    Super friendly and good facilities!”

    On that booking day ( Thursday) was free BBQ. It held the special event, Summer christmas. Nice food and cakes are all free and decorated nice christmas stuff in the common area. There is a kiosk in common area. So you can get snacks and drinks including alcohol. But it wasn't noisy at all at night. It's bit far from St. Kilda beach for 20mins on foot. But it's OK because the accommodation is nice. To city, you can take a tram in front of the hotel. アジア人は私ひとりでしたが、フレンドリーな人ばかりで楽しめます。水回りも充分綺麗でした :)

    Great Hostel with super friendly staff.”

    Loved this hostel. Nice clean rooms and very friendly staff. Close to transport which is right in front of the facility. Nightly activities which include a Barbeque. Kitchen does get busy but staff make sure the place is fairly clean. Lovely Manager and gorgeous puppy which is the Hostel’s Mascot.

    Near tram to city. Near the beach, can walk only 15 minutes. Facilities are all around the lobbies. A lot of toilets and very clean. The kitchen is so big. It's suitable for workers and backpackers.

    I absolutely loved this place!”

    Great vibe. Nice people.. the only thing is that the rugs are absolutely filthy and I saw black mold on my ceiling. They should just rip up the carpet and polish the cement floors. It's cheaper and easier to clean.

    Didn't realise it was back pack accommodation when I booked but as we had a private room all was fine. Room was small but fine for an o/ n stay. No soap in bath to wash hands !? Good value for money for a one night stay.

    Clean, big room, 24 hours receptionist

    Clean hotel, big room, 24 hour reception, friendly and helpful. Common room is always crowded, perfect for who likes socializing. But you have to ride tram to the city center about 20 minutes, should cost 4 to 7.6 AUD. If you want to save transport costs, you should find hotel near the city center. So you can take advantage of free city circle tram.
