    Great place to stay, slightly more expensive than the other budget hostels around Melbourne, but I think it’s definitely worth the money. Rooms and the beds are very comfortable, even in a 12 bed dorm you feel a sense of privacy with the option of a curtain on your bed. Homely feel to the place, lovely high ceilings and wooden floors, staff were all great, very friendly and happy to help however they can. Definitely recommend !

    Best hostel I’ve ever been to, so tidy, modern, clean, people are friendly, staff are lovely, lovely living spaces and atmosphere and cool bar. So much privacy with each bed having its own curtains, lockers, powersockets and table and phone holder by your bed. Cannot recommend it enough. Location great too! Amazing value for money

    Really good hostel, beds are nice and private with the curtain. Good to have so many plugs in the bed too. Showers and bathrooms all clean. Only improvement would be a bigger or second fridge!

    Fantastic hostel and staff. The highlight easily being the best hostel bed I have had to this day. Good curtains, warm douvee, shelf, light, outlets, locking cubby for personal belongings, and additional drawer if that's not enough. All within arm's reach on a sturdy and comfortable bed. Apart from the bed, the common area is nice and the kitchen is small but does it's job well. Nice little bar and solid cowork area. Showers/bathrooms not the nicest but good hot water! Definitely recommend:)

    Overall I really enjoyed my stayed. Great dorms, great staff and located in St Kilda (unfortunately close to where most homeless are). The fridge of the kitchen is also small for a big hostel. Anyways, I’ll recommend it.

    As a solo female traveller I felt safe here, stayed in the 12 bed dorm and it was great. The bathrooms and kitchen are a bit rough but nothing crazy. Great vibe in the place.

    It's very far away from the central yet it's near the beach. The staffs are fairy nice. Just the room is very dark when the light is off. There's no hot water available for wash up especially during winter. The kitchen is not as clean as expected. I could hear lots of noises outside the room in the middle of night and I couldn't have a good rest at all. Thus, staying there one night wasn't worth at all..
