"...more like a home than a hostel..." Central Melbourne Accommodation is Melbourne's smallest international hostel and definitely worth a visit. Central Melbourne Accommodation is a small, friendly More hostel that provides LONG TERM stays for international travellers. CMA is a 'boutique backpackers' that is exclusive to only 30 guests. Clean, comfortable dorms, single & double rooms. CMA is situated in the heart of exciting Richmond - Melbourne's cafe, restaurant and discount shopping district - only 10 minutes from the city centre and MCG, with the famous Melbourne trams within 50 metres. Laundry, TV, video and WiFi access. Free BBQ and off street parking. Friendly, local staff can give you employment assistance and have free tickets for Melbourne's biggest events like Australian Open tennis (conditions apply). Being close to major hospitals, CMA is ideal for nurses looking to work in Melbourne. Being a small hostel, reception is not open 24 hours per day. It is best to arrive 9am-11am or 5pm-7pm. As CMA specialises in long term stays, always ask about the weekly or monthly special rates and save $$$!! The longer you stay - the less you pay!! Less
