I booked a couple of weeks at the Pint on Punt so that I could settle in and get the lay of the land in Melbourne. Not only were the prices affordable, but the staff were helpful (reception is awesome). Also, there's a pub downstairs under the same ownership. Because of this, us backpackers got deals on food and drinks....

I've stayed here previously two times when I've been passing through Melbourne and it's literally just an average place to stay. Rooms are not exactly modern, bit run down but it does the job.

Stayed here for 3 nights in a private room. Friendly staff & free breakfast in the morning was provided & fair quality. Bathrooms and toilets were clean. Not too bad a location for CBD or St Kilda.

Stayed there for 2 nights. Room was smelling of old cigarette smoke. Kitchen not super clean. Shower and toilets were ok. Breakfast was only bread and jam and Weet-bix. Staff was friendly and helpful. Hostel is not too far from the city centre (taxi ride around 15-20$) Is ok for a few nights when visiting Melbourne.
