Property Description

Our Hostel has been best described by a previous guest as follows...

'Set in the midst of the coffee and cake fuelled scene that is Collingwood, Collingwood Backpackers is typically laid back and easy going. Its staggering distance from the popular and vibrant Brunswick street, with copius bars, live music events and atmosphere galore. A short tram ride is all it takes before you are in the depths of Melbourne city centre with shops and bars galore. Collingwood Backpackers does not cater for the 'mad fer it' backpacker but prefers to detach itself from the lets get pissed and then puke everywhere scene, instead opting for a much more relaxed approach with most of its residents choosing to stay for a few weeks rather than a couple of nights, altogether making it feel more like a home from home. As such of course it doesn't have the clinical feeling of many of the other backpacker hostels and there are only nine bedrooms in total. It is well used, so don't come here expecting a palace, it is the environment, the location and the people that sell this hostel not how it looks, don't expect power showers and a bleached kitchen and you won't be disappointed.'

We have no bars, no nightly competitions, no activities that will cost you extra, however, there exists over one hundred local pubs, bars, clubs, cafes outside our door, we are close to everything that's Melbourne.

You are welcome to stay a few nights and try us out. View House Rules

    Just what I needed ! Great staff, clean kitchen, friendly and relaxed atmosphere, safe and great location. Everyone was extremely friendly and invited me to organized events without question. I would stay here again, and most likely will in the future ! Thanks everyone :)

    By far the best hostel I've ever stayed at, stayed here for 4 and a half months until I had to leave because of the coronavirus crisis. It's not the cleanest but everything is perfect and Paul is a really good guy. Will 100% be going back once this coronavirus situation is over.

    One of the most sociable hostels I have stayed in. As a solo traveller it was very easy to meet and talk to everyone in the hostel which has the feeling of a house share

    Loved my stay at collingwood backpackers ! Its located in collingwood (duh) near all the cafés ect and very close to fitzroy. The owner is a great guy, very helpful and with a great sense of humour. Its a small hostel so everyone is nice, very social and family vibe. I stayed for a few days only and even though most guests are staying long term, I still felt very welcome and had fun. Met some great people here !

    Wow Collingwood Backpackers made my stay in Melbourne 100 times better than expected! NO, this is NOT a spotless, hostel, with luxurious beds, soap dispensers, towels, etc. YES, the owner is not your average fellow, but he is also very kind and funny with a great sarcastic humor. BUT, it's the guests that make this hostel SPECIAL! People here are friends, they share with eachother, party together, eat, drink, smoke and chill. It's such a fun, laid back atmosphere in an awesome neighborhood!

    Less hostel, more share-house. Paul (the owner) has a wonderfully witty and wry sense of humour and takes care of his guests. But don't get on his bad side; he won't take s*** from anyone. There's something like 40 people living here at peak occupancy, so at any given moment you'll be sharing the kitchen with someone making something with a tortilla. The social currency here is rolling tobacco, although smiles and remembering names also helps. Don't stay here if you can't hang or have no chill.

    No frills, chill & respectful. Be good & treat each other well. Extended my stay from 5 days to 3 weeks. The location is great for anyone working or visiting. This place adjusts to the people living there, and Paul is around to make sure it goes well. ☀️

    Very Good

    Great location. Next to all the best coffee shops, breakfast spots, food, live music, bars, etc. Comfy beds. All linen provided (including towels which is nice). Super mellow. You basically self check in and self check out. Lots of young backpackers and long term guests. Smells like cat food. Messy/ dirty which I dont mind but if you do then this is not the place for you.
