Unfortunately me and the girlfriend could only stay in this hostel for 2 nights as we had to leave for Sydney because this hostel was top notch! Everything was so clean and organised, the staff were great and everything had such a friendly and welcoming vibe to it! FYI we stayed in a 6 bed dorm.

I had a great experience at Habitat HQ, everything just felt easy there when I was very jet-lagged. And the bathrooms are lush. It’s not a party hostel but it’s definitely not a quiet hostel for the 9-5 WHV pack. Sociable but laid back – happy medium. This was perfect for a jet-lagged girl just trying to be awake. No-one...

Spent 9 nights here in early January, can't complain at all. Very decent facilities for a hostel: good wifi, ample sized/equipped kitchen, great social areas, tidy rooms, brilliant showers and very social garden area. Tram across the street gets you into the CBD in 20 mins and you are only a 10 minute walk to the beach at St Kilda.... More

We had spent 4 nights in Central Melbourne and decided that we wanted a change of scenery and to move more towards St.Kilda and the beach! This place isn't really near anything...

We stayed in one of the private rooms for one night. We chose the hostel as it had a private car park and was outside of the city centre. The room was a good size and had tea/coffee making facilities, a TV and a fridge which we thought was good for a hostel. It was pretty clean but not to... More

This hostel is great. It's quieter than base but with a lot going on if you want to join. Incredibly clean and quiet and just 10 mins into town.good outside area, nice clean kitchen with a good amount of facilities and pots and pans. Fridges are a bit tight but that's the same everywhere. I'm 28 so wasn't really looking... More

After a terrible experience of a hostel I'm Sydney, I was wary of other hostels. But the staff were so friendly and helpful I immediatly liked it here. With free wifi and breakfast and a trip out to see the Penguins, you get great value for money. It's clean, friendly and in a great location, I recommend anyone staying here,... More

Very friendly atmosphere. Very nice staff. Slept in a female 6 bed dorm with bathroom ensuite. Clean rooms. Airconditioning worked well. Big lockers under the beds. Wallsockets for everyone.
