    Great hostel, comfortable room with bathroom is nice. The bar is really fun and a great place to make friends, although it is a party hostel I was able to get a good nights sleep each night. Staff an volunteers are really nice and friendly too. Would stay again 😊

    Great place to have fun and meet people. Definitely a party hostel, something fun going on in the bar area every night. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming, always up for going out. Staff were really good in helping organise other trips for us whilst in Australia. The kitchen and bedrooms were really clean and spacious with en-suite bathroom in every room. It was located next to great bars and clubs in st kilda however was quite far from the city (30 mins public transport).

    Really fun hostel, always had different events that made it really easy to meet people. Simon and Angela gave the absolute best advice and helped us plan our whole East Coast trip, couldn't recommend the two of them more!

    great location, very close to the tram station, beach and a woolworths! The events they held are very great and interactive with deals at the bar for people staying there. Staff was super helpful by going over a map with us, which trams to take and to where! really helped. Rooms were ok.. beds not comfortable and u only get a comforter that seems as if its never washed. The kitchen space is REALLY small. with very few burners and cooking tools.

    Good, clean hostel 😊 It is a party hostel, so it can get rowdy at night, particularly at the weekends, but the staff were friendly and everything was kept clean. No ovens in the kitchen but it was functional enough

    Room was cramped and had a funky smell. Definitely a party hostel with some of the guests getting pretty sloppy while I was there. Felt like everyone was from the UK. Staff was nice and helpful and the hostel is in a good location if you want to stay in St Kilda

    The staff were really nice and the events each night were pretty fun. Location is pretty good as well and I liked St. Kilda a lot. I thought the rooms were small, dirty and over priced and the kitchen was always messy. The fridges under the counter didn’t work and there wasn’t really much some to just hang outside the bar. It’s very loud all hours of the day. Also no recycling which I was really bummed on because I know we can do better!

    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.
