Liked: Loved being so close to St Kilda and not far from city. Location was great. Staff very cool. A lot of opportunities to meet people with so many events. Only there for a couple of nights, would have loved to stay longer. Room was really clean and bed most comfortable from my travels so far.

Disliked: Nothing to dislike at all. Top stay!

Liked: large free safe locker under bed, eco theme, free herb garden, friendly staff, lots activities, common area really chiled, all guests friendly, not lots of long term claiming space, friendly staff, lots of large fridges, located at tram stop.

Disliked: the showers downstairs female the water does not drain towards plug so whole area is wet all the time, need squeegy brushs to push the water away.

Liked: Nice communal areas, good tv room, plenty of space to chill or to socialise. Bathrooms are fine and kitchen is a good size. Hostel organises good events and has tour booking facilities.

Disliked: The hostel desperately needs to buy more plates and cups etc. most times we went to make dinner or a drink there was either nothing (literally) in the cupboard or very little. Often gave up and did someones discarded dirty dishes so we had something to use :-) showers need curtains to stop your stuff getting soaked. If you are a light sleeper request a room not on the ground floor.

Liked: Great kitchen facilities. Plenty to go around on the free breakfast. Heaps of events. Walking tour of Melbourne cbd and at Kilda very helpful. Staff answered any questions we had. Definitely look out for spencer. He totally made our trip! Did so much to help us out and make sure we knew where we were going and what we where doing! Besides being hallerious he's a life saver with all his maps and advice!

Disliked: Lots of long stayers and people working so you have to be extra outgoing if you want to mix in with other guests. Can be a but daunting

Liked: Beds and showers were ckean. Common area was spacious and relaxing.

Disliked: The overwhelming majority of the people staying here are in their early 20s (im 34) so it was hard to break in to their cliques. This is one of the only hostels Ive felt alone in on my 4 month trip through SEA even though it was packed with people. Staff wasnt rude but they werent pleasant either.

Liked: They have their own travel desk and each week have an itinery of events going on so if you arrive (like me) and have no idea what to do in melbourne they are really helpful and you can sign up to do tours and all sorts of stuff.

Disliked: The first room i stayed in was a little small but when we booked extra nights we were moved into another dorm which was LOADS bigger and nicer.

Liked: - Free basic breakfast - helpful travel desk (when they were around!) - the hostel runs events every night and tries to get everybody involved.

Disliked: - choice of either wifi or computer use. If you want both then you have to pay for both - the travel desk was manned not early or long enough (usually between 10-4pm which is no use if you're out the whole day doing something) - VERY squeaky beds

01 July 2012 Leena would recommend this property

Liked: Lovely, clean toilets and showers and enough of them! Bed clothes were nice and warm, though beds a little squeeky. Paying attention to environmental issues a BIG bonus. Unfortunately, not everyone understands the instructions... Showers and water running all the time and people not recycling. :(

Disliked: Messy kitchen, but that's not like the Habitat HQ didn't try to influence the backpackers - there were notes and signs everywhere. More dry kitchen towels needed. And new cutting boards. A little noisy, but didn't affect sleep. Hard to fit in, because the place is packed with people who've been staying there for ages. Not a very friendly atmosphere.
