This has been the second time I have stayed here and I loved it immensely.
The staff are easy going and the place is a short half hour walk (if that) to the CBD.
The amenities were nice and clean.

There was was many emotions and feelings running through my head when I found that we had been moved to The Nunnery. This was because I had never stayed at a back packers/hostel before.

There are many aspects of this hostel that far exceeded my expectations. The building itself is beautiful, the location cannot be beat, the beds are comfortable and the rooms are (generally) clean, there are areas where you can get away (patio, balcony, etc) and some...More
You won't get a good night sleep. In the very early hours the staff allow loud gatherings in outdoor spaces. There is lots of yelling by drunk people near 3am mid-week. It is not worth staying here. It'll ruin your next day.
I stayed here for 3 nights with friends & overall enjoyed my stay. My only complaint was that we were put in a room full of backpackers that were living at the hostel long term so the room was messy (open packets of food &...More
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.
