Overview

United Backpackers Hostel is full of personality, with touches of Melbourne’s laneway culture, funky décor and quirky art throughout. All this is served up with a great atmosphere, heaps of common rooms to hang out in, top-notch security and amazing local staff on a mission to give you the best Aussie experience possible. You can start your day with our free walking tour of Melbourne's CBD, then end it in our basement bar, Lost & Found, for regular events like taco nights and live music.

Location

We're right opposite Flinders Street Station, your need-to-know transport hub: go there to connect to and from Tullamarine Airport, or for pretty much any bus or train. Get around the CBD using the free City Circle tram, which stops right by our front door! Take a 7-minute stroll to Eureka Skydeck to catch amazing city views, or walk for four minutes to our nearest park, Birrarung Marr.

Rooms and Dorms

Don't worry about bringing your own bed linen – we provide it for free. Whatever your travel needs, we've got a place for you to rest, from friendly mixed and female-only dorms to private en-suite rooms. You'll have access to a storage locker, free Wi-Fi, your own power socket and an individual reading light. Our rooms are super secure, too, as they're accessible only via key-card. Good news for tired legs: you can get around our building easily with the elevator.

Extras and activities

When you stay with us you get a choice of spaces to hang out. Head to our beanbag-filled TV room or our hip underground chill-out lounge, or play a game of pool in our common area. Come dinnertime, save some cash for your next night out by cooking in our modern, fully equipped kitchen, which has an adjoining dining room with a view of Flinders Street Station.

    This was my first time staying in a hostel and I was surprised by how clean and neat everything was. The staff was super friendly and helpful. I actually felt very secure I stayed in room with 3 other people and they were very considerate of each other and nice. I would definitely recommend.

    Right across from main downtown train station but part of road currently closed so a small bit harder to get to than normally would be. Have plug and light next to bed, but no usb. Room, floor and building access is driven by card. Free pancake breakfast but they where small and a little tough so not sure it is really worth it. TV room would be better with something other than bean bags for chairs.

    Lots of people living there for long periods of time and treating dorms as their own personal rooms with little consideration for others sharing the room. Playing loud music through the night when people are clearly trying to sleep, gathering in groups talking until past 1am and being extremely loud coming in from nights out- wearing ear plugs didn’t help. Told staff and didn’t seem too bothered. One girl behind the desk was very understand but unfortunately only met her at the end of the trip.
