    The bar downstairs was fun! It can be noisy on weekends but they host events which sounded like fun. We weren't able to attend any due to other plans. I would consider staying here again. The location is great, St. Kilda is an amazing neighbourhood to spend time in.

    The best hostel in Melbourne by a mile, amazing facilities, great bar on the ground floor, brilliant staff and a super central location in St Kilda near tram stops and Ackland Street. Serious note though, sort that wing challenge out, no human should be consuming that hahaha.

    Right in the heart of st kilda. Great party atmosphere and all the staff will go out of their way to help. The only issue i have is that the kitchen seemed very understock with pots and pans for the amount of guests.

    Nice hostel, nice kitchen are and bar area, staff were super super helpful and nice, some of the nicest staff I’ve come across in Aus! Rooms were a bit trapped feeling but as hostels go there is nothing wrong with them! Didn’t generally like the atmosphere in the place but I think that was the people staying here.

    I GOT RINGWORM from this hostel. It was unclean and you could tell just from looking in the rooms but I tried to ignore it, two days of sleeping in those beds and I had a disease. I didnt have it before sleeping in this hostel. Other than the unclean rooms and bathrooms the staff and atmosphere were very nice but the unclean part is what makes this hostel a NO from me.

    A lot of people live here. Therefore the rooms can feel very ‘lived in’. A lot happens between the people that live here; not limited to simply sleeping with each other. Bed swapping takes place on a regular basis with one chap; “Alex” having many girls every night, all night. Lively. I did not score any girls, so take this with a pinch of salt.
