We booked 2 tripple rooms for 4 nights there. The room we stayed has stale and very unpleasant smell. Looks like the bedsheet is not changed as it did not smell fresh. The wall there is no sound proof. The shower rooms there only 1 with hot water. The rest are cold water. Very noisy! You could hear people open...

Australian, stayed 5-6 times from countryside, most economic priced singlerooms, while working 2 days a week in Melbourne. Location good (for work), near Botanical gardens, No. 8 tram bw city and Toorak, looks old wordly and charming, single rooms ok'ish, bathrooms average (often long walk). My real issue was bed bugs once, and "attitude" of manager/owner (maybe tired of hospitality...

Was a bit worried about staying at the hostel after reading some of the reviews and if you are looking for a flashy hostel with all the trimmings then this isn't the one for you. If however, you are looking for a hostel with a bit of charm and character then this is it. Stayed 2 nights and the free...

St Arnauds looks like a quaint little guesthouse brimming with character, warmth and relaxation..it is NOT..arriving to rude receptionist, english girl with all the charisma of a wooden chair and a face like a smacked butt, you are given your map of the hotel without the curtsy, infact you'd be lucky if she maked eye contact, shuffled into a single...

This hotel is old and smells old. My room however was ok. It was small but light and had a fridge. The bed was very soft and lumpy and not comfortable at all. They need too get new mattresses. The tram goes right by the window but it stops around midnight so it didn't disturb my sleep. The free breakfast...

We loved this place. Bathrooms could have been better but the double bed was a real luxury. If we were to go back to Melbourne - we would stay at the St Arnaud - for sure!!

Ripoff and a dump. My partner was given the distinct impression that the accommodation included a bathroom. The bathroom was shared and it was filthy. The room was cold and bare. The bed was lumpy and cold. I wouldn't board my dog there. On top of all that, we booked an airport transfer through their website. Upon receiving no confirmation...

You know that feeling you get when something goes wrong? That sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach? That's the feeling you get when you arrive at the St. Arnaud. And it never leaves you for the whole time you're there. We'd read some poor reviews before booking and had desperately tried to get accomodation elsewhere but as it...

My wife and I booked a couple of days here and it is the worst accomodation I have ever seen. The rooms are small and smelly, the bed was uncomfortable. The bathrooms are from the 18th century and were not even on the same level as the room. We tried to cancel the second night, but they would not refund....

I stayed in St Arnaud Guest house for 8 days in a single room on may 2010. General speaking, the location of this hostel is the best feature of that. Close to some shops and walking distance to tram station. However, being close to tram station brings about some drawbacks which is being noisy most of the time. At midnight,...
