What To Look For In The Best Hostels in Melbourne

Where you stay is a critical element of any backpacking trip or visit to Melbourne. A little careful research can go a long way to ensure a memorable vacation or stopover. Here’s our top tips for finding the best hostels in Melbourne:

Positive Reviews

It goes without saying that the standard between hostels in Melbourne can be pretty significant, yet the difference in price may not be so significant. Before booking any hostel in Melbourne, look up their reviews on TripAdvisor, Google and social media. Just because their tagline might suggest they are one of the “best hostels to stay in Melbourne”, doesn’t mean that’s true. Their online reviews will truly reveal all!

Location, Location, Location

A great deal isn’t such a great deal if your hostel is located in an industrial area or within only driving distance of local amenities. The best backpackers in Melbourne understand the important of a central location when choosing a hostel. The more central your location, the more you can get from your stay. Areas outside of Melbourne CBD like St. Kilda can prove more affordable for backpackers and offer lots more things to see and do.


Consider not only the price of the hostel but think about the affordability of amenities and excursions in the area too. A hostel located near a beach and coastal area or forests and parks will provide hours of free entertainment. Check out if the area has cheap eats and drinks and factor the cost of all entertainment into the price of your trip to uncover the truly best hostel for your budget.

Located just 6km south-east of the Melbourne CBD, St. Kilda is a hugely popular area for Melbourne backpackers. The bohemian beach area boasts a wide range of things to see and do, no matter your budget. Here are some of the top reasons for you to stay in St. Kilda:
