The room smelled of stinky feet and mold the four days a stayed, the room have very little ventilation and I would wake up feeling sick from the smell. It is cheap which is nice and a fine place if you're spending minimal time in the room but I was so incredibly happy when I checked out knowing I would... More

We booked a private room for 4 days in this hostel from Lastminute.com.au. After a long and tiring drive from Sydney, we had to stay in a 8-share dorm room because the owner said the private room isn't available. They had my email and my phone number and yet no attempt was made to let us know beforehand. As soon... More

Didn't even stay in the end in the hostel. When we showed up with a booking for two people in a four bedroom room , we were told it was too cheap on hotels.com and should be twice the price for two people. Plus told we would have to stay in an eight bedroom dorm! Refused to give a refund... More

DISGUSTING! After sampling many budget backpacker hostels accross the world, this is by far THE WORST accomodation I have ever had the misfortune to spend a night in. Rooms STINK of cigarettes and sweat. (No wonder as one guy walked into the room smoking...) There are dirty plates and cups all over the floor. Bathroom was filthy. When I arrived... More

I had booked into 6 bed dorm but when I arrived into room there was actually only 5... More

Everything in this hostel was horrible, especially the staff they were so unfriendly! The room was smelly and the bathroom was disgusting they didn't cleaned it every day, ask it a few times but they kept telling me they cleaned it. Sorry but who was in that room every day?! WiFi connection was terrible. My advise don't stay here!

Although St Kilda has fantastic shops and cafes and restaurants - even pubs - and the Sunday market is great, the choice of Home Travellers Motel proved to be poor. Overall the standard is pretty bad, with creaking bunk beds (which could be easily fixed with a spanner), lack of good cleaning of toilets (we shouldn't need to ask), and... More

We booked the double room with en suite. Really nice! Spacious, good bed, clean and nice extras like tv, coffee, tea, microwaves, soaps etc. Room for improvement in the shower, heat of the water fluctuates a lot, reception not manned a lot of times but when you ring the bell somebody arrives soon enough. Bit noisy because some people celebrating... More

I stopped by Melbourne for a night on ma trip Sydney to Adelaide and I decided to book a room in Home Travellers Motel for the night.

The rooms are ok if you can overlook the peeling paint, mold, and stained towels. My issue was we went to check in (private room) and were informed there was new ownership so not only was our reservation lost they refused to honor the rate of 75 dollars insisting we now pay 85! The best part was as I explained... More
