Liked: The welcome from the staff was amazing, even for 9am...they are ways smiling an always willing to help. Everytime you pass reception, or a member of the team they are sure to say hello, or ask you how you are! The rooms are standard hostel room, although this is the only hostel that I have stayed in during my travels that has an en-suite (obviously shared between those in the room). Perfect location, juš around the corner from the busy high street of St.Kilda and ot a 10 minute tram into the city! Cheap, decent bar with nightly offers and a chill out room where you're able to cook & do your washing! Best Base yet!

Disliked: Can't comment! We enjoyed our stay here.

Liked: The facilities were clean and the room large enough (I was in the All Girls Sanctuary room) and the location ideal. Cleaning staff were very polite and did a good job. Frequent cleaning of the room's shower room. Lockable locker drawers under the bunk beds.

Disliked: Bad refund policy.Noise.My bunk bed (top one) was located at one metre of a ceiling fixed airconditioning unit. In order for the other girls to get the room to a temperature that was convenient for them, I had to breathe hot, dry air blown straight into my face. I would suggest for future purpose that the distance of the unit to the nearest bed is taken into account, for the health of the person sleeping in that bed. There was a far better location in that room, that was not into anybody's face.

Liked: Quite a big room Fairly decent shower Good bar area Good location Can drink alcohol in TV/kitchen room till 8pm

Disliked: Room was filthy dirty and smelt awful. Bunks were really low so can't sit up at all on bottom bunkThe carpet was so dirty that our feet stuck to it Stayed in Base hostels all over New Zealand, this is our first in Oz and we couldn't believe how dirty it was. Everyone else we met had recommended this hostel though so maybe we just got a bad room?

Liked: There was so much going on at the hostel, everyday and night there was something to do and an opportunity to meet new people or try new things! All the staff are really friendly, happy to help and as majority stayed at hostel themselves have great knowledge of area and what to do depending on budget/what you're looking for. Monday Bingo, free hotdogs, free yoga, running club and yours of Melbourne... What's not to love!

Disliked: Only a couple things really, if I were to be nitty gritty; how the kitchen shuts at 11pm every night so that removes the lounge/tv area if you wanted a chilled night. And the Wifi was terrible, only get in main foyer and was very slow at peak times.
