Hi all

I am currently in Melbourne and having problems finding a friendly hostel. The hostel I am staying at is big and people seem to have made there own groups. I am little shy but will chat to people if the opportunity arose. I was in a hostel in Brisbane and got on great there and amde lots of friends however I find this hostel is tough to interact with people. I really like melbourne so far but this is playing on my mind.

Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated

Thank you x
