I found Melbourne to be an expensive place when it came to accommodation. The cheapest I could find was this hotel, Ibis Budget Melbourne CBD. Even though it is perfectly, centrally located on Elizabeth Street it is kinda hard to find, as the entrance with it’s single sign is pretty difficult to spot. A few floors up, and you’ll arrive at the reception. And everything about this place screams hostel, from reception to breakfast room, to hallways and room. It’s very basic, but good. Since I visited down under in their winter the evenings were a cold affair, but equipped with a well-working heater it was only the restroom that was freezing 🙂
