wet. Not so nice for going to the toilet. Rather cool hot water in the shower in the morning.

Liked: Very clean, great facilities for a hostel, individual plug sockets for each person in the dorms, great areas for relaxing, and the rooftop spa was lovely. Great value food at the bar, and reception was really friendly. Beds were comfortable and generally everything was to a high standard.

Disliked: Lacked a certain atmosphere, in terms of the friendliness of other travellers that you normally expect in a hostel. Perhaps the slightly higher price than other hostels encourages a less enthusiastic crowd? Could do with a couple more showers at peak times.

Liked: The rooms were well organised and the lockers with shelves and power points were a great addition

Disliked: The wifi charges were over priced. $40 a weeks pass?! $3 for an hours usage as that's not even unlimited it's capped at 200mb. Very poor. Also the connection was slow and unreliable. Was unable to FaceTime because it kept cutting out. I didn't like the fact you couldn't go on the roof past 9pm. Seemed a little odd. Also as a lone traveller I was unable to use the hot tub as the rules stated not to use it alone. The movie room was nice however the volume was so low I couldn't hear the film. Also the side lights kept going on and off. The gym was a disappointment as two pieces of equipment were out of order and there was no free weights. Hiring a diner set was a bit extreme. I personally did not think it was needed. Who's gonna steal a few cheap plates?? Having free tea and coffee was nice but there was no milk?! Showers were not hot in the evening. Room 104 door does not lock when closed so anyone can just push the door open. Noisy at night.
