The hostel is operated by a very helpful guy called Pat who will answer all questions and look to help you when he can. The hostel has a very homely feel to it as a lot of the tenants are longer term residents. This probably has led the hostel to have a 'lived in look' as it could do they with a renovation. That said its a short stroll to the beach at St Kildas in one direction and a short stroll in the other direction to the MCG. Overall the hostel has plus points but a few negatives are apparent so i would not recommend staying here if you are used to clean modern hostels.
