    Grunge in great location.
    Property overall seems to be run down. Rooms are very small and dark, look tired and are equipped with second grade furniture. Strong resemblance of a prision cell. Noise factor is distressing and supplied earplugs helped but were a discerning discovery upon entering the room after cgeck in. Location is fantastic. Towels were clean and complementary shower gel and shampoo much appreciated.

    Dont bother unless you are young and carefree
    Dreadful experience. "car parking' is extremely limited and needs to be pre-booked. Our booking was 4 women travelling together, with a note explaining the same- this was not read- even when I booked in they didn't have the courtesy to tell me that we had been split into two rooms (mixed dorms). Never again!

    Couples ... BOOK A PRIVATE ROOM!
    We spent two weeks at base Stkilda and enjoyed our stay! Paid extra for a private double room but was well worth the money, large bed and bathroom and plenty of room for clothing but sadly no wardrobe. The room linen didn't get changed for the whole two weeks which was disappointing but could get clean towels everyday which was great. Excellent location of you want be away from the busy city and a 1minutue walk to beautiful St Kilda beach and the Penguins at the end of the pier. Kitchen was always cleaned but young travellers find it difficult abiding by the "clean up after yourself" rule which is no fault of the staff. Mixed review on the hotel workers, some friendly others not so much! Al round a great time in Melbourne, even if it was a bit chilly!
