An average hotel with good location
In general it is ok, the place need some upgrade. The lift lighting is dim, the floor under the bed is dusty, the metal tray in shower obstructive and no stopper to prevent water running out to the toilet area. People banging on the side exist door early on the Sunday morning if staying on the lower floor. The front desk staff is nice and the hotel location is very good.

Value for money
I stayed overnight with my sister for an event for the Emerging Writers' Festival 2017. Overall, we were pleasantly surprised at the value for money YTI Garden Hotel offers. This is definitely a good choice if you are travelling on a budget like we were. There are some points of consideration that I will take the time to outline, though. The room was adequate for what we paid, particularly in terms of its facilities. We were especially impressed by the toiletries provided by the hotel and how these were presented. However, some cleaning (dust; crumbs; tiny bit of mould) and maintenance (creaky wardrobe; air conditioner heating; stiff windows) is required. The staff were friendly enough when we were checking in and out. Otherwise, they seemed indifferent toward us. I would have appreciated it if they had shown a bit more interest in us, why we were staying, and so on like they did toward other people staying at the hotel. By staying at this hotel, we were in walking distance of numerous fantastic restaurants that we enjoyed. However, we could not find any entertainment and sightseeing nearby. Yet this wasn't an issue due to the short duration of and purpose of our trip. If you are planning to stay longer, then consider purchasing a rental car or another form of reliable transport, unless you want to do some walking to burn off all the food you will be eating. ;-) I share my gripes not to put you off this hotel, but simply as points of consideration. Excellent value for $.

Good hotel in excellent location
The location was absolutely brilliant. Just a short walk from Southern Cross Station, which makes it handy for getting the Skybus to and from the airport. Also basically right in the middle of the shopping area and just a short walk down to Federation Square. Lots of restaurants and cafes nearby, as well as a convenience shop at the end of the road. I stayed in the Standard Hotel Room, which had a double bed, private bathroom, and a little kitchen area with a fridge, cooker, and sink. The room was very spacious and well set out. The bathroom had a lovely, hot, powerful shower, a large mirror, and plenty of walk in space. The only downside was that I thought the towel rack was too high on the wall as I couldn't reach it very easily! But that is a very minor thing obviously. I found the staff very friendly and they greeted me upon leaving and entering the hotel, which I liked. The reception and doors are also open 24/7, which makes it good if you want a night out or an early start in the morning. I slept really well, despite being able to hear a bit of noise from outside. It was nothing major and didn't really distract me. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay at the YTI Garden Hotel and would definitely stay again. If you're looking for a standard, comfortable hotel in a fantastic location, this is definitely the one for you.

Very convenient hotel
The location is great, it's in the middle of everything. Very easy to find food, close to bourke street mall and melbourne central shopping centre. Close to Melbourne central train station and tram. If you just moved around in the city you can take any trams for free. Catch free tram to southern cross as well to take skybus to airport. The downside the room is not soundproof, you can hear noises from outside street and outside room easily. Bring ear plug, that will help. The bed is quite hard, which is unusual for hotel/apartment. Bathroom is basic and large. Cutlery for cooking also very basic, only found 1 spoon in studio apt. Should be at least 2 because the room is for 2 guests dont you think. The room is pretty clean. Lift is small but I never shared it with any other guest so no problem. Staff is friendly and helpful.
