28 June 2011 Customer would recommend this property

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: Friendly staff, lots going on, free breakfast and other meals on certain days

Disliked: Nothing. It would have been nice if our room-mates did not cover the entire floor with their belongings but that's not the hostel's fault and the staff were trying to get them to tidy up

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: Clean modern place with great facilities, and not too far from both town and St Kilda beach.

Disliked: Predominantly big groups of kids in early twenties, fine if your on the beer; not so good if your solo looking for a bit of sleep.

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.

Liked: I really enjoyed their different events in the evening like a Trivial Pursuit night, a concert and a "come-on-the-stage-and-do-what-you-can" night - they keep their guests busy and so the youth is not only sitting around and drinking. We had a lot of fun! this was one of the cleanest hostels in Australia, the staff was very helpful and the people around nice. Big common area, big kitchen, good wifi, tram station right in front of the hostel, groceries not far away. i had a great stay here.

Disliked: the cab from the CBD was about 27$

Liked: Nice common room, friendly atmosphere, clean rooms, lovely bathrooms for a hostel, good connection to tram network.

Disliked: No bar and not very near to food outlets. Location is good for the tram but not that near St Kilda centre or the beach, and if you will be mainly doing stuff in the city it might be better to stay nearer there.
