This is one of the best hostel Ive stayed at in my 10 months of travelling! The location is fab! 5 mins or less to walk to the beach and acland street- where all the shops/bars/Coles are & easy access to trams and busses which take you straight into the CBD in 20/25 mins The staff are brilliant and really helpful and friendly! Beds are changed every week and rooms are cleaned every day Kitchen is a decent size and well equipped The kitchen and lounge area is very social

The hostel is in St Kilda area, close to the sea; so a good chance for those who like have a dip in water and sunbathing;; it is close to transport and on a t ram y ou can go to the city centre in half an hour. But the hostel is full of energetic young guys and girls who release their energy by shouting with foul language; young people have the privilege of making mistakes but sometimes they go too far. the kitchen is right next to the reception and common room so the whole place is hot.
