Opposite tram and McDonalds. Lots of 24hr convenience stores near by. Quiet room to sleep. A large lobby to relax. Functional shower. Shopping centers near by. Quiet/ safer (north) of the city. Small lockers for some items.

We arrived in our room to find the bed sheet to look unclean with a fair size oil stain on it. The room was right on Elizabeth st causing it to be a noisy location. I wanted a refund which they wouldnt provide as they said I had to claim through wotiff. To top it off we paid 110 and could have got it for 100 if we paid on arrival.

Hostel is too grandiose term, flophouse would be my description. I didn't expect a lot as this private room was the cheapest in Melbourne CBD. Despite me setting the bar very low, this 'hostel' failed to even attempt to reach this level. The rooms were disgustingly dirty, the bathrooms worse. You know you are in a low class establishment when the toilet is worse than a train station loo and there is an itemised list on the wall of the cost of each item you break.
