Customer review

15 August 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Brilliant location in St Kilda, just a short walk from lots of cafes, bars and the tram if you need to go to the CBD. The bar was pretty good too. Only downside was a really weak shower.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

03 May 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Fun, great location, lots to do near by, but don't expect to sleep a lot. Lots of young kids looking to party, mixed with a few older sleazy guys just looking to hook up. If want a hostel where u can meet people with something interesting to say go elsewhere. If u want to party then it's the place to stay.
