    This hostel is in a fantastic location - a bit out of the city centre but still easy to get to by tram, and with lovely parks in walking distance. The rooms are really spacious, and every guest has their own desk.

    South Yarra Hostel is easily one of the most chilled and friendly hostel environments I've stayed in! Everyone (especially the owner) were very nice and went out of their ways to make the experience better. The location was perfect and made it really easy to get all around Melbourne. I ended up extending my reservation even longer because of my great time. Definitely not a party hostel, but great for solo travelers.

    Great stay. Everyone was very friendly, staff and guests. Close to train station, trams and buses. New mattresses were very comfortable. Will be staying here next time in Melbourne.

    Perfect safe location near lovely botanical gardens, lots of transport into the city and st kilda is close too. Friendly staff at reception. Clean room but kitchen is run down and isn’t cleaned much or well at all and does smell when window isn’t open. Door lock system is good and safe. Bathrooms are big and good for a hostel but again needs to be cleaned more.

    Quiet place, with a great location. Showers weren't great. Average on cleanliness. Not a super social vibe, but everyone I met was really cool and friendly. Lacked a cool atmosphere.

    Was an ok place I guess but... the kitchen is disgusting, there were people actually doing acid and mdma in the kitchen on Friday night, I found a cockroach in my room and the showers are either boiling hot or freezing cold with no in between. Ideal location is the main good point.

    The only good thing about this hostel was the location. The bathrooms are old and dirty. The room only had a plug at one side so if you were on the other you had no access. The whole building smelled. I stayed 4 nights and there was only someone on reception 1 day. I didn’t cook as the kitchen was dirty and the cleaning utensils were dirtier than the dishes. People living long term had food in the rooms which began to smell (not owners fault). Also no key for the locker. Wouldn’t recommend
