Perfect for spoiling yourself but at a budget price, The Nunnery's wide range of accommodation styles are spread over two buildings, catering to both dormitory travellers 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 and DVD.

All rooms are provided with bedding, towels and heating.

Our hostel has shared bathroom facilities, laundry facilities and a fully equipped guest kitchen.

Continental breakfast is included each day, with your choice of tea, coffee and hot chocolate all day.

We provide lots of free goodies, such as homemade soup or ice cream, wine and nibbles nights and BBQs.

There is a free safety deposit box for passports and important papers; our security-carded door entry all makes it all the safer for guests' belongings.

Other services include phone, fax, internet, a message and mail service, free tour and bus bookings and a free daily newspaper (the Age). We provide advice and booking services for both local and interstate tours. There's also a work-placement board for those looking to stay for a while.

It is incredible just how at home you feel at the Nunnery with the Nuns (Nunnery staff), who create a relaxed, friendly vibe. And if you need confessions, Mother Superior or one of the sisters is always at hand!
