Great place to stay, friendly and helpful staff always going the extra mile to make you feel welcome. No words can describe how much this place meant to me, everyone always made me feel like it was a second home. Thank you to everyone who worked there for all the cornflakes(!) and chat :-) If you are staying in Melbourne... More

I stayed in a double room for two night, and we're expecting two singles ( a twin ) and found a bunk bed. The television had one channel that worked and the door crashed into the wall everytime you opened it. There was only one bathroom per floor, so if you were desperate for the toilet and someone was in... More

The location of this hostel is fantastic, you can take a tram from Southern Cross station directly to the door. It's close to loads of trendy bars and so easy to get into the city centre too. Staff are super helpful. Showers and toilets are clean for hostel standards and it's a fairly quiet hostel after 10pm (no partying in... More

The Nunnery is a cheap hostel (for Melbourne's standard, of course) very clean and cozy. The staff is very friendly and there are one amazing event every day (barbecue for dinner, pancakes for breakfast, film night with popcorn...). The kitchen is very clean, maybe too small but everything work well. The location is perfect: you can reach the city center... More

We booked 2 double rooms in the Guest House. We were fully aware that as an old, historic building it would not be the same experience as a purpose built hotel, so the small size of the rooms was not unexpected, but we had two single beds and they were not anchored so kept sliding around. The bathroom facilities were... More

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
