I had a great time here, matts an agreeable manager and the hostel is directed for those working and staying in Melbourne for a while so the guests become good friends happy to welcome the new people into the group so atmosphere there was excellent. There are different events never far off which makes a good icebreaker for the new and a good time for everyone. I'd recommend this hostel to anyone going to be in Melbourne be that as guest or staff. Definitely one of the best hostels I've worked in

I feel very blessed to be part of LPR and feel that I am not alone here in the end of the world :), Matt is very nice and I feel very grateful with him. I am learning so much in this journey that have been a beautiful life experience for me, I loved the harmony and the good vibe that the people have in this LP family :)

Landing Pads is a great place to start your working for accommodation because you'll be exposed to a variety of tasks. The working hours are a bit limited to certain times which can be challenging if you're planning to work another job, but Matt tries his best to be flexible with your schedule. The hostel environment is like one giant family and there's always something going on- you won't get bored here!

My experience at LP was awesome! Since it is a long term hostel, it really does feel like a little family away from home. Matt has put a lot of thought into making sure the hostel has everything you could want during your stay . There are events on each day which makes for a great way to experience the city and meet new people in the hostel. There are communal areas for group meals and movie nights. There is training for all work which consists of cleaning the kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms and communal spaces. I'd recommend this hostel to a friend to stay or to work. Fantastic experience!

This is easily my favourite hostel that I have stayed in. There is such a great atmosphere in the house which truly makes it feel like a home away from home, surrounded by a great bunch of people.
The staff are all fantastic and hardworking who are always willing to lend a hand. It definitely is a team!
I cannot recommend this place highly enough!
