Spent two nights here. Easy to walk to the centre of Melbourne and plenty of bars and cafes just around the corner. Comfortable accommodation with great helpful staff. Would come back for my next stay in Melbourne
I stayed at a four bed room. I had no problems, the room had a heater, ventilator, lockers (you have to bring your own lock), a wardrobe, table, chair, night tables and a window looking to the east with no buildings around. The hostel its...More
Meant to spend just 2 nights here, ended up spending 4. It's a very cool funky place, with a lot of references to the building's last uses (hence the nunnery). Lots of free amenities like pancakes on sundays, bbq on fridays and free daily breakfast....More
Stayed here for 2 nights when we arrived into Melbourne. Rooms are cramped and beds very old but comfy enough. Seemed to be full of new comers to the city who were staying for weeks/months whilst they found work/accommodation so generally untidy around the place....More
I had heard great things about this place, and was so happy they lived up to the hype. From the moment I walked in the door, the staff bowled me over with friendly banter & willingness to help me enjoy my time in Melbourne.
Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots, hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic. Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll find little independent shops where local clothes and furniture designers display their wares. There are specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its
cuisine and art galleries, but if you want to buy an old-fashioned snooker table, there is a shop for that too. Small pubs still exist, tucked away on the corners of suburban side streets that serve up traditional Sunday roasts. Live music abounds, and the street performers play so hard you worry to tip them would ruin their concentration. Venture to the Spanish quarter on Johnston Street and you may even find street dancing. It is all happening amidst off-beat street murals and the shuffle of a very funky neighbourhood that embraces both old and new.
