3 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago NEW

The bathrooms and toilets are kept pretty clean which is always a bonus. The kitchen is big but not big enough for all the people there! Also having only 2 stove tops working for the 4 weeks I stayed wasn't great, thought something would've been done in that time. There was often not any cups or bowls to use because... More

The staff are quite friendly and some even smile and talk with you if you've been there long enough. I'd say its a moderately cliquey hostel so make sure your face fits and up for a lot of generally quite random bants with folks. Also you cant bring your mates in from outside which is a bit of a bummer.... More

I couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. All the staff are so lovely and have a sense of humour. The night staff are especially amazing. Such a CLEAN hostel, I loved my ensuite dorm room with view of the garden. Appreciate their recycling, composting and bee-keeping initiatives. Loved the daily events especially the trivia night. While I was... More

I've stayed here a few times now it's a great place with modern facilities, good atmosphere and friendly staff! They are always very helpful! Thanks again for a great stay! Free breakfast is simple but you have to get in early to get it! Close to St Kilda beach and one team ride to the city, perfect if you don't... More

Visited my friends who were travelling staying here so I joined. I booked a private room with en suite and it was lovely, clean and really decent price! The people here are amazing with a very relaxed vibe. Bit out of the way of the city but only a 20min tram ride at most. Would defo recommend for backpackers!

The hostel was very clean, and a very warm welcome. We arrived after a 12 hour bus ride from Sydney at around 9am in the morning. At that time we weren't allowed to check in, but the reception staff gave us the use of all the facilities which was very convenient. The room was spacious and clean, and lockers were... More

This hostel is in a great location. It was very clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms have ensuite bathrooms which were also very clean. The hostel has a bar so it is very easy to meet people there. They also have something going on every night.
