Receptionists were extremly unpolite. They did not make you feel comfortable. If you wanted to know something they did not make an afford. I won't go there never again.
Such great atmosphere at this place, made many friends in my short stay. So close to the beach, which is perfect during summer. There's always something happening in St. Kilda. Come italiano in australia posso dire che sono stato davvero bene. Home Travellers Motel e' l' ostello ideale per backpacker, familiare e divertente. :D

Unfortunately, I have to say that this is the poorest hostel I've yet to stay in. There seemed to be a "regular" crowd that was very exclusive. They tended to loiter around the front of the hostel, creating a bad first impression. The hostel is located in what seems to be a spotty neighbourhood, and it wasn't incredibly clean. My roommates also seemed to be long-termers. On a more positive note, I was greeted by an incredibly friendly receptionist!
I had a very nice stay here. The hostel is Not to big the rooms are nice and clean and You have enough space for your luggage. The hostel has also laundry kitchen and TV room. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is in St Kilda and there Are a Lot of pubs bars and restsurants around ;)) To the beach is it ten minutes; ) i liked it there and the St Kilda area also; )) thank You guys nice greetings from franzi from germany
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.
