The Bendigo Hotel in Collingwood is in the heart of Melbourne's true live music precinct. Our backpacker accommodation consists of 2 very large mixed dorm-styled rooms, and one 2-person bunk bed room. We have a common room with a 42inch wall mounted plasma TV, fridges in the dorm rooms & common room including a toaster, kettle, microwave, Breville iron and a snack oven. All our rooms come with free Wi-Fi & wall-mounted fans. Separate male and female bathrooms, with separate toilets and separate washroom facilities.

We have a fully equipped kitchen available daily from 4pm, for all backpackers to cook in. We have a sunny beer garden in the downstairs venue and pool table in the downstairs front bar. Backpackers receive free access to all gigs in our venue + $10 Jugs. Cleaning of the common areas (kitchen, common room, bathrooms) is done daily.

We're always looking for bright, vibrant, energetic and passionate about live music bar staff to work at the Bendigo.

We are a Live Music Venue, so please be aware that live music will be playing in the venue from Wednesday to Sunday from 8pm until 12:30am and in some cases (the infamous Grouse Party), 3am. All backpackers get free entry to all events and $10 jugs, on presentation of their room keys at the bar.
Prices are per person per night.
