Child hostel plan gets more support than most hotels in Melbourne’s CBD
An emergency plan to rent a room at a local guesthouse has found strong support among hotel owners in Melbourne’s CBD, despite the negative reviews.
The Royal Melbourne Hospital emergency room plan for 2015 was published this week and the hotel industry is responding to a surge in demand for accommodation in the city, where the number of hotels is growing rapidly.

“We really do need to focus on emergency departments across the city to provide the best quality of care to those that need it,” hospital spokeswoman Anne Leech said.
