DISGUSTING! After sampling many budget backpacker hostels accross the world, this is by far THE WORST accomodation I have ever had the misfortune to spend a night in. Rooms STINK of cigarettes and sweat. (No wonder as one guy walked into the room smoking...) There are dirty plates and cups all over the floor. Bathroom was filthy. When I arrived... More

I stayed at Home Travellers Motel for 2 nights whilst visiting St Kilda. Luckily I was just looking for somewhere to crash for 2 nights and did not plan on spending anytime at hostel as I really would not have wanted to! I had booked into 6 bed dorm but when I arrived into room there was actually only 5... More

Everything in this hostel was horrible, especially the staff they were so unfriendly! The room was smelly and the bathroom was disgusting they didn't cleaned it every day, ask it a few times but they kept telling me they cleaned it. Sorry but who was in that room every day?! WiFi connection was terrible. My advise don't stay here!

Although St Kilda has fantastic shops and cafes and restaurants - even pubs - and the Sunday market is great, the choice of Home Travellers Motel proved to be poor. Overall the standard is pretty bad, with creaking bunk beds (which could be easily fixed with a spanner), lack of good cleaning of toilets (we shouldn't need to ask), and... More

We booked the double room with en suite. Really nice! Spacious, good bed, clean and nice extras like tv, coffee, tea, microwaves, soaps etc. Room for improvement in the shower, heat of the water fluctuates a lot, reception not manned a lot of times but when you ring the bell somebody arrives soon enough. Bit noisy because some people celebrating... More

I stopped by Melbourne for a night on ma trip Sydney to Adelaide and I decided to book a room in Home Travellers Motel for the night. It was a really good choice as the location is near of many point of interest. The night included a wine and cheese tasting that I had the opportunity to have with others... More

The rooms are ok if you can overlook the peeling paint, mold, and stained towels. My issue was we went to check in (private room) and were informed there was new ownership so not only was our reservation lost they refused to honor the rate of 75 dollars insisting we now pay 85! The best part was as I explained... More

Great hostal with great people and staff. Perfect for backpackers like myself. Cheap and cheerful and it's exactly what is says on the tin. Good location and not far from the beach at all. Highly recommended

This hostel is marketed as homey, quiet alternative. Staff were very friendly and I had the double room with its own ensuite. Tea, coffee, milk, kettle, toasters and cups were provided. That's the positives. If you don't mind noise, don't need frills like heating or lighting, and don't mind about a bit of grime then this is OK for you.... More

Hi, I'm so sorry your stay was so below par. Although I was not present on the particular Friday night you stayed with us I can firmly say that every night at Home Travellers is not like the one you described. Occasionally (some Fridays or Saturdays) our guests like to have a bit of a party but all staff working... More
