So Ive just booked my flights to Aus, heading into Melbourne. No plans as yet, no hostel booked or anything. Would be great to hear from people in Melbourne at same time :)

If anyone has any info on good hostels to meet people in Melbourne would love to hear from you.

Australia is quite expensive but hostelbookers has a good selection of budget accommodation, including hotels:

Don't book late or the cheapies may all be gone.

Hi Leigh,

You might want to check out the accommodation on Travellerspoint.
This will also come in handy if you're travelling on a WHV, as bookings placed before the end of August have the chance to win one of three WWOOF Australia memberships. Check out Peter's forum post for more.

Hope this helps!

Hi Leigh - I'm heading to Melbourne at the end of August. Booked a hostel in the CBD for the first 2 weeks until I figure the place out. I'm on my own so wouldn't mind meeting other travelers if we are there at the same time.

Hi Leigh - I struggled to pick one as well but decided to start out in the CBD because it seemed easier to get to from the airport and figured I'd be exhausted from the flight. I'm staying at the YHA Central then moving to Urban Central. I also heard St. Kilda is good. Let me know what you choose. Good luck!
