When you say around Melbourne, do you mean close in or out. I stayed in St Kilda road which is so close to the city centre by tram. It is the hotel Charsfield, good value and the website is www.hotelcharsfield.com

You could try www.hotelclaremont.com which is very reasonably priced, not far from the city and in the middle of lots of shops and restaurants. Close to the tram and train as well. The Ibis Hotel near Queen Victoria Market is on the budget side too.

You could also try www.jasons.com.au and key in 'backpackers'. Suburbs close to the city include South Melbourne, Albert Park, Carlton, Fitzroy, South Yarra, East Melbourne.

I stay at the Le-Meridien in Melb because they give you real eggs for breakfast and the pillows are just the best. Its also very quiet, but it may be booked out. Try it though , you will not be dissapointed. Radisson on Flagstaff is also very good. Lots of times you can get in there when the others are booked. Breakfasts there are really good and they have a friendly bar the locals use.
