Barkley is a hostel that is more about the people than the facilities. Often, the facilities are cleaned to the barest of minimums. The kitchen is nice and spacious but come 6pm it will be packed and you'll be fighting for space. Evenings typically turn into some kind of party as you're allowed to drink both in the rooms and the main seating areas. It's typically a lot of long term people so it can be cliquey at first but if you're around for a few days it's easy to break in. Love my barkly fam!

I originally booked 2 nights here but a few weeks later I keep extending my stay. Love this hostel. Great atmosphere, really nice area to chill out in downstairs and meet other travellers and a big kitchen to cook in. Matt (the manager) is really great and will help you with anything. All in all, stay here! You won't regret it!

I had a fantastic stay at Barkly and highly recommend it to you. Free wifi, tea, coffee, lockers. Comfy new beds and great showers. It's got a real relaxed atmosphere and great staff, the manager Matt is a great guy with lots of local knowledge on things to see and do. St Kilda is a great location with the beach just down the road. I'll be back there again for sure.
