I stayed here for nearly 3 month and still aren't sure of what I thought. It sometimes seemed very nice but then other times I hated it. The first thing I noticed is that it seemed very cliquey. A lot of the longtermers seem to be good friends and not always open to talking to new people, unless you smoke... More

Hi Elizabeth, Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. I want to address some of your comments: Regarding the room configuration ie the 5 bed dorm..we too wish we could have 6 beds in this room, however council regulations stipulate that particular room size has a maximum of 5! Seems crazy to us too, but the rules... More

We stayed here as it had good reviews, was not too expensive, and not many places had space, although it is quite pricey for a hostel. It is very close to St Kilda beach which was a good area to stay in and close to a tram stop into the centre of Melbourne. The staff were very friendly and helpful... More

As a teacher looking for good value but secure accommodation for students I found Habitat HQ was great for an overnight stop. Rooms were clean and comfortable and having their own bathrooms meant students didn't have to wander around the corridors in the evenings. Students did say that the bunk beds were 'noisy' whenever anyone rolled in bed. The private... More

A nice hostel with friendly staff and events most evenings. No outside drinks though and beer was abit pricey. Other than that, clean and worth the price. Free morning breakfast and tea and coffee all day.

We needed a bed and a bathroom. Both were comfortable and clean. Can be noisey but it's a hostel; its to be expected. The bed was actually really comfortable. The blinds didn't quite block out all the light though.

After a hellish week in Base Hostel down the road, a friend of ours recommended Habitat HQ. We booked a week in a 4 person dorm and it was excellent. The staff are friendly, the rooms clean and they have more than enough bathrooms / showers on every floor. They have a large TV room, pool table and their own... More

I frequently have to visit Melbourne, Fed up with expensive hotels with poor service. Tried Habitat H Q and found it perfect for my circumstances. I booked online, basically due to the price, as I am an older person, (pensioner) I was hesitant booking a back packers place as I believed it would be full of noisy young people. But... More

Stayed at Habitat for just a couple of nights on weekend visit and found it to be better than I had expected. There were a few of us that booked at the same time so all ended up in a four room dorm which had an ensuite which adds that little bit of convenience, particularly when enjoying the local area...
