Great communal area. Clean and brilliant staff.
Erika N. (January 2015)
Everything good except for the room. Very small with tiny window - prison like. It smelt and I couldn't leave the window open much because it was just above a roof and not secure. Staff great. Good location.

Great communal areas, best kitchen I have come across so far. Love the roof terrace! Clean rooms and bathrooms.
Spent NYE in Melbourne Central YHA with friends. They organised a nice BBQ, we even won two free tickets for day tours! The roof terrace and the ground floor communal areas are very nice. Huge kitchen. Wifi isn't free though. Location is great: centr...
