    This place was great! Isaac, the GM, is such a cool guy. He was super welcoming when my friend and I got there and even offered to drive us to the Brighton Beach Boxes one day because we were short on time and we’re gonna miss it. Definitely recommend this place, unreal atmosphere and the staff are great!

    I would recommend anybody under 40 to stay in this hostel. I ended up booking 3 nights extra because everything is just great. Very comfortable beds, clean rooms and commen spaces. Enough fridge store, pots snd pans etc. Every night they offer a different activity in the hostels' bar (open for public). This also means that you hear music every night until 01:00 hrs. Further, the staff is very helpful and can set you up with many things such as a telephone membership, tours, printing etc.

    100% party hostel. I mean, people even travel from other hostels to party here. If you’re into that, don’t bother going anywhere else. If you’re not into that, for god’s sake why are you still reading this

    Great location for St. Kilda, but you will need the tram to get to the CBD. Something on every night so the social scene was fantastic. Quite a few people live there who are working so there is a good mix of people staying there.

    Do not stay here. The property is dirty, outdated, and lacking the facilities a hostel of its price should offer. My room was full of people that spent the entire night vomiting all over the place. I also experienced comments that were borderline sexual harassment from a male guest. The only positive was the staff guy that changed my room. If you’re an 18yo looking to black out and get laid for the first time, you’ll love this place.
