There are better options in CBD Melbourne
Very noisy as it is in front of tram crossing street and train passing tunnel. Staff was with cocky attitude when I asked some things. Not enough baths for the quantity of hosts. Internet is so bad, that reminded me dial up era (even paid internet was bad, according to friends that paid for it). Stayed for couple of nights, and changed to another place in Queen St, and was totally different experience. Saw a rat in lobby, close to kitchen.
