Looking for a hostel?

Budget travelers know there's no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: Save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a little more.

Hostels That Guests Love in Melbourne

Melbourne Central Hostel

“Cleanest Youth Hostel group to stay with in my experience. Roomy rooms. Clean up-to-date bathroom. Immaculate linen and convenient large safety boxes below bunk beds (big enough to slip a non-stuffed backpack into) so BYO padlock and you are set.”

St Kilda East Lodge

“Maybe one of the best hostel in Melbourne, really cheap with a lot of charms. Emilia have been really friendly and listening to people. Far away from any shops but the area is peaceful and beautiful. 30 walking to St kilda beach. All what I like with this hostel, you feel as part of a big family who have many different people and stories. I loved it”
