This hostel is the sort of place you're either going to love or hate. The sense of community between the residents staying there long term is incredible. The people are gorgeous, laid back and all seem to get along seamlessly. The atmosphere was the best part of my stay. As for the location, I had never been to Collingwood, and... More

The Collingwood Backpackers; an eclectic mix of international backpackers and Australians that are predominately long-term is a backpackers that sets the standards of what should be expected of hostels in Melbourne. Just minutes walk away from the ever popular streets of Brunswick and Smith for Melbournians and the generosity provided by the team at Lentils As Anything at the Abbotsford... More

The most laid back place I've ever been to! It's unexplainable, but the human atmosphere in that place makes you want to never leave! Really really nice people! You need to be laid back, flexible and open-minded to fit in, and basically not care too much about the cleanliness of the place, but that's a minor detail only... STRONGLY recommend... More

You feel really welcome. Everybody in the hostel is nice and they all hang out together. Almost everybody stays here for long term. You can't compare the hostel with other hostels. This is more like a home! I really enjoyed staying here and would recommend it for people who want to stay for a longer period in Melbourne.

I believe Paul makes this place what it is. An ex lawyer and traveller with the best attitude to a hostel and a ridiculously dry sense if humour. When I got my visa through for NZ at 2pm he let me check out and refunded the night I never used. Free wi fi and free computers which I find a... More

I stayed here last month and you will either love this place or hate it. It's full of smokers so being a non smoker this was the difficult thing. People are allowed to smoke in all rooms. The people are friendly, a bit strange some of them.but overall i was made to feel welcome. There are people that have being... More

Stayed here in May 2012 and had a good experience. Paul, the owner, is hilarious and sets the tone for a welcoming, relaxed hostel. There are many longtermers there but they were very welcoming and inclusive of the people only there for a few days. It really felt like I was hanging out at a friend's house rather than at... More

Ok, at first glance this place looks old, a bit dirty and not really organized for travellers. And, yes, you may end up waiting for someone at the reception for a long time. But. This is a place for long term guests and you can see how the atmosphere is homey and chilled out. It's like living in a shared... More

It's not the cleanest of hostels and on first impressions it doesn't seem that great of a place in general, but it soon grows on you. The owner is really nice and helpful...if a little crazy sometimes. There's a great atmosphere. Although there are no proper lock systems on the bedroom doors you feel secure as there is a code-entry... More
