A bit of a tatty old building on the outside, but well kept and clean inside. Staff are helpful and generally friendly. The building is very secure. A safe hostel for women. Not a party hostel, so no drunks or rowdy people in the halls at night. If you don't mind the sound of trams, its position on Flinders Street on the edge of the CBD is very convenient. There is a tram stop right outside, which includes the free tourist tram circuit. Offers good tours and trip packages. Very near to Southern Cross station with links to airport, and the the South Bank area for restaurants, bars and entertainment. Rooms were good. Room service very efficient. Kitchens are closed for several hours every afternoon in order to properly clean them, which I liked, although the kitchens can get crowded if everybody uses them at once. Dorms are spacious enough, although the windows in some could do with replacing. Good value for money hostel.
