  • Extremely competitive location, well placed to access almost anywhere you might want to visit when in Melbourne. However, location is not everything and quality of lodging does matter. With respect to that, I felt it was lacking.

    1. Leaking ceiling: It rained for a couple of days when I visited Melbourne, and when the rain was heavy the ceiling started dripping water down the walls. Not too nice.

    2. Thin walls and club next door: Hard to settle down to sleep with the bass pumping right through the walls for the better part of the night.

    3. Misinformation: In the description it is stated that this is a house. That is not true. It is more like the second level of a carwash business and is operated like a typical backpacker's hostel. I have nothing against hostels, just felt the information provided was misleading.

    That said, everyone we met was really friendly and there was often food in the kitchen for everyone to enjoy. Toilets were clean enough for my purposes but again, they are more like backpacker hostel toilets and not those you would expect in a house.

    Overall, fantastic location but not so fantastic quality of lodging.

  • The room was perfect for my purposes. Paulo was very friendly and easy to deal with.

    Thanks for a great spot.

  • Paulo and Yanina were great hosts. The place was a little more crowded than we thought as it was closer to a small hostel than an apartment, However everyone who lived/stayed there was very nice. The only major issue was the disco club on the weekend which was very loud. Fortunately it was only a few days a week and I am a heavy sleeper. The location was great and it's minutes away from the beautiful seawall on the Yara River.

  • The place was pretty basic but perfect for what we needed. Clean and quiet, in a great location. We didn't get to talk to the other guests much but they all seemed polite. Def a good spot to explore the city from.

  • Perfect location, nice clean room, clean kitchen and bathroom.
    Our room was on top of a bar, so a bit noisy in the weekend. Otherwise all perfect.

  • Great location, close to transport and very central. Hosts very friendly, approachable and manage those staying- promptly evicted people while I was there which was greatly appreciated. Beds, linen, room, facilities very clean. Kitchen fare, toilet always clean, the 1 working shower is very basic. Rooms small depending which one you get and most have no windows and those that do don't open so it can get very stuffy and confinng. When it rains the roof and walls leaked onto my bed- not nice to come back to! I had to remain in the same leaky room for 3 weeks. Very noisy wooden floors, thin walls and a car wash below the accommodation so not much sleep. The worst aspects were the nightclub next door which is open until 5am as well as if you are unluckky enough to have room mates that try to sing and play an instrument. I felt secure however some tenants would leave the front door unlocked. Good accomodation if working very long hours or not there much.

  • Paolo & Yanina are very nice and accommodating couple. We felt at home from the first day we arrived till the end of our stay. Our room was perfect for us. The linens were spotlessly clean and smelled fresh! The location was perfect for the purpose of our trip. They are great hosts and we would surely recommend the place.

  • I booked the room for 3 people (all ladies) for about a fortnight and we had a very comfortable and memorable stay. The hosts were warm, hospitable and very helpful with everything. Three women meant a lot of bags and Paulo didn't let us lift a finger. We were pampered with a well-appointed room and super duper clean linen and they were so accommodating of our requests. Having good internet connection made the stay even more enjoyable and on our first day, both Paulo and Yanina had already had everything ready for us in terms of brochures and flyers about places to visit and the train and tram network; they even welcomed us with apple strudel (fresh from the oven!). The proximity to the city centre was the icing on the cake; so close to everything - shopping, cinema, transport, Crown, Aldi and Woolworths! Fantastic! More power to you guys : )
