Liked: Night time activities were great, had a lot of fun! Location was handy- near 24 hr convenience store, trams and restaurants. Great atmosphere during day and night. Staff helpful. TV room was great.

Disliked: Two nights in a row the booking was muddled up- first night I had to sleep in a seperate room due to overbooking and then the second night we had to arrange to have a new girl moved as room was overbooked again. When we checked in, our beds weren't clean and after asking reception, they still weren't clean 6 hours later. Rooms weren't the cleanest and the cleaners usually came when people were either sleeping or in the bathroom. Would suggest coming to clean rooms around 12pm onwards.

Liked: Base St. Kilda is a nice place to stay as even in Winter the Beach looks very beautiful, the bars have heaters outside so it's even able to sit outside in the evening. The staff was very friendly and helpful as we booked a Breezer for a road trip along the Great Ocean Road with Base St. Kilda and got very cheap special offers for that.

Disliked: Only it was a little bit too big and anonymous for my sense of getting into contact with other people. But that's just my personal point of view. Over all I liked it there!

Liked: Breakfast and dinner were free due to the kitchen being shut. Great location in St Kilda with easy to use and frequent public transport to the city.

Disliked: The music from the bar is quite loud when your in the rooms. Sockets near the beds to charge phones, laptops etc would be handy.

Liked: A really laid back and friendly place. There are various things going on every night in the bar, but there is no pressure to take part and it wasn't too loud. The kitchen was closed due to a flood but they provided free breakfast and dinner instead which was good. I met some really cool people and a great time there. The st Kilda location was fantastic too.

Disliked: Not much, but the dorm was a bit on the small side and some staff were not as friendly as others.

Liked: It;s a party hostel with a busy bar with drink offers etc. Think fresher's week in a building. Loads of people would love all that, it just wasn't for us. Staff friendly enough. Nice ensuite bathroom in dorm. Nice location in St Kilda.

Disliked: Too much of a party hostel for us. People were terrible about cleaning up after themselves in the kitchen, and there were a lot of long termers, who seemed quite cliquey. Dorms not quite big enough to accommodate everyone's stuff comfortably. No space to sit and read a book/relax comfortably. Dorms and corridors a little shabbier than expected,

Disliked: Not much.
