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

    This place does not feel like a hostel, but more like a shared house. The owner Paul knows how to run a hostel! He knows how backpackers work and live and contributes to our comfort and well being. Go here if you want a home in Melbourne!

    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

    Very few hostels make you feel at home, this one has the charm to make you feel that it is your home.

    Fantastic accommodation option, it feels a lot more homely than other hostels in melbourne. Comfortable beds, the rooms aren’t too crowded, there’s a big kitchen and living room area with a Tv, and it’s in a great location in the middle of Collingwood. Thanks Paul for the fab stay!

    Collingwood is a perfect location. The atmosphere at the hostel is really relaxed and friendly. Most people are staying long term so it’s a bit messy since everyone has made it their home but the place really crows on you and starts to feel like a home very soon. This place is great if you want to meet people and have a good time in Melbourne!

    Good hostel with friendly people. As a lot of people stay long term it has the feel of a shared flat with 10+ people. That’s probably why it’s a bit messy. The facilities definitely need some renovation.

    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.
