Hostelworld says:

Located in St Kilda, Habitat HQ is less than 20 minutes' walk to the beach. There's also trams nearby going into central Melbourne. Hostelworld guests say that 'with plenty of different tours and activities on every day it gives you a great chance to meet people'. This hostel has a large kitchen with food storage, an elevator - ideal for travellers with heavy luggage - and 'kind, considerate and professional' staff, according to our users. We like that they offer free dinners on Thursdays.

    Really clean and comfy, everything works except the hand dryers, none of which seem to work so there is nowhere to dry your hands. The desk staff were great, everyone was really friendly and helpful. The one person that wasn't was the desk manager, she was usually pretty grumpy and often rude.
