Friendly staff
Stayed for 11 days. Though the aircon and TV stopped working several times, these were negligible as the staff were always ready to help. Their response time was also very, very quick. Everyone was so nice, accommodating and very warm. Enjoyed every minute of my stay. Will definitely go back and refer to my friends. Oh, forgot to mention that the location was superb. Just a few minutes to the city centre, less all the hustle and bustle if you stay within.

Very nice, inexpensive, great service. Although it is a budget hotel and there were limited outlets, no phone to call front desk the service was excellent. Dean and all the front desk people were very helpful.

Better options nearby, but not bad
Not a great experience, but the hotel is in a convenient spot between the uni and the city. Everything is easily walkable. They simply didn't clean the room one day. The wifi was really terrible, which made working from the hotel impossible (tough when you're on a business trip). Hotel has a little cafe on the ground floor, which serves an ok breakfast (closed by 3pm). The staff were generally friendly and helpful, though; can't fault them for any of this.

Was very clean, comfortable, staff were friendly and helpful every time I went to the desk. Comfortable bed, the only reason I would not stay again for several days is that there is no fridge or jug.

Tune - Some unforced errors, but a lot of Aces
Very typical budget hotel. No amenities...fridge, water kettle, ice machine ...the doors to your room is VERY hard to close and require you to slam them when you exit...very noisy at times during the evening when others are leaving their rooms. The staff (Dave in particular) was extremely helpful and made our stay more pleasurable. You will pay $22 to check in early (around 11am) or $32 if before that. Also $22 if you want to stay until 2pm on checkout. If you want new towels, leave the dirty ones out the door and get your fresh ones at the front desk (they give it to you in a great re-usable shopping bag that you can keep). Great laundry facility on the main floor - $2 per wash and $1 per 20 minutes to dry. The powdered soap is available at the front desk for $1 per load. Convenient location 5 min walk to queen Vic market, free tram zone 7-8 min walk to Melbourne university and little Italy
