  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

This is the worst hotel I’ve stayed at in Melbourne. The common areas stank like weed and cigarettes, you can hear the people next to and above you, the bathroom had dirty fingers prints all over the door, the pillows were cheap and uncomfortable and there wasn’t enough bedding to protect against the cold. The train shakes the building, which is no fault of the hotel, but you really do get what you pay for in this place. Would not stay ever again
