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. St. Kilda is a very nice location to stay. The only negative thing I remember was the very uncomfortable sofa in the lounge and the mattress, both for the bedsprings: Each... More

A bit of a walk from the main St Kilda shops, beach, and Luna Park. However, close to trams that run regularly into the CBD during the week, less frequently on the weekend. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Very clean. Environmentally conscientious. Great wifi service on premise included with stay. A HUGE plus for any Aussie accommodation where internet access...

Most uncomfortable sleep I have had in months! After camping for the last 2 months, I thought that I would treat myself to a sleep indoors. The plastic, piss guarded mattress was so uncomfortable that I preferred the floor to it. If you like sleeping on something that closely resemble the feel of a hammock made of metal fencing wrapped... More

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
