    I was only meant to stay for 1 night and ended up staying for 3, this is such a great hostel! So easy to meet people and the staff are all super sound. Loved the plugs/lights in each bunk bed too and free breakfast is a bonus. Would stay longer if I had the time!!

    This is a really great hostel especially given the price. The facilities are pretty basic, but they’re pretty decent. The bar is super cheap and they have happy hour and something going on almost every night. Beds are pretty comfortable and Staff are really friendly. It’s definitely worth a stay here. The only issue we had was the hot water didn’t work great in our room, but there are plenty of other showers so it wasn’t a big deal.

    Ich habe meine Zeit im Nomads St Kilda sehr genossen. Jeden Tag bietet das Hostel verschiedene Events an bei denen man sehr viele Leute kennen lernt. Das Hostel hat eine große Küche und in den Common areas arcade Games und einen Kicker. Wenn die Sonne draußen scheint ist man im Nu am Strand oder im Albert Park. Im Sommer gibt es fast jedes Wochenende ein Festival in St Kilda!Die Betten sind bequem und obwohl das Hostel oft ausgebucht ist findet man hinter den Vorhängen Privatsphäre. Komme zurück

    I was in a room to the street but that wasn’t a problem. In summer we had several fans and a heater in winter. As you can see I was there for several months and I really enjoyed my time. st Kilda is perfect for people who need a little distant to the busy city. The CBD is just a 20 minute tram ride away so it’s very close. Still you get the chance to relax a little with chill people at the beach or the rooftop. Really liked the quiet kitchen and the art work in the common areas.

    I enjoyed this hostel. I was in a 6 bed dorm all females, en-suite. The beds were nice, mattresses were comfy. Best of al was the curtains giving you privacy. The washroom was good enough in the bed room. The hostel was pretty clean usually. The only thing that would be better that I can think of is if all the bean bag chairs and sofas got cleaned that would be good once in a while. Loads of stains all over the place. The area was good as it was close to the trams and to the beach.

    I had a blast staying here. Eddy and Meadhbh in reception are such sweethearts. The guys doing events (Ali and Anouar) are like the funniest people I’ve ever met! I would totally recommend this hostel to anyone who staying in melbourne.

    There was only cold water in the bathroom! It is autumn so it is cold, the building is so old that the windows aren’t tight enough so the draft was coming in. Cinema room chairs were filthy. The photos do not reflect what the hostel really looks like. Only good thing was the pods.
