Easy going,close to St.Kilda & tram stations, plenty of restaurants, and shops. I stayed in this place for 10 days and loved it. There is a nice lounge downstairs, and reasonable prices for drinks. The kitchen was packed most of the time.Luckily,there is an outdoor area overlooking the highway, and is great place to chill out and have social chat.Highly... More

This place has a good vibe, mainly because of the people who stay there. The hostel does put on some good nightly events, and the staff involved make sure it is fun. The kitchen can get a bit hectic during dinner so you might want to eat before 6 or after 9. But beware of the staff, namely Sinead. She... More

Hi Renforth, All feedback is appreciated and taken seriously. This ensures that we can continue to grow and develop our levels of service and our product.

I stayed here back in 2012 for a bit over a month and reviewed it above average, unfortunately things have gone a bit downhill since then. I did enjoy my stay since there are some great people to be met and the staff is pleasant, however there needs to be more attention paid to some key areas by the management... More

I arrived late from Brisbane and wasn't feeling well. The front desk staff were very polite and helpful. The hallways were clean as were the rooms and bathrooms. I enjoyed the common area and the huge communal kitchen. It's a close walk to the coast and is super easy to get to and from Melbourne's CBD.

I arrived in Melbourne not knowing a single person and by the end of the first night I had made friends for life! Living in Habitat HQ made life so easy, the staff are friendly, helpful, talented and are just incredible people. The price was very reasonable for the few weeks I was there and it never crossed my mind... More

We arrived at 2200 and there was live music playing and a crowd of people in the common room. It was a good group and no one was out of control. The free parking in the back is very tight but doable. Rooms were clean and staff helpful. Internet was $4/hr on their computers and wifi reception not good in... More
