yesterday me and my colleagues were in St. Kilda and decided to stay at Redan apartments which was due to that 'motel' being the only one in the area. I wouldn't even call it a 'motel', the representation of it looked like a homeless shelter or an abandoned mental asylum, We were apauled by the multiple rubbish bins left at the front, in which to our disgust, all 3 of them were filled to the top- which means that they barely empty out their bins. Honestly, I do not know why they haven't declared this place as a hazard. Most appauling motel running buisness I have ever been to. A homeless man's home in a cardboard box would've been better than this garbage dump and I would've rather sleep outside then getting inside of that dump.

Room tip: disgusting do not go here

Disgusted guests and "down and out impoverished client"s being sent here from Launch Housing and the Salvation Army are discribing the un supervised place as unsafe, full of criminal activities and filfthy!
Recently channel 9 ran a news item on disgruntled guests saying it was a rat hole.
There is zero management on site, recently when I went there to speak to the caretaker, he/she refused to answer the door buzzer.
A resident let us in and our inspection of the passages revealed filfthy worn out carpets, soiled walls, darkened passages, and a general state of disrepair.
Heavens knows what the rooms are like?
What ever the stay price being offered, its a total waste of money. The place is an absolute stinker and should be shut down.
The Government says it is now looking into this.

Room tip: Don'tgo here, its far safer to sleep in a near-by park

I have been staying here since April 2018, I was put into room 21. The lights had no globes in them, the draws were broken, drain was blocked, heater was broken hot plates didn’t work - knobs were broken, mice running around, cockroaches everywhere, bed bugs, shower door didn’t close & shower had mould in it! My heater was leaking that bad it flooded half my room when I threatened VCAT they got my heater fixed. I kept waking up with bites and ended up seeing bed bugs all over my bed. I’ve never once had an issue with bedbugs before coming here! I had text Steven at least 5 times telling him how bad the bedbugs are. He got pest control to come out but because there’s no where to leave your clothes pest control told me they couldn’t treat my room because I had clothes everywhere! I was given 15 minutes to bag all mine & my daughters belongings and have them out of the room. Steven told me to wash and dry every item of clothing etc ($50) later... That night the bed bugs were back!! I’m now in room 17... Drain is still blocked, there is no remote for my TV, no knob for my heater so it’s constantly on (To fix this they got a bottle cap and putty and used that but clearly it didn’t work as you go to turn it & it comes off!), shower is all mouldy and bed bugs!! I wake up with at least 10-20 bites from the bed bugs & my hot plates don’t work! I had Steven look at my hot plates who said I have to use the power switch and not to touch the knobs as there broken, I explained it’s the same in room 21 his response was “There’s nothing I can do!” So it takes me just under 4 hours to cook a simple meal such as potato and sausages... I’ve once again messaged Steven about the bed bugs and his response this time was “There was never bed bugs in either room before you moved in!” It’s horrible!! Don’t ever stay here!
For $800 a fortnight it’s not worth it!!
I’m now in the process of going through VCAT!
This place needs to be shut down!!
Who’s with me to help shut this place down?!

I wish I had read the reviews for this place earlier. Yes it is disgusting, we booked this place as a last minute because accommodation in Melbourne was limited. After seeing the room we decided to stay somewhere else. Not the place to stay with an 18 month old baby. The minute I walked in and saw the rubbish an mess on the floor I knew I had made a mistake. I waited 15minutes at the reception which is padlocked with a big wooden door. I asked to see the room and it was also disgusting broken fly screen on the windows and the bathroom had tiles fallen of the wall, stained sink and loo. The main entrance was held open with a stick and a few unsavory looking characters came in and out. Thankfully we found somewhere else to stay and I am still waiting on a refund from this dodgy place. DO NOT STAY HERE

Room tip: Don't Stay here - Dirty old and unsafe
