i got to the hostel at 12:30AM, the power was out so could not check in. the staff working were unprofessional about the entire situation (save one younger male who was working desk- thank you), including about three young females discussing how they were "too drunk to deal with this." Totally understandable that this was beyond anyone's control but could have been dealt with better and at that point those waiting to check in after midnight (about 5 of us) should have been given a free night.
room 205 has a window that is boarded over, with a bunk pushed up against it. the overhead pipes make SO MUCH NOISE whenever people are showering or flushing which is pretty disgusting and obviously goes on all day and night. our room was also full of mosquitos...as it was rainy and cold outside i have no idea where they were coming from and we could not open a window to let them out. kitchen is very small but fridges and food storage are plenty.
i have stayed in other rooms even on the same floor before and they were much better. i think the hostel is just hit or miss really.
positives i would say are proximity to yarra and the station. showers are hot though and for the most part bathrooms were clean.
