Best place in Melbourne ”

I am a student and lived this place for a long time. I think the best thing here is not only meet friendly people and enjoy convenient environment, but also provide you a valuable experience of local life in Melbourne. Also, thanks Max who give me a lot of help!

Price and Room”

Love it and the price is very affordable. Additionally, the staff is very friendly as you will always feel welcome as soon as you arrive at the place. The room is not too big but comfortable.

Triple Room with Private Bathroom

Great Budget Stay in St Kilda”

Stayed here for two nights in the triple room with a friend. The beds were really comfortable and the room we got was spacious. The reception staff we had contact with were very friendly and helpful. The place itself is really close to a lot of great shops, bars and the beach in St Kilda which is its greatest appeal. The only thing in too keep in mind is that the room could have been cleaner, however for the price you pay and everything else that comes with it, we would both definitely stay there again as it is overall really great value for a short stay :)

Awesome! ”

So easy! Clean rooms, not sure if they did without the night club bc I never hear anything and I stayed on Friday and Saturday night.... Nice staff, clean room... I've been in the hostel and private rooms... Hostels in general are not for me... But it was what is expected from a hostel... The private rooms are surprisingly nice, very clean and tidy.... Summer house hands down has the nicest private rooms out of any local backpackers place :-) def recommend !

well its a nice place to stay . very helpful staff”

Nice hostel . A little far from the CBD . But excesible by Trams . The skybus from the airport is very expensive. About >_<AUD $ 19. Alternatively you may take the public bus No. 901 from Terminal 4 carpark Ground floor to Broad meadows train station which is a 15 minute drive . From there take the train to Flinders Street station which is a 40 minute journey and from there take Tram No. 16 to St Kilda's tell the driver you need to alight at Barkly street. And it stops near the traffic light junction at Barkly Street. Just turn left at the traffic light along Barkly Street walk straight along Barkly Street, about 200 meters and at the first traffic light junction , Summer House is at the corner on the left . It costs only about AUD $6.00. If you want to save . :-) Nice place to stay. You can cook your own food . They have all the facilities like stoves, microwaves , ovens, storage fridges and utensils and cutlery. Enjoy the stay!
