Our room is clean and tidy. Only complaint not enough fridges for occupants. Highly recommend to fellow backpackers great place to meet new people :)

I have seen a few hostels by now in melbourne and the Pint fOn Punt ist the one with the most famliar atmosphere. The kitchen and bathrooms are a little bit worn out but I didn´t care about that much. I wanted to go there again but unfortunately they were completely full. So it is the best to book early!

Absolutely great place to stay, very clean and lovely staff. A bar attached to the hostel that is such good fun. Ian the bar man was so helpful and welcoming on arrival and assisted me in any issues I had at the time. I was slightly stressed on arrival and he made me feel at ease. Excellent staff. ♌️

Cheap and good hostel. Location is great, close to Albert park and St Kilda and not too far away from central Melbourne. Also has a nice pub on the bottom floor. A great place to stay if you're on a budget.

I lived in a six bed dorm here for two months. The room was basic with limited plug sockets and limited cleanliness. The common has a TV and sofas which is sweet for socialising and drinking goon. A balcony leads out of the common room which is also a great place to socialize. The kitchen is very limited as is... More
