    For the prices, it's exactly what you would expect and more. Superb location if you want to be close to the beach. With the extra benefits of discount in the bar and the free breakfast (even though its a travelers budget breakfast), it is absolute value for money.

    for the price this hostel is very good. however it does not have any atmosphere (or at least when i went) it seemed not many people were there, and is quite a way out of the centre of melbourne so hard to get to fitzroy and northern melbourne from here. the property was very clean and the staff were good.

    The staff was friendly, But it was impossible to sleep, really noisy and the room was not clean as well as the bathroom. The good thing was that they offered breakfast.

    Broken showers, floor tiles, vending machines and doors, and no attempts to repair it in sight. An old building in desperate need of refurbishment!! Was there for 4 nights and never even saw “hostel staff” or the reception being open. Thank god there was the pub with its friendly bartenders downstairs, and excellent location between Chapel St and St Kilda, otherwise this would’ve been a complete bust..

    I called them before my flight telling them that my flight will land after midnight. The said, "no worries someone will be at reception". I travelled from a warm weather place and came to Melbourne midnight was very cold but can't get in for a warm sleep coz no reception at all. I knocked and ring again the number no one would ans. I ended sleeping on the street that night without proper clothes for that cold night. Worst customer service at its best. Many hostels nearby, book with them instead.
