Ricky's place was in the perfect location for my short stay in Melbourne, it is walking distance to most city landmarks and the free tram service is directly out the front. Ricky is a very welcoming host and was more than happy to help me out (even when I locked myself out of the apartment!). I definitely recommend this stay.

Ricky's airbnb is an extremely comfortable, good for value, and convenient place. He replies promptly and is very enthusiastic in providing help and suggestions for travelling in Melbourne. Would totally come back and stay here again (:

Great location. It is very strategic, next to Melbourne Central and close to public transports, i.e. Trams and Trains.

Great location and affordable. However quite noisy and rather cold in the room so extra layers may be necessary for sleeping! Also there was no blind at the time and not a lot of space so not ideal for two people with a lot of luggage.

Dear Elyse, Thank you for your review. In regards to the noise in the city, due to our apartment's very central location, we understand it can be noisy during weekends and public holidays (unfortunately you stayed at our place during Easter break) and that is why we provide earplugs for our guests upon request. Did you read my message about this? (Note to other people who read this review: She asked me for wifi details even though I had earlier given the details the day before her asking, indicating she did not read my message prior to her check-in). We also provide a big heater, why did you not ask us about this (the heater is just sitting idle three metres from your room, waiting for you to use it)? Note to other people who read this review: Another guest had complained for same thing (heater) in the review too but she did not ask us as well, we do have heater, please ask us if you need one. Of course we do not want you to sleep in the cold, and we can provide additional layers should you need one, but you never asked us about heater or doona during your stay (even though I asked you to let me know if you need anything to make your stay more enjoyable)? Unfortunately previous guest before you broke our blind, and it takes three weeks for the blind to be replaced (it has been replaced now, so the room has blind again), I am now in the process of claiming the money from AirBnB for the damage caused by this guest. As you came over during Easter, we were unable to get the blind fixed as fast as we wanted it to be, all of the blind companies are on holiday during Easter, please accept our apologies for this inconvenience, this is beyond our control that the previous guest before you broke our blind. In regards to the space for your luggage, we have provided dedicated space in the built-in wardrobe, did you notice this empty spot? Our apartment is one of the biggest apartments in our building, and space is expensive in the city (but we are providing affordable place as you mentioned). You can also utilise empty space under the bed, did you ask us about the spot in the built-in wardrobe? As some people do not read my response to previous reviews, I have to repeat this again and again: I always message all of our guests prior to their stay not to hesitate to contact us if they need anything. And I request all of our guests to ASK and COMMUNICATE if you need anything, we are here to make your stay more enjoyable, so please please please ASK and COMMUNICATE.

Brilliant location. All you need with in walking distance. Early check was great. Small bedroom but perfect for a short stay in the city.

Ricky place is a good location to stay if you search for Melbourne center. The apertment is just beside the Melbourne Central station which you can take train to Belgrave for Puffing Billy (as what I did). The free tram is just in front of his apartment which you can reach Flinder st Station / Federation Square after a few stop... Very convenient. I hightly recommend his place.

Very prompt reply and suggestions from the host. However, room is rather small, not suitable for people with big luggages to stay as there will not be space to move about. Good for solo traveller. Good location, convenient to travel around. However, be prepared that it will be noisy and bright at night.

Dear Fiona, Thank you for your review. Unfortunately space is expensive in the city, and our apartment is one of the biggest in the whole building. There is plenty of space to store your luggages in the room however. Did you notice the empty spot in the built-in wardrobe? That is the dedicated spot for you to store your luggages, additionally you can store them under the bed as well. As for the blinds, why did you not ask me for instructions? Otherwise, if you (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) the instructions, there are plenty of them on Youtube. Note to other people who read this review: I ALWAYS ask all of our guests not to hesitate to ask me about anything at the beginning of our guests' stay. Unfortunately she did not ask us about the luggages storage and instructions to pull down the blind. We also have provided earplugs for our guests upon request, I am unsure if she read my message about this prior to her stay as well. If you also read my other reviews, I requested our guests to ASK and COMMUNICATE everything they need, and we are more than happy to cater everything that will make your stay more enjoyable. Additionally, from price point of view, we believe ours is one of the lowest in Melbourne CBD.
