    Property condition


    Location is good and the room was clean but that’s about it. We had a bad experience checking in - the girl told us nothing, including not bothering to tell us that you have to pay a deposit for any cutlery and bowls, cups etc. so when we go to cook dinner later (and reception is closed), we find there’s nothing to eat it on or with. Wasn’t given the code to get in the front door so had to wait in the rain for someone to open it. not the service we’ve had in other hostels.

    Bien mais plutôt pour les personnes qui aiment la

    Bon rapport qualité-prix. Mais le week-end c'est bruyant, tout dépend de ce que vous recherchez, repos ou fête.

    Great value in a great area

    Back of Chapel doesn’t look so good on first sight as it’s an old property with all the faults you would expect in an o,d building. It is a proper backpackers hostel so if you want 5* luxury don’t stay here. We did have a bit of a problem with some extremely inconsiderate residents coming back from a club at 6.00 in the morning but this only happened once. You get drawn into this place and it is excellent value for money in expensive Melbourne. The manager Aaron is fantastic - nothing is too much trouble and he is very knowledgeable about the area. We had a triple room with a balcony where we could listen to the music in busy Chapel Street. Check out the amazing graffiti too!
