Peter The highlight of this hotel is the pool and is really reason enough to visit. You see, it has a glass bottom at one end and is something like 12 floors off ground level. Slightly scary, but also a rather fun experience. Even though it wasn't the warmest of days when we visited, we still had to give the pool a go. The rooms are nice too -very well decorated. The hotel has a fairly quiet feel to it. Located on Little Collins, it's near heaps of great bars and restaurants. Would definitely like to go here again one day, maybe when it's a bit warmer ;)
Peter This is a grand old hotel and has a great charm to it. We stayed in the older wing of the hotel which was a little run down, but still a very enjoyable room. It's in a great location directly opposite Parliament. You can easily walk around the city from here. If you want some nice food, the European is a good pick right near here or for drinks head to the Supper Club.
Sander This is really a budget hotel, which happens to have a tiny kitchen on the second floor, and thus also can function as a hostel. As such, it unfortunately lacks all hostel atmosphere. If you book a private room, you will need to explicitly ask about that kitchen to have your room key recoded to provide access, as you won't find information about its existence anywhere. Staff is friendly enough, and the location is great (right next to Errol Street, for some great restaurant options), but WiFi is freakishly expensive. Definitely not bad, but know what you're getting.

freya.lewis Although I am only 21 I have had the chance to travel quite extensively across the world, yet Collingwood backpackers has been my first experience of staying in a hostel. I had tended to avoid backpacker places before now, having heard less than pleasant things about them and the wild guests they attract. After traveling 40 hours to get to Australia, me and my brother found ourselves lost in Collingwood and contacted the hostel. Paul, the owner, was kind enough to come and find us and take us there. The area itself is amazing, full of great bars and coffee shops. It is not for the prim and precious, but rather for those who want something different and a bit weird. During the day you can find some of the best food in Melbourne here and at night it caters for a variety of musical tastes, whether it is dance hall to psychobilly. Collingwood is also home to some fantastic skate shops and record stores and is just off from Brunswick street, one of the best shopping streets in Australia. The locals themselves are some of the most pleasant people I have met and always make the effort to help you with anything you need. The hostel itself is like no form of accommodation I have seen. It is full of charm and character, which is something that I have found absent in all of the places I have stayed in, both previously and afterward. From its eclectic collection of music and film posters to the eccentricity of its guests, this hostel provides a fantastic atmosphere. As a new and nervous traveler to Australia who is also traveling with a younger sibling, it is this that which I praise above all else. Here, everything is completely safe and everyone treats each other with respect. In response to the very few negative reviews you will read about this hostel I will say this, that more often than not these reviews will have been written by those who frequent five star hotels. Having stayed in many myself I can honestly say that if such quality as this was reflected in every hostel I stay in I would abandon the sterile rooms and snobby staff of five star hotels forever. Collingwood has truly become a home from home and I would recommend anyone to stay here. Freya
