What this hostel lacks in beauty she makes up for in lovely staff and friendly guests. Hostel was super social and central and a great place to stay! They even do free cheese and wine and free pasta! Would recommend to a friend 😊

Quite possibly the worst night I’ve ever had at a backpackers hostel (and I’ve stayed at a lot!). The reception staff were friendly and helped with my booking troubles, but the room itself was absolutely disgusting. I walked in and the other 5 people in...More

Bad hostel, no music no funny people. Bathroom are dirty, no open window in room. Free breakfast is ridiculous and there are no space in the fridge. Very very bad. No refound quotes. Choose other one. Cheers

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
