Bozo Backpacker guestsWe are a new backpacker’s hostel which opened in February, 2009. As a small backpacker’s we have been able to create a friendly, homely environment in which all of our guests can relax and use as a base for exploring Melbourne and other areas in Victoria.

Our guests enjoy staying with us because Bozo Backpacker:

is friendly and welcoming – it really is your ‘home from home’. Our guests are our family.

is clean and colourful – the rooms are charming and colourful and our staff work hard to keep the dorm rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen squeaky clean.

has a great location and great facilities – centrally located in Melbourne with a fully equipped kitchen, free lockers, free ADSL Internet, wireless, free use of bicycles …

Even though we’ve only been open a short time we are already getting return customers as well as new customers who have heard great things about us on the backpacker grapevine!

Why are we called BOZO?


BozoYou’ve all heard of Bozo the clown.

Our owner goes by the name of Ozzi, but his real name is actually Bozo. Also, some say he is very much like Bozo – funny, friendly and has a big nose!
