Bendigo Hotel

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

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 two private, 2-person bunk bed rooms.

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 WiFi & wall-mounted fans. Separate male and female bathrooms, with separate toilets and separate washroom facilities.

We have a fully equipped kitchen available daily from 9am til 5pm, 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 + $5.50 Pints of Skull Lager. Cleaning of the upstairs backpacking accommodation is done daily.

To preserve and maintain our great atmosphere we do not accept travelers over the age of 38, pets or persons less than 18 years of age.

We often are in need of bright, vibrant & energetic cleaning or bar staff who are passionate about live music, to work at the Bendigo. Let us know if you are interested!

Important Information

Hey there, Thank You for booking with the Bendigo Hotel/Music Venue in Collingwood, Here are some important details you need to know before your arrival.

All Deposits paid to Hostelworld are non-refundable.

Our check-in time is strictly from 11am, but check out is very flexible.

We only accept cash payments upon check in.

We also have special prices available for people who wish to extend their stay (subject to availability).

When the pub is closed all you need to do to gain access is to RING the BOTTLE SHOP DOOR BELL, but Tiff's number is 0435 884 488 - write it down, just in case no one hears the bell.

Please be aware that the Bendigo Hotel is in Collingwood, at 125 Johnston st, Collingwood, NOT 125 Johnston st, Fitzroy - that is the LuWow, which is a great nightclub, but not us ;-)
