Lonely Planet review
This friendly, efficient, clean and super-safe hostel (with 24-hour reception) can be a respite from the debauchery of King St, and has a handy location for Southern Cross station. It piles on the freebies, including pancakes on Sunday, internet access and a decent feed of pasta on Wednesday nights. Both dorms and private rooms are well maintained, and a step above many others.
Our independent authors have visited King Street Backpackers and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Melbourne.
