“Photographer's delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

The place is very close to the Flinders Street Station and possesses the most beautiful street-arts of Melbourne. The place is an absolute delight for photographers. Anyone with a good hankering for awesome photos, should give it a try.

“Always changing Melbourne Street Art - Touristy but still worth a look”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

I've been here many times as I love good street art. Its always different and ever changing. It is certainly touristy and "commercial" now but the quality of work is always good and the reason why its no secret! I rate it 5 stars just because its free and so easy to get to as most tourists will be within 5 min walk at some stage. Its just opposite Federation Square, so if you're a tourist and are at Fed Sq then this is a must see. This is a safe place most of the time. Not sure really late at night/morning but no issue early evening as always ppl around and so close to Fed Sq.

There's always people walking up and down the alley normally with camera and many photo walk groups end up here. Its not manic busy, but you will find it hard to be here alone.

If you love street art would must see this. Although I'm sure there's "cooler" alleys in Melbourne to see.

“Check it out if you're around the area.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Overly hyped street that has graffiti strewed on the wall. Urban art which i can't really appreciate. I managed to catch an artist at work during my visit. Do check it out only if you're near the area!

“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

When you are in Melbourne, do not miss Hosier Lane and be sure to bring your camera!!
Best seen by day for the best photos (and safety).
The tapas place, MoVida Restaurant is on Hosier, but in my opinion there are better places to eat nearby. Just down the street from Federation Square.
So great.
Enjoy!!
