AMAZING! Feb 02, 2012
Ok now this is subject to change obviously because things change with time, staff, ownership etc. However when i was there Feb of 2012 this was THE hostel in Melbourne. The staff here were awesome and friendly, the hostel was rather large, housing a good 150 travelers. 3 floors of rooms, topped off with the community area with a large kitchen, 5 computers, a pool table, a piano, a massive dining area, a big tv room with many couches and access to the roof. The roof had an awning with a long picnic table under it, an electric bbq, chairs and tables, great place to catch some or sit under the awning and enjoy the shade breeze and fresh air. Party spot on the weekends for sure, dorm room floors were always quiet and the noise from upstairs never bled through. This hostel also lets you do cleaning shifts for them in exchange for a free nights accommodation, if your persistent you can pick up a cleaning shift 4 or 5 nights a week and stay here almost for free! Which is a big deal because this place its a bit expensive but was worth every penny! I think i was paying out 220 AUD a week. Not bad if your working in Melbourne, averaging 600 - 800 a week as normal jobs do. If your ever in Melbourne this is where you want to stay for sure!!
