We stayed at habitat for about ten days and had such a good time. The staff day and night are amazing, so friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice, we moved once to a bigger dorm and it was clean and well maintained. Location is perfect, five minutes walk to town but away from all the noise, my favourite part... More

We were 3 people and stayed in a 4 bedroom. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom were clean. The kitchen was big and is shared by all guests. There is also free parking for guests behind the building.

Stayed in a private room en-suite. Spotlessly clean, spacious and quiet. Free tea and coffee in the room which was great! Staff are extremely helpful and informative. Loved the location, tram outside the door to get to and from the city and a short walk to St Kilda's beach with all the shops, bars and restaurants at your finger tips.... More

I stayed in the hostel from early/mid September for 2 months. Originally booked for a week but met so many amazing people from all over the world and was having a great time so didn't want to leave. Of course being a hostel the quality of sleep can vary when you're sharing a room with 9 other people and yes... More

I stayed here last week and was delighted by the amenities as well as the helpfulness and friendliness of staff and other travelers. I particularly liked having an ensuite for our dorm of six. I also liked the spacious kitchen, the courtyard and lots of spaces downstairs. Nice to have the tv tucked away in a tv room. The recycling... More

No doubt, it is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed. Good kitchen & common areas, provide fine opportunity to mingle & make new friends. A tram station is just outside of the hostel, so well linked to the city. Would recommend this place.
