Located in the heart of St Kilda, Selina sits in prime position on Melbourne’s stylish seaside retreat. Just footsteps from an eclectic dining scene and boho boutiques, walk around the waterfront, or head to the beach and experience the constant buzzing hive of activity. Explore the great outdoors at the nearby Royal Botanic Gardens or Albert Park, watch the swans and rowers glide across the lake, or browse hand-crafted treasures at St Kilda’s famous Sunday markets. Whether you love or loathe rollercoasters, the Luna Park is a heritage-listed theme park and a must-visit local icon, and while you’re in the area, check out the adorable penguins at the end of St. Kilda Pier and try not to fall in love! Along with a range of beautifully-designed accommodation, other on-site features include a HOWM restaurant, a rooftop bar, a wellness deck, a cinema room, a common kitchen, complimentary WiFi, and a CoWork. Wake up to a morning mindfulness class before tucking into breakfast at our on-site restaurant, HOWM. Venture out on a range of tours, or hit the beach for some R&R before heading back to Selina and sipping cocktails with like-minded travelers at our rooftop bar as the live music gets into full swing.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed 10 days with my partner. Although lots of reviews describe this place as a party hostel we had no issues with anything related to noise. We stayed in a private room on the 2nd floor and while the hostel accommodated drinkers we weren’t affected at all.

I have stayed in many Selina hostels throughout Australia and the rooms were brilliant as hostel rooms go so no complaints there.

Location was excellent, right next to St Kilda beach with a tram stop outside to the centre.

Huge shoutout to the staff, especially AJ and Maria who really went above and beyond for us when we wanted to upgrade our room.

I couldn’t fault the stay, 10/10 from me.

The breakfast option that you could add on had a good choice from berries and waffles to toasties with a coffee included. The rooms were nice, the shelve and locker in the beds were very helpful. There were curtains too! The female only bathroom on the first floor was very nice and there was lots of space to chill around the hostel. Would recommend.

Selina was one of the first hostels I've ever stayed, though the staff were friendly and welcoming which making me feel comfortable right away. I stayed there for 3 nights in a 4 bed dorm and could have stayed longer since the beds are really comfy and the curtain gives added privacy. So great staff and rooms i would definitely stay again.

I stayed in the 6 bed dorms it was nice and clean, but building is old as the sound of people walking outside was very loud especially the Stairs makes very huge noise, and staff entered their crew door never left it gently so the door was banging all the time. Very disturbing.
And I borrowed the towel yesterday from the reception they charged me 6 dollors, as the booking.com said it required 5 dollars DEPOSIT. But today the lady from reception said their is no DEPOSIT and not wanting return the fee.
Very disappointed. Would not come back again. 4 star for the location and 1 star for the service.

We arrived at the newly decorated accommodation . The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The Double room we booked was very clean, comfortable and spacious. The decor was inviting and interesting. As it was a short visit we did not use the Breakfast room but it looked very clean and comfortable. We would definitely recommend a visit to Selina on Grey Street in St Kilda Melbourne. A great location to explore what Mrlbourne has to offer. Looking forward to our next visit and a longer stay in Selina's.

This hostel is amazing. Super clean, pillows + beds are comfy (yes, they give you TWO pillows!), the vibe is so right - everyone is so friendly so its easy to meet other backpackers and new friends! They have a cute rooftop and lots of events - like meditation and mandalas with Carolina, Gallery visits and city walks with Jorge, Salsa on Fridays... super fun stuff with friendly, knowledgeable staff. I came alone but left with heaps of new friends. I couldn't be happier with my stay at Selina! xx

Really loved the staff here , great people. Dakota the barista at the cafe, Tim the Manager and Julian and Hugo on the Bar are particular highlights. Had a great time and great food and coffee. Feels more like a community than most hostels in the Melbourne area!

Arrival: Upon arrival I was greeted by a new guy who was pretty new to the St Kilda gang. He seemed very lovely but it did take him a while to get me checked in. 15 minutes later I was still standing there waiting for him to tell me what was happening so perhaps better communication from him in the future would come across more friendly to new arrivals.

Rooms: When checking into my room, the room was super spacious and the beds were definitely the best I've had yet, with lockers above the beds and space underneath too. The best bit is the curtains to allow for a bit more privacy when wanting to chill in your room. The walls are PAPER-THIN though so you can literally hear everything from the corridors/out the windows from downstairs. If you're on the bottom floor, you're pretty much stuffed cause I would class this as a party hostel and you're never gunna get much sleep.

People: The people at this hostel seemed really friendly. I did bump into a lot of Dutch people though and in my opinion are not the friendliest. The hostel hosts events most nights - pretty much 100% of which involve drinking. So, if you're a non drinker it doesn't really cater for us. There was not 1 event I saw that didn't involve alcohol and as a non-drinker I would have liked to see more of that. I was mostly looking forward to beach volleyball and 'peer pong' but these were cancelled for no reason so that was pretty disappointing.

St Kilda Team: The cleaners are really lovely and got a really good vibe from all of them - there was one particular guy from Columbia who was an angel! As for the Canadian receptionist, you should get another job... sorry but being front-of-house is not your skill - you are so unfriendly and made everyone feel so on-edge. The tall skinny guy on reception was also really sweet.

Location: The location is right by the beach, only a 5-minute walk so really great location and also right by the tram station.
