Great location, an easy walk to the CBD. Excellent free breakfast and good kitchen facilities. Very clean room and same for the bathrooms. Would definitely recommend staying here.


Nice house to stay, a little out the city center. As a female traveler i would next time choose a place more in the center but the place itself is very nice. Very friendly staff!!!


The dorm was really dirty. In all other hostels I have stayed at so far the floor got cleaned once a day and so did the bathroom. I have spent five nights at the Nunnery's and that hasn't happened once. It was dirty when I had arrived and even more disgusting when I left.


I had a super time here. Everything was great - other guests, rooms, location, bathroom, communal areas, atmosphere. The only hostel I stayed in in 5 weeks to offer a free towel and breakfast. Staff really friendly and helpful. Everywhere was nice a spacious. Only down sides were the bed were a bit creeky and the kitchen was too small.


Really nice hostel, great vibe, big and clean. Arrived on a great day free breakfast and free BBQ dinner.


Still a nice hostel. Tried their guesthouse the second night. Very swanky and a bit more quiet. Could use a timer or a sign, so people don't spend half hours in the bathroom/toilets. Or a toilet without a shower. And still needs better aircon than a ceiling fan and open windows.


Easy enough to get to just a little out of the CBD but close to plenty of other shops, bars, etc. in Brunswick. Nice hostel all round to stay in.


Always something happening here, everyone really friendly, staff absolutely lovely and a nice, relaxed atmosphere. I got upgraded to the guesthouse which was beautiful, I didn't want to leave! The hostel itself is pretty nice too, though. The only thing that did let it down for me is the kitchen being tiny considering the size of the place, but there's so many cheap places to eat nearby it didn't seem worth cooking anyway :)
