    I liked the comfy beds, could be described as pod beds, they have a curtain for privacy and shelf with various amenities such as lights and charging facilities. The staff were helpful with helping me plan my onward travel to Cairns and helped me book tours and onward accommodation. Very big hostel so easy to meet other travellers and to socialise.

    Loved this hostel! The staff were always really friendly and helpful, and the place was always being cleaned, and the beds were really comfy with a privacy curtain and USB ports right above you. Would recommend to anyone wanting somewhere to stay that’s super close to the beach but it’s really easy to get to the cbd to explore Melbourne.

    The beds are amazing - really comfy and private with the curtain. Rooms are good sizes and good storage that you can lock with your own padlock. Social side isn’t amazing unless you smoke and there is a lot of long stay workers here. I would say a more chilled hostel, not a lot going on and bar is very small.

    Affordable accommodation. Conveniently located near two tram station which transports you straight into the CBD. Beds are below average, pillows feel like bricks. For fitness enthusiasts, I'm happy to inform you the closest gym is just a 4-minute walk away. Kitchens are large and there is plenty of room to walk around. All in all, I recommend this hostel if you're on a real budget.

    Definitely not a pass-through hostel. People stay here for a while so the public room space is super messy. Other facilities aka tv room are great People are kind and cool Was a nice place to get my bearings in Melbourne, then leave.

    It was a nice hostel located in St. Kilda. Unfortunately my dorm mates would come in at 1 or 2 in the morning, speaking loudly and eating kebabs

    I honestly have never stay or been treated so bad by staff. Got woken up to a rat in my room at 3 in the morning. Got moved rooms after this experience didn’t want to stay at the hostel which they couldn’t offer me a refund. Then not even a sorry for the manger for this dramatic experience. You paid for a service but get treated like your **** on there shoe! I got told that the mangers not around to apology. Wouldn’t stay here if you paid me worst experience of being in Melbourne.
