Awesome hostel! Literally is like a family in that place! Other local hostels probably had better facilities and stuff but this place was crazy fun, and full of easy going people! Would recommend it to anyone and would definitely stay again!

I stayed in this hostel couple of weeks on and off. Always coming back. Amazing stuff always happy to help you. Hostel byitself really clean (kitchen is clean twice per day, rooms every day). Really nice atmosphere, a lot long terms (not surprise because in my opinion is the best hostel in St Kilda!

Not a bad hostel for australia but have stayed in better in south america, hate the fact that you have to pay for internet. Also very over populated with long term workers/travellers..Drinking goon every night of the week so therefore treat the hostel as a doss house.. No room in the Fridges in kitchen due to TOO MANY PEOPLE LIVING THERE

Shops, restaurants, the beach and trams are very close! If you search a hostel with a family vibe; this is it. Kitchen is big enough, most dorms have a tv where you can watch dvd's (rent them for free) just incase you wanna stay in your room on a rainy day. Free bbq on sunday witch is great! Because of the calkboard on the entrance you're always up to date for what's going on in Melbs. Huge compliment to the guys at the reception! Nicest staff you'll ever see. I loved my stay!

Considering the money you pay for a stay in the hostel, and the world we live in today. I felt it was unfair to pay 2 dollars for 250 mb on wifi, especially when they cant even keep the ceiling clean, it doesnt help that their owner lives in Queensland. Apart from that its a great hostel.

Not a bad hostel but not an awesome one either. Good: close to the beach, supermarket and trams. Could be improved: no lockers, no wifi, nowhere to wash or hang your clothes. Far from the city so you'll need to take the tram (extra cost). Will stay in the centre next time.

5 minute walk to the beach. Friendliest and most helpful staff ive met in oz. Big, clean, well equipped kitchen. Plenty of power outlets in rooms. Rooms cleaned every day. More of a chilled out hostel than a party hostel. Would reccomend to people looking to find a job rather than a holiday

We didn't know what to expect at a backpackers We were very happy with our very neat and tidy room. There was a well appointed super clean bathroom. Cuppa facilities, microwave, TV, power board, alarm clock and a lamp. We had everything we needed PS we are in our sixties. The staff were pleasant and efficient .

Mega friendly staff, communal areas felt a bit dirty but had a good atmosphere. Mainly due to our own fault of rebooking me and my party got split in to different rooms, the people in my room had literally been there for months and made me feel quite intrusive so had quite an uncomfortable stay. Don't expect the ritz but if you're a working backpacker and want a decent social life then it's for you.

Couldn't keep away from this place! Stayed here multiple times throughout my travels and kept bouncing back like a bad cheque. Staff were excellent and always keen for a laugh, and put on some great free BBQ's every Sunday (with the aid of my culinary skills of course!) Stayed in the biggest dorm, and whilst it gets a bit messy with 10 ppl from time to time, everyone staying there was really welcoming. I'm only leaving because I found a whole bunch of people from Home to travel with! GAME OVER!
