    Modern appearance ”

    Pros - location, very cheap eats and drinks at the bar downstairs, stylish bathrooms. The Estonian receptionist is very friendly. Cons - No recycling. 1 tiny & poorly maintained kitchen. When cleaners deep clean the room it was very poorly done, the hostel is new-looking so they can get away with not cleaning it well and it still looking relatively clean. Until time catches up to the facilities. Their idea of cleaning a bathroom was quickly wiping the floor with a mop. The people that would come in to inspect the cleaning would walk in, open the blinds, glance at the bathroom and leave. They didnt check under the beds, in the lockers, around the toilet or the walls in showers. Every is international including the receptionists, seems like most of the employees are doing the bare minimum. The english girl that runs the events isnt well trained on the reception work.

    Very good and cheap hostel. Close to the tram stop but a little bit far from CBD. Staff were friendly and nice. There are the storage room and common room which you can enjoy staying for watching movie and leave your luggage there. And there is elevator!!! However there is no line that I can dry my clothes. A bit expensive for washing machine and dryer.

    well its a nice place to stay . very helpful staff”

    Nice hostel . A little far from the CBD . But excesible by Trams . The skybus from the airport is very expensive. About >_<AUD $ 19. Alternatively you may take the public bus No. 901 from Terminal 4 carpark Ground floor to Broad meadows train station which is a 15 minute drive . From there take the train to Flinders Street station which is a 40 minute journey and from there take Tram No. 16 to St Kilda's tell the driver you need to alight at Barkly street. And it stops near the traffic light junction at Barkly Street. Just turn left at the traffic light along Barkly Street walk straight along Barkly Street, about 200 meters and at the first traffic light junction , Summer House is at the corner on the left . It costs only about AUD $6.00. If you want to save . :-) Nice place to stay. You can cook your own food . They have all the facilities like stoves, microwaves , ovens, storage fridges and utensils and cutlery. Enjoy the stay!

    Very good”

    My friend and I stayed in the private twin room. We were given a room that could actually fit 3 people, one of the beds was queen size. As we had our own bathroom, it was very convenient for us. It was relatively clean as well. We were just a little confused about the breakfast arrangement (we weren't sure which of the food belonged to the property, and which belonged to the other residents). We decided not to grab any in the end. The one big minus would be the noise from the party at night, which could well last until after midnight. This is probably not the place for people who are looking for a quiet evening after a long day out exploring Melbourne.

I've been in the hostel and private rooms... Hostels in general are not for me... But it was what is expected from a hostel... The private rooms are surprisingly nice, very clean and tidy.... Summer house hands down has the nicest private rooms out of any local backpackers place :-) def recommend !
