Lovely hostel, fantastic location, only issue was the bathroom-to-person ratio, bit short on toilets and showers.

Loved this hostel- it's like having a load of single beds laid out in an oldy worldy hotel room in a large mansion with high ceilings and beautiful large light fittings! We stayed in the second building, which is, I believe, where the nicer hostel rooms are. The common room is like a stately home living room with a TV and fireplace! Help yourself breakfast is good and the location is easy walking distance to the trendy Brunswick St area. Our shared bathroom was hotel-like

This hostel was really good.

Nice place to stay in Melbourne, especially a good value for money! Good breakfast in the mornings and FIFA 14 in the lounge - perfect! Very nice staff. Was staying in a pretty small 3 bed room without lockers or any cupboards though.

Nice big beds. The kitchen was tiny though and really really busy. We couldn't face cooking in it. Also a lot of people seem to be here long term so walking into kitchen was a small bit intimidating! Really nice old building though lots of character.

The guesthouse portion was probably the nicest drom I've ever stayed in.

Great variety of breads and spreads for breakfast and tea and coffee all day a bonus too. Kitchen a good place to meet people but rather on the small side in the cooking area and hostellers seem to be leaving dishes unwashed. Plenty of toilet and shower facilities. Dorms facing the road are not for light sleepers with noisy traffic most of the night. Maybe needed to clamp down on keeping the dorms tidier tho' still value for money. Reception folk were all helpful, thanks.

Great building with lots of atmosphere in an excellent location. Staff very friendly and helpful and plenty of showers around building which are hot and powerful. Good breakfast and plenty going on. Many residents long term and not interested in meeting new people and a large group had taken over the facilities a bit - could be a bit intimidating for some people, especially as kitchen quite small for number of people anyway. Wifi is not free. Not best place to meet travellers but good hostel.

Nice place to stay in Melbourne! Wonderful Interiour. You can meet people there but no only for partying. Free breakfast helps ;-) I enjoyed the stay very much. It is close to FItzroy which I liked most in Melbourne but also close to CBD. I would definitely recommend it.

The place is really cute.

In general everything it was really good, the only thing about security is that I left some food in the bridge and I didn't find it the next day, I didn't say anything in reception because it was my last day. Thanks

Messy room but that depends on the travelers ;-) Location is superb! Outside of the centre but there is a tram stop in less then 2min walking! And very close to a 'pubstreet' Single kitchen and breakfast was ok. Plenty of bread but poor quality.
