I would add mirrors in the hall and more bathrooms, that's all, hostel is good)) thank you!!
The location is top notch and gets u in the thick of Melbourne city with so much to do in the area! It was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful! Only complaint would be no aircon, but I was there on the hottest days so I imagine anywhere would be sweaty and sticky with or without aircon.
