State of the art facilities with a laid back vibe

The hostel is located only a short tram ride from Melbourne city centre, and in the heart of St Kildas' cafes, restaurants, bars and boutiques. The famous Acland and Fitzroy St are only a minute's walk away. Come and experience our great facilities and hang out with our friendly local staff.

Melbourne is a city that is easy to explore, with flexible and no-fuss ways to move around the city. Cruise, cycle, walk or take a tram to attractions and events around the city. Restaurants, cafes, pubs, clubs and bars are always buzzing in Melbourne. An international range of cuisine is on offer across town - hidden down laneways, high above street level or overlooking the waterfront. From the cutting edge to classic, boutique to big time, Melbourne’s vibrant shopping scene is alive with alluring labels, products and shopping experiences – some home grown, some world-renowned.

Please Note: If you wish to book 5 or more guests, you will be required to fill out the group enquiry form which can be accessed through the "Group Bookings" link on the home page of this website.

Have Fun!
After being tested on size of natural smile and zest for life, Base Melbourne St Kilda’s staff are quizzed on knowledge of tram routes, history of the city, and local haunts. Only then do they join our young energetic team. We love what we do and this is visible from the moment you check in until you’re served your final beer at the infamous Red Eye bar.

Cleanliness
We love cleaning! Our permanent full time housekeeping team will tip-toe past you at midday everyday to start in your bathroom then come back in the afternoon to vacuum and empty your rubbish. Our house keeping team give the communal kitchen a go over three times a day!

Convenience
Base Melbourne St Kilda is a universe under one roof – travel agent, internet centre, a happening bar, chillout area, cute smoking courtyard, underground carpark and a ‘fit for a piggy’ all ya can eat breakfast buffet.
If you do need to feel the sun on your face - everything else is a hop, step and jump away! Shops, trams, beach, bars, clubs, banks, post office, even an amusement park (with the worlds oldest operating roller coaster!).
Getting here and away is no problem. From the train it’s a 20min tram ride, and from the airport there is a bus that drops you right at the front door. Stay three nights and we’ll even pay for the bus!
