Discovery Melbourne Hostel, Melbourne
Fair2.0 / 5
Definitely made for college backpackers
I had a private room. The bed was clean, but the room was bare bones - a bed and two stools as side tables. Being a hostel, it was really loud all through the night with doors opening and slamming shut. The shared bathroom was smelly, and felt like a public park bathroom. The shower fortunately had hot water and good water pressure which can be a luxury at hostels. This hostel is made for college kids and low budgets, so definitely know that this is what you're getting into.The one good thing is its location. Make sure you bring flip flops to wear everywhere - I wouldn't touch anything with a bare foot.

Random breakfast
Even if you pay for breakfast you are in luck if you get any. Two mornings they were out of bread. One morning they were out of breakfast and suggested us to BUY warm food with an additional cost. If you want to have the service you pay for, choose another place.
