Alexandra Roman thinks…

"One of my favorite hostels in Melbourne! Not quite in the heart of St Kilda, but easy enough walk or tram! Great atmosphere, easy to meet people and make friends. Free wifi is awesome. Absolutely…"

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.

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.
