What I Can Share with Hosts
half the backpackers in melbourne come straight to st.kilda. so the flat is in a good location. flat in a private block of flats, close to shops and transport. Balaclava railway station 5 min walk from flat. near city and beach. however l am not a very good cook !!! tend to eat out. !!! l think most of the young women staying with me see me as a father figure. !!! l like to take out my couchsurfers for dinner. there are several yoga studios nearby. there is food from all around the world in st.kilda.!!! l have a bike the couchsurfer can use.
