"I would like to pass our thanks onto all of you at Urban Central. We had a great time on our Urban Camp and this was made so much easier by your friendly and helpful staff. The accommodation and facilities were fantastic (and I’ve stayed in a few backpackers in my time!) There was not one negative at all. It was a great experience for our kids to mix with so many people from all over the world. So thank you very much."

The central location was definitely a plus - trams almost outside the door. Having ensuite’s with the rooms was great – I'll be giving details to everyone at the network meetings that I attend. All round great experience - thanks

As a sporting club of 20 juniors- 12 to 17 years of age-with five adults, we were apprehensive at first at staying at a backpackers accommodation, but there was definitely no need to worry. All staff were totally accommodating of our group’s needs, always helpful, considerate and friendly. All other people staying were polite, accepting and very friendly, with many joining in conversations with our juniors. We all felt very safe and secure, did not have any issues at all regarding our stay over 6 days. We cooked in the kitchen every night to feed our group of 25, with ample room, and it was like musical chairs re the hotplates, pots and pans, etc, which made it a very fun experience for all involved in the nightly ritual. Proximity to Docklands (competition venue), trams, shopping was great, with also a very easy and scenic walking path along the river nearby.

Thank you for an awesome experience, and this is one place I would definitely stay again when in Melbourne. Cheap, clean, friendly and safe.
