          A really social and fun hostel- easy to make friends and the staff are really helpful and nice. The themed nights are wicked- especially Boozy Bingo on Mondays. Ballsack on the pole on Saturday in particular was a beautiful sight to behold.

          I have booked to stay in the sanctuary room ... Wanted to check are there hair dryers, straighteners, toiletries , towels and linen free of charge ? Am only in Melbourne for 3 nights and want to pack minimum stuff from uk. Also I know you pick up from the airport, but do you do drop offs as well. Lastly in one if the reviews a girl mentioned free champagne in this room ... Is that something you normally do? Thanks for your help , kelly
