“Unclean and no air-con”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

Thank goodness I only stayed here for one night. Even though this hostel has great friendly staff, the state of it is not great. Both the bathrooms and dorm rooms were unclean and even though we were in Australia there was no air con in the hostel making it very hard to sleep at night! For the price I paid I felt very let down in what I got. Would definitely not recommend.

This is a huge hostel! We only stayed one night becuase they were fully booked. The kitchen facilities are very limited and common areas to small. Even if you're not planning on using the kitchen (Which is packed all the time) there is no place to sit down and eat or just hang out.

The noise wasn't as bad as expected for such a large hostel. Because of the pub downstairs, snorry guests and the train outside the window they offer free earpluggs.

It also has it's own tour agency, and they were extremly helpfull. They could answer a lot of questions, and they weren't pushy like many other agencies.

The location is good, and it's about a 5 minute walk to the southern cross station, two more minutes for the super market and about 15-20 minutes to the city center.

Probably one of the noisiest hostels I have ever stayed in with the tram and train line right outside the window. Even with silicon ear plugs the noise was quite overwhelming. The room was also very hot so couldn't shut the window to keep out the noise. Bathrooms and common areas were also very crowded. On the plus side the staff were very friendly and the 4 bed dorm was reasonably spacious. Location is also very handy. However I wouldn't recommend this simply for the noise.

The hostel in general was very dirty. There was nothing in the bedroom besides a bed,nothing to put your stuff on but the floor. Also had terrible bathrooms, only unisex bathrooms with no hot water. It is located next to trams, so it is close to stations in the centre, but really noisy.

The location is good, very close to the Southern cross station and close enough to the beating city center. Rooms are big and clean, bathroom and toilets ok. The kitchen is a bit small but clean enough.

I was very happy with this accommodation and I would book here again. Pros: Great low price per night plus I received an unexpected complimentary upgrade from an 8 bed room to a 4 bed room. Very convenient location! Easy walk to Southern Cross Station, the exhibition centre and the Casino. It is centred in the heart of Melbourne CBD so I was able to walk around the city quite easy. If you don't like walking Nomads all nations is close to the free city circle tram plus other lines. I also found the bed very comfortable. Cons: Traffic outside was very noisy. I would not have been able to sleep without good ear plugs and an eye patch/sleep mask. Otherwise I can't complain.

Generally a good place to stay, clean, comfortable and 'homely', (very) close to transport however...

Transport noise an issue in some rooms.

Resolve issues with internet access (0.05Mb/s simply isn't usable - and is likely to be due to faulty configuration or hardware within the hostel).

Fix broken stove tops in kitchen.

More fridge space would be useful.

Room Tip: 'Outside' rooms are very noisy due to proximity to road/tram, consider paying extra for a sm...
