THE BEST LOCATION IN TOWN!
When it comes to the location of Melbourne Backpackers accommodation it's no secret ours is the best! Make United Backpackers your home and you will be staying directly opposite the iconic Flinders Street Station, 50m from famous landmark Federation Square and just a one minute walk to the beautiful Yarra River. You couldn't be more central! We also just happen to be located on the funkiest and most vibrant laneway in Melbourne, Degraves Street!
WE LOVE QUIRKY & CREATIVE
Melbourne is famous for its bustling laneway culture and is known as one of the street art capitals of the world! When you visit Melbourne you can spend days exploring the maze of laneways filled with street art, cool people, yum cafes, underground bars, buskers and funky shops. We're bringing the Melbourne vibe inside with quirky décor and artwork throughout the building. If you're an artist, blogger, photographer or have creative blood running through your veins and want to contribute, get in touch!
