All Nations is the place to stay in Melbourne if you want to have a great time. Located right in the CBD with amazing staff and management. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable and there's a lot of free food in the kitchen such as pancakes or pasta. Their bar next door is fun with cheap drinks and a...

It's a hostel with mostly young travellers staying there. Atmosphere is great and the staff really helpful. Bathrooms could be a bit cleaner but they weren't nasty or anything like that. Free pancakes in the mornings were a big plus for me!

Lovely hostel, the staff were all really interesting to talk to and went out of their way to help us and make us comfortable. They moved our rooms, let us check in early and even upgraded us because I wasn't having a very good day! All round fantastic people - particularly Julian, Gijs, Benny and a lovely lady whose name...

My 2 friends and I stayed here for 5 nights during our visit to Melbourne in November. We got confused and queued up in the travel agency downstairs but then soon realized we had gone through the wrong entrance. All good though, the girl in the shop happily showed us to the reception area. We had to go up a...

We were in a 4dorm and we had every night 2-4 mouses in our room (we took all our food downstairs in the kitchen and they still there...) I'm not scared of them, its just discusting..! The atmosphere is also "not comfy"...there is no other room to hangout than by the tables of the kitchen....and its not cleaned do well......

Hello, thank you for taking time to review our hostel. We understand that mice isn't acceptable. We are working very closely with pest control to make sure it doesn't happen again. We are also taking strict 'no food in rooms' policy as well to get quicker results. Our kitchen is cleaned throughout the day however it can be difficult to...

It is not quite bad if you are a backpacker . Overall is quite good. If I have a chance, I will visit there again. The staff are friendly, but sometimes it is a bit chaotic there. I still like it. One thing that should be improve is the Internet connection.

It's my second visit in Melbourne. In the CBD! everything is so close! The building is old, but so characteristic. Like my roommates, they where really nice! Love the free pancakes in the morning. Went every night to the Ubar! where they have special prices if you stay in this hostel.

This is the filthiest hostel I have ever stayed in. It's dirty, my room when I arrived had hair all over the floor and toe nails, bits of food and the room had only been moved into that day. Mice were running around the place and because the doors do not go all the way down to the floor and...

Thank you for your email. I am very saddened to hear you didn't enjoy your stay considering you stayed over a week with us. Mice is a major issue Melbourne has and we are getting on top of it, slowly but surely. Also being set in the middle of the city you are always going to have some outside noise....

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
