    Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways

    throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
    never quite know what you’ll find around the next

    Response from YHA_Backpacker | Property representative |
    Hi Dayle All private rooms have towels provided. Guests in multi share rooms need to either bring their own towel, or can hire one at reception for a small charge. Looking forward to having you to stay soon.

    Hi This hostel has a 24 hour reception, so Mad is correct - you can check in any time that suits you after 1pm. Check out times at all Australian YHA hostels is 10am. We look forward to having you to stay!
