    Have stayed here on a few occasions, handy location on edge of CBD, friendly staff with good amenities.

    The best feature is the high standard of housekeeping in the rooms, which are kept very clean by the staff. The linen is good. The very nice senior housekeeper with a minimum of fuss fixed up a loudly creaking bunk frame. The staff were always pleasant and helpful. The bathroom lighting switches off after 10 minutes if the motion sensors are not activated. You might have to enter a pitch dark bathroom, or it can go dark while you are in there - there is no minimal lighting. The hostel suggests that you "do a dance". This arrangement may save electricity; it can also feel quite unsafe. In the main dining/lounge area a big TV plays almost 24/7, often with piped music too. People smoke near the front door - sometimes in groups of males; this can be offputting if you are arriving alone at night. If there is only one staff member there, it's not realistic for them to do anything about it.

    Awesome place to stay with affordable rate. Would definitely come again.

    Located in a relatively quiet area but close to bus and tram runs and a very clean hostel which is good value for the money - One of the best hostels in Melbourne - well recommended.
    Duncan Q July 2015
    Excellent facilities, very peaceful and quiet, comfy beds and warm blankets, overall a brilliant stay, but ladies - bring a hairdryer if you need it!
    Alexandra B July 2015
    The kitchen is a bit dirty. Noisy from people talking loudly in the corridor after night out drinking. Not suitable for family.
    Glory D July 2015

    Customer Reviews on

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
