Before staying at Collingwood accomodation I was unfortunately subject to paying for United Backpackers hostel and its staff that stole from my kitchen bag.. Fortunately I had booked a new hostel shortly following this and settled for Collingwood accommodation. Upon arrival, the hostel felt more of a home than a business which was immediately a more positive vibe. Everyone was... More

Asthmatics/those averse to smoke beware. Smoking is encouraged here. There is no common space to enjoy if you actually care about your health and being able to breathe. This is just unacceptable to me personally, and the reason for the low rating. (The owner is welcome to this choice, but I really feel it should be made clear on hostel... More

Anti smoking activists who hate cats probably would not like our hostel, however, most guests enjoy the company of our 2 cats and do make use of the extensive outdoor courtyard and balconies to smoke rather than be put out onto the street like a leper. More

Awesome laid back hostel with nice honest staff. Make yourself at home-feeling. Feels more like a houseshare then a hostel and everyone is really nice and says Good morning in the morning etc. Free Wifi and use of computers which we really needed to plan our trip to New Zealand! Great price also. Best hostel so far actually.

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
