Sure, the Christmas break might be over – however, you shouldn’t let that stop you from taking a much-deserved family holiday (especially while school is still out!)

When was the last time you went on a family trip? Too long ago, we’ll bet!

So, what’s stopping you? Chances are, time and money.

While we can’t help with the first, our hostel in Melbourne can certainly help with the second!

Our family-friendly hostel provides clean, safe, and affordable accommodation in Melbourne for families of all shapes and sizes.

If you’re looking to travel in Melbourne without it costing an arm and a leg, we’re the place to stay!

Why choose our Melbourne hostel for your next family holiday?

If you’re looking for cheap accommodation in Melbourne, we here at Urban Central have your back.

Our hostel in Melbourne is the perfect landing point for your family and the ideal base of operations for your stay in our city.

And there are a couple of reasons why…

Affordable accommodation in Melbourne

Besides the airfare, what’s the most expensive part of travelling?


Travelling with multiple members of the family can quickly put a strain on your holiday or travel budget. Add in the markup that comes with staying in the CBD, and it’s little wonder that accommodation in Melbourne costs so much!

Luckily for you, our hostel in Melbourne offers an affordable alternative – one that’s lighter on your budget.

You’ll receive a complete room package, with a luxury king sized bed (or two king single beds), as well as a bunk bed. We’ll even provide additional roll away beds upon request!

Just because it’s more affordable doesn’t mean you’ll be sacrificing comfort and privacy.

In our Family Room, for example, you’ll also have your own private ensuite bathroom, television, tea and coffee making facilities and air conditioning.

Essentially, you get everything that you’d get in a hotel room – only, without the exorbitant price!

A range of flexible room options

Our Family Room is a great way of accommodating your family during your stay in Melbourne. However, it isn’t the only option!

Our hostel in Melbourne offers a range of different room options, allowing us to accommodate any family in comfort.

For example, we also offer twin rooms that are perfect for two singles. If you want, you can have your kids settle in one, while you and your spouse stay in a double room with a king sized bed for some space (just what you need after a long day seeing the sights!)

We help you get the most out of your stay in Melbourne

Are you visiting from interstate or overseas? If this is the first time you’re visiting Melbourne and you’re feeling a little bit lost, our staff are happy to help you out!

Each of our staff members are intimately familiar with the sights around Melbourne. And not just the big attractions, either – we can point out lesser-known things to do, as well as some hidden places to grab a bite.

We even run walking tours to help you get to know the city!

Friendly staff

You don’t need to be hesitant to approach our team for assistance – they are kid-friendly, polite and extremely knowledgeable about the sights and sounds of the city!

We make it our mission to help you feel at home even while you’re away from home.

On top of all this, our front desk is open 24-hours a day – we’re ready to provide help for all your queries.

Close to public transport

You’ve spent hours lost, trying to find your way around.

Your feet are sore because you didn’t research your public transport options, and you have no clue how you’re going to get to all the places on your itinerary.

Worse, the kids are tired from so much walking, and are starting to complain!

How many parents out there can empathise with this?

We aren’t just close to many of the city’s attractions – our hostel in Melbourne is also perfectly placed to help you get around!

Our location near all of the city’s major transport hubs makes getting around more convenient than ever – especially if you don’t have a rental car.

Our Melbourne hostel is:

All of this gives your family easy access to the beach, restaurants, entertainment and shopping that the whole family can enjoy.

Think less about getting around, and more about enjoying your holiday!

A true family-friendly hostel

Hostels get a bit of a bad rap, if you ask us.

All too many assume that they’re dingy, cheap places suitable only to backpackers, and not families. Others assume that all hostels are party hostels, characterised by booze, loud music, cramped rooms and non-stop partying.

While many hostels do fit this mould, our hostel in Melbourne isn’t one of them!

Our team strives to create a clean, family-friendly atmosphere for your holiday in Melbourne.

Stay with Urban Central, and you won’t have to worry about loud music keeping you and the kids up. We also enforce strict no alcohol and tobacco policies.
