Have been looking on hostelworld but cannot find a good hostel to stay at for 6 nights.
I want
- easy access to transport (hate nightmares from airport to hostel)
- near to a few bars
- easy to meet other travellers
(this is as well as cleanliness etc)
Any recommendations would be appreciated

    There is a fantastic hostel that is fairly cheap, on the corner of Spencer St and Flinders St. 2 minute walk from the infamous King St, Crown Casino, Southern Cross Railway Station and 2 Shopping Centres. The hostel has great facilities. Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->…-nations-backpackers

    I stayed here:

    I’m an Aussie, was just staying in Melb for a holiday and this place was cool. It’s close to the Crown Casino, right on the tramline, and nice and new.

    I stayed earlier this year at the YHA Melbourne Central and it was wonderful. The free loop tram was outside the front door, you can buy a package with breakfast from the cafe next door, there is a bar at the hostel. it was amazing and so close to everything!
