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 outââ'¬¦ 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, FREE weekly pub crawls, soup nights and BBQ's with wine also supplied. The Nunnery - it's Heavenly!

Property Description

Overview
The Nunnery serves up the freshness of modern-day Melbourne with a side helping of 19th-century charm. What's the name about, you ask? Well, our Georgian building was built in 1888 and was an actual nunnery for 60 years. Now we're a small, unique, friendly hostel in the heart of Fitzroy. The Nuns (our staff) are all local Melbournians who can direct you to their favourite hotspots in town and help you with any questions about the hostel.

Location
Fitzroy is Melbourne's hipster hub, which means you only need to pop around the corner to find plenty of bars and shops. It'll take you 2 minutes to walk to Brunswick Street, and Melbourne Museum and Carlton Gardens are just across the road. We're on the main tram route, 96, but you can walk into the city centre in just over 10 minutes. From Tullamarine Airport take the Skybus to Southern cross station, from there we are about 20 minutes on the 96 tram.

Rooms and Dorms
Whatever your budget, we've got mixed, female-only dorms and private rooms to suit.

Extras and activities
Free WiFi.
We also have hair dryers, straighteners, myki cards and sporting equipment to rent, just leave some ID.

Facilities
Staying in? Cook up a treat in our fully equipped kitchen, or swing by our lounge, balcony or courtyard areas to chill/socialise with other travellers. We also have coin operated Laundry services at your convenience.

Reception is open 8:00am 9:30pm with Mother Superior available outside these hours to let you in.

    Absolutely LOVED our stay at the Nunnery. Myself and two other girls had just moved from Canada and wanted to meet some people while searching for housing. The staff knew we had a lot of luggage, so they actually went as far as to upgrade us to a larger room close to the entrance. Our room was extremely clean and comfortable, the common areas were welcoming and cozy, and the staff was always kind. Only note: make sure to bring some layers if you're coming in the winter- it gets chilly!

    Really nice hostel. Chilled vibes and decent rooms. The kitchen is a bit small and can get crowded but other than that I really enjoyed my stay here!

    Located near a lot of restaurants and bars are not a far walk from the city. A lot of friendly travellers and a very fun atmosphere. It wasn’t very clean in the rooms or bathrooms and some of the showers were broken but it was not a big issue being quite cheap anyway.

    I enjoyed my stay at The Nunnery. Met lots of awesome people and the staff were really nice. Super central to heaps of bars and eateries in Fitzroy and easy access via tram to the CBD. The only downside was that the bathrooms were a bit dirty. Other than that, all good!

    Fairly nice place only spoiled by the people who were there. Some strange characters but I guess that’s the lottery with dorms

    Four people in one cramped room with heater on all night and stunk of socks. Booked for week and left after one day. No ventilation in the room the smell of socks was stifling.

The Nunnery says

I think what makes us extra special is the extras we offer our guests.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. Jacqui, Assistant Manager
