Base St Kilda is a spacious and modern backpackers’ hostel located just five minutes from Luna Park and the beach. There are also two stops outside with lines going directly to the centre of Melbourne. Hostelworld guests tell us this hostel has a friendly party atmosphere and helpful staff who provide nightly themes, parties and games in the lively onsite bar. We like that all their rooms are ensuite.
Really good atmosphere but wouldn’t recommend if you don’t want a party hostel. Staff super friendly and helpful. Air con was so good and 8 bed dorm was really spacious. Kitchen was quite small though and the wifi wasn’t great in the rooms. In a good spot in st Kilda, near the skybus and tram stop. About a 90 min walk into the CBD which is quite a nice walk through the park. Would defos stay again
I was on the first floor and so I got to hear the bar all night long. It was nice having the bathroom in the unit, but if you're in an 8 person dorm you'll have to wait to use it some days. I don't drink much so not a great fit for me but if you like the bar scene it will be great for you. Always something going on at night and close to the tram/bus if you want to go out. Kitchen was a good size, but the stove is a pain to use and all the pans are nonstick and worn down so you get to eat teflon.
We offer a lot of great extras, like free pancake nights every Monday and free BBQ nights every Wednesday. Plus, every guest gets a free drink on arrival and every room is ensuite.
We're located a few hundred metres from the iconic St Kilda Beach, and is a stone's throw from the historic Acland Street shopping precinct. At the same time, we are only a short tram ride from the city centre or Chapel Street shopping districts and a 10-minute walk to the Fitzroy Street nightlife district. Personally I love the walk along St Kilda Pier at sunset, where you get the very best spectacular view of the Melbourne City Skyline as well as of the cute St Kilda Penguins on the pier rocks.
I think we present a welcoming environment for guests of all ages, though, being a youth hostel, we do cater to the backpacker market. Having said that, we very regularly have mature-age guests staying with us who very much enjoying their time here in St Kilda.
We are very wheelchair friendly and have an onsite lift as well as rooms which are equipped for special needs guests in both 4 bed rooms and private rooms. Only a handful of these rooms are available so we do need prior notice to ensure availability.
