I stayed here on a school camp a few years ago so I decided to give it a shot as an adult traveller.

We stayed on level 5, which is the private room floor and the top floor of the establishment. You might not like the view - either of City Road or the freeway, but for the price, I am happy.

You will find a room with an ensuite is spacious enough; you'll get a shower timer built into the shower head, (12 minutes max and it beeps at you every minute) a sink, toilet, kettle, tea coffee and milk (milk shots - and a substantial amount of milk shots.) It's perfect for couples.

The only thing is that Urban Central is a backpackers for 90% of the building. This may annoy some guests, but I found the noise to not bother me - the most annoying noises were environmental- loud mufflers or motorbikes.

It is also close to transport: the #12 tram goes past the door, and you can walk up to Crown and catch the St Kilda tram.

The place also employs people who are hard of hearing, which is a nice bonus. (And backpackers.)

When you check in you have a $10 AUD key deposit which you get back.

Stayed: April 2018, travelled as a couple

We stayed here for three nights and loved it. Hostel is in a great location, a tram stop is less than a minute walk, Woolworths about 5 minutes and the train station 10 minutes.

Melbourne offers plenty of shopping and nightlife. There is a free tram circuit that takes you around the centre of Melbourne for free too! Tram costs $4.80 for a two hour trip (tap on and off within the two hours)

The hostel is very clean and the staff are very friendly. Kitchen is large with plenty of fridge space and utensils, crockery etc. Great facilities for washing, ironing etc and the booking desk and reception staff are also all very friendly and helpful.

The only thing I found strange was after you washed up, the kitchen cleaners would then put everything in the dishwasher.

I would definitely come and stay here again when I am next in Melbourne!

I stayed in a private room on the 5th floor which was very quiet - got a great night's sleep.
The rooms are clean and comfortable and the ensuite bathroom is very nice.
Tea and coffee provided on a tray which is nice but not topped up by housekeeping in the mornings - this would be nice particularly when you are staying a few nights.
Kitchen is spacious and nice to cook in.
Good location very close to the CBD.
I lost my ring in the room after checking out and the receptionist on duty was so helpful and helped me look twice until I found it.

Room Tip: The private rooms on the 5th floor are good for a break from a shared room.
