This is the ideal place to stay if what is required is a comfortable bed, a place to wash and close proximity to the city and public transport. The shared bathrooms are kept very clean and there are plenty of them, and the staff are unfailingly courteous and friendly.

Cheap and no alcohol allowed

Not a bad place, basically a backpackers. No alcohol allowed, not always a bad thing but it near craft beer bottle shops so a bit of a pain if you want to have a beer with dinner in the share kitchen. Or unwind and meet people.

Hotel room on a budget

For only $90 on a Saturday night the room I stayed in was not bad. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. There were only 2 shared toilets/showers on my floor which I imagine could have been a problem if the hotel was full but wasn't an issue this time. The included breakfast was basic but there were a variety of choices of cereals, spreads and drinks. Located right near South Yarra train station. I would recommend for a weekend stay on a budget.

Attended conference in Richmond

The room was musty smelling and very warm but otherwise ok. My room was close to showers and toilets which was good. Shower/Toilet good amenities. Loud neighbours up late hours was a shame as it was very echoey. I wouldn't fault the breakfast except they need to offer more than just thick white bread for toast. Get with the nutritional times. For the money it wasn't bad.

3.5/5 place, but definitely will visit again

I staied on the first floor, but it was hard to locate my laugages in the room. This is because there is no elevator. However, amenities are very nice and clean. I have been there for 4 nights and 5 days and I saw cleaners cleaning at least over 10times. Nice place to stay with only little money!!! Good good

Definitely a good and comfy place to stay with very clean shared bathrooms

Second time staying there, there will be a third. Just a few things to watch out. - try to get a room on top floor. Otherwise you hear noises from rooms above you through the ceiling. Had bad experiences in my last trip, staying 1st floor and a bunch of school kids making noise on 2nd floor all the time, very disturbing. This time however Internet was available in the room compared to last time when I stayed on top floor. Possible due to the distance from router.

Clean but VERY basic ...

Because I was staying in Melbourne for a single night with an appointment in St Kilda, I chose the Claremont at the same price as had been quoted for a hotel in the CBD). The room - while very clean - re-defined the term "basic". There was a TV, a desk/table (with a single wooden chair) and a rack on which one could hang one's clothes, but all was very spartan. The double bed, while comfortable, was part of a "bunk" combo, meaning that one had the underside of a single mattress hovering 3ft or so above one's head. Shared bathrooms (shower/toilet) were clean and always available. OK if you are doing nothing more than sleeping in the room at night, but otherwise: forget it.

Tiny room, decent bfast

Australia is expensive for most visitors around the world. So normally I would say they are charging a lot for this place but relative to the competition it is actually a decent price. The bedroom was super tiny, bunk beds and not much room to move around. The breakfast is decent, nothing too special but the basics are covered (coffee, cereal, juice, bread, milk). They offer free wi-fi which is definitely a plus to travelers. The place feels like a cross between a hotel and hostel. The location is not great. It's a bit far from the city center and transportation is costly, like everything else in Australia. But if you don't mind walking, it would talk about 30 or 45 minutes to walk into the city center from the hotel, depending on your pace. There are some restaurants and shopping (and bars/clubs at night) that are very close to the hotel, which is a plus if you just want to spend a day/night exploring that area of town.
