During our stay there, we opted for a double/twin room with ensuite. The room was clean and the ensuite were working fine. It also came with reverse cycle airconditioning, so it's good for heating or cooling. Nothing fancy, of course.
There's even a place where you can cook and/or have a barbecue, as well as a small cafe/restaurant to buy food if you're not too choosy about your meal. Other facilities include: an in-house tour desk, internet/email section, games room, reading room, TV and video areas.
Apart from the affordable rates, the best perk about this hostel is that it is within walking distance to Queen Victoria Market (good shopping and eating place) and the Melbourne Zoo. It is also quite conveniently located for public transportation.
