Liked: Lovely, clean toilets and showers and enough of them! Bed clothes were nice and warm, though beds a little squeeky. Paying attention to environmental issues a BIG bonus. Unfortunately, not everyone understands the instructions... Showers and water running all the time and people not recycling. :(

Disliked: Messy kitchen, but that's not like the Habitat HQ didn't try to influence the backpackers - there were notes and signs everywhere. More dry kitchen towels needed. And new cutting boards.A little noisy, but didn't affect sleep. Hard to fit in, because the place is packed with people who've been staying there for ages. Not a very friendly atmosphere.

Liked: Nice place in a great location by the tram station that takes you right into Melbourne. They have a nice communal area, tv room and outside area to hang out. 200 mb of included Internet is also good. Some staff was warm and approachable. I would return.

Disliked: After coming from Asia where most places take the shoes off at the door, it did feel a little dirty. But I think that is because that's just the norm to wear shoes inside. The internet was a bit finicky and it was a bit of a hassle to have to log into the Internet every time you wanted to use it. Most of the staff were just neutral, neither very friendly or cold, but did not seem to want to offer help any more than minimally required.

Liked: - Free basic breakfast- helpful travel desk (when they were around!)- the hostel runs events every night and tries to get everybody involved.

Disliked: - choice of either wifi or computer use. If you want both then you have to pay for both- the travel desk was manned not early or long enough (usually between 10-4pm which is no use if you're out the whole day doing something)- VERY squeaky beds

Liked: Everything is brand new and I think each room has it's own bathroom which is really nice and clean. It's in a good location to catch the tram into the city and walk to St. Kilda attractions.

Disliked: There's nothing to see/do in the immediate surrounding area. Everything is about a 10-15 minute walk. That being said, it's really central so if you want to see St. Kilda and the city it's a good choice and don't think you can beat the cleanliness of the rooms/bathrooms.

Liked: It was really clean and in a great area in St.Kilda, a 2min walk to the tram to get it into Melbourne city. The staff were really helpful and had a lot of give away nights and free walking tours. They also paid for our shuttle bus from the Airport, if you stay more than 3nights. Theres also free wi-fi, which is really hard to come by in Oz.

Disliked: The wi-fi connection wasn't great
