Hello Suzy, We are truly surprised to hear you had such a negative experience with us. With so many discrepancies with your stay, at any stage did you inform anyone of our friendly staff in our 24 hr reception? If we had of known at any stage you were not happy, we certainly would of done what we could of to lift your experience with us. Which I am sure you would agree, would of been a much better outcome for you and NSKB. We hope you have safe and happy travels in future. You will be happy know we did an audit on our coffee mugs, and we have removed the chipped mug from circulation, thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Classic Australian Hostel...rowdy and unashamed

Good place for meeting new people, good social vibes not so good for getting a proper nights sleep. The most noisey hostel I have ever stayed in, didn't die down until around 2 am. Didn't have locked closet space beside bed like most hostels do, I think it was under each bunk which you have to share. Overall decent budget accommodation but Melbourne does offer better budget accommodation.

Good location

Good for a backpackers stay. Nice bathrooms rooms clean but small. Friendly and helpful staff made the experience. No lift only stairs but late check out available.

It was an experience that's all I can say

It's was different that's all I can say for a cheep backpackers hotel I guess you couldn't really expect any more Perhaps just a better bathroom considering it's a shared one for the that area

Pros: Close to the bowls club
Cons: Squeeky bed, and could hear the outside noise. Loud music plays until midnight. So expect to be awake until 12am.
Don't expect anything but a bed for the night. Which is what we needed. Some of the windows were missing, no plastic or guards were up for protection.
