Liked: Free Wifi for laptop owners, good atmosphere with tons of activities to meet people. Its pretty good accomodation for the price you pay.

Disliked: Lockers dont have power adapters for safe charging, and the bunk beds are really noisy, the pillows are a bit unconfortable.. Also a little bit far from the city, but the tram systems is great

26 March 2012 Customer would recommend this property

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: Habitat HQ est vraiment à la hauteur de sa réputation! nous en étions déjà convaincu avant d'arriver en Australie, car Camille avait tout fait pour que notre arrivée se fasse au mieux. En quelques mots: propre, bien placé, bien agencé, convivial... Les animations sont très bien organisées, tant à habitat qu'à l'extérieur!

Disliked: bien pensé à réserver car ce qui est bien est demandé

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.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Good location in St Kilda, close to transport to get to the CBD. Really helpful travel desk who we booked a couple of trips with. Friendly people. Bathrooms really clean and showers good, Nice communal area and free breakfast and Tea and Coffee was brilliant.

Disliked: Really small rooms, not much room to store luggage and as a consequence an 8 bed girls dorm was pretty crowded due to the sheer volume of belongings. Also no bar/cafe/restaurant

Liked: comfy beds and free barbecue very friendly and helpful staff member Katie at reception

Disliked: bathrooms could have been cleaner, maybe better to clean twice a day for such a big hostel breakfast was gone at 9:45, should be available until 10am, especially when people returned late from St Kilda Internet should be free or at least more than 1h free, for guests staying longer than 1 night

Liked: Overall an excellent hostel. They offer a lot of activities in the evenings and group experiences. The hostel is fully equipped with a large kitchen, laundry, pool table, vending machines, many internet booths, lounge area etc. The rooms are relatively large, and there are enough bathrooms that you don't have to wait for a shower.

Disliked: They could increase the amount of space available for the luggage room as well as tidy this up a little.
