There's really nothing that I could complain about during my 2 weeks here. I am currently travelling Australia with my girlfriend and we've already seen a couple of Hostels here and this is definitely the best. The common room is really big and has a pool-table, several couches and a big flatscreen.
Due to the hostel program like Cheese & Wine Night or free BBQ the common room usually fills with people and you're to get to know each other.
Also the room itself was really nice. We stayed in a 5-Bed dorm, beds were really comfortable and the room was clean and quite big compared to other hostels.
Next point is the free pancake breakfast: The pankcakes are always delicious but you sometimes need to wait a couple of minutes to get you next as there are usally about 6 to 10 people at the table.
I agree that the Ritz is a party hostel, but what else would you expect from a hostel in St.Kilda? And although most of the backpackers start partying in the common room, you are usually able to sleep as the room is:
1. Far away from the most bedroom
2. Closed at 12:30am
So if you don't have a problem with partying and loud music from time to time, this is the best choice for you in Melbourne.
