The bedroom was sufficient but there was a bit of unnecessary furniture that cluttered the room. The showers didn’t hold their temperature at all and there was nowhere to get changed except for in the shower itself, which didn’t lock. Overall it was fine for our holiday as we didn’t spend much time there.

Thanks for your review, every room has a desk per guest to allow for Laptop use or eating meals in their rooms. We were unaware about the showers not holding temperature and will rectify this in the coming week. We are glad you enjoyed South Yarra Hostel overall and wish you an enjoyable remainder of your Australia Vacation

I booked to stay in dorm and it was upgraded to double room since the dorm was full and I didn't need to pay more charges. I really thank for it.

Location and facilities are good. Property doesn't provide a towel as standard and there is no one at reception outside of standard business hours.

Thank you for leaving a nice review. Towels are provided upon request and at no extra charge unlike other Hostels. Reception hours are stated upon booking and we are contactable at all times out of regular hours. We believe that providing our guests with more of a home than a hostel feel makes South Yarra Hostel different and more welcoming.
