In a great location in the heart of St Kilda - a modern, clean and comfortable place to stay. The staff were fantastic and nothing was a problem for them. The club was pumping and a lot of fun, the bar staff were terrific and kept up with the pace. Every time I dealt with reception I found the staff... More

Stayed here with a team, ended up sharing with people I'd never met - was very fun to share stories with overseas visitors. The rooms have enough space, with underbed lockers to stow your stuff. The bar downstairs was fantastic with cheap meals and drinks, plus plenty of fun things happening. The rec room downstairs is also quite nice, with... More

It is good for a bed, clean and good location. Staff are cheerful and the place is kept clean. Because it is a base there is a 'club' downstairs so its quite load at night and they have different things going on each night.

There are good things and bad things about this hostel. Breakfast was really good and honestly cheap. Rooms are clean and the majority of staff were friendly apart from the guys who works at night. It takes only 5minutes walking to the beach. My major complain was noisy in the last day. Sleeping was impossible.
