Probably the best hostel in Australia, especially for the price and location.


I enjoyed my stay , but I feel like the staff did their bare minimum and weren't always very accomadating. Above all though , a great place !

As a first-time traveler, I would NOT recommend the Nunnery. Nobody talked to each other or made efforts to become friends - each kept to their own. The bottom floor had no bathroom facilities, so I had to climb the stairs each time I wanted to shower or pee. Not ideal. My room was located 10 meters from the tram line, where the noise would keep me awake at night. The kitchen is absolutely tiny, and during meal-times people would have to squeeze to get anywhere near the sinks or stove.
