Great location in cool Fitzroy, a couple blocks from free tram (or stop right next to hostel if you want to pay), across from Museum, walk to most sites or take Tram. Building beautiful, but rooms worn and bunk beds rackety. Must pay WIFI. Decent pillows/sheets, heater in room. Not all rooms have lockers. Shared bathrooms interesting set up but cold and could be cleaner. Breakfast is cereal & bread. Some residents not sociable & some rude talking loudly in hallways @midnight or singing @6am

The best hostel I've ever stayed in! I love the location, in Fitzroy but still close to the CBD. I love the building and concept. They really go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable, heaters in the room (winter), complimentary towels, social events around the hostel. Very good value for money. The staff are helpful and it's clean. The kitchen is a little small but people clean up after themselves and it's welcoming. Checkout is 11pm, nice! The kitchen needs some good cutting knives :)

Great building located next to one of the coolest streets in Melbourne! It seems like many people have become "part of the furniture" here... It was kind of strange that some people made "walls" around their beds by hanging up spare blankets, making the room feel not really friendly!

This place is perfect! Fitzroy has so much more character than the CBD and The Nunnery really embodies Fitzroy's charm. I kind of wish there were mattress protectors over the beds like they have in a lot of higher end hostels but that didn't bother me much as the bedding seemed pretty clean anyway. You can get a 7-day wifi pass for like $15 (none of the other good hostels have free wifi either). It's super easy to meet other people here even though most are long-term habitants.

Bed comfy, breakfast good. Common room comfy, very nice hostel. Too many long residents, which makes the vibe for meeting friends hard. I get it that they already drained out that passion for meeting people already but you still wanna meet friends when travel and live in hostel. Some people just don't wash their own dirty dishes, which is really annoying, makes the kitchen chaos. Though stuff works hard to maintain it.

Stayed here for 6 nights last week - really nice hostel, very homely feel and met some nice people - may recommend it to more to people who are intending to stay a bit longer as there weren't loads of oppurtunities to meet others - especially for a less outgoing traveller .. Altogether really nice stay (make the most of the free brekkie/bbq and soup!)

All in all a nice hostel. Lots of long term residence, who make the place a little Unwelcoming for short term travelers.

Squeaky cheap bunk beds, too few showers, full of 'long term residents' who want to keep to themselves, no personal power points, kitchen is too small, hostel is generally an old cramped building, bedding and sheets are cheap. However well located (Fitzroy is nice), good common area, nice staff. I have been to around 100 hostels over 10 years, so I have some experience in what makes a good hostel.
