Liked: Free wifi

Liked: Spotlessly clean hostel with excellent facilities. The first hostel we saw with ovens in the kitchen! By far the best hostel we stayed in, in Australia... or anywhere!

Disliked: Wireless internet was a bit ropey because they recently changed it to a free service. It is being looked at though

Liked: I've stayed in a lot of hostels over the years and this has become my favourite ever! Comfy rooms, great shared areas, respectful roommates, amazing bathrooms and really helpful staff - just a great experience all in all.

Disliked: Very little, the common thought is that the location isn't perfect but you're literally a minute away from trams that'll take you anywhere in the city!

Liked: Love the St.Kilda beach area around the hostel and it is not too far from downtown by train.....walking will take you a while (as I experienced but enjoyed the beautiful walk along the beach) .........The location of this hostel is the main asset but it also has a comfortable, safe and clean environment.Clean, lively and fun people in the sitting area, exceptional kitchen area

Disliked: Most of the staff were good but one of the staff members was in a really bad mood and unpleasant (though helpful). Don' t like how they limit how long you can use the internet

Liked: Lots of activities, helpful staff, big clean kitchen, big clean bathroom.

Disliked: It's on a big road that's not that great to walk down at night - but the tram stop is not far from the hostel, so you just have to cross the road and the hostel is 2 minutes away from there.

Liked: This place was by far the best hostel I've stayed in, and this mainly for the extremely easy going, welcoming atmosphere. The lounge area is big, and there is always some activity planned, like the winter wonderland while we were there, meaning the place is full and it's easy to meet some great people. The staff do all that they can to make your stay a fun one, not just a place to sleep. There is a big kitchen, and storage area so you don't have spend the time eating sandwiches. The rooms are a good size, the bathrooms and showers big and always clean.

Disliked: There is nothing to dislike about this place, as long as you don't mind taking the tram to Melbourne city centre, as it is too far to walk, but that didn't bother us.
