    The place is clean, location is good, everything is well organised and most of all and lots of nice people. They really make an effort to organise activities in the bar or outside. A very good place to stay!

    The staff was friendly and very helpful. It was not a problem when i wanted to change rooms at all. There are free pancakes every morning. The kitchen is a bit small for so many people maybe. The rooms were clean, the bathrooms were ok.

    Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
    tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
    feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
    city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
    throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
    never quite know what you’ll find around the next
    corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
    even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
