Cozy environment with a close-knit groups of backpackers.
There aren't enough toilets or showers, if there was a toilet open Id use it right away in case they were all occupied later.
Cheap price and good location. Off street parking also available.
Unclean and messy facilities. It appears the bathrooms and kitchen are rarely cleaned. The 10 bed dorm room (Room 5)appeared to be be used by the backpackers who were working as staff and it was really messy with clothes and personal belongings everywhere. 10-bed dorm room also lets in heaps of the street noise making it very hard to sleep if you have a bed next to the window. I would recommend going for the 8 bed dorm room as its much less noisy and one less flight of stairs.
The common room was comfortable as well as having a bathroom attached to the dorm.
Other guests were very loud and at times invasive. Shower next to the dorm was leaking keeping me up at night. It was completely unclear whether some people were staff or guests.
The hostel is located near a free parking street and not far from St Kilda beach and center. Hopefully my roomates were really cool and respectful, it made me stay a bit longer but next time I'll definitely pay a bit more and go elsewhere. The staff was nice and helpful.
I never had such an uncomfortable bed before! I had to put the extra blanket under me to be able to sleep. The room had no window and smelled really bad. The whole hostel smells like fried chicken as it's next door to a fast food. Showers/toilets were disgusting most of the time with only one cleaning per day and not enough facilities for everyone.
The bedroom is clean The shared bathroom is inside the bedroom
The unpleasent smell from chicken restaurant next door The kitchen is a little bit messy
