Even though I am an older traveler compared to the "children" that fill up the spaces there (as in over 60), I am always welcomed with a big smile and no request I make is too much trouble for the staff. Habitat HQ is in an excellent position for exploring the city as it is on the tram line or... More

The services provided were excellent - friendly receptionists, strong wifi connection, free access to the kitchen and clean room. The family room is just nice for four people and the en suite bathroom is clean. HabitatHQ also provided with a car park area which can be accessed anytime (with password given). It is also located at the strategic area -... More

Habitat HQ is located in St Kilda and is walking distance to a huge number of amazing St Kilda haunts and eateries. There are trams to the city outside the door and a handy bus back to the airport which can be prebooked. We chose to stay there so we could walk to a gig at the Palais and not... More

We were attending a 2 day weekend conference and needed 2 nights accommodation with car parking. We opted for budget accommodation due to the limited time spent in the property. Habitat HQ far exceeded our expectations! As soon as we walked in we were greeted by friendly and attentive reception staff. Our car was parked on premises in a secure... More

Bedsheets were covered in hair and clearly not changed but staff were helpful to sort out the problem. However we still kept finding more hair on the 'clean' sheets. Kitchen was well equipped and the free breakfast (cereal and toast) was a good start to the day. Hostel was close to tram station and takes 20min to the CBD.

Thank you for your review. I am pleased to read that overall you had an enjoyable stay, however I cannot apologize enough to you for finding hair on your sheets. It is unacceptable and not to our usual high standards. I have spoken to our housekeeping team members as well as the company that we contract out the cleaning and... More

Really good, clean hostel with rooms that resemble hotels! Very friendly and social but it's soooo peaceful and quiet when you are trying to sleep as the rooms and doors are vertically sound proof which makes for a great nights sleep, hence why I'm still here 2months later!!
