Everything fine but there's a lot of old crazy people, I had to change my room because I couldn't even look at my phone without "disturbing" this old lady that started to scream at me...

The hostel is located in a nice area of Melbourne, close to the tram and it doesn't take long to get to the city center. At the hostel there are some nice areas where you can hang out and meet other people. Staff are very helpful. Lots of things going on at the hostel. Love the rooftop with the view over the city. Would be nice if there were something you could hang your jacket on in the rooms. The free WiFi is slow and so is the premium one, that could be better. I would gladly stay here again

Add a tray in toilet for sharing some free shampoos, conditions, face cleaner and so on... Add a tray for collecting some clothes or shoes or bags for donation.
