Yes, we’re close to St Kilda beach but facilities at Barkly Backpackers is something our guests comment on most.

Our common room has been a hub for guests from day one. They all seem to love the relaxed but social atmosphere. It’s quiet enough to use our free WiFi to catch up online but social enough to hang out and get to know some new people.

The reception is located in the common area and is open from 7am until midnight on weekdays and 7am to 1am on weekends (Friday and Saturday night).
