    The place is by far the best hostel I’ve been too on my 5 months travelling. From the moment you walk in your made welcome and it is more like a family than just stopping with other people. Big family dinner, social activity’s through the week. I was very sad to leave it/the people behind. The staff and service they give are A1. You will see if you go here it is a different experience to other places. Big shout out to Matt, Xaviar, Nico, Ahad, Patricia,Kelly and all the guests Thank you all

    One of the best hostels I've ever been to, immediately felt like home since the first Friday I got there when I was feeling sad and everybody welcomed me and made me feel part of the family, by the end of that same day I already had like 3 friends and met tons of people. It's clean, comfy, homie, the staff Ahad and Patricia are your friends, the manager Matt cares about you, specially during these times. Good social but also educational activities everyday to keep people engaged. Recommend 100%.

    This place is hard to define, but as soon as you walk in, you feel immediately at home. This is the perfect place to start your journey, it's like having a built in little community that you immediately feel part of. It's more like a share house than a hostel and I could not recommend this place enough.

    Absolutely LOVE this hostel!! The community this place offers is really one of a kind. If you’re staying in the Melbourne area for a long time/just moved to the city, I 10/10 recommend to stay here. Your 1 week will slowly turn into 2, 3...7, 8 months and it’ll be the absolute best time. The kitchen and bathrooms are so clean, the lounge is so comfy, and the people are absolutely delightful. Do yourself a favor and book Landing Pads!! Best decision I’ve made since coming to the land down under.

    Great hostel with a good atmosphere. Made some amazing friends the moment I got here, Xavier was very helpful when I first arrived. Jess and all the rest of the crew have helped massively in getting me settled into Australia. Rhys

    The homeliest place I've ever stayed! The sense of community in this hostel surpasses any I've ever stayed in, everyone is super friendly from the moment you walk in and the staff really care about you having the best experience you can. Special shoutout to Kelly and Ahad for being so friendly and welcoming. Super useful having jobseeker specific events to help you find your feet in Melbourne, helped me right out. Landing Pads will hold a special place in my heart for a long time.

    The staff are dedicated in a way that makes your stay lovely! Also one of the cleanest hostels I have stayed in. In terms of facilities, the outdoor space and kitchen are particularly nice.

    Pros: the staff, the guests. Cons: the facilities, the strict rules which are only applied to some people, the broken appliances which take months to be replaced, mold, bad water pressure, weird office hours. Spotted by previous/current guests but not mentioned at all in any of the reviews: a rat, a suspected BED BUG. You will pay premium price for a subpar service. The place is meant to house 40 people. The house ONLY has 4 toilets. Good luck in the mornings, if you have work.
