Liked: Great old-world charm with tastefully restored interior and furnishing; very clean beds and bathrooms; very reasonable price with good spread of continental breakfast; good location between CBD and St Kilda and near shops, restaurants and tram stop

Disliked: Some of the staff were not very friendly and helpful; hotel could've organised more activities and tours for guests; other than that, no complaints

Liked: It is very central to everything you need if you're backpacking. The area is fairly active and quite dog friendly. Lots of different places to eat and have a nice café latte! The train station is about a minute walk from the main door. Great breakfast if you like tea, cereal and sliced pears and peaches. The price for our room seemed appropriate.

Disliked: There is a lot of construction going on at the moment, so you have an alarm clock set early whether you like it or not. Toorak Road is expensive, so look carefully for decently priced meals. Eating out can add up quickly.

Liked: Quiet. Quick and easy trip into the city.

Disliked: Electrical sockets were difficult to get at because of how furniture was squeezed into the tight space--not that the room was too small, just that the furniture didn't fit very well.

Liked: The BEST hostel i have ever stayed at! And ive stayed in lots in Australia and the world. Charming property. Old world charm. Modern clean facilities and rooms. The best of a hotel, the best of a hostel. Towels and soap, tv in twin room. Complimentary breakfast and kitchen staff. Great location for chapel street shopping. Individual toilet and shower combo facilities. And the staff! A man behind the desk noticed that a weird man was talking to us outside the hostel and then offered to walk us to the station for saftey. Your own personal bodyguard! We felt very appreciative and impressed. We cant wait to come back.

Disliked: Absolutely nothing. For the price, extraordinary value.

Liked: Hotel was very clean, bathroom and kitchen accommodations were great.

Disliked: A little far from the central area of Melbourne but it was very close to the train station and was a short ride away - so it was not too inconvenient.
