I booked a single room with share facilities for 4 nights but got a room with 4 beds for my own (nothing to complain though). The room was comfortable and clean. The only drawback was that I couldn't open the window. The location was great with a walking distance to the University of Sydney. There're lots of cafe on the... More

I have stayed here for almost a week, every 10 weeks, in the last 3 years. The owners "Alishan" and the people working on reception are truly great. The house is clean and the cooking facilities are more than you could wish for. It is worth mentioning that it is also surprisingly quiet, considering the houses' close proximity to the... More

Spent 3 weeks there. Rooms and stuff were fine and adequate as we spent most of our time out. Staff were kind and attentive. One employee Vince was polite and kindly offered some recommendations. It's always nice to chat with a local staff. Especially loved the balcony! Just grab snacks and a drink to chat with frds on the balcony... More

restaurants, supermarkets, chemists, laundry and all shops necessary foe daily living are at walkable distance from the guess house. The bus stop to downtown is right opposite to the guest house and the whole journey takes about 5 to 10 minutes only. Although most of the rooms needs to share accomodation, they are all very neat and clean with individual... More

I have stayed at the Alishan many times over the past year or so, in some instances for a month or more at a time. The quaint property's entrance is framed by frangipanis and a beautiful garden and inside you'll find everything you might need on your stay. Common areas house a gas kitchen, laundry facilities (extra cost) and wifi... More

Spent the last 2 nights here. Bed was comfortable, clean room and ensuite. Linen in good order. Good price. Close to bus stop and plenty of places to eat or you can self cater which is great. Have booked again later in the year. Thanks for your hospitality. The street was noisy Saturday night but that is easily fixed with... More

Convenient location for Sydney central and regular bus services up and down Glebe Point Road. However, the rooms at the Alishan are not cleaned well or regularly and there are often cockroaches in the bathrooms and kitchen. Fridges in bedrooms need to be cleaned properly otherwise they smell. The tatami room leaves a lot to be desired, the matting is... More
