Tatty and a bit smelly

This is a very non-YHA hostel. Feels like an independent one. Staff very blase, non-welcoming and too cool to be in customer service. This is such a shock as my experiences of YHA hostels in Australia and New Zealand to-date have been excellent. I'm really disappointed. Room was incredibly basic, beds were creaky, and once again, it felt like a cheap independent hostel. And it smells of old socks. I intended to stay here a few nights but didn't.

Absolute gem of a hostel

Spotlessly clean hostel, really comfortable. Staff who are willing to go out of their way to make you feel welcome, and who know what they are talking about, amazing lounge on the top floor with barbie space and wonderful views of Melbourne. Close to city and just around the corner from Victoria Markets but located on a quiet street so you're guaranteed a peaceful night's sleep. :D :D :D :D :D
