    I stayed here:

    I’m an Aussie, was just staying in Melb for a holiday and this place was cool. It’s close to the Crown Casino, right on the tramline, and nice and new.

    I stayed earlier this year at the YHA Melbourne Central and it was wonderful. The free loop tram was outside the front door, you can buy a package with breakfast from the cafe next door, there is a bar at the hostel. it was amazing and so close to everything!
