Warm welcomes and smiling faces

It was a bold step to move from a very small rural area in southern NSW to the big smoke of a city. When I was looking for accommodation in Melbourne my parents were concerned for my safety and also how I would manage domestic chores and study.

When arriving at Madre Nazarena Student's House (MNSH) I was greeted with many warm welcomes and smiling faces. My parents knew straight away I would be very happy here and felt at ease knowing that I was in a friendly, safe and comfortable place. This building architecturally is amazing; it is not only modern and stylish, but spacious too.

People are curious when I say I live at a hostel with several religious Sisters and thirty other girls. The Sisters are a family for each of us. Young girls can initially find it hard to live without their mothers, however at MNSH we have strong and compelling women as role models who I believe jointly share their wisdom to assist with any individual situation required.

Initially, I felt very strange walking around the streets of Melbourne. There were people of all nationalities speaking words that I could not possibly understand. In this hostel I have had the opportunity to embrace culture. We sample each other's exotic food, exchange recipes, share stories and cultural understanding. I now have many friends from all over the world and know for sure that if I will be overseas I will have friends to visit.

I would highly recommend that you visit and see what a relaxed, caring environment in a tranquil setting within busy Melbourne has to offer at Madre Nazarena Student's House.
