Was exactly what I expected and paid for. Very convenient for the CITY, MCG and Richmond which were all places I was visiting. Close to Public Transport, clean and neat en-suite facilities.

Overpriced

Room was loud, shower was cold, rubbish in the hallway. Lucky it was for one night only.

Nice simple inexpensive place to stay

Inexpensive, clean and comfortable. Watch out for unusual office hours, may need to phone staff to get in.

Convenient location

Pros: Great location and had a good vibe.
Cons: A mirror in the room and possibly a second bathroom on the floor
Location: Good access to trams, shops eateries.
Good clean hotel at a reasonable price. Room was clean and roomy, was disappointed with no mirror anyway inthe room and the only one in the single bathroom on the floor.

Good budget option

Pros: Location was excellent. Room was good value for money
Cons: Hot water was a bit hit and miss
Location: Location was excellent. Not right in the city but only a few tram stops away.
I was in Melbourne for the weekend to experience Moomba and the city. While the room was basic it did cater to my needs and was in a nice location (especially when I arrived after midnight and there was a 24hr McDonalds up the road). The only downside was a lack of hot water at some times during my stay which made showering a game of cat and mouse. It's above a pub and I do regret not having time to head down and check it out. Supplied towels and toiletries were a nice surprise for the price I paid :)
