Liked: The hostel has a good vibe. It gives a family-like feeling. There are lots of people here staying for a longer time. It's easy to get contact with other people. The internet connection was good and there were always a few computers available. The location is great, Collingwood is a really nice district and has lots of shops and restaurants. Lentils As Anything is within walking distance and definitely a place to visit.

Disliked: Some guests are in charge of the cleaning. It really depends on them how clean the hostel is. People smoke so if you're asthmatic this might not be the best place for you to stay.

Liked: It has such unique character and people are like living there instead of 'staying' there. It's an old edgy place with basic cleanliness and facilities, a little bit disorganized but I enjoyed the personality of the place and people. Internet is almost like free! Overall happy!

Disliked: The check-in check-out could be little disorganized but I'm okay with it as I wasn't in a rush. Actually, it's so cool I didn't have to check out! Staff was nice.

Liked: free internet (no wireless lan)

Disliked: I have never seen such a dirty hostel. the beds in the rooms smell very ugly, so you can't sleep. you have snails in your room and you never want to see the bathroom or the toilet. Dirty is an understatement!

Emily Everitt

13 January 2010 Emily would recommend this property

Liked: I had such a great stay at Collingwood. I stayed here 2 months into my travels and decided that these slightly shabbier, more homely hostels are what travelling is all about. Yes it was full of smokers (I don't smoke) and no it wasn't the cleanest place but character, I learnt, is so much more important than all those things. For my first two nights in Melbourne I stayed in a clean secure hostel in the CBD with my own plug socket, bedside table with dimmer light and my own lockable wardrobe but you could walk around it all day and never meet anyone, it had no soul. Collingwood is a 5 min tram ride to the CBD and you can actually walk it in about 30 mins cause lets face it, you're probably not that busy that you can't walk 30 mins into town whilst chatting away with your new friends! On my second day Paul (the owner) arranged a BBQ, the whole hostel attended like a big family. Then Paul decided not to charge anyone for it, what a legend! This hostel is perfect for the lone traveller, it attracts the most lovely laid back people you could hope to meet and you are sure to make some great friends. Thanks for a great stay.
