List of the best places for backpackers to stay in Melbourne Australia…?

Not every country or city for that matter is backpacker friendly. However, the place voted the world’s most livable city since 2011 is highly friendly to those who wish to see the world up close and personal.

Nevertheless, one should know the best places to lay one’s head while in Melbourne. Websites, word of mouth and hostels are just three ways a traveler can become educated on the more backpacker friendly spots in Melbourne.

Finding the Perfect Place

There are plenty of websites which can provide a list of places to go while in Melbourne. A specific search for backpackers would reveal insight from previous visitors, some of whom you could run into while there. Some places offer free breakfast and fun but affordable happy hours. However the one trait a backpacker should desire when searching online is what people say about the service. Twenty-four-hour service from friendly staff members is key for a weary traveler seeking lodging. What’s the point of free anything if the service is lousy?

In addition to websites, word of mouth is a powerful tool. Hostels in Melbourne already have a good international reputation. So when seeking to find a place to stay, one should consider one’s needs and ones desire when traveling.

Some hostels can be simple places to bathe and rest, while others offer more amenities for a traveler. From large to small dorm rooms to private rooms where one can sleep in comfort on a 9-inch thick mattress. Common areas where one can talk with other travelers to learn the ins and outs of the locale are also available. And of course, security cameras and on-site personnel can ensure your time at a hostel in Melbourne is a fun and safe one.

Lastly, consider location when it comes to choosing a backpackers accommodation in Melbourne. A hostel which caters to backpackers located in the heart of the city would be perfect. A hostel strategically stationed near supermarkets, restaurants, and entertainment venues within walking distance is a backpackers dream.

In addition, consider a hostel that can procure timely access to a shuttle to the airport, as well as connections to public transportation, which in Melbourne is the Skybus, and even UBER would marvelously add to that hostel’s appeal.

When it comes to deciding where to go for a backpacker friendly hostel in Melbourne, a savvy traveler can find plenty of access to valuable information when it comes time to make a decision. Just be sure to consider that using internet websites and reading reviews from fellow backpackers is a great way to gain knowledge.

So, when it’s all said and done, a backpacker has plenty of choices of where to stay while visiting the beautiful city of Melbourne. They are welcomed and desired. Just don’t get mad if once you come to visit, you choose to stay.
