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.


Great hostel. Loved it! Decent sized kitchen with everything you need and great common area. Definitely recommend it


actually really good best hostel I've stayed in in Melbourne. A proper backpackers not one that to force fun down your throats like a base hostel, just a nice place with good people and decent manager, oh and a really comfy sofa


Awesome hostel everyone is just one big family :)

The staff here are lovely and the hostel is very clean and fresh feeling! Great atmosphere and very sociable. We have stayed here several times on our trips to Melbouren and will continue to do so :)
