Pros - Friendly staff - Great facilities - Good social environment - great location in terms of public location/things to do Cons - Overpriced - The area has it's ups and downs, there are a lot of bums and junkies just around the corner. - Internet was painfully slow and with a crappy 250 MB data cap. Don't think you... More

I spent 3 nights here. Had an awesome time. Rooms and bathrooms very clean. Location was perfect. Free wifi was great. All of the staff, except one, were extremely helpful and friendly. Not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for.

Informed reception but was told temperature could not go any warmer because of global warming etc..etc. If that is the... More

I stayed with Habitat for one night because I had to work nearby and needed a cheap bed to sleep in that included free parking. Habitat is easy to find, staff are very friendly on check in and check out. Car parking is free and secure with a locked gate, actually I felt as though the hostel was very safe... More

Stayed here for 5months in 2013, best hostel I stayed at during my two years in Oz by far. Clean, friendly, tram stop to city right outside, free parking out back, staff were lovely and even remembered me when I returned nearly a year later bless them.

The room was not the room we agreed on, but they did what they could to rectify the issue.The staff are lovely and helpful no matter what our question or issue. Their common area was a good area to meet others, and there was a good size kitchen... More

With the price, free breakfast, free limited wifi and free parking, it’s a great deal! It’s a clean hostel, kitchen, bathroom, room, living room, indoor and outdoor common area are clean. The cheapest dorm is 10 beds, and the air in the room was all good for my stay of 3 nights there. The hostel is kind of too huge... More

Wasn't in Melbourne for very long, have intentions of returning in the new year. I can definitely say if this place has rooms available I know where I will be staying, clean, comfortable, free Wi-Fi, free breakfast, excellent staff and something happening most nights, from free barbecues to trivia nights

Pretty decent. Good activities to get u mixing with other people. Staff are really pleasant and helpful. They do offer cheap drinks at the reception which you can drink in the communal areas as you cant bring in your own alcohol but it tastes a bit flat so your better off breaking the rules and bringing your own! The kitchen... More
