Liked: Funny idea with the sanctuary n the free champagne coming with it :) Nice bar with good staff. The deal about cheap dinner n 2 free meals we liked

Disliked: Some of the staff especially the cleaning staff made it clear that they didnt really like their jobs. They let people check in way to early before the ones that were gonna leave even had checked out n still had like 30 min left before they had to(check out 10 a clock). And the cleaning staff came to early as well when people still were sleeping, before 10.30, they should not come before 12 at lest

Liked: Loved the party atmosphere of this place, it can be very social at time. If this is not what you are looking for choose another property

Disliked: Small Kitchen, and small TV Lounge seems like the only good hang out spot is in the Bar which is nice but some nights you need to take a break from it. Also stayed on the first floor can hear the music from the bar trying to sleep

Liked: rooms are really good, bathrooms are amazing. in st kilda which is a nice place for a couple of days. very secure place with lockers under bed.

Disliked: the atmosphere for meeting people is not good, i stayed here for about 4 days and hardly met anyone as downstairs in a big bar that is just like any other bar. not a good place to meet people, other than that its a good hostel, very busy at night tho as the bar turns into a club and at weekends ques form from locals outside the door.

Liked: Good looking reception, kitchen/common area and I thought the shower in the en-suite was of very good quality. Really liked the option to hire gym membership at a reasonable price, other hostels should take note!

Disliked: As someone travelling alone I didn't have a great experience at the hostel, the people stayingin my room kept themselves to themselves and I feel there was a lack of daytime and nighttime activites which would have made it easier to meet people. I was also staying on the 1st floor so the noise from the bar downstairs was really loud. The hallways could also do with a refurb.

Liked: Efficiently run and in a good location close to the beach and tram stop. However It is be costly to get trams into the centreevery day so I think its preferable to stay in the city.

Liked: Location is excellent. This is the second time we've stayed - it's right in the heart of St Kilda. It's lively, and has plenty of spaces to socialise. You can drink your own booze til 8, which is not bad to say they have their own licensed bar. It's modern, and rooms are en suite and have luggage storage under beds. And the kitchen is well equipped.

Disliked: Ladies night used to mean free drinks for females - BRING THAT BACK!!! Ladies get discounted drinks, but free drinks are much better.
