Liked: Location is really good. Close to everything, easy to catch buses/trams and surrounded by restaurants and pubs.

Disliked: It is extremely dirty. Everything in the bedroom smells bad, the bathroom was very dirty and the sink was literally hanging (broken). Wifi doesn't work properly, it crashes at all the time. Also, there's no common area, so it's hard to socialise with people.

Liked: Not much I'm afraid! The staff were friendly and the location was within easy walking distance of the beach.

Disliked: Really poor standards of cleanliness! It was disgusting!!! But it was cheap so unfortunately you really do get what you pay for. Also be careful in St. Kilda as an area there are some spots in town that it's best not to be in as a single girl after dark, information that I wasn't aware of before I booked.

Trip Type:
City break

Liked: I liked the fact that the rooms were basically converted 1970s individual Australian-style motel rooms. They just take out the double bed, fridges, dining table and put in multiple bunks. So every room got its own private bathroom and shower, rather than one you share with everyone in the hostel. Also the common room areas had a good vibe from backpackers and there was (limited) space to park your car.

Disliked: Not a great deal about the property was bad. The kitchen was a mess but that's not really the fault of the staff, but backpackers who don't tidy up after themselves. The only other thing was the unexpected $30 fee for the room key. This is a deposit and you get that back with its safe return but I had no idea that you had to fork out $30, as it wasn't advertised nor have other backpackers I have stayed with done the same.
