Close to the beach and everything you need is around. Big kitchen with decent equipment (fridge, micro, oven, pans and pots). There was no lockers in room I was staying. People never closed door to the room (they lock automatically otherwise). Bathrooms were super dirty for first few days, later they managed to clean them up. Mostly long term people that "own" the place. Stuff working there are long term people, mostly complaining that they were to work only in reception.

The big problem in this hostel is that there are mostly only long stayers in there... so they are like a big family and they don't really care about people who only stay there for a few days. But the security was really good, lockers in the room and the kitchen even has an oven. So if you want to relax a little bit in st Kilda and want to get some stuff done (2 computers available and free wifi all day and night) this is definitly the right hostel

Lockers in some but not all rooms. There were none in my room. I handed over my laptop and DSLR to reception, but there they just lay around in plain sight (Granted, nothing got stolen (except some food)). Almost all guests are long-timers. Some were really nice, but in general they were aiming to spend as few money as possible, so was not ideal for travellers who are looking for travelmates.

After staying at a handful of other Melbourne hostels, I was so relieved to find this place I booked an extra week within half an hour of checking in. Staff are awesome, it's always clean, and location is good too. Only complaint would be the matress, I got the bad one for my room and it's like a rock. Other than that one thing, this place is awesome.

Do not stay here if you want to socialise and meet people- the long terms tenants are very cliquey and act like they own the place. Not a very friendly hostel- everyone just sits and stares at their phones all day. The dorms are a mess and the beds are broken and make so much noise if you move slightly. Location however is great

The staff was nice and the location was great, near the beach and public transportation to the CBD. The facilities were quite dirty and in poor shape, I wouldn't stay here again.
