This is a Trusted Review. Why?
The hostel is right in the centre of Melbourne CBD, this is the only positive thing I can say about it.
They ask AUD$50 , yes fifty dollars, as key deposit, the breakfast is limited to two slices of bread and one small bowl of milk and cereal, and one coffee, and worst of all the toilettes do not work, as well as the sinks, I had to shower at the lower floor, and in two days stay I was not able to wash my teeth!
Make yourself a favour, stay elsewhere.
The location is exelent. But that is IT. Stayed there for two nights. Stayed in a dorm with 10 other people, no air-condition and a pub right under. Could not get any sleep for two nights. And there is not only one pub but two in the same building.
