The Oslo is in the perfect location for exploring Melbourne. It's very dated with its decor and hasn't had much if any improvements done in a very long time. The toilet was leaking and some of the sockets kept blowing a fuse. However saying all this, we had a great time when we arrived we had been upgraded to the private residence at no extra cost. The staff where extremely friendly and helpful . I would stay here again. But it would be great to see some updates

It was unclean disgusting, my room was in a shed type buliding in the courtyard. To get to toilet you had to go outside in the dark no lights. You had to make your own bed ! Bed was at least 40 years old not safe!

Private rooms were alltogether prettyOk, but the bed sheets were dirty and the staff were not here ever when needed. Location is good, easy way to get to the city by tram and close shops, bars, restaurants

Place was filthy, was honestly like a prison inside and out. Very loud, didn't feel safe. French member of staff possibly the rudest person I have met in my life. I have NEVER left a bad review before and I understand places that are below average - you get what you pay for. But this? I wouldn't be paid to look at the place again. The French Man STARTED on my boyfriend and tried to cause a fight, disgusting man who needs to get some friends. (Which will probably be impossible for him tbf). Awful

If your comming to Melbourne to party in St Kilda, this is not the hostel for you. Also hostel looks very dirty.

This hostel has a fee for everything, especially the expensive wifi. The cleaning of the toilet can be discussed and also the old kitchen. I meet some friendly backpackers there but also a few sleeping on sofas in the common areas. Also strange open reception times.

Place is very outdated. We were in the most modern room apparently and it was the biggest dump I've ever stayed in.

One of the worst hostels i ever have been. Stuff very stressed, aggressiv if you ask for something. Don't go just because is cheap, you will find a better one in the same area.

All great, don't quite understand the bad reviews. Only gripe would be the wifi.
