Hostelworld says

19th century charm meets the freshness of modern day Melbourne in this totally unique hostel. Situated in super hip Fitzroy and only a short 10min stroll to the city, The Nunnery is a beautiful old building with exquisite shared and private rooms as well as lounge areas for chilling and courtyards for hanging out… in the sunshine! It's great for travellers looking to experience the best of Melbourne's live music, café's and bars located in and around Fitzroy as well as the famed laneway nightlife of the city. The Nuns (staff) help create a relaxed and social home away from home, offering FREE breakfast every day (pancakes Sundays) as well as FREE weekly pub crawls, soup nights and BBQ's with wine also supplied. The Nunnery - it's Heavenly!

The Nunnery says

I think what makes us extra special is the extras we offer our guests. We've got free breakfast every morning plus free events all week like movie night on Tuesdays, homemade soup on Wednesdays, pub crawls on Thursdays and wine and nibbles or BBQ on Fridays.
We really aim to offer a unique experience; after all, our hostel was built in 1888 and for 60 years used to be an actual nunnery! We take pride in helping our guests enjoy the very best Melbourne has to offer.
The nearest main attractions are the Melbourne Museum and Melbourne Exhibition centre; personally, I recommend guests check out the bars, cafes and restaurants around nearby Brunswick Street and Smith Street.

Latest Review

" My third stay at the Nunnery, and it may be my last. Not to say it as drastically changed or anything. The staff are still awesome, such a great group of people, and the location is worth staying there for alone. Honestly, its just the beds that really need replacing, most of the under sheets are stained was well as the pillows. In a place that you make your own bed, this is an important issue. Thank you to the staff, and the great people I met over my two days there "
