Welcome to the Corkman Irish Pub and hostel newly opened in October 2009 the rooms are freshly decorated and have lots of space, with only 24 beds our motto is "Quality rather than Quantity" within 10min walk of everything, from Melbourne CBD to Victoria Market and Melbourne University. An award winning restaurant downstairs with meal deals available Mon to Fri nights. Very quiet location and very safe with swipe card entry and security cameras. Great bar with a live Irish Music Session every Thursday night from 7pm.
Looking forward to welcoming you to the Corkman.

The Corkman has a NO Smoking Policy but ash trays are provided outside for smokers. We are situated in a very quiet area off of the main streets and away from most of the noisy city traffic. A leisurly 5min stroll to the famous Lygon Street, Italian district with all it's fantastic restaurants, 10 min walk to the CBD with all it has to offer. Downstairs at the Corkman we have an award winning restaurant with meal deals available from Mon to Fri night, great friendly and helpful staff and the best live Traditional Irish music session every Thursday night from 7pm.
Comfortable beds with lots of room to move around, a TV room with a flat screen TV and DVD player for your enjoyment, a brand new kitchen and all freshly decorated.
Prices are per person per night.

Located on the corner of Leicester Street and Pelham Street directly opposite Melbourne Uni Law School. Two blocks north of the Victoria Market on Leicester Street ,which runs off of Victoria Street.

If coming from the airport take the Skybus shuttle into the City ($16 one way or $26 return). Skybus will stop at the Southern Cross Terminal and from there you can ask for the FREE Sky-minibus transfer to Rydges Hotel on Swanston St, from where it is less than 2 minutes walk around the corner to The Corkman Hostel

If walking from the CBD walk straight up Elizabeth Street until you get to the Victoria Street Junction by Queen Victoria Markets. From their head across and up Leicester Street. Just two blocks up we are on the corner of Leicester and Pelham Street.
