The pictures are incredibly deceiving. It's not clean at all, there is clutter everywhere & the steps look like they are going to collapse. The hangout areas are interesting however the only time I was in the hostel was to sleep because I couldn't stand being there. Many people who were staying there had been for months. It was more...

We had a lovely stay at private Bangalore outside. Lots of greens and open and free atmosphere. Nice front desk staff was also helpful. Easy access to busy street, market and st kilda beach. There was a kitchen, which was kept clean and organized. Nice garden and outside lounge.

I am shocked at the bad reviews. I think people who leave scathing reviews maybe do not know themselves as people to know who they are as travelers. These people pursue travelling with the expectation that everything should be perfectly to THEIR liking. It was the expectation that made the place horrible. This place is not at all horrible. It...

Do not stay here even if it's your last option! Myself and boyfriend stayed here thinking it was a homely, welcoming place however we discovered the complete opposite on the first night. We were in a bedroom that's window was next to the outside bins so the windows weren't allowed to be opened because of the flys and the smell...

Do not visit this place under any circumstances. Do not waste your money. Horrible is an understatement. There are long termers staying there that bum around all day. Even the private rooms are awful. I live quite close to there now and it looks like a complete dump on the outside. Never again.

This hostel is the best one I have stayed in since travelling in Australia.

Not for the faint of heart - not exactly clean but what great long term hostel is? Great social scene. Tiny kitchen though, is impossible to cook at 5-6pm so change your eating schedule. Awesome location 10 mins from Chapel St. Super party party, mostly just on weekends though. Very fun sometimes sloppy. You'll meet some really neat people. Good...
