“Love it!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

Love this place, people are all so cool. Pat is awesome. First hostel I stayed in australia and I love it. Couldn't ask for a better group of people. Right next to chapel street, tram and train stop and only up the road to st kilda. Best decision I made staying here.

I loved my stay at the Lord's Lodge. The owner and receptionists are very friendly and helpful. A lot of long-term backpackers stay here and they are all wonderful characters. It's a bit run down but it makes it quaint. Quite clean. Can be loud on weekends but weekdays it's nice and quiet. Beds are fine, pillows kind of suck. All in all, a great place.

This hostel is fun and friendly with great staff who will help you out whenever you need it. Great for long term backpackers in a perfect location if you're looking for good nightlife and to find work.

This place is a real dive. It stinks of teenage boys who don't wash and when you see the boys that live there (yes, live) the smell all of a sudden makes sense. The carpet is dank and matted, the decor peeling off. The bathroom are bleak and god knows when everything was last cleaned. The mattress is so thin I could feel the actual bunk through it. The rooms are a tip due to the long term residents moving all their stuff in, the fridge in the room is grimey. I spotted 3 cockroaches and the bin (which was full of scrunched up tissues) absolutely stank and looked like it hadn't been emptied for weeks. This is a party hostel for people under 23 who like to drink and smoke weed. Don't expect any of them to talk to you unless you are the same as them. Pat, the manager is a gem and really enthusiastic, he is way too good for that place.

Room Tip: The one picture they show of a room looks a whole lot nicer than my room and the one next to it. It...

Pat was very kind and helpful. The other guests staying there were also wonderful and welcoming. Most of them seemed to be there long-term and had no complaints. The building had an old charm to it. I liked the open courtyard in back. It was also a great value.

Front door always open so anyone can get in. The room I was in had no lock on the door, nowhere secure to leave my valuables. Dirty bathrooms and lounge areas. Long termers stated that they could not be bothered with saying hello to anyone new, very cold unfriendly welcomes. Overheard a long termer say that her stuff had been stolen due to the fact a dealer lived on site and many random people 'picking up' wandered in and out of the hostel. The pictures on their website are very misleading. Do not stay here.

Room Tip: only stay if you don't care about your belongings.

I got recommended by lots of people to stay here because they loved it so much. And it certainly has some flair. The people who work there are very helpful. And every night there is something! Like wine night, free sangria etc. And everyone hangs outside to talk, smoke and have a drink. It seems to me lots of people stay there for longer, so you feel you enter a group of friends.
