Dinky Di Houseboats

Dinky Di Houseboats
we paid $1600 for a week, for 10 people.

Fabulous houseboat holiday. They have houseboats that accomodate 2 - 12 people. We went on a 10-berth houseboat, and it was the most fabulous week holiday, for such a cheap price! We got our own privacy at night, we could be as noisy as we wished, and they even provided a courtesy bus to certain places in the area. I recommend mooring for a night in Echuca itself, so that you can make a trip into the pubs in town, we had the locals on top of us in a flash, shouting drinks left right and centre. The beauty of a country town!

Carlton College: Good Hostel in Melbourne

Carlton College is a hostel/student residence. I lived on the student's side here during my time in Melbourne, and stayed a few nights in the hostel when my contract was up. It is set in a 3-story Victorian home. The atmosphere is much quieter than a typical hostel. It is located in Carlton, about a 10 minute walk from the city centre, or a few minutes walk from the tram stops on Swanston Street or Latrobe Street.

The rooms are very comfortable, bathrooms are clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful. There is a locked door separating the hostel side from the student side.

If you are going to be living in Melbourne as a student, this is a great place to stay. You meet plenty of people and there are activities planned all the time. The food is edible, but you are one block off Lygon Street so there are plenty of restaurants nearby and a convenience store around the corner.

For the hostel, you can get a night in a dorm for as low as AU$15 or a single or double room for about $40-50. Bathrooms are shared. Parking is available. Internet access, TV lounge, laundry facilities, and kitchen.

If staying here as a student or for a fixed term, you must fill out an application.

Citadines on Bourke Melbourne: Modern, Chic Comfort in the City

We booked a 2-bedroom hotel in this apart'otel and it was just perfect with all the little amenities one's used to have in an apartment -- really a home away from home.

The layout's very thoughtful with a full-equipped kitchen that came with even a dishwashing machine! We didn't cook at all but was grateful for the use of the electric kettle, the fridge and the well-stocked crockery and cutlery.

There was a lovely sitting area with full-length glass windows that offered a view of the city area. There was a TV and a radio and the master-bedroom had another TV in it too.

The master-bedroom's ensuite with a long bath and a fluffly and comfortable king-sized bed. The other room came with 2 single beds and the common bathroom had a standing shower area.

All of which was impeccable -- exceptionally clean and looked brand new! :)

I was very comfortable staying here and felt really 'at home' -- loved the simple and clean decor with the very modern look and feel.

Check out the photos :)

Great convenience as located in the city centre and lots of food and shopping nearby.

There was a laundry room with 2 washing machines and dryers -- need to get the special coins from the Reception below and need to provide your own washing detergent.

The Quest Hotel on Bourke...

The Quest Hotel on Bourke Street, simply known as Quest on Bourke!!
We paid $255 for our room, we did not pay any extra for the upgrade.

We decided to treat ourselves (again) and stay in the city overnight after seeing Bon Jovi in concert. Me, my sister and my other half decided upon a two bedroom apartment. When we arrived to check-in, we discovered that we had been upgraded to a Deluxe apartment!! WOW!! We had two bedrooms, one with queen bed and one with king, two bathrooms, one with a HUGE spa, kitchen, laundry and fantastic views over Bourke St and the city!! The decor is first class, very hip and modern. I would definately recommend this place!

Clarence Gardens Youth Hostel: The Clarence Garden Youth Hostel

The Clarence Garden Youth Hostel in North Melbourne is a good, clean place to stay. Excellent breakfasts and lots and lots of information on the local area.

Here is a photo of the room I stayed in, is has heaters - necessary for Melbourne - and good shared bathroom facilities. Everything you need really, without paying a fortune, and you get to meet a lot more people this way!

Chisholm College LaTrobe University: University Hostel

I stayed at Chisholm College over Christmas and New Year 2003-2004. I paid at a weekly rate which was came out to about $16 US per day. It included a private room with shared bathroom,, free laundry, nearby free internet at the library, each floor had a kitchen with cable television, and there was also a student union with pool tables, and cable televisions. You could also use the university gym and swimming pool for a daily fee. Chisholm College is not centrally located in Melbourne, but a long tram ride north of the city. There are some nice walking trails on campus and grocery stores and restaurants are nearby.

They had a Christmas barbecue for foreign students and travelers, and on New Years Eve they had a Lord of the Rings marathon in the student union theater.

Oslo Backpack: Filthy Accommodation in Melbourne

Oslo BP has a good location and this is the only reason I decided to stay there although I had read some bad reviews about this place. Well, so now an on I'll believe in these reviews the place is really dirty, the bathroom is usually messy and the kitchen well, it's the filthiest kitchen I've ever seen. The rest of the place is falling apart and lacks maintenance, dust and rubish everywhere. At least my bedroom (that wasn't prepared when I arrived) was ok with a clean fridge but a really dirty wardrobe that obviously I didn't use.

The positive side as I wrote is the location close to Albert Park (so if you're lookinf for a place close to the F1 track this is an option, but there are other BPs arround) and to the bars and pubs. The staff was friendly and helped when I needed.

Duxton Hotel Melbourne: Affordable luxury in downtown Melbourne

In the heart of the business district, the superbly appointed Duxton Hotel Melbourne fronts onto Flinders Street Railway Station. Directly across the Yarra River are the shopping and entertainment precincts of Southbank, the Crown Casino and the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre.

The Duxton Hotel is a boutique hotel right in the heart of Melbourne. It is an old Victorian-style building facing Flinders Railway Station. The rooms are of adequate size and I like the breakfast buffet at the basement of the hotel.

Formula 1 at Falconer: Clean, location and cheap...

My wife and I always stay here when we visit Melbourne. As we have alot to do in Melbourne, we spend no time at the motel and use it for showering and sleeping mostly. Consequently we require a handy location, clean rooms and economical cost.
This place fits all those things. The hotel is situated near major freeways for easy access,especially from the airport. There are good shops nearby (24hr k-mart, eats etc) and the motel costs us about $50/night. Added to this is that they also offer a continental breakfast in the morning for $5 which is a great start to the day. The breakfast is as much as you want as long as you prepare it yourself (no problem). The money you save you can spend at the Victoria Street markets, which are great.

The Friendly Backpackers: Especially for students and backpackers

I stayed there for a few weeks and obviously it was not the best hotel i have ever stayed:)But i think its not a bad choice for backpackers or budget travellers.They were renovating the entrance when i left the hotel and it was a bit better when i visited later.

I think i will have to consider myself lucky for meeting some good friends that i still keep in touch.
