    Enjoyed Base St. Kilda, solid vibe for younger backpackers/longer term stays. Social events to bring people together. Outlets near bed. Ensuite bathroom (though not my preference).

    Nice building in perfect location. Staff were wonderful, always very outgoing and energetic. Shoutout to Emma for helping me with my travel plans! Rooms updated, but would have liked to have a reading light and plug beside the beds. Really great bar downstairs, however it is open to the public so it was difficult as a solo traveller to meet people there. Also it got very busy fast so it was hard for hostel residents to attend the bar activities. Kitchen was messy and needs more pans.

    The kitchen is very bad equipped, no sharp knifes. In the common /bar area it really smells like beer. Also talked to the reception about more space in the smelly fridge. I usually dont give bad reviews, but there is a lot of potential here so I hope you take it serious. Except for that, it's very close to the beach, bars and restaurants so I still liked my stay.

    Dirty and noisy hostel. The bar toilets are not even useable they that dirty. Kitchen has no utensils or kitchenware people have to bring their own. Zero soundproofing anywhere. Very expensive compared to local hostels.
