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.

    United backpackers was great. Close to everything, clean, had lots to offer, and most of all had the friendliest staff who were helpful beyond their job descriptions. Would 100% stay here again next time I’m in Melbourne

    Loved my stay here. I was in a 4-bed ensuite and had comfy beds, clean linen, enough space to keep my stuff and air con. Housekeeping cleaned the place everyday. The crew at the hostel are a very friendly bunch and ready to offer help and advice. The bar isn't too happening, but the location of the hostel is so awesome that you can always find happening places close by. Checkout at 11 is a big plus! Definitely staying here next time I'm in Melbourne. Cheers!

    This was my first hostel and I couldn’t have asked for a better one. I’m not one to leave reviews typically, but United deserves it. The staff was incredible. They knew absolutely everything about what to do, see, how to get there, who to book with, etc. They even helped me plan some of my NZ trip. Highly recommend staying at United!

    Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The free pancakes are great, the kitchen is well stocked.The bar is a great bonus - we particular enjoyed the magic man! However, we when we arrived, we felt very forced into buying multiple excursions, which made us both feel very uncomfortable. We booked what we wanted. However, still after this, the lady - Holly - wasn’t taking no for an answer. Although we appreciate that you guys need the sales asides from being a hostel, this was far too much!
