I enjoyed my stay at Home. It is a basic hostel but comes at a fair price. Nothing fancy but has a homely feel to it. Extremely social enviroment, perfect for travellers to meet new people and feel comfortable for the duration of your stay. I would recommend it, location is perfect. Close to beach, nightlife, city centre and right... More

Great location in st kilda close to bars, restaurants and the beach/Luna Park. I would go as far as saying the staff were fantastic and they had free parking too. Unfortunately we had numerous problems with noise at stupid hours.. I get partying and having a laugh. But when some idiot decided to have the loudest drunk conversation outside your... More

Hi! Thanks for reviewing. I'm really sorry about the noise disturbance. As you speculated, we do take midnight noise seriously. I'm like you and cant stand when people do that! It's unfortunate that some people can be so selfish. Next time, have a chat with reception as we do offer ear plugs for instances just like this :) That aside,... More

Home travellers was just like home. I was supposed to be there five days but ended up staying for five weeks. There was amazing people and i had so much fun. The staff was just great and always helping if u needed anything. The rooms were cleaned everyday and so was the kitchen. Can't really complain for anything.

We stayed in an 8 bed dorm for three nights (30$ pp/night) and that was enough for our taste. Every dorm has its own bathroom which is good and there is a spacious though still too small kitchen where you can also store your groceries. The staff was also pretty helpful but still there were a few things that really... More

Stayed here as a solo female traveller on Holiday, really looked forward to it, good point was I had a large room with fridge & own bathroom. However the front door didn't shut properly, there is mould on the windows & corners of room, tired scruffy decor, my kettle didn't work & I asked reception & was told they would... More

I can highly recommend this hostel to people who are looking for a nice and relaxed stay in st Kilda. The atmosphere is really good, the staff is friendly and the rooms are always clean plus every room has its own bathroom. The kitchen is alright, there are just a bit to less dishes so sometimes you have to improve... More

I had the best time here and made some really nice friends. The staff were all incredibly helpful and friendly too. Everything was very clean and well looked after. I highly recommend Home in St Kilda.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for the last two weeks of our time in Melbourne, but wished we had stayed here for the whole time. All communal areas kept clean and tidy (Kitchen cleaned 3 times a day!) Excellent value for money, fantastic location (near to the beach, bars and shops) and the staff are just brilliant! Really welcoming... More

I have never felt the need to leave such a bad review, until now. We booked this hostel for our last couple of nights in Aus after spending a whole year here. We are gutted we chose this place. We booked simply because of the reviews. Only to find out, these "good reviews" are written by the PERMANENT residents, and... More

If you wanna stay close to the beach, in the center of St Kilda, this Hostel is the right destination for you. You stay very familiar with loads of other backpackers all around the world in a quite calm area of st Kilda.
