Really liked. There is a lot of teenagers there, but this is not a problem to me.

Too much of a party hostel. If you're not in the 16-20 year old bracket, suggest you stay away. Facilities are nothing to speak very highly off. Location of course is excellent - close to the st. Kilda beach and stone's throw from the city areas

Great party hostel in a great location. Met some lovely people and everyone wants to socalise. However, for the price of the accommodation the rooms are below standard, no reading lights and no individual plug sockets, there was hardly any space to sit up in the bottom bunk and I banged my head a lot. Also you have to pay for all of the extras which you get free in many of the cheaper hostels WiFi, luggage storage being two examples. That being said I would stay here again.

i've stayed there 5 nights in total: 2 in a female dorm which was lovely and smelled very good. the room have a lot of space and everything is clean. the terasse on the top in very nice... it closes at 22-23h but until then it's very fun to be there. my three other nights were in a mix room and that something else: depending on who you are in room with... boys are just smelly... at least that what happened in my room. but the staff did everything to make it go away! so they cared =)

Hi there! We appreciate the time you took to leave us a review! Our Sanctuary Rooms are amazing - especially with our free hour of sparkling wine! One of the added benefits is also not having the 'smelly' boys in your room ;-) We're glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope if you're in Melbourne you come and stay with us again. Best wishes & safe travels, BASE MANAGEMENT

If you like to stay at a partyhostel for youths, this is the place to be, if not, stay somewhere else. However, it is a clean place.
