Good base for getting into Melbourne. Friendly helpful young ladies on reception desk.
I had a private room with enjoy quite shower room. The clothes hanging space was filled with a chair holding a try with kettle and tea and coffee sachets. Naturally I had to move this out to hang my clothes up. I did request a small table if they had one but none was forthcoming. I think a small table is essential for safety for using the kettle as it was not very secure on a slopeing chair and leaves hostel open to legal proceedings for injury.
Dirty kitchen, stuffy rooms.
Most of the staff are very friendly and it's a great place to make new friends.
I like the place ...coz it is easy to go to the city...by tram.. I like the events that Habitat HQ gave to the customers every day is different event..how lovely but..please ..let me know... did you see my glasses ..? coz I remembered that I'd forgotten to take my glasses..when check out And when I remembered that...my position had been in Canberra..again but..it's never mind..if my glasses was not in your hotel maybe..I did my mistakes at any place... I'm sorry to ask about that... really..I'd just..made sure .. no problemo Now..I'm n my daughter are in Indonesia again... we just arrived last night
Just... about the towel.. that the hotel only prepared the new towel after 4 nights..staying for me... bcause I always..use e new and clean towel...every day is changing so that's why..every morning..I go to laundry to wash all towels..that we used but..never mind... no worries about that
Good location, clean, friendly staff, good facilities.
good kitchen facilities, clean bathroom,bedding was all good
access and signage if travelling by car...access to building if travelling by car...
Private room with ensuite was really nice and despite being on main road and in backpacker hostel was very quiet. Really easy to get to with tram stop right outside. Free wifi and luggage storage for a day came in handy too!
Kitchen/dining area quite busy/crowded.
we came from Tas a little exhausted to spend the 2 last days of our 6 weeks vacations and expected to rest and enjoy the buoyant city, we've found a haven as room and highly effective-smiley staff helping in all our needs. we're now back in our Provence and already planning next down under summer visit, staying much longer and on at least 2 periods within our trip thanks to all we've been encountering, especially the fellow from the reception who went to our room to catch and release outside the huge hairy spider in the window curtain! gina & claude
the only little thing has been the last night door slamming from our neibourgh, insignificant may it seems...says a lot for us... may travelers be chatted about it at check-in ?
Very chilled out and friendly. We complained about the bed - it was very uncomfortable. And the complaint was dealt with very well. Will be very happy to stay again.
I stayed 4 nights at Habitat with a friend. The hostel was okey, I liked that the rooms were cleaned and that you got Wifi for free!
I didn't like the kitchen, it was big and messy. Lack of pans etc. It was also dirty and the fridges were totally full the whole time. The location was bad,it took almost 40 min to the CBD and it wasn't that close to St. Kilda Beach as I thought. I recommend to stay in CBD or closer to St Kilda Beach, Habitat is kind of in between.
We didn't realise this was backpacker style of accomodation. So it was a bit of a shock when we arrived. However we were happy with the cleanliness and the staff were helpfully.
The hostel had a great kitchen area for all guests to use. There were a lot of appliances that could be used and it was easy to make your own food while staying at the hostel.
Both nights that I stayed there my roomates came home around 4am, making a lot of noise and turning on lights. Although they were not able to smoke in the room because it was non-smoking, they would go out and smoke, bringing the scent back into the room. It was difficult to get a good night's sleep. If there were separated dorms for older guests or guests who needed to wake up early and work as well as dorms for the "party crowd" it might have made my stay better.
Good locations, backpackers minded.
Many people staying over for a long period of time, so not always easy to interact. Needs more frequent cleaning of bathrooms and deep cleaning of rooms. They should put a ban on carpets in rooms, that is disgusting!
Very good rooms, very quiet
It was an excellent location, the staff were nice and the room/ hostel was very safe. We had a double private room and it was very quiet which was good as we had not been looking for the backpacking scene but had actually only stayed due to location and have just relocated to Aus so price was reasonable as we will be a few weeks before we find a rental. No spiders :)
The bed covers were washed out and didn't feel very nice to sleep in but the rest of the room was clean. The room didn't have a safe which was not ideal for us as we has things we had brought over which were quite expensive and special to us and we didn't have that peace of mind when we were going out but the room felt safe which was good. We did ask reception but I think we were misunderstood (strong scottish accent) as we were told yes the room is very safe the windows have to wind open...lol
