7 Best Female-friendly Hostels in Melbourne

Best Female-friendly Hostels in Melbourne

Habitat HQ

This hostel will find a place in your heart in little to no time as the staff are very helpful and the hostel layout creates a great, natural vibe. The spacious common area and the terrace make it easy to meet other travellers, so get mingling and you’ll have new friends to explore quirky St. Kilda with. The hostel events are also a great place to find your travel tribe. 

Space Hotel

Enjoy the comfort of cosy private rooms, a gym to keep you fit and healthy, a pool to relax in and the bar and restaurant for a dinner for two for not more than the usual hostel price. Feeling pampered and relaxed? Time to head out for an adventure in Melbourne Central, the Queen Victoria Market, Carlton Gardens, Melbourne Museum or a romantic night in the IMAX cinema just next door.

Urban Central

Melbourne Central is central indeed, it’s just a short distance from both the beach and the city centre and a perfect stay to enjoy some hostel-extras with your partner. Collect great memories by joining the Latino dance classes or listen to some live music at the hostel bar. More date ideas needed? Stroll along the Yarra River which is just a few minutes’ walk away and head to the Eureka Skydeck to watch the sun set behind the Melbourne Skyline. 

Nomads St. Kilda

Just a few minutes away from the beach, restaurants, shops and pubs, this hostel is the perfect place for party animals. It’s ideal for travellers who are looking for a young crowd to hang out with rather than getting a good night’s sleep. Head to the hostel bar, where they host an event nearly every night and find your party people! If you feel rough in the morning, don’t worry as there’s nothing the free, vegan-friendly breakfast can’t fix.

Base St. Kilda

It’s the #1 entertainment-based hostel in town and the Red Eye Bar is a popular spot for all backpackers in Melbourne, especially in St. Kilda, so prepare yourself to meet the young and international party-crowd. Base’s events are anything but boring: be the best bad-looking guest at the hostel’s fancy dress thrift-shop competition and show your moves with a chance to become Queen or King of St.

Hub Hostel

Standing out as one of the most affordable hostels with private rooms, Hub Hostel also offers you a great location in the quiet North of Melbourne. Backpackers love it for its snug family vibes and it even looks like a big, cosy family home. If you’re down for some hustle and bustle, you can just hop on to the tram and head straight into the city centre to explore the nightlife and the best cafes, bars and pubs.

Melbourne Central YHA

This hostel has an awesome perk right on top of it: Laze on the rooftop after a true Aussie meal from the barbie and overlook the city while you chat to new friends and enjoy an amazing sunset. The best part? Your bed will only be a few steps away in the Melbourne Central YHA. Located right in the city centre and with an awesome terrace and incredible views, it will give you all the urban city vibes and an amazing photo spot.
