Liked: Staff were happy, warm & sunny people - really welcoming & helpful. Big communal area for chilling or sitting & talking; separate quiet area for movies and reading; outside garden area - with real plants & fresh herbs growing for anyone to use if they are inspired in cooking! Plenty of events to bring people together -and not just focused on pubcrawls; loved the local connection with CVA & trying to bring some eco & green awareness into backpackers lives

Disliked: Despite the notices on energy waste, water shortages & different bins for recycling there was still loads of waste - I guess this isn't the hostels fault but their efforts seemed to be lost on most people. Other than that - nothing to dislike :-)

Liked: a really lovely helpful lady on reception helped make my stay. They have good facilitites, wi-fi, tele, pool table. the rooms and bathrooms are clean and pleasant. The central areas have a nice, chilled out vibe.

Disliked: St. kilda is a really nice part of melbourne, but it is a little far out. The only way to get to twon is by tram, which as a bakcpacker on a tight buidget meant an extra 8 dollars a day. Not much but it can add up. Coles is nearby though as is the beach and most trips will pick you up from the hostel, so its not a major drawback.

Liked: Clean rooms, power points near your beds, lockable storage space under beds, clean showers and toilets.

Disliked: Computers not user friendly (can't save or use properly without admin account) and you have to pay 4 dollars to use them. Was told by one unhelpful employee its either 1 hour free computer use or free wifi. Not both. Kitchen can get v busy and not enough plates etc. Limited breakfast (til milk runs out!).

Liked: Very friendly atmosphere, rooms were comfortable and events at the hostel made it quite easy to meet other people. Evan, who worked at the hostel, was very friendly and made the effort to get know people, he even walked us back from a bar cawl. He was very approachable and gave me lots of help to decide what to do with the rest of my stay.

Liked: Free breakfast, free wifi, free shuttle from the airport with three nights stay, lockers in the rooms.

Disliked: It was about a fifteen minute tram ride to the CBD, and the washrooms were not very clean (someone was sick on the floor in the middle of the night and it wasn't cleaned up until afternoon). The bread at breakfast was also often used before the end of breakfast and wasn't always replaced.

Liked: most staff were friendly, lots of room to relax, good security.

Disliked: exorbitant deposit for towels ($20), an obvious cash cow at the expense of forgetful travellers. one rude staff member, maybe if she doesnt like her job she could go on centrelink instead. there are plenty of people that would appreciate her job more than she evidently does.

Liked: The staff were really friendly and the dorm room was really spacious with lots of room for luggage. It was close to the supermarket and easy access to St Kilda Beach and the tram to Melbourne city centre is practically on the doorstep. I stayed for 3 nights so was able to take advantage of the free airport transfer which was great.
