I stayed at this place for almost three weeks in the 4 bed female dorm where I was the only guest in the room for most of the time. The place has the basic facilities you need. The standard is not good but it's ok for the price. It get's very cold in the winter. Some of the staff are... More

Stayed at St Arnauds in October 2012 for a full week. The facilities are basic but what you would expect on a budget. I stayed in a single room which was on the top floor. Staff assisted me with my (very heavy) case and were friendly. The fridge in the room was as much as I needed to store a... More

This place is shabby, dark and the No. 8 tram rattling down the road in front of it will keep you awake at night. However, it's cheap and the common rooms (kitchen, dining room and lounge) make it a great place for meeting people. It's also very handy for anyone going to the MCG, involving a 25 minute walk across... More

Back in December 2013, I sat with a map and a plan, the plan of all all plans. A big trip around Australia with my 9 year old daughter, I booked the flights and all that was left was accommodation. Obviously wanting to say a pound or two I looked for budget, now I have travelled the world and as... More

The property is really cosy & you feel at home straight away. It is a huge building with lots of rooms, they do really well to keep it so clean. The kitchen is large & has lots of pots, pans, plates, cutlery etc. We stayed in winter & there was a heater in the room which made the room really... More

This hostel was once a 'senior' home. I felt like i was staying in my grandmother's home here -cozy, full of trinkets, dark corridors and somewhat musty. The hostel is like a maze. It took me two days to get to know my way around. The kitchen is a decent size and comes fully equipped. There are lots of common... More

Front desk initially pretty miserable as we arrived with 10 mins to spare before they closed. The room was ok, sheets were clean but my half of the bed was so uncomfy,I could feel all the springs. The bathroom floor was wet most of the time as the shower leaked, not always loo paper. No spoons for the 'breakfast', no... More

This is a rambling, old house in a good area. And that's where the good review ends. Firstly the owner is an absolute dragon. A noxious Irishwoman with an obvious chip on her shoulder, rules the roost with an iron voice and an overfed cat at her side. If her jagged, searing accent doesn't get you, her unforgiving halitosis will.... More

After driving through South Yarra in a taxi, taking in the views of the botanical gardens, the beautiful, well kept houses and the quirky streets I had a good feeling about this hostel.... Then I arrived! Opposite a row of clean, well kept houses stood this dirty, unmaintained, run down building. My friend and I looked at each other and... More

The house certainly has character, and you get the feel that you are visiting some old family member (with and odd taste in magazines). Location is good, and their description as to how you find your way there is spot on. The breakfast is fine and the kitchen facility is quite okay. That said, the beds are noisy and squeeky... More
