Feels secure and safe, very close to the free tram lines into and around the city. Very close to the queen Victoria markets which are very much worth a visit. The hotel offers everything you would require as listed and they keep the rooms very clean and fully serviced. Receptionists very helpful when you have questions or queries.

The passageway to the rooms upstairs has a few little hangout spots which are semi-open and though everyone's washing is hanging from the rails there is a fun and bohemian like atmosphere which is quiet enjoyed.

Age Range: 18-24

This was an amazing hostel to stay in, we stayed here for a month and it felt like home, so hard to leave in the end. Almost every one of the staff was really friendly and helpful. The location is good, right beside the tram which runs straight to the CBD, and ten minutes walk from St Kilda Beach and Acland Street. The rooms were clean and spacious, with good air con. There was a great common area to meet new people in, and a separate Tv room which was comfortable and cosy. What a great place to stay.

It's pretty much exactly as described. First hostel I've been in which actually looks as good as the pictures. Everything is pretty new. Bathrooms are clean. Kitchen is totally awesome. And seriously could not be better located. If they can keep the place in good nick I'll definitely be back next time I'm in Melbourne.
