      A great place to stay, very close to public transport. Right in the middle of StKilda, close to the beach. Comfortable rooms. Good value for money. Room view wasn't great.

      This place is really clean and well maintained. It's a bit more expensive than other hostels in the area but the dorm rooms and kitchen definitely reflect the price difference!

      I was quite satisfied, but there is no free wifi, no drinks from a liquor store allowed and the kitchen is overcrowded all the time...

      This hostel is a bit pricey (but its australia..) but you get the free breakfast! Good location! Awesome staff! Very clean and the air con is amazing aha ! The four deb dorms (even the 'worst one' which we stayed in apparently (no windows) is awesome!) Non mixed bathrooms on every floor ! Cool bar and tv room! Met some awesome people and had a great time ! You should stay in this hostel in melbourne !!

      From Sydney we flew, at another disgustingly early time, to Melbourne. By the time we left the airport, arrived at our hostel and checked in we still had the whole day ahead of us to explore the popular city! Maps in hand we hopped on a tram but having not quite mastered their routes we ended up at South Melbourne market. This is a really nice …

      So ENDLICH sind wir angekommen. Nach knapp 40 Stunden Anfahrtszeit kann man das auch ruhig mal groß schreiben.

      Am 31. Januar haben wir unsere Reise von Unna aus gestartet und sind dann über Delhi nach Melbourne geflogen.

      Die erste Bahnfahrt und das erste Warten auf den ersten Flieger zum ersten Stop (Delhi), war noch getränkt in …

      As I've come to expect the overnight bus was pretty awful. It was nearly full and everyone had assigned seats, I did however get really lucky as I didn't have anyone sat next to me. Despite that though I didn't get an awful lot of sleep. The bus arrived in Melbourne at just after 8am and I made my way to the hostel which was about a 15 minute walk …

      I arrived in Melbourne a bit wary after my camping excursion. It was a drastic change from the heat to 17km/hr winds. I hid away in my rather crowded hostel not quite ready to put forth the effort required to navigate myself around a major city via google walking maps and public transportation. At this point I've been on the road for about …

      Und wieder bin ich in Melbourne gelandet. Das erste Mal im März war ich für 10 Tage hier, das zweite Mal im Mai für 14 Tage und nun bin ich zum dritten Mal hier. Jede Rückkehr war wie ein Heimkehren, habe ich hier doch so gute Freunde gefunden. Deshalb zieht es mich auch dieses Mal nicht richtig weiter. Ich buche zwar mein …
