Stayed here over a weekend in December. I fully regret booking here. If you like a dirty, no care given, smelly, hostel, then this would be perfect for you! Customer service is very poor from when you first get to the reception and throughout. Stayed in a 4 bed dorm room with my friends and there was no chance in... More

When we arrived there was a problem with our booking, the receptionist made a huge effort to sort this out which was really good. Other than that there was no positives. The room smelt horrible, there was clothes and rubbish everywhere, even some old sandwich crusts next to the bed! The hostel itself was falling apart and the bathrooms were... More

Hi and thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Our rooms are cleaned daily by our housekeeping team, if by chance you run into an unsavoury room a quick word to the 24 hour reception will have that cleanliness issue sorted immediately. We are currently renovating all our bathrooms and expect them to be completed by the end... More

I stayed at All Nations for 3 nights last week and it was awesome! I was pretty nervous because I was travelling by myself, but the reception staff were really welcoming and friendly and they even upgraded me for free! There's a big common area were everyone hangs out, so it was really easy to meet people. They have a... More

First of all I will rank it as Good not Very good but no option for that. Moved in as it was close to my workplace and used the $161 for 4 bed dorm. For me the good point are that it got free food as other Nomad had (free pasta, rice, tea, coffee) You just need some simple ingredients... More

Hi and thanks for the great review! Unfortunately we cannot consume alcohol in our hostel as it is a breach out liquor licence. Instead we offer a ‘guest’ rate in the bar, giving all in-house guests cheap drinks all night long! Hope to see you soon More

we booked an 8-bed-dorm for 3 nights and ended up having the whole room for ourselves for 4 days, which was great but is not guaranteed, of course. unfortunately, half the room didn't have light since one of the light bulbs was broken and it was pretty cold, the heater was just too small. if you are a light sleeper,...

Hi and thanks for the great review! We are glad you had such a great time at All Nations! In the future, a quick stop to the 24hour reception desk will have those lights fixed straight away! Safe Travels, All Nations More

Good location near southern cross train/bus station. The mad travel store downstairs was nice, great people working there. That is the only positive I can say about this dump. The staff were useless and rude, total d^%kheads. One girl just chatted away on her phone while people lined up to check in or out or ask a question at reception,... More

We picked this place on a whim, we just needed a place to crash as we arrived on a late flight and were leaving on an early train the next morning. The hostel is pretty clean, we were in a 10 bed dorm and the room was huge. There was plenty of space for the 5 bunk beds and everyone's... More

i got to the hostel at 12:30AM, the power was out so could not check in. the staff working were unprofessional about the entire situation (save one younger male who was working desk- thank you), including about three young females discussing how they were "too drunk to deal with this." Totally understandable that this was beyond anyone's control but could... More

I read some really bad reviews on this place but had bed hoppers to use so booked myself in anyway. If you want luxury this is not the place for you but if you're just looking for a place to rest your head for the night it's ok. The location is good, right near flinders and southern cross station, this... More

Location to train station was second to none, especially for early morning departures. However, this is where the positives end. The bedrooms and bathrooms were dirty, the kitchen was too small for the number of people staying here and was also dirty, there was no hot water available in the showers, there was noise all through the night from partying...
