Very noisy and smoking is allowed in the common room. Far from the city but very good position for live music clubs

This hostel is more like a shared house, just the way a hostel should be. Everyone is like a big family hanging out together. Tiff and Guy are very friendly and helpful. Cheap food and drinks in the bar downstairs and free entry into all the gigs. What more can you ask for? Located in my favourite part of Melbourne, Collingwood is great, loads of bars and shops inc. Woolworths nearby. I will stay here every time I'm in Melbourne.

The staff at the Bendigo are the best. Tiff, Guy and Vincent create a very homely atmosphere and really gonout if their way for you. Comfy beds, good bar with cheap PINTS, top notch meals for half price! Rooms cleaned thoroughly every morning. This is the only hostel for me in Melbourne

Tiff and the rest of the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The building is older, but the rates they charge take that into consideration. One of the better hostel experiences I've had to date. I'd definitely book here again.

Don't look for another hostel, this one is perfect ! If I come back in Melbourne, I'll go back there for sure !

Friendly atmosphere, all the essentials for short or long term stays, free Wifi, which is a plus in Australia. Cheap drink and food deals for the hostel guests. And of course Tiff. Keeps the place running well and is always up for a laugh. If you prefer the intimate, laid back, homely feel, then this is the best hostel in Melbourne for that.

The Bendigo remains my favourite place to stay in Melbourne, and one of my favourite hostels I've ever stayed in. Tiff is the most wonderful lady, and the whole place has such great vibes. Looking forward to seeing you next time we're in Melbourne!

I loved this hostel! Great vibes and very friendly staff. I felt comfortable and at home immediately. It's a great place to meet people and is very conveniently located above a music venue so there's no lack of entertainment. I would love to go back one day and highly recommend it to those who want to stay in a fun and social environment. Great location as well if you want to get away from the tourist trap of the CBD, but is close to public transport and easy to get around the city.

A cosy place close to Melbourne´s alternative bar-scene! If you dont mind some music in the night and slightly small bathrooms, this place will make you feel at home. A few things could be improved but nothing is really missing. Special thanks to the wonderful host Tiffany :)

Your the best....

Probably one of the worse experiences i have ever had in a hostle. The problem was not the place itself, but the noisy inhabitants! People was getting drunk and running and screaming untill 4 a.m and the stuff of the hostle didn't do anything to solve the problem, the lack of respect for other hosts of that people was shocking...

It's an excellent hostel with the best possible atmosphere. If you are open-minded and enjoy live music or simply hanging out with a good bunch of people, you will have an awesome time at the Bendigo. Tiff makes you feel at home right away, which really makes the difference. I can only recommend this hostel to everybody. The only downside is that Guy doesn't understand anything about Tennis. However, I think that's negligible ;-)

Had a great time over Christmas here. Tiff is very friendly and helpful. The location is great, and the discounted food and drink from the bar downstairs is a fantastic bonus too. Not a large hostel, felt more like being in a shared house with friends which is ideal. Music downstairs varies so don't be put off - try something new! Will definitely go back next time I'm in Melbourne.
