    like a rose blossoming for the first time. Theres nothing more beautiful than the staff at Base St Kilda. when you walk in, you’re greeted with pure energy and passion. Staff that are so attractive and empathetic that they deserve to be the muse of famous painters. Emma sorted me out with the adventure of a life time, i could not thank her enough. isaac, or better known as ballsack - what a ball of energy and fun. If i wasn’t already involved with someone id love to jump his bones. if only

Great party hostel with a fab atmosphere and the staff make you feel truly welcome and seem to really enjoy their jobs, special shoutout to Simon who helped me out massively when I thought I’d lost my phone, nicest guy going! 10/10 would stay again but watch out for boozy bingo on Mondays cus it’s lethal

    Best hostel I’ve stayed at in Australia. Amazing staff go beyond what is expected to welcome you to Melbourne... I was more than satisfied with the customer service I received. Especially the manager who went out of his way to give me late check out when something came up. Lisa, Simon, Isaac and Jack are legends! Definitely stay here if you want to have a good time and meet cool people whilst you’re at it. Bar is cool and kitchen is clean. Very good, very nice, I like it.

    It was honestly really hard making friends as it seemed everyone was already grouped off. The activities are great but it'd be nice if they like mixed it up and threw random people into groups or help get loners like myself a place to be during the activities.

    Hostel is in good location with trams nearby and SkyBus stop directly outside. Unfortunately the hostel is super noisy (for me) lots of door slamming, late night parties and it is not the cleanest in communal areas - kinda grotty and just needs refreshed / proper deep clean. Reception and travel staff were very helpful, positive and upbeat which is a huge positive. Good washing / drying facilities and cooking areas.
