    South Yarra Hostel is in an awesome location - the city is easily reached by tram or a walk for those up for exploring. Josh who runs it is so friendly and accommodating and checks in on you making sure everything is up to standard, and if there is anyway he can help you. It’s a safe hostel with everything necessary to make your stay enjoyable. I would definitely stay here again.

    This is a really nice living hostel if you're going to hunker down, or stay while looking for a sharehouse. Good social vibes, but not rowdy like some of the cbd hostels, and with enough space that you're not tackling people to get ready in the morning or cook. It's also in a really nice location with parks, pubs, and cafes nearby, and sort of equidistant from the beach and cbd. I came expecting to stay a week, and have continued to extend. Definitely would recommend!

    I initially booked to stay in South Yarra hostel for two weeks and a month later I am still here with no immediate plans to leave as of yet ! The hostel is perfect for people who are looking for somewhere to stay that is both affordable and has a good/chilled atmosphere. The rooms are really spacious, so you don't feel like you're on top of one another and the hostel itself is in a really ideal location - halfway between the CBD and St Kilda, so you get the best of both worlds !

    I really think this place could be amazing with a refurbishment. It’s not a party hostel so it was nice and quiet. Great location near chapel street. The receptionist was lovely and very helpful. Downside is the cleanliness, it was cleaned everyday which was great but guests don’t clean up after themselves meaning it was pretty gross too cook in the kitchen. The mattress needed replacing too but with an update this place could be great :)

    Nice location. Can walk into the city in about 45m, most of the way through the botanical gardens and parks. Or get the tram from just outside the hostel. Kitchen usually a mess - somewhat expected in a backpacker hostel.
