We stayed here after reading some of the reviews and took a chance for three nights in October.... it was of good value in a great location close to trams, Lygon street and several other places we wanted to visit within walking distance. The apartment itself had its ups and downs, the bedroom was of a good size, bed clean...

Stayed here for 4 nights - great value for what was very cheap Melbourne city accomodation. Tram stop right out the front but really walking distance to most things. Apartments were clean, quiet and nicely presented. Would stay again

Had a wonderful stay for 5 nights. The place is close to everything like RMIT, shopping centr, market and only a few mints drive to some of the must see places in Melbourne. Staff are friendly and the customer service is good. The corridor is a little smelly but rooms are good.

The good: It's cheap accommodation just 5 minutes walk from Melbourne Central. They made up our room 1/3 nights we stayed there! The not so good: 1. The heater in the room did not work 2. The hot water in the shower was hit and miss 3. The bed is hard! 4. The parking is incredibly limited 5. The smells...

Plum Apartments in Carlton are a reason place to stay if you are looking for cheap accommodation. A small couch, table with cooking facilities. The apartment is in a large block of units/rooms in the university district. It was fairly clean, the bed was fairly new with a firm consistency. Very small TV, certainly you could not watch it from...

A great location if you're visiting Uni Melb, but that's where it ends. This is shoe box student accommodation which seems to be more someone's tax write off rather than a commercial customer focused offering. We stayed on level 1. Carpets in the hallway and the carpet in the hallway and the apartment was putrid. The appartments itself smelled terrible...

Excellent location. Clean rooms. Although it was slightly noisy at night time due to trams, etc, it did not disrupt our sleep. Our room was on the first floor as well. The 1 bedroom apartment was a bit of a tight squeeze with the roll away bed, but this was easily folded up and put to one side every morning.

Once checked in I made my way to the room, the room was neat and clean, the layout was a studio apartment - kitchen and bathroom. Situated right at the front of the tram stop and only a short walk into the city makes it a great location. I stayed in a room located at the rear so it was...

Nice size studio apartment, good location. Just walk 10 mnts to CBD. Trams in front of your door. Close to Melbourne University. Many restaurants around. We stayed at 2nd floor, so it was a bit noise from the road and trams. But overall we enjoyed our stay.

The hotel staff named Brad, is an extremely shameful aggressive person who is a shame for this hotel. He doesn't give a damn about the cockroaches in the room and can yell at you at the top of his lung. There were cockroaches on both rooms he gave me and he could not even be bothered giving any refund or...

“Probably rooms that face away from the main streets may be quieter. Road noise was not excessive.”

“I don't think any room would be better than another, it's all pretty budgety! That said, there is a bit of tram noise in the room we had.”
