Stay two nights in 4 beds dorm, it would be nice to have at least one socket near the reading lamp. Free street parking from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. Close to many restaurants and famous Victoria Market. Other attractions are in walking distance.

Recycling bins could be added to encourage travellers to recycle rather than put in rubbish bin

A great place to stay in Melbourne especially with the new free tram within the CBD which makes it easier and cheaper to get into the city.Just as good a stay as on previous occasions several years ago.
