The hostel is walking distance to the Yarra River, Federation Square, ACMI and Melbourne Aquarium.

Affordable tours are available at reception to Victoria’s best attractions including Phillip Island penguin tours, day trips to the Grampians National Park and of course the Great Ocean Road! In the hostel, the high speed YHA Connect internet, Wi-Fi and Skype allows you to catch up with friends and family back home and tell them about your adventures – not to mention uploading your photos!

Our kitchens and guest lounges have recently had a renovation, and we have also added 2 exclusive rooftop rooms with ensuites. Inside the combined kitchen/guest lounge areas, we have flat screen TV’s and you can borrow DVD’s for free from reception.

YHA focus on guest safety, and have installed electronic door locks throughout the hostel. All multishare rooms have lockers, but we do ask you to bring your own lock; but if you forget, don’t worry; locks can be purchased from reception if required.

Up on the rooftop, we have a new BBQ area – the perfect spot for a drink and a city sunset. We also have an additional undercover level one balcony area with couches.
