Really good location in St Kilda, on site bar if you want to drink/party at the hostel
They didn't clean our bathroom for days and there was mould growing and no bathroom mat so it was gross. Bar toilets didn't even have seats! My bed sheets also looked dirty with make up on them.... Didn't see any shared areas to chill and could hear loud music from rooms.
It fitted our budget and we were all able to stay in the same room.
If you are after a nightclub with bedrooms this is the perfect place to stay. Unfortunately we were not. Music went on till well after 2am every morning and during multiple nights we were woken by shouts and screams outside our room. Car park is obviously little used for parking cars and very tight to get into, however it is secure.
the room is clean
there's a bar on the ground, so at night always hear the noises and sometimes the shouting. even in the midnight, somebodies will knock the door, it's scaring.
The sanctuary for girls it was pretty good, clean, new and comfortable. Huge, organized and clean kitchen. It is big backpaker outside the centre,I enjoyed my mornings walking in St. Kilda, the area is calm and with many cutes cafes and restaurants.
The staff was not helpful, they looked like being annoyed to answer questions, just the guy at night was nice. Expensive internet Noisy bar downstairs
Great location and easy to check in.
The hostle has a tanoide on the corridor which announces what's going on in the bar on each corridor - very annoying and seemed quite desperate for customers!
Horrible fluffy mould growths on the fan above shower, bathroom very unclean.
Cliquey staff always trying to sell you something. If you like magaluf/ benidorm..you will live this hostel
Friendly service and good location, nothing is too much trouble.
Could hear the disco on the ground floor in the dorms at night.
Really close to trams
I stayed for 2 nights and I couldn't sleep until 2am as they had the music super load Room n bathrooms were small, definitely not value for money
Stayed in en suite double room, plenty of privacy with the bonus of hostel pricing. Lovely location. Plenty of trams into Melbourne.
Very noisy at night. Bar plays music till 3am at weekends. Noisy neighbours. Sadly the usual for hostel guests.
close to everywhere I needed to be. comfortable room nice to have balcony
noisy screaming girls next door but they went out again if had been sharing with someone bathroom would have been claustrophobic as would have needed to shut door
I was greeted by Josie at reception, who was lovely and made me feel welcome and at ease immediately. She and other members of the staff were super helpful over the course of my stay. Can't beat the location, and there was always some kind of event going on where it was easy to get to know other travellers. All in all, a great experience.
Beds were comfy.
We had very noisy group of people in our room..we were all happy for a good but they were drinking, yelling into the night, and had been smoking in the bathroon. Staff were very rude and often could not be bothered, and were just sitting around chatting to each other. There were ridiculous announcements made throughout the day over the tanoy which we hated- we wanted to do our own thing and this often distrubed us- if we wanted to know, we'd ask. Club downstairs was soo loud, kitchen was absolutely disgusting, and on more than one occassion there was a pile of vomit outside the hostel. The room was freezing cold, with windows that held no warmth to the room. Under the beds were vile with weeks worth of old food/rubbish just left there. When we first arrived in the room, our sheets (which had been changed) had stains on them. When the cleaners came in, they barely hoovered the room, so much so to the point my friend actually took the hoover and did it himself. I was very disappointed as I expect much more from Base,- normally I am a fan but this was not only the worst Base I had been in, but the worst hostel in Australia.
Clean room, new furniture and building. Reception 24h
Noisy and strong smell of cigarettes
The Price Rates were good, Room was clean.Close to Shops, Staff were friendly.
Loud Music all night till 4am, other guests had no respect, yelling & screaming, singing at 4 in the morning with no regard for other guests trying to sleep. Banging doors.
It was very secure
There is bar inside
Convenient to certain places..
Water boiler,freeze wifi while towel also dont have..very bad in
Only stayed one night but had no problems, staff where friendly and helpful, would stay again :)
Keys don't work properly, smelly carpets, they charge you for everything, dont let you sleep until late if you want to, last room had a terrible shower wich i could not stick to the wall...and is not cheap
Cleanliness Comfort Room size Smell
Really great for a backpackers. We stayed in a private room and it was much nicer than I expected. The bed there was far more comfortable than my own! There were also great food and drink specials.
It didn't bother me personally because I don't get to sleep until 4am most days anyway, but the music from downstairs did last until around 1 or 2am. However, earplugs were provided in the room which I thought was great.
Exemplar in customer service. Very engaging with clientele. Extremely helpful and every request handled with care and respect.
Bit noisy, but as it's a hostel it kind of comes with the territory!
The staff were great, friendly, informative. The room was clean (the shower wasnt as clean as it could have been but it was a wall that had stains on it). Perfect location!!
I know its a hostel however I have never stayed anywhere with music blarring until 3am We paid $250 for our room, we were not in a cheaper shared dorm yet we were unable to sleep due to the music. I know it was a saturday night and people like to party. However some guest may have wanted to sleep (which we did).
