From Tullamarine airport:

The Skybus does not have to be booked in advance and will normally be waiting outside the airport. It runs approximately every 10 minutes in the day and every 30 minutes in the very early hours. It will take you from the airport to Southern Cross Station. Your driver can arrange a free transfer from Southern Cross to the hostel: Free Courtesy shuttle runs Monday- Friday 6am – 10.30pm & Saturday, Sunday 7.30am – 5.30pm. (approximately $18)

If the Skybus courtesy shuttle is not available from Southern Cross, tram 96 (towards East Brunswick) or tram 86 (towards Bundoora) from outside the station will take you to stop 11 on Nicholson St (opposite St. Vincent's Hospital). We are only 20 meters up Victoria Parade from the tram stop. DO NOT get 86 (towards Docklands) or 96 (towards St Kilda Beach) as they will take you in the opposite direction. All trams WITHIN Melbourne CBD (just the CBD) are free and you do not require a MYKI card to use them.

A taxi direct from Tullamarine to the hostel will cost approximately $60.

From Avalon: 
Take the Sunbus to Southern Cross Station and proceed as above. From St.Kilda: 
Take tram 96 and jump off on Nicholson St as above.
