    The Melbourne is a classic case of not judging a book by its cover. When I first saw it, I thought it looked totally sketchy: Sitting on a run-down block, facing a down and out parking lot, next to a random Mexican bus company office, with metal bars on the doors and some of the windows. But once inside, I was really surprised. Though not warm and fuzzy, the Melbourne is super clean, with mostly private rooms that have ceiling fans, mini-fridges and sinks (there also are a couple dorm rooms). All the bathrooms are shared (and did I mention spotlessly clean?) plus there’s a basically equipped communal kitchen. Free WiFi runs throughout the place and there’s a huge bulletin board with goings-on around town. The cheery reception area also has two computers that are free for guests to use. Best of all, though, the Melbourne is 2 blocks from downtown, which means easy access to bars, restaurants, museums…the heart of the Denver. Be sure to show your ID if you’re a student or a senior—discounts are given to both.

    My visit here started with an extremely drunk homeless guy haranguing me across the street from the hostel entrance, so I was a bit wary from the get-go. But once inside, you immediately see why it’s so popular with backpackers and budget travelers (who make up most of the clientele, as opposed to long-term residents). Tidy single-sex dorms and large private rooms (none with bathroom) open onto a long bright hallway. Shared bathrooms and showers are on one end and a shared kitchen on the other. There’s no lounge or TV room; instead the kitchen and a handful of armchairs at that end of the hallway serve as the de facto hang-out spot. You’re right across from the light rail, which you can take south into downtown or north into Denver’s historic Five Points area. Best of all, it feels clean, safe and quiet, the occasional street encounter notwithstanding.
