Things to do in Melbourne Metro YHA

Located in hip, funky North Melbourne, Melbourne Metro YHA is the perfect base for you to explore exciting Melbourne, just minutes walk from the famous Queen Victoria Markets and close to all the action of the CBD. North Melbourne is known for quirky bars featuring an array of cocktails made by hipster bartenders with man buns and luscious beards, divine eateries with Insta-worthy food that’ll get you all the likes and Mörk Hot Chocolate – hands down the best hot chocolate you’ll ever try. 

 

If you head in to the CBD, you’ll be spoilt for choice with where to eat, where to get your coffee and where to drink and have a good time. There’s rooftop bars, hole in the wall bars hidden down graffiti covered laneways, bars with standing room only, bars in the middle of the river, bars with video games and bars hidden behind bookcases. In case you can’t tell, Melbourne likes a good bar or two.

 

Melbourne is always busy, bustling and never goes quiet, even in the depths of winter. It’s famous for festivals (comedy, art, film – we could go on!), markets, gallery events, theatre, concerts, sporting events and so much more – you’ll never be bored in Melbourne. 

 

If do you need some inspiration, ask our staff – many have lived here for years and can help you experience Melbourne like a local.
