Be prepared for a pleasant surprise at this busy pub; the rooms upstairs are light, bright, and white, with red accents. They’re clean, modern, and attractive, much more so than you’d expect for somewhere that offers backpacker dorms. The best of the private rooms are the three large studios, which have wonderful views of St. Kilda and the bay. All rooms—even the dorms—have en suite bathrooms. The dorms (six-, eight-, and ten-beds) include female-only dorms and family rooms that sleep four to six people. The huge rooftop bar is very popular, and there’s a nightclub in the basement (which means it can be noisy on weekends and the night before public holidays!).
