Liked: I stayed 2 nights in the female sanctuary dorms & ended up booking 6 more nights for the rest of my stay in Melbourne. Towels provided were great, free shampoo & conditioner was a nice bonus, as well as the free champagne from 8pm to 9pm. The beds were really comfortable. The ensuite bathroom was big & cleaned every day. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Disliked: The location is a bit far from the city (although a great location within St Kilda) but it's easy enough to take the tram into the city, about 30 minutes or so.

Liked: I stayed in a private room for 1 night, and it was great. Bed was really comfortable, bathroom was good. The staff was nice and helpful. 24 hour reception meant I was able to buy a soda at 3am (jetlag). The location is great for St Kilda and really close to a tram stop. It's a bit far from the city but easy enough to get there by tram.

Disliked: The breakfast was expensive for what they were offering so I didn't buy it. Wifi is also really expensive.

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.
