Fodor's Review

This budget hostel is run by Youth Hostels Australia (YHA), an organization that likes to occupy heritage buildings or those with plenty of character. This hostel is no exception; it's located in the former Markillies Hotel, a five-story Edwardian-era structure built in 1915 and once a working man's hotel. Today it has a great rooftop terrace with barbecue. It is well situated near Southern Cross Station, the DFO discount shopping center, and Docklands. There are 43 multi-share or dorm rooms, with separate dorms for males and females, and eight double rooms with en-suite bathrooms. Other twin and double rooms share bathroom facilities with the dorms. While the name implies a younger crowd, the hostel is open to all ages, and guests with a YHA card get a 10 percent discount. It's recommended to book YHA accommodation well in advance. There are several kitchens, guest lounges with Internet terminals, and Wi-Fi throughout the building.
