    Very homely and tucked away! Felt like I had a comfortable and communal base of operation to return home to. The room was very comfy and spacious with my own power points and large bathrooms with lots of storage space all round. Staff is super friendly and hospitable and good vibes from the other guests too. Will definitely be coming back.

    Barkly backpackers is a great place to meet people and has a really friendly atmosphere. The location is great, it’s not too far from the beach or the trams to get to the CBD or to go shopping in Acland Street. The staff was always really helpful and welcoming.

    Good hostel if you need a decent night sleep. I wouldn't say there's much of an atmosphere here, when i stayed here it was very quiet and everyone kept to themselves. Not the best for a lone traveller wanting to meet people. The man who runs the hostel is lovely and very helpful. Free breakfast is simple but much appreciated!

    Overall a great place to stay! St Kilda isn't as busy and popular as it used to be, but it is super close to easily accessible public transport into the city. Dave on the front desk is super friendly and always available to help out!

    Stayed in this hostel twice before and after picking up my rental car nearby. St Kilda doesn't seem to have too much selection when it comes to non-party hostels, and this one seemed the best of an average bunch. The place is pretty worn and there seems to be a lot of long-termers there who have well and truely moved in. Everyone was pleasant and friendly though and for 1 night it was fine.

    Cheaper to book online than direct with hostel! The manger said it wasn't true so I showed him my booking and the price and it was cheaper than booking with him in person. So I booked another night online and the manager was very rude to me and spoke down to me, not very professional at all, if you want customers to book with you direct maybe lose the additude and offer some kind of reward for them doing so! I'm a backpacker with no job so clearly I'm going to take the cheapest option!
