Underneath the beds is a lockable storage space so again remember your padlock. My room was on the 1st floor room104 along from reception and the balcony area. Bathrooms on this level were clean...

Ina. Good location with nandos and dominos opposite! Only downside is that it isn't very sociable so I would recommend coming here with friends and...

Stayed here for a quick night on the town while visiting my sister who lives on the outskirts of Melbourne. Was affordable and a good location. Rooms were a decent size and we were conveniently alone in a four bed dorm. Showers were good and clean. Staff were super friendly. Security is good.

I have stayed at Melbourne Central YHA twice now, the first time last year in November due to be stranded at the airport due to our bank being shut down and the YHA being the ONLY 24 hour check-in and accepting cash! We arrived at 2am to a friendly guy and was given our cards and off we went, we...

Location, location! But it's more than the location, it's just a great place to stay. Sure, the bunks are a little squeaky but the rooms are comfortable and clean. The bathrooms are great (private showers with change area). The kitchens although small are well equipped and are a great place to meet your fellow travelers. I tried another hostel and...

The location is ideal for walking into the city and is also next door to the Bunyip tours office which was useful on several occasions.The staff were always very friendly and helpful and the rooms, kitchen and bathrooms were very clean.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
