    This hostel was excellent even when there was a water leak in the original hostel, they relocated use to Selina St. Kilda. The staff was so friendly and helpful, and the location was right by the water. The best part was definitely the insanely comfortable beds and black out curtains, which was excellent for jet lag! Would definitely recommend staying here for any solo backpackers!!

    Great stay! The common spaces are fantastic - lively and homey. The bar is a fun place to hang out and meet people. The kitchen space had a fridge that said no bags but that was not enforced so it was hard to put groceries in. The breakfast is basic but worth the money. I stayed in a 6 bed shared dorm. The rooms need more lighting and more PowerPoints as there in only one PowerPoint between bunks. Bunks need curtains and individual lights. The bathrooms were clean and the staff were friendly.

    this hostel is great. the location is perfect, right in the centre of melbourne so very accessible. the hostel is so so clean and has great facilities, the cinema room is really nice. the staff were great. the beds were very comfy and 2 pillows! (almost felt like a hotel!) however, the atmosphere could be improved slightly. the bar downstairs is good but there was a techno event on a saturday night and you could hear it all over the hostel.

    Location was good and hostel was pretty clean! Still relatively new so there weren’t too many ppl there. The slams were pretty loud when ppl close their doors (due to the structure/ design), somewhat annoying at times.

    The hostels communal spaces are really nice, the kitchen is a bit messy but the tables and sofas are really nice with the plants surrounding them. The hostel has a lovely view of the train-station which lights up at night. It is in a good location if you like to be in the CBD. Although I did leave 2 days early as people in my room decided to not go to sleep and the beds are not very private, it was very uncomfortable. Also 7 men and me being only woman in the room wasn't great.
