Surprisingly 5 Star”

After reading reviews prior to coming to The Village Melbourne, I wasn't expecting a great stay, but I was going to deal with it due to needing last minute accommodation. I was pleasantly surprised at how much of a Vibe this place was. The major highlights for me were: - 24 Hour Reception - Large Secure Lockers ($5 for 12 hours is rather good if I'm honest) - Bar downstairs with a free beer token provided on check-in - Clean facilities and quality hotel sheets in the rooms - Ensuites in each of the rooms to ensure you aren't sharing bathrooms with more than just the occupants of your room - Secure room locks - Upstairs lounge areas with heaps of seating and comfortable areas to watch tv. - Commercial kitchen available to cook your own food - FREE WIFI The staff were super friendly, informative, and accommodating and I definitely think this Hostel was up there with some of the best I have been to, and I would certainly return. Thanks Village Melbourne :)

Great Location Cheap Value For Money”

I was in a 18 room dorm which turned out to be all male so did not need to be modest around girls sharing the room. Usually only females are offered such privilege good to see someone giving the same things women get to men now more power for us mysogynistic men who hate narcistic women dominance with the wrong definition in English language of who feminist should be targeting. They are guilty of it and I have met so many narcistic people there too. Shame these selfish people ruin a gentleman's liberty.
