Location & Directions

We are ideally located in the heart of Melbourne, at 167-175 Franklin St. We’re at the top end of the CBD which means we are nice and quiet at night. The FREE tram zone and city train stations are only a short walk away.



You can take the train from Melbourne Central Station to Richmond Station (Cranbourne, Glen Waverley or Pakenham line). The trip takes under 10mins. It is then a short walk from there to Hisense Arena.



From the hostel head to Elizabeth St and take the route 19, 57 or 59 tram south to Flinders St. Then change trams to the route 70 towards Wattle Park and get off at stop 7C (right outside Hisense Arena).



Depending on traffic, a taxi will take between 15-20 minutes and cost approximately $12-$18. If you are travelling with 3 or 4 people this can be a cheaper option than paying separately.
