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.

    Had a great stay at United. The staff was very friendly and the bar had a great atmosphere. I happened to be there for karaoke night and enjoyed that. The location is convenient and would highly recommend the walking tour that goes on

    I am really pleased with my 4 night stay at United. It’s definitely the best hostel I’ve stayed in whilst travelling Australia. The staff were awesome and the hostel had a brilliant vibe with great facilities. It’s situated in the perfect place, although there are free trams around everything touristy is within walking distance. I’d definitely recommend all travellers to stay here whilst in Melbourne!

    Staff were friendly and helpful. Nice clean rooms. Good location, close to shops etc. Only downside was it is across the road from Federation Square which has it's lights on all night. The room had a curtain for this but it is hard to completely cover the window.
