It's a shame I feel like I have to give the place 2 stars. The staff were generally helpful, it has a perfect location, the kitchen is adequate, and I found the info pamphlets...More
The Nunnery is a hidden gem in the heart of Fitzroy, with more of a feel of a big house than a hostel. Although without free wifi, the hostel is cosy, friendly and comfortable, with our four bed room being clean and perfect for our...More

Awesome place to stay, with possibly the most helpful staff and information available to make your stay in Fitzroy/Melbourne amazing. Great location, close to many bars, cafes, restaurants for literally any kind of cuisine you could imagine. Public transport is close, you can also walk...More
Excellent location, quite cheap, we lived in 8 beds dormitory. Room was quite clean and big. Offers free breakfast and once a week they serve pancakes which was amazing. Nice backpackers crowd and you can have fun meeting with them.

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 neighborhood that embraces both old and new.
