Liked: I had a double room to myself ensuite with TV and bedside radio. It was pricey but suited me fine - quiet, spacious, with easy access to Melbourne.Breakfast was basic (bread and cereal) but kitchen lloked clean and airy. Staff full of enthusiasm (pub Crawl, open mic) and very helpful.I'd go back.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Loved almost everything about the hostel. Would recommend it to anyone and would definitely stay there again.

Disliked: It's in St Kilda, like most of the hostels in Melbourne. Using the computers is not free, like most of the hostels in Australia. Wifi is actually free, which in my opinion is normal for a hostel, but a lot of hostels in Australia this is actually not the case.

Liked: Staff were happy, warm & sunny people - really welcoming & helpful.Big communal area for chilling or sitting & talking; separate quiet area for movies and reading; outside garden area - with real plants & fresh herbs growing for anyone to use if they are inspired in cooking!Plenty of events to bring people together -and not just focused on pubcrawls; loved the local connection with CVA & trying to bring some eco & green awareness into backpackers lives

Disliked: Despite the notices on energy waste, water shortages & different bins for recycling there was still loads of waste - I guess this isn't the hostels fault but their efforts seemed to be lost on most people.Other than that - nothing to dislike :-)

Liked: Clean rooms, power points near your beds, lockable storage space under beds, clean showers and toilets.

Disliked: Computers not user friendly (can't save or use properly without admin account) and you have to pay 4 dollars to use them. Was told by one unhelpful employee its either 1 hour free computer use or free wifi. Not both. Kitchen can get v busy and not enough plates etc. Limited breakfast (til milk runs out!).
