    Really nice small hostel. Mainly long stay backpacker perfect if you have a job and you want something quiet at night but still socializing in the evening/weekend. Really good atmosphere very friendly staff. There are different events every day. Clean and right next to the train station. Kitchen and living room a bit small but no big deal.

    I have loved my stay at landing pads Richmond. I have lived here for over 7 months now and its such a great place to live and work and meet amazing people from all over the world. The location is great, right next to the train station and only a 25 minute walk to the CBD of the city. Its a great hostel to live and work and is close to amazing parks and restaurants. The atmosphere and vibe of the hostel is homey and it is always very clean. I would defiantly recommend LP Richmond!

    Definitely would recommend this hostel. The people and the staff (especially imke) make the hostel as great as it is! Only thing is that the bathrooms could use a little updating but other than that it’s a great place to stay especially if you’re on a WHV!

    Not a lot wrong with this place. Staff were super friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. Met lots of great people here, lots of activities organised, beds were surprisingly comfy for a hostel (you get TWO pillows!) My only complaint is that the kitchen is very small for the 40 or so people that are here (can't be helped I guess) and that it shuts between 9 and 10am for cleaning which is a bit inconvenient for me personally but that's a nitpick. One of the best hostels I've stayed in for sure!

    Great place to stay as a solo traveller looking for work. Thanks to Lorena for checking me in and being really friendly and welcoming. This hostel feels more like a share house and is really well located for transport around the city. Kitchen could be bigger and the WiFi can be slow. Lexi is a great house captain and you can always rely on her to put on an event in the evening!

    Overall I think it's a really nice place and for the right person could provide an excellent starting point in Australia/Melbourne. The people seemed nice and friendly but the vibe seemed a bit off and many people were coming and going. It's clean, the beds are comfortable, the seating areas are great for chatting with people, and the way they welcome you is quite nice. I think I just came at the wrong time but it's definitely better than most hostels!

    Very Good

    Great location, and a small but good kitchen with 2 ovens. Friendly staff who keep the place pretty spotless but relatively expensive for Melbourne right now. Very few guests staying there and those that were there were older unemployed Australians which made for an . . . interesting atmosphere.
