The space

Medley Hall is a residential college of The University of Melbourne. What this means is that during the University academic year, our rooms are occupied by students. In the break times (Dec to mid Feb and July) our rooms are vacant and from $70 per night can live in one of these rooms and located perfectly and accessible by foot to all of Melbourne's favorite spots.

Just around one corner is the bistro life of Carlton and The Melbourne Museum and the the University of Melbourne, and around the other are the Exhibition Gardens, the Central Business District, Chinatown, theatres and night life etc.

The recent renovations and major building works at Medley Hall includes a lift to help shift between the fully renovated three levels of bedrooms (some doubles), a tv lounge room adjoined to a fully functional kitchen allowing you to cook your own food if you wish, and a modern and beautiful three story high glass atrium. The atrium ties the new with the old, a magnificent Victorian Italianate building, "Benvenuta", where the dining hall, formal lounge and music rooms are situated.

Each room is heated and contains a desk, a long single bed or double bed and wardrobe space. Towels and linen are provided. Communal kitchenettes, showers and toilets, are on each floor. Coin operated laundry facilities are located on the ground floor for guest use and include driers but we also have hanging space for drying your clothes naturally on the roof top terrace, which also brings with it magnificent views of the city of Melbourne. Internet facilities are available to casual guests.

In accordance with The University of Melbourne policy, smoking is not permitted at Medley Hall.

Please note there is a 3 night minimum.

Effie was nice and responsive to messages. I booked for 4 nights but stayed for two. Stovetop in the kitchen was a bit difficult to operate. There was no staff on site (Sunday) but I found someone to help. Very nice and modern facility. Several pianos, tv/game room, laundromat, big kitchen (with all necessary utensils and cooking items), and very quiet. My room has a twin/double size bed. More than enough space for 1 person. Clean room but dusty shelves. Clean individual bathrooms. The shower was hot enough. An elevator is available. There is access to a fridge, microwave, toaster, and dining area on each floor. 10 min walk to the free tram stop on Nicholson st, which can take you to southern cross station if you need to use the skybus. Located right next to the beautiful Carlton gardens. Plenty of restaurants and grocery stores around the corner. Close walk to CBD. I highly recommend Medley Hall as a place for accommodation.

I had a very satisfying stay at Medley Hall. The room and bathroom facilities were clean and comfortable. Medley Hall was a pleasantly quiet place in late January, which was just what I was looking for. Effie was friendly and helpful during the checking in/out process. Will certainly return in the future.

The room was a cell about 2.5 times the size of the bed with concrete floor and no sink but a heater. However, the heater went off and cold about 8:30pm and came on at 6am which in a very cold (0°C nights) is very critical. Office opened at 9:30 by which time I was off to work and checking if I did something wrong with heater. No, once on, my workmates assured me, it should stay on. The morning after the second night was the worst and critical as I had to give a speech to media and a high powered audience. This is a room in a student dorm run by Uni of Melbourne: so really not the personal AirBnB that I was keen to experience. (i have stayed in student dorms around the world and know what to expect._ My fault for not reading the description carefully but I rather thought that the spirit of AirBnB was personal not corporate, like this.

Response from Medley:
Robert, I am sorry to hear about your experience not being one that you envisioned. Please note I have read the description of what we are offering and the photos on the net, so I am surprised that this did not meet you your expectations. I did mention that it is a student residence owned by the University of Melbourne and that they were single rooms that are being offered with 5 bathrooms on each floor. Re the heating, this is on till 10.30pm and starts at around 6.00am. The rooms have double glazed windows and keep the room warm even when the heating is off. We haven't received any complaints about this before. I understand this place is obviously not what you intended and it's not for everyone. For your information I will not be taking it off Airbnb, because the reviews and feedback received indicate that it is a worthwhile place to stay in Melbourne where accessibility is at your doorstep and the cost is affordable to solo travelers who are not interested in staying in hostel are sharing a room with others. Thanks for taking the time to review and sorry we didn't live up to your expectations.

This is a residential student college. We have 55 rooms available to be rented out to guests during the mid year break and the end of year when the students depart. We are located a short stroll away from the city and the bustling cafe life of famous Lygon Street. The rate of accommodation is for a single room, equipped with bedding and towel. There are 5 showers/toilets on each floor and a kitchenette too. It is clean, fresh and modern simple accommodation surrounded by a beautiful mansion which is heritage listed and close to everything important to visitors to Melbourne. Happy to provide you with more information. Just email me.
