So. I like the look of the hostel. The graffiti on walls, the lounge, the new bathrooms.. all good when it comes to that. And the area is generally awesome. Easy to get to everywhere, good, artsy style. But. I know, that hostels are not the quietest usually. And a lot of people party there. And maybe it was just...

I came here with the intention of staying 5 nights and barely made it through 4; this place was so dirty, my bedding was severely stained, the bathrooms never had toilet paper were always disgusting. The staff is unapproachable and they clearly don't care about this place; so the people who stay here don't either. One of the managers has...

I've stayed at quite a lot of hostels and Hostel Plus is up in my top favourites. The bathrooms were all clean, the outdoor area had a great atmosphere and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. If i return to Melbourne I will definitely come back to this hostel

Booking mistake, noisy at night, dusty bed and malfunctioning facilities like broken toilet, long wait, and drunken customers going wild all night. One good thing was the location, easy access to CBD and busy restaurant area. Would not recommend to girls travelers.

WiFi didn't work, facilities were ok, but the walls are paper thin, and any noise is echoed throughout the building. Also, the beds are really creeky. Upon booking my bed, I emailed asking for advice on getting transport to the hostel, but I received no reply. *I ended up getting a taxi which cost near $70* I had noted that...

This is a nice place. The staff is welcoming and helpful. The wall have a nice street art style decoration. The common areas are clean, large and functional. The beds are better in some rooms than others but overall satisfying. The toilets are clean and the first shower I randomly picked was immaculate! The location is great, only 3 blocks...

We stayed there for 3 nights and I can't recommend this hostel to anyone. The staff was nice and helpful, but the kitchen is really dirty and there is not enough pans and pots so you can't really cook there. Some of the customers were drunk old aussies who farted in the rooms and were just being rude. Also there's...
