Hi am going to Melbourne from Sydney on the 10th/11th March. I am am going to a Concert at Hifi Bar/Ballroom on Swanston Street on the 11th... Could anyone recommend a decent cheap hostel for a couple of nights near to Swanston Street.

Also how much would a taxi be from the Melbourne Avalon Airport to swanston street area,?, as this is where the jetstar plane comes in. Or is there metro from this airport to most parts of Melbourne?

Thank you

I've stayed at the Greenhouse, which is just off Swanston St at the Flinders Station end. It was a great backpackers, big, clean, not the cheapest around but I had a great time there :)

Avalon airport is actually not in Melbourne but located 55 (!) kilometers away from the city centre. No idea how much a taxi would cost you, but sunbus is probably a cheaper option.
