Liked: It was quiet, the kitchen was clean and there was enough space to cook easily. The location is very convenient. The rooms were spacious and quiet. I asked for an extra pillow and got one so slept very well. The bathrooms are the nicest I've seen so far in a hostel.

Disliked: There wasn't a great atmosphere for meeting people. Most guests keep themselves to themselves. There are also families and older people using the hostel which actually isn't bad unless you are wanting to party!

Liked: Safe, secure, clean and very central to most of Melbourne. I was impressed with the rooftop balcony and the staff are mostly accomodating offering to help find places to see and go.

Disliked: There was not a lot of a social vibe happening however I was only at the hostel for one night, which probably made this difficult

Liked: The location was really convenient for exploring the city.

Disliked: My room was next to the outdoor lounge area so it was very noisy at times. it was especially annoying when there was a whole group of people outside at 12pm when your trying to sleep. The use of the lounge room wasn't regulated by the staff. The kitchen was small and often overcrowded. The hostel didn't provide towels or breakfast and you had to pay to store your luggage. One of the staff (younger female with long dark hair) was very rude and had an inappropriate customer service attitude. Other than the location and cleanliness, there were no pluses for this hostel and I would not stay again.

Liked: Clean and central location which is easy walking distance to Federation Square + Library for the free internet there. Easy to get to by following these directions

Disliked: Shame there wasn't a tv in the balcony section on first floor, as at times it was rather difficult trying to hear whats on tv when people are cooking in the kitchen

Liked: Free tram stop outside There was a desk & chair in room.

Disliked: Very noisy street Faclities list said USB flash card readers available at reception, this is not true. Very cold room & heater did not work so had to borrow the only portable fan heater from reception. That heater is not usually lent to customers. Very expensive when you consider that a good hostel in Cairns costs $16 per night. No hooks on the bunks Only 1 chair in room, no room for any more. Cleaners left stuff blocking the lift entrance on arrival.

Liked: YHA hostels are more like hotels...they are clean, friendly/helpful staff, secure and always in a good area. although if you are a true backpacker at heart it is not the place to meet likeminded travellers or party animals..
