26 July 2011 Sean would recommend this property

Liked: Security is huge here - cameras everwhere, need a keycard to get onto your level and again your room. After 10 or 11 pm front door locks and you need to provide your name and room number to get in. They have lockable cubbies so I could actually unpack! Soap in the bathrooms - bathrooms are really nice! the whole place is cleaned daily, it's insane. Staff were ultra friendly - recommend Chuck's city tour AND his pub crawl. They let you play your mp3 player over the pa, guitars provided free of charge. Atmosphere is relaxed. Definitely not aimed at being a party hostel (though you can certainly party while staying here). Really good spot - met awesome people.

Disliked: My room smelled of feet/body odor every morning - even after cleaning. About a 15-20 minute tram ride to the Melbourne CBD but St. Kilda is good enough if you don't want to end the night at 11:30(last tram ride)

Liked: it was big and open. there was a lot offered to meet people and see the country. free breakfast was good (although, it ran out, so get in early). very clean. organised. free wifi is great, but you have to keep logging in.

Disliked: the 'lockers' were difficult to use and often broken. they were also metal so scraped early in the morning when others were sleeping. the hostel is in St Kilda which is out of the city if you want to spend most of your time in the city, and only 1 tram runs by it on the weekends, which can add time. beds are very hard, but clean.

Liked: First stay at a hostel, if this one is the norm I think I'll sell my house.

Disliked: The door to our room wouldn't lock if you left it to close, which nearly all the guests did. Not great for security, apparently this happens all the time other guests were saying. It was however repaired the next day. So not really a negative after all.

Liked: The staff were very friendly and exceeded my expectations on their quality of service throughout our stay. The location is outside of the city, but St. Kilda is an absolutely beautiful place with it's close proximity to the beach, an entertainment park, a street of cute shops and cafes.

Disliked: Nothing that strikes out.

Liked: Bathrooms are excellent, very clean and well maintained. Kitchen good with plenty of storage space and equipment, but got messy. Lots of places to sit in common areas and good courtyard space. Beds were comfy and clean.

Disliked: Some not all of the staff were extremely rude and looked down on you. They seem to have a lot of long stay guests that have there own group and don't like to involve any others and staff were always involved with this group.
