Discovery Melbourne (Formerly Hotel Discovery)
Lonely Planet review
Housed in a rather grand old building, Discovery offers standard hostel rooms with lots of extras such as a rooftop garden, ‘cinema’ and a great location just near Victoria Market. There’s also lounging areas, pool tables, a bar and café, which make for a very social atmosphere. Family rooms and en suite doubles are available too.
Our independent authors have visited Discovery Melbourne (Formerly Hotel Discovery) and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Melbourne.
