OK I have given this hostel 5 stars... but that is because I personally enjoyed it! The staff were amazing, big shout out to Joe and Stevie, who provided a fantastic service, thank you and the rest of the crew for looking after us! The beds were extremely comfortable as they were new, the room sizes were a tad on... More

We intended to stay here for 4 nights and left after a few hours. Most of the reviews we read had been positive (obviously we didn't do our research thoroughly enough), the price was good, and the idea of a pint on a punt had some romantic charm, so we booked for 4 nights, and paid on arrival. The building... More

Now I'm not one to complain usually, at all. I've stayed in a variety of different hostels, hotels and campsites throughout my travels of Australia and so have experienced the highs and the lows that come with backpack living. I understand the fact 'you pay for what you get' and have never found it necessary up to this point to... More

Well, the hostel is quite cheap and close to St Kilda but that's the only good thing. It was loud all day and night, full of drunk people having conversations at 4am in front of your door. Dirty, smelly bathrooms and water temperature was quite cold and suddenly you got burned... But you had warmish water for about 5-10 minutes... More

My partner and I stayed here for 2 weeks while waiting for our apartment to become available. We only intended to stay 1 week, but got pretty comfy and stayed 2. We found the staff friendly, we got a free upgrade to a private room on arrival which was nice. The room was dated, but had a sink in the... More

Decent value for the money. Got a twin room which was a nice size and had a sink in it. Very disappointed by the kitchen and lounge room which were tiny for the amount of guests staying there (we stayed in the "down season"). If two people were using the kitchen they were basically tripping over each other. Also, we... More

I had high hopes for staying here and meeting people during our first few days in Melbourne, but after several attempts to get involved with the group of long term residents we gave up and just went about doing our own thing until we moved on. They were so rude that they didn't respond when you said hello to them,... More
