This Hostel was the most disgusting place I have ever stayed. There was people sitting around the middle of the hostel outside in absolute filth. I have stayed in a few hostels so I am aware of what to expect but this place was next level! It was so gross! I had actually stayed in this place 6 years ago and it was nothing like this. The rooms where so run down and everything was dirty. The bed was so uncomfortable and we later discovered once we lifted up the 8in thick mattress, that they had put boards between the mattress and bed frame. We woke up to vomit outside our door. I would never recommend this place to anyone. So disappointed!

Booked online, turned up to check- in & the front gate was locked, the office unattended including the phone! I eventually go through to a person that didnt understand english after waiting 30 mins for the phone to be answered. Then to add insult to injury I was told the room was unavailable b/c they double booked. I never received a refund for the $60 I paid & had to sleep in my car over night!

Pros: Nothing!

Cons: See my comment & rating!

From patched hole in doors, missing microwave oven glass carousel,stained carpets,tv remote unusable, blanket instead of top sheet and no bedspread, dirty kitchen, untidy yard, plus other areas. All in all a disaster area. Won’t stay there again and no refunds if you decide not to stay when you see it.

Crackhead central.

I booked at St Kilda but was moved to Victoria street, and so while I it was very apparent that this was a fortunate booking, I won't go into what the St Kilda one appeared, but I'd say to keep looking. In regards to Victoria Street, it was crackhead central, you knew it by looking at it, and while my comfort zone wasn't breached, someone did leave after a single night. I'm not the easiest of people to spook, and for me the $30 a night to just sleep was good, and I wasn't concerned with the crowd 'down stairs'. The people I had a room with were decent, one guy was a little grouchy, but nothing bad. Some beds were enclosed on the top bunk, and were annoying to get in and especially out of. I had to jump down if there was no stool below me, not a high drop, just loud, occasionally. The beds themselves were...not exactly top notch, but this is $30 a night and crackhead central, so while they weren't the best and the one I ended up in 'after' the first couple of nights, was very squeaky to slight movements. I would however recommend you book Dr's appointment and /or an STD screening on your departure..Just in case. Overall, for me it wasn't bad, but I'm able to also handle myself. If you're after cheap, I'd say keep looking, there are other places for the same price, just don't expect to be right inside the city. Though, from what I discovered, the city wasn't where the fun was, anyway. P.S There aren't any lockers.
