Accommodation for school groups

  • Overnight excursions
  • School camps
  • Competitions
  • School concerts

There are many reasons you may find yourself staying in the city with your students. And in each of these situations, you’ll need to find affordable school group accommodation. Preferably, a place that’s close to the action, that has space for large groups, and most importantly, doesn’t stretch the budget.

Luckily, our hostel in Melbourne is just what you’re looking for!

Located in Southbank, we’re close to all the city’s main attractions. No matter what your school is in the city for, we’re close to it – as well as Melbourne’s extensive public transport network!

Accommodation for sports groups

As Australia’s sport capital, there’s no shortage of sporting events going on in Melbourne. Whether you’re coming down with a small army of fellow supporters or you need a place for your team to stay between matches, our hostel in Melbourne is the place for you.

We offer affordable accommodation for sports groups.

Best of all, we allow you to keep everyone under the one roof, allowing you to celebrate (or commiserate) your result together.

Why choose our Melbourne hostel?

Especially when there are so many accommodation options out there for school and sport groups alike?

Flexible accommodation options

Your group might be dozens of students or fans – in other cases, it may only be a handful of people, like a small performance group. To accommodate for this (pun intended!), you need to choose a place that offers flexible accommodation options – one that can host you, whether you’re bringing over a large group, or just a handful of people.

Here’s something you might not know: our Melbourne hostel isn’t just dorms and bunk beds!

We offer a range of different accommodation options just for situations like this:

Just tell us what you need, and we’ll accommodate for you!


Here’s something else that sets our hostel in Melbourne apart from the rest: our focus on comfort and privacy!

Most have a reputation for cramming beds into rooms like sardines.

Not ours.

The most people we’ll EVER put to a room is four, guaranteeing your comfort. Not only that, each occupant also gets their own locker, safeguarding their belongings.

We’ve got one of the best spots in Melbourne

Our hostel in Melbourne is the perfect place for school and sports groups alike. And that’s in large part thanks to the prime real estate our Melbourne hostel occupies.

We’re conveniently located:

  • Right next to MCEC
  • Next to a tram stop
  • Walking distance to the free tram zone
  • A short walk away from Southern Cross Station

Not only that, but we’re also close to many of the city’s museums and sporting arenas!

Get everything your group needs

We’ve got all of the hostel standards like:

  • Kitchen facilities
  • Bathroom facilities
  • Communal spaces

On top of that however, we also have some things that we KNOW are going to appeal to sport and school groups.

For sport groups: we’ve got our very own on-site bar, staffed by some of the best bar staff in the city. It’s the perfect place to go for drinks after a win (or a loss).

And for school groups, we have on-site parking for coaches and school buses. We can even set you up with a custom solution such as an entire floor for your students if you want the added security and privacy! Please get in touch with us when you’re booking so we can accommodate your needs.

Clean and safe accommodation for everyone

As a school coordinator, we know how important student safety is to you. Just because we offer cheap accommodation in Melbourne, doesn’t mean that we skimp on security. In addition to the personal lockers we mentioned above, our building is also fitted with complete CCTV coverage.

Not only that, but we also use security swipe key systems for our entrances, lifts and even individual rooms. All of this ensures that your students are safe, and that you’re upholding your duty of care.
