We booked a private twin room & opened the door to a cell like bunk bed hideous space! To make matters worse we were at the traffic end of the building with a security light shining into our room. "Inmates" would congregate at the top of the stairs & chat disturbing your sleep, & at 2am on the second night... More

I usually stay in hostels when I come to Melbourne because I like the atmosphere and meeting new people and travellers that have interesting stories to share. That's more what I pay for, a bed for the night and the hostel as a social hub to have a chat to people in the morning. This was facilitated at the nunnery... More

Stayed here for 1 night and that was enough. As for opening the front door, had to push the buzzer but as no-one was in reception had to wait for someone to exit to be let in. Now once inside was blasted by this head banging music (noise!!!) which could even be heard upstairs. As for the room, very basic.... More

I visited way back in year 2000. I chose it for the location. Nice homely place to stay. The room I had was quite nice. Breakfast was just average, price reasonable as compared to others of the same type

I was looking for a reasonably priced B & B/guest house in Melbourne and after reading the reviews the Nunnery seemed to fit the bill. On arrival I was told I would be in the guest house portion of the house as arranged and not the hostel - unfortunately there didn't seem to be a great deal of difference between... More

Walking distance central Fitzroy had a great location. Good social events every week, including a pub crawl to meet fellow hostel mates. Felt very cosy in the TV room, warm fire and comfy couches . all in all good times

It's been a while since I stayed at the nunnery in Fitzroy, but I never forgot about this hostel. Even though I've been to many other hostels since then it is still my favourite. It's a wonderful place with a unique, very welcoming and international atmosphere. Some of my closest friends are travellers I met at the nunnery. (The location... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Nunnery last weekend and absolutely loved the whole experience. Upon check in we were warmly greeted and then to our delight were told we had been upgraded to a private twin share room next door, which was awesome. It's really affordable and a stone throw away from the CBD not to mention Brunswick... More
