3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2012

Stayed in a twin room. Pretty basic and the showers/toilets down the hallway. More of a basic backpacker style accommodation. It was however, clean and had what was needed. Breakfast was supplied, which was a continental style breakfast. It sufficed. There is no lift so if you are going to be on the top floor....be prepared to be lugging up your cases (got us fit in no time). The noise however from early morning revellers was a bit of an off-put so there you have it. The location is good, the trams and Sth Yarra train station are a stones throw....as long as you don't expect the Ritz and if your penny poor, then this will not disappoint. What you see is what you get.

Room Tip: If you have a party of more than two, would be pretty cheap if you don't mind bunk bed style acc...

Very clean hostel, free wifi, free breakfast. Rooms could be a little more cosy. Overall we liked our stay here. It's a very nice building with nice hardwood floors, gives it a warm feeling.

After reading other reviews on this site, I can only agree. Very pleasant helpful staff, great ambiance and decor, bathrooms always clean and available, we stayed in winter and the rooms were cosy, so nice to get in after roaming the cold Melbourne streets. Clean linen & towels provided, free 500mb wifi. Free basic breakfast. The location was superb. 2 mins walk to Chappell St. Tram out the front door to the city. 30 second walk to train station. IGA supermarket across the road. The only gripe would be that the rooms are very small. A single bed might fit ok, but the double bed took almost the whole room. We were on the first floor, and the first night it sounded like someone upstairs was practicing their dance routine until 1am, not too loud, but definitely a distraction. Other than that I'd recommend for any traveller on a budget. We'll stay there next time we go to Melbourne.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel might be quieter... our was at the back and mostly very quiet.
