Coffee Palace Backpackers, Melbourne: 189 reviews and 6 photos

I have just spent three weeks at one of the funkiest hostels i have been to in my travels. Coffee palace is a great fun hostel with plenty of activities organised by staff.
New owners have come in and you can tell they really care and love the place. Always smiling and helpful and ready to take you on their many pub crawls or even to a game of aussie rules footy. Anthony the manager is a great fella and he got me some work as well. Lots of character, funky ,retro and fun recommend it big time.

Unique Qualities: Great common area with cool lamp shades a good homely feel. Roof top terrace. Good games room with pool table, pin ball and they dont mind you having a beer and smoke in the games room. It has about 10 bars and cool cafes within 100mtres and a 5 minute walk to beach. It is a really old buliding but heaps of character. If only the walls could talk
