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.

Liked: Kitchen and bathrooms always clean, good lounge area - loads of tables and sofas, good security in dorms, free breakfast, free sausage night, free wifi

Disliked: Nothing. Takes a while to get to CBD but tram stops right outside, and means it's much quieter.

Liked: it was very clean and comfortable, and also very safe. a bunch of gimmicks, like pancake breakfast, BBQs, tours etc. Also great: free shuttle service from the airport if you stay for 3 nights or more.

Disliked: almost everyone at this hostel was very young and it wasn't as diverse a group as in many other places. it's a nice location if you've got a lot of time, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who is only in melbourne for 3 nights like me, as it is too far from the city to walk and always taking the tram gets expensive.

Liked: Generally clean, kitchen facilities good however you had to fight to get a cup!! They definately need more plates etc for such a big hostel. Bathrooms were fine

Disliked: Staff are terrible! First they messed up our booking and we had paid for a more expensive room, which they couldnt give us! no refund was offered and overall they were so unhelpful. We asked how to get somewhere and it seems they can't be bothered to help you. Again not enough plates etc in the kitchen and there is no room to put your things in the fridges! We stayed in an 8 bed dorm and it was the tiniest most claustrophobic room!! nowhere to put your bag so cramped :-(
