The Nunnery Accommodation Reviews


Perfect for spoiling yourself but at a budget price, The Nunnery's wide range of accommodation styles are spread over 3 separate buildings, catering to both dormitory traveller and those wanting the privacy of their own room. The two Victorian main buildings host small and large dormitories and private rooms, a lounge with comfortable club sofas, fireplace, tv & dvd. The Guesthouse has high ceilings, marble fireplaces and polished boards in some of the rooms and a sense of style rarely experienced since the days of private residences in the 1800s. All room styles are provided with all bedding, towels, heating, have shared bathroom facilities, laundry facilities and access to a fully equipped kitchen, where a Continental breakfast is included each day with your choice of tea, coffee, or hot chocolate all day. Free safety deposit box for passports and important papers and the addition of security carded door entry all makes it all the safer for guests belongings. Other services include phone, fax, internet, message & mail service, free tour & bus bookings, free daily newspaper (the age) and AUD travellers checks, Eftpos and visa/master/bank card accepted.

Homemade soup, ice cream, wine and nibbles nights and bbq's are just samples of the free goodies included for you whilst staying at the Nunnery. Advice and booking services for both local and interstate tours are provided, as well as a work placement board for those looking to stay for a while.
The Nunnery is within walking distance to the MCG, Rod Laver Arena, the Fitzroy Gardens, CBD, Lygon Street and Brunswick Street. Brunswick & Lygon Streets are culinary melting pots with some of the best cafes, restaurants and bars in all of Melbourne (not to mention the coffee!) and is home to the artistic, cultural and alternative communities of Melbourne. Fitzroy is also renown for it's incredible live music venues that offer everything from Jazz to Rock to Hip Hop.

Come and visit the Nunnery, basking in the relaxed and friendly vibe created by "the Nuns" (a.k.a Nunnery staff). Let the Nuns take care of you, in a place you can feel at home, whilst being miles away from it.
