Reviewed 18 April 2017

This was a great budget place to stay near the city centre with breakfast included and tea and coffee available at any time. Whilst the rooms were tiny there was a large living area downstairs. However if you have a car there is limited street parking. Also there is no lift.

Room Tip: If you have a lot of luggage try to get a first floor room.

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel Claremont. It is a walk away from the metro station and so many restaurants in walking distance to choose from. Our room was comfy and clean, and we enjoyed the continental breakfast. I love the architecture of this old building and found the staff to be very helpful and friendly.
We used public transit the whole time we were in Melbourne and it was great location for us even if we were not in the business Center. Everything was very enjoyable during our stay.

This place is a modern hostel type place in an old Victorian mansion. The rooms we had were tiny, bunks, desk, tv on the wall and open wardrobe rack. A fan (it was hot) heater, spare bedding. The bathrooms on each floor are a complete lockable shower room with toilet and basin, which makes shared bathrooms a much better prospect, like at home or at a mates place. It was quite noisy from the doors opening and closing, and street noise. So take ear plugs if you want this fantastic location and cheap price. Breakky is self serve toast, cereals, fruit etc. the dining and lounge area is inviting, the Wifi woefully slow. It's only a two min walk to the station, and two stops in to the city. On the weekends you can get cheap flat rate for parking in the nearby lane. We only paid $6 per day on the weekend. It's more during the week. Max $20 per day at that one. There are others.

I stayed with a friend here for 3 days 2 night in Nov 2016.The location was convenient if you use public transport such as tram or train (i preferred train).If you have rental car you might have to search available parking for a while.
The staff were friendly to help you,room and toilet were cleaned.The minor setback was only if only you are bringing quite heavy luggage and your room in upper floor,because there is elevator.Other than that it was a good stay.

Spent three nights in a double bunk bed room, all clean and perfect. Bathrooms always clean. Huge breakfast every morning. A bit noisy when some groups are coming, and when the fire alarm is running at 4:00 am!!... but perfect location and good stay overall!!
