Quirky hostel full of character. Shame that the kitchen and courtyard areas were just too small. And rooms were stuffy and uncomfortably warm.


Best hostel I have stayed at yet!


Staff could be more friendly, helping with a smile for example :) Had a nice stay though, clean hostel, good facilities. Thanks!


Quirkier hostel with nice atmosphere, slightly crowded kitchen at times, but there were lots of places to hang around and meet people and the staff were professional, friendly and helpful. Bathroom could have been cleaner but fine overall! Great location near Fitzroy and opposite a lovely park, easy to walk or get the tram into Melbourne.


There was no security locket as show in pictures.

Good wifi (you have to pay for it, but that seems to be the norm in Australia), good breakfast. Really short walk to a whole bunch of great bars and restaurants, and about a 20 minute walk to the CBD.


It was a great hostel and for the most part, everyone was really nice. There are a lot of people staying long-term and they kind of take over the rooms they're in, which is a little frustrating, but there's always something fun going on and the staff went out of their way to make me feel welcome and help with tours, etc


All good, no complaints at all.

Great free brekkie, decent rooms, cool atmosphere. Good location, felt safe with my valuables. Would stay again!


I love the nunnery! Best hostel i stayed in australia! Its a very nice area around the hostel and the people who stay there are really nice. Because the hostel is not extremely big you get to know a lot of people. Next time in Melbourne will definetely come back.
