Liked: The price was reasonable.

Disliked: The bathrooms are a bit below scratch, and the roommates are a bit messy compared to people you'd see at a YHA hostel.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: Avoid at all costs!! Close to Queen Victoria Markets. Serviced well by trams. Gets shady at night. No elevators, so be prepared to climb 3 floors of stairs with heavy luggage. Booked a twin room. Room came with 1 bunk, a fan, and a fridge. Room was more like a 4x4 cell. No windows and very hot. Toilets on the 3rd level, where we were located, we're messy. Staff at reception were very hard to understand. Not sure what the reception guy was doing, but when we approached he was pulling up his pants and trying to buckle his belt. Be prepared to part with your ID, as security for the room key, or pay a 30 buck deposit. Far far far better options for cheap hostel accommodation in the city. I suggest Discovery Melbourne, which is just a short walk away. Or Urban Central, located close to Crown Casino. I can not stress enough. Avoid at all costs.

Liked: Walking distance to city centre, clean double room, friendly staff

Disliked: The bedsheets and pillowcases were interesting....they had outlines of strippers and pink hearts all over it! Also, was not the quietest place (can here people moving around and talking outside), but that's to be expected of a backpackers.
