Hostels in Melbourne

I am looking to explore Melbourne between the dates of 8th November and 12th November,

I am looking to stay in a hostel ideally close to St. Kilda but to be honest im not that bothered,

my budget is max $40-$50 a night, I intend on doing a sky dive and learning to surf, then just milling about.

I am travelling by myself so meeting other people is a must...

I don't know of any but I noticed there are two hostels in St Kilda that are listed under the Visit Victoria website (the official website for Melbourne) so they must be pretty ok. In fact, the Base Hostel in St Kilda were apparently rated by Lonely Planet's Blue Guide one of the top 10 Hippest Hostels in the world!

see: http://www.visitvictoria.com/

The Base Backpackers hotel is actually sitting as number 3 on the Trip Advisor accommodation reviews.

You can also look for hostels are wotif.com (like a last minute accommodation website).

Try YHA, the biggest and most organised (and not for profit!) hostel provider in Australia...

I agree, YHA are excellent but I believe they don't have a hostel in St Kilda.
