4.4 based on 5 reviews
Meh, so so. Fairly clean, affordable. Way more quiet than CBD choices. I didn't find it particularly clean or dirty, but the facilities show their age. It's definitely a "basic" quality big hostel. The YHA Central for example is modern and most people would prefer it over this location. Fantastic rooftop at this location though (that is worth a whole extra star). They offer yoga sometimes, wine+cheese+movie nite other times. No discount for HI/YHA members.
Great staff, very clean and comfortable hostel with events every day of the week and free bbq Fridays and Sundays! Having the Queen Victoria Market a 7 minute walk away is extremely helpful as well. Especially for backpackers on a budget. Really nice, safe area as too.
The best hostel I have stayed at. Stayed for about a week, good distance from the market and free tram so it's easy to get around. The kitchen can use some cleaning because of the travellers but all in all very clean otherwise and really friendly staff! Had to switch to Nomads mid week stay because I didn't book anymore nights and they were sold out for a night and went back immediately after.
It was a really good stay. Nice staff and very helpful. Good food facilities and a guest kitchen. Good rooftop with an great view of the city. And it's also quiet so that's a big bonus. Only downside is that the power points in the dorm rooms are not next to the bunk beds so that if you want to charge your phone you can't have an alarm on because you'd have to get out of bet to turn it off. Another inconvenience is that the cupboard aren't supplied with there own locks but the reception does sell locks though. All in all a good place and if you want somewhere close to the city and at a cheap rate this is the place for you
Melbourne Metro YHA has some interesting information on why Australia is called the land down under?
Australia is known as 'the land Down Under' for its position in the southern hemisphere. The discovery of Australia began when European explorers searched for land under the continent of Asia. Before Australia was discovered, it was known as Terra Australis Incognita the unknown southern land.
