Hi!

Just wondering what lively and nice hostels would people recommend in Melbourne?

I can't recommend one to stay at, but I can recommend one not to stay at. DO NOT stay at All Nations Backpackers. That place is really really trashy. It was pretty sociable when I was there a couple of years back, but the trashiness made it very bad being there.

yeah I stayed there, it was pretty dirty, not to mention the bed bugs... don't stay there. Although were a bunch of places, I forget the name of the street now but right near Flinders station, some hostels there looked much nicer and seemed "lively" but I made the mistake of prepaying 3 nights at All Nations.

Base Backpackers in St Kilda is nice and pretty lively. There is a big bar there and its quite a social hostel.

The Green Room on Flinders Lane is right in the heart of the city, clean comfortable, has pleanty of bars nearby and pubcrawls/melbourne nitelife organised by hostel staff for free.
