The Metro YHA is a bit further out than I was expected - about a 45 minute walk into the city. (I tried taking the tram but ended up paying a fortune!) There are get-to-know-you activities organised but the one I went to, everybody seemed to already know each other and didn't seem up for chatting to new people which...

I spent a weekend in Melbourne and stay here for one night. The room and toilet are very clean. The staff are helpful. The location is good just a few minutes to Queen Victoria Market. I have met some fellow traveller and share both our experience!

I currently sit here at 2:30am trying to get to sleep, (for the past 3 hours), the rather large older lady in the bottom bunk is snoring EXTREMLY loudly, so loudly that it's vibrating the bed. A fine definition of a sleep apnea patient. I recorded this said lady and wandered down to reception to be advised there is nothing...

Stayed here with my daughter. It's a little way out of the city centre, but within walking distance of all the major sights. The rooms are clean and spacious. We booked a private room with shared facilities, which were just across the corridor. This was good in terms of convenience but a bit noisy with the bathroom door slamming until...

The hostel is nice and clean, especially the lounge room looked very nice. It is a little bit far from the airport and the rooms looked a bit 'oldish', but it's good enough to stay a few nights. Had a nice stay.

We stayed in one of the private rooms and were given a family room for just the two of us which was very spacious. The beds were very comfy and the room was clean. It did get hot but the fan helped and we did stay there during one of the hottest weeks of the year. I think the location...

This Hostel has all the usual amenities you can come to expect from a YHA, friendly staff, good sized rooms, plenty of personal space and a great kitchen. Only its location far out of town lets it down, but then that's a minor thing and the walk into town takes about 10mins! The size of this place is much bigger...
