Best Melbourne hostels

Top tips for finding the perfect Melbourne hostel

  • If you are looking for Melbourne hostels that are good for solo travellers, then we recommend Space Hotel – Hostel, as it is a highly rated option that is located within the Central Business District of Melbourne. It has a fitness centre, laundry services and the option to have shared or private rooms and bathrooms. It has a shared kitchen, should you wish to prepare your own meals, as well as offering its own restaurant too, should you want someone else to cook for you.
  • For travellers who are interested in Melbourne hostels that are good for groups of friends or families, we recommend that you consider staying at the Melbourne City Backpackers accommodation. The hostel offers female only dorms, should you want it, as well as dorms of four, six and 16 guests, meaning that no matter how large your group, you will be able to stay together. You can also get private or family rooms with a complimentary breakfast and there are DVDs, games and music available for children.
  • There are a few good options for Melbourne hostels that are close to public transport connections, such as the Melbourne Metro Yha hostel. It offers an airport shuttle service for a surcharge and is only 1 stop (about 0.2 miles or 300 metres) from the free tram zone of the city centre, meaning that you can travel to anywhere in the city easily. It is also only 1.4 miles from the Southern Cross Station, where you can take buses and trains around the city or to other major cities in Australia.
  • If you would like to stay somewhere in Melbourne that is a little cheaper but well located, we suggest the Queen Victoria Hostel. It has competitive prices and it is in the North Melbourne District, close to the Melbourne Museum, the Princess Theatre and the Block Arcade. It is also right beside the Queen Victoria Market.
