Melbourne Central YHA

Melbourne Central YHA is temporarily closed. In the mean time we look forward to welcoming you at Melbourne Metro YHA where you can live like a local and enjoy all the best that Melbourne has to offer.

Due to the shared nature of the facilities at YHA properties, YHA requires all guests to provide proof of full vaccination and wear masks in common areas. A safe stay is our top priority so we have enhanced hygiene measures in place, along with social distancing practices. More information can be found here. If you are required to self-isolate or quarantine, please be advised you cannot be accommodated at a YHA property until after this has been completed.

Hip, cool and very Melbourne, Melbourne Central YHA is a trendy travellers hostel located in the heart of the city. Close to all of Melbourne top attractions including the Eureka Skydeck, Melbourne Aquarium, Federation Square and a multitude of graffiti covered laneways filled to the brim with cafes, bars and restaurants, this hostel is the perfect base for your Melbourne adventures. 

*Please be advised there is currently a significant amount of construction around Melbourne Central YHA, which may cause accessibility disruptions and increased noise.

Melbourne Central YHA is a licenced venue and is unable to accommodate anyone under the age of 18 unless accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 21. Under 18s can only be accommodated in private rooms

Melbourne is famous for vintage trams and great coffee but don’t miss the secret bars found on a hidden laneways tour or the incredible views from the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel. During winter a Mt Buller Ski tour from Melbourne, a soak in the hot springs or a cheese and wine tasting tour in Yarra Valley are popular top Melbourne activities
