Having arrived in Melbourne at 4am after a 26 hour flight from the UK, I was worried I'd have to hang around in the city centre until 11am or 2pm for a check-in, but for a small fee they let me check-in at 7am! A great and welcome start!
The room was quiet, comfortable and had all the amenities one could wish for in a budget establishment. The shower was lovely, the bed was comfortable, TV was good, and a big bedside table for all your needs.
Basic - yes, but of great comfort.
Stayed for 5 nights while presenting at a conference, and this would be first choice if I came to Melbourne again.
Reasons for 4-star rating instead of 5:
* No housekeeping on a weekend, based on my experience. I put a 'please clean' sign on my door on Friday evening, and by Sunday it was still untouched. This is a minor thing, so 4.5 stars would be accurate.
