    I booked in last minute and got a great price. The customer service was a little chaotic with no clear service desk when i arrived. When i stood for a while next to check in a security guy ignored me for ages then sent me over to the bar. The guy who served me then was lovely, couldn't do more to help and was always smiling whenever i saw him about. He seemed to br only one who really knew what was going on. The biggest disappointment was all the plastic cutlery and polystyrene cups. Come on! Such a waste of plastic, huge shame. Everyone should be making the effort to be more eco now, especially in a place like Melbourne which is pretty forward thinking. Loved the refurb look and the chill out space on level 3, although some sort of quiet after 10pm rule might have been nice. It was noisy from the bedroom some nights. Also in room 307 some of the beds were positioned so the ladders were inaccessible. Overall i had a good stay, exactly what i wanted from a hostel, cheap and somewhere to get my head down before leaving Melbourne.
