    Only stay here if you need to. A long stay would be depressing. Close to all amenities but otherwise a typical, shabby, next-to-train station place. Also deposit takes 3 weeks to come back, most places in Melbourne release on departure date. A bit odd.

    The hotel was overpriced and I'd rate as prob a 2/3 star. It's in desperate need of an overhaul as i think it was last updated in the early 80's... the beds we're uncomfortable and the room was hot as the air conditioning unit was broken and I couldn't sleep with the window open due to the smell outside.

    Probably a nice place to stay, but not this time!
    Travelling solo, all I needed was a small double for a couple of nights as booked, but I was given a large family room complete with a rather stark wetrooom designed for a wheel chair user - additionally the room was noisy due to a ventilation shaft right outside the window. Not the best hotel experience. I got the impression that it was just an easy choice for the hotel to put me there in the absence of an alternative more appropriate booking for that room

    Convenient Budget hotel in a great location.
    Convenient location, just across from Southern Cross station where the skybus comes in from the airport. Good Value central hotel.

    Poor that wifi is not provided and must be paid for as an extra.Budget room clean and basic but not in the main part of the hotel, the window looks out on to an enclosed area, reminiscent of a cell block. Reasonable value and great for accessing Southern Cross.
