Experience Melbourne like a local in the heart of the vibrant city. Melbourne Central YHA is ideally located near Southern Cross station and only minutes walk from Melbourne's main attractions and hidden laneways filled with famous street art, cafes and unique bars.

The hostel offers modern facilities with two compact self-catering kitchens, Wi-Fi, Skype, tour desk, internet lounges and an amazing rooftop complete with BBQ for you to enjoy the spectacular city views and meet fellow travellers. Security is important to us with lockers in all multi-share rooms, electronic door locks and CTV.

There’s always plenty to do in Australia’s sport and events capital! Our friendly hostel never closes with 24 hour reception and our staff are always ready to answer your questions, give local advice on the best spots to check out and organise the next leg of your journey. Melbourne Central YHA is only a short walk to Melbourne's main attractions including Federation Square, ACMI, Yarra River, Bourke St Mall, Eureka Skydeck, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Docklands, Crown Casino, Etihad Stadium, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne Aquarium and so much more. The free City Circle Tram and the $5 Melbourne Tourist Shuttle stops directly out the front of the hostel and will take you to all the iconic Melbourne sites like the MCG, the Shrine of Remembrance and Rod Laver Arena.
