Base St. Kilda is perfect for those starting their travels in Aus, and those who like to party! A great atmosphere, there is always something going on, both during the day and at night time. The in-house bar is lively and relatively cheap, but loud nights don't hamper your sleep. Each room is clean and comfortable, with its own ensuite. The location is great for St. Kilda, but a tram journey into the CBD will take between 20 and 30 minutes. A great place to make friends!
Kitchen is very tiny and messy Great social atmosphere to meet travellers!! Quite expensive for what you get though Review completed by my room and I
Really sociable hostel, loads to do, good location and helpful staff. Could have free wifi but if buying its worth getting the premium
I chose it for the location - at 62 atmosphere at night not my scene . Apart from that friendly and good amenities. Would recommend it to any young person.

Great place to party ! Lots of great people to meet !!
Absolutely loved this hostel. Was in a great location, staff were excellent and the general vibe around the place was awesome. I have been to hostels all over Australia and without a doubt this is my favourite. Will definitely be back!
Best location in Melbourne. Right next to the beach and Acland Street! The hostel has awesome nightlife. Bingo on Monday nights especially! Staff are helpful and friendly. Having stayed at the majority of the hostels in St Kilda I would definitely recommend this as the best one!

The manager of the hostel lost my mail even though having it in her hand the day before when I rang her on the phone. The hostel was dirty and they pushed alcohol on people to make money at the bar. Also male staff entered the female only dorms without notice. I like to party but this place was just full on the worst type of travellers
great party hostel!!
booked a week but stayed a few nights more, great atmosphere, roommates was great. wifi was kind of expensive in the rooms and the free WiFi? in the lobby didn't even work for me. good experience for first time hostel stayer!! :) boozy bingo on Monday at the downstairs bar was AWESOME :D
As soon as I have seen other hostels i have to say this one is amazing
Great staff, enjoyed the stay. Paid for extended check out times though and got woken up multiple times asking why we hadn't checked out yet. But otherwise a great stay.
Overall, had a great experience but the rooms were pretty dirty. They only did slight vacuuming during the day and the bathrooms had mold growing. Definitely could use a deep cleaning in the rooms and bathrooms. All the bathrooms/showers are in-suite. Staff were friendly overall, and pretty accommodating. I would stay here again when I'm in the Melbourne area!
