Stayed probably for 2-3 months during the summer time. I liked Barkly because it felt like i lived with friends since there was so many long term backpackers. After a long day at work you came "home" and there was usually someone to share your...More

Highly recommend Barkly Backpackers. Matt, the owner of the hostel, works really hard to make sure everyone is taken care of. I stayed at Barkly over Christmas and the New Year, and I'm very glad I did. Matt put together a huge family Christmas barbecue...More

I'd been staying elsewhere whilst in Melbourne and as a friend was staying at this hostel decided to book a night there too. Very glad that I did! Very good location, clean, bright, big rooms. The little common room area has a great atmosphere and...More

St Kilda backpackers with great rates and a relaxed atmosphere. We know hostels & travel, and are focused on your time in our amazing city. Barkly Backpackers is located in the heart of St Kilda, one of ...More Melbourne's most famous suburbs which is known for its beach and nightlife. Arrive knowing that you won't have to worry about all night partying or dirty bathrooms. We know the best places to have a good time (outside the hostel) and are as concerned about somewhere clean to sleep as much as you are. The hostel is within 5 minutes of most St Kilda hotspots including the beach. Nearby trams can take you to the heart of the CBD in less than 20 minutes. All dorm rooms offer loads of natural light as well as space to move. In our common room you can sit comfortably and relax, use one of our (limited number of) computers, cook and enjoy free WiFi and tea & coffee. All guests have access to the building at all times. Within walking distance you'll find St Kilda beach with its palm-lined boardwalk, beach and water activities, pier & breakwater, extensive walking trail, and bars, restaurants & cafes. A short stroll will find you on Acland Street, known for it's mouth-watering cake shops. From here you can walk along The Esplanade past some of Melbourne's great institutions including Luna park and The Espy (Esplanade Hotel). Less
