8/10 Very good

As advertised
It is a decent accommodation in a hip area, close enough to CBD. It was good value and clean. My room was spacious but on the side where there is a really busy road, and the property is over a pub, so it was a bit noisy on the friday and saturday, but i used my earplugs and it was fine (the property also provides its own earplugs). A very pleasant stay

The sheets in the room smelled a little funny on arrival. However, I washed them and it was chilled. Otherwise, a lovely venue.

8/10 Very good

The Hosts were most helpful & congenial. Old premises but every effort is being undertaken to refresh & refurbish. Plenty of shared bathroom facilities & a kitchen - all very clean. Parking is IMPOSSIBLE & there should be more effort made to clarify this & point guests to the areas actually available, rather than random street parking, due to excessive Permit Zones, limited time frames available & worse CLEARWAYS !!!! Public transport is ideal with Brunswick Street tram service to/from the City. I would certainly go back there the next time I am on an imposed short-stay in Melbourne - Helene
