    Superb

    11 Oct 2018
    Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed our weeks stay here. Beds were comfy with a decent amount of room in the rooms to move around easily. The facilities were good and everywhere was very clean all of the time which was very impressive! We enjoyed it so much we will be staying there again next week and if anyone asks me for a hostel to stay at in Melbourne I recommend I would most definitely say United Backpackers. Good for a people who party and people who don’t!

    a little small but very clean rooms & great facilities. Bathrooms are clean & staff is friendly! Location is next to flinders street station so you can essentially get on any train or tram with a 5 minute walk. Love United, would stay again.

    Great location, staff a little less than enthusiastic. Room clean and comfortable. Shower is my only complaint- was either cold or scolding hot- no in between. If this issue was fixed would definitely choose to stay again.
