Liked: What an experience !!!!!! Not just the place - the people. Awesome. I will never stay anywhere else in Melbourne. This is a real backpackers not a hotel. Understand that before you book. Cant wait to go back - and the hula hoop girl :-)

Disliked: Absolutely nothing, you learn heaps from this place. Its modern art at its finest

Liked: The staff are full of heart and character and so is the building. This is by far the cheapest hostel in town and it is in an excellent location. If you want the standard sterile hostel then this definitely will not be your choice. This is the budget choice but let me tell you that there is something very magical about this quirky abode and I shall return to stay with a big smile on my face and awaiting me :)

Disliked: I do not dislike this hostel but do not expect a 24hr reception or everything handed to you. If you want wifi: go explore the tarantinoesque neighbourhood of coffeeshops, bars and restaurants. Hint: there is a bar (Forgotten times) and a laudromat (Soapranos) within 1 minute of the hostel. If you want a hot shower make sure (like most hostels) that you shower before everyone else.

Liked: Good location if you like the Hipster area of Melbourne! Cheap!

Disliked: The wifi didn't work, there was no hot water in the showers, no soap in the bathrooms. The included plastic cutlery was not washed properly, one bathroom door was broken, the dorm was extremely hot to sleep in. There was no washing detergent in the kitchen and most rooms need some maintenance. In the morning you were woken up by staff members who started hoovering in the room. They played very loud trance music while cleaning and the backyard was full of people getting high. But if you're a young backpacker this might be the vibe you're after. The promised entrance codes weren't sent to you, so I recommend you be at the hostel during check in hours.

Liked: Easy to get there from the city.

Disliked: It wasn't that clean there. One morning there were 3 people sleeping in front of our door in the hallway. They can't really check who goes in and out there. In our room there was now glass in the window.

Liked: You get what you pay for. This is a pretty good hostel if you are on a budget and willing to let one or two things slip. The staff was extraordinarily nice and all the facilities are there. The price I have paid was unheard of in other parts of the country and since I am on a budget and not picky it was pretty good!

Disliked: You have to be willing to overlook one or two flaws. Let it be a not working water tap in the kitchen or a shower that might not be up to par with your standards of hygiene. Smelly feet and loud noise can happen anywhere.

Liked: Amazingly huge, quiet and comfy lounge area - with great music. Super friendly and helpful staff. Cool location near Abbotsford (AND Abbotsford Convent, home of the institution : Lentils as Anything). It's probably the lowest price accommodation you can find in Melbourne city.

Disliked: It's very basic, not so clean, but I guess you get what you pay for. It's decent for the price you pay.
