Hi Guys,
Myself and my partner have been travelling for over two years and I ran a backpackers in WA last year. We booked into to stay at Melbourne Connection Backpackers back in April 2012, we booked in for four nights. When we arrived we were shown to our room, is was disgusting, the room was a mess and the mattresses were bowed in. We asked to check out but Dallas the Australian receptionist said we would lose a nights accommodation and so we asked if we could be moved to another room, we moved downstairs to a room next to the exit door which doesn’t have a slow stop on it and kept banging all night long.
When we went to make a cup of tea in the kitchen and there was only one cup available which people were pretty much sharing around, they have no utensils in the kitchen.
The following day when we luckily escaped Dallas the receptionist said he would refund the other three nights onto my card. Three months later, numerous emails, phone conversations and return visits we are still awaiting our refund. If he is not going to give us a refund, Just say, stop saying "I’ll do it at the end of the day", "sorry the eftpos machine is broken".
This hostel is cheap but to be honest for the cost of nothing you would be better off sleeping in door way down the road. You pay for what you get and my advice is to pay the $1-2 more and stay somewhere clean and friendly, of which I can name a few in Melbourne if anyone needs advice.
Best of luck

"Amazing journey in Melbourne"

+: just near the shuttle bus station, right in the centre of the city - almost everything is easily reachable. On the whole, an ordinary backpackers hostel. For special kind of public:-)
-: the nightclub right across the road makes the night very noisy;
