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

Went here on a Sunday with some friends and it was great. Really good music, drinks offers and most importantly great craic. Felt like Sunday sessions at home. Brilliant. Only thing it was packed, so had a bit of drink spilt over us. Staff and bouncers were lovely.

The room we had was absolutely fine - clean, large enough for 3 giant suitcases and 2 people. Portable radiator was great and often needed as it gets very cold (old windrows and an old building) Sometimes noisy but its over a pub, and we never heard any noise after 1am. Bathrooms were clean, mattresses slightly flat but not hugely... More

Staff confused order and when the wrong food arrived at our table, the waitress was unbelievable rude and slammed the meal down before walking off! When the correct food arrived, it was barely edible... We would not recommend this place to anyone!

All in all we had 6 weeks in this home from home. We spent Xmas and new year there and loved it so much we had to return for another 4 weeks. It's right beside st kilda junction, great for trams and buses. Your super close to the hip and trendy chapel st, or the backpackers favourite fitzroy st. Rooms... More

It had a very cosy atmosphere and the staff were very helpful and friendly! The rooms were cleand and had faucets in the room so you don't have to run to the bathroom when you just need to brush your teeth or wash your face. It was very quiet during the night so we had no problem sleeping which I... More
