St Kilda is half an hr bus ride from Melbourne, this is a nice place to stay and meet up with fellow travellers and exchage ideas..The place is well managed and maintained..We enjoyed our two nites stay, though we found we are the only senior couple above 65, staying...most of the guests are youths ..

I stayed 2 nights at Habitat HQ. It was not bad :). Only the kitchen was really dirty :(... And breakfast was included, but there barely was a breakfast. The rooms were nice though. Especially the separate bathroom was a plus.

The staff were so friendly and welcoming on my arrival. One of the things that has annoyed me most in Oz is having to pay extra for everything, not so in Habitat, FREE wifi, free breakfast, free tea and coffee and my personal favourite not having to muck about renting dishes. The kitchen was immaculate and so orderly I was... More

What a pleasant surprise this place turned out to be. As more senior citizens we had anticipated a "Nana and Grandad have arrived" feel to this hostel type accommodation. The staff were so friendly and helpful even showing me where I had gone wrong attempting to access the internet without so much as a smirk. OK there was a lot... More

I stayed 6 nights at Habitat Hq, the hostel was all in all nice and worked well for its purpose. I stayed in a dorm for 6 pers, and it must have been the smallest room in the hostel, nice and cosy though. The only problem was the lack of space for the suitcases, after everybody had their luggage there,... More

Habitat HQ was a nice place to stay, perfectly located near St Kilda and not too far away from the beach. I had booked a private room and it's value was outstanding. For it's price ($100ish) we got the exact same thing as a private hotel in the CBD (usually round the $180 mark). Private en-suite, T.V, tea coffee making... More
