Once you arrived, everyone will invite you to stay with them and everyone is trying their best to have a good relation to each other Rooms are alright, big shared bathroom Perfect location for a stay in St. kilda!




Small kitchen that does not promote encounters. No quiet common room. There is a bar on the ground floor but it is not very quiet. The TV room closes at 2am Good rooms people do not do their dishes.


We had a great time at St. Kilda beach hostel. The location is near the beach, the employees were nice and helpful and our room was cleaned. I would definitely recommend the hostel.

good location but the people who stay here are a bit dodgy and there is a lot of drugs and people being anti social. not the owners fault but still a problem. pretty handy to have a bar downstairs though.


Great hostel to stay at. Easy to met people and hostel is clean. Staff are great only downside is the wifi isn't that great in all areas of the hostel. The room tends to be ok but doesn't work in the kitchen or the bar


1. Overheard several customers complaining at desk about bed bug bites which we seen for ourselves 2. Only 2/3 out of 12 sockets worked in a 6 form room one being in the bathroom !! 3. The window didn't shut right which meant anytime a door was closed above or around us it shock violently 4. Curtain didn't cover the window it wa broken 5. (You will notice how much this annoys you) there are about 5 forks, knives and spoons for the hostel quest Aldi down the road sell plastic cutlery 4 $2
