Backpacking / gap year

22 April 2014

Liked: Great location, nice room

Disliked: Kitchen was WAY too small for a hostel of this size - I don't know how anyone found space to cook anything in there; most houses have a bigger kitchen. The fridges were actually outside, open to the back alley all day so anyone could steal your stuff whether they were staying in the hostel or not. Bathrooms were dirty. Staff were unhelpful and unmotivated. Nice roof terrace but it felt like sitting on the concrete roof of a multistory car park. They could have done so much more with it. Luggage room wasn't very secure - it was out of sight of reception down a back corridor and they handed out the key to anyone who asked. Room was nice but it was expensive for a dorm. Wifi was expensive. The only reason I stayed there was because my tour departed from there the following day, but as I arrived in the morning of the first day and had to change rooms for the tour I literally spent 10 hours over 2 days sitting in the cafe next door using their free wifi and waiting until I could check in as I wasn't comfortable leaving my day pack of valuables in their luggage room and didn't really want to drag it around Melbourne either. I wouldn't recommend this place - you can do better in Melbourne for less money.

24 November 2013

Liked: It was near to the Victoria market

Disliked: It's dirty there. The showers and the toilets weren't clean. Everywhere was toilet tissue on the floor. It smells bad eveywhere. The kitchen was not small, it was like a storeroom, no space in the fridges, very messy and untidy. We had to check out after a hard night and waited for 4 hours to check in again. The beds are old and squeak with every move you make. And there were 8 beds in each room that squeak. The luggage room was to small for all the luggage.
