Great location, various choice of foods around, close to pubic transport. 10' to CBD by bus. Though we arrived lately (midnight), we got a lovely warm welcome by staff. Jolie was helpful welcoming. Even the middle-aged cleaner, he was also friendly and cheerful. Kitchen facilities were tidy and clean. Thanks.

A lovely old building in need of refurbishment or at least some TLC. Cleanliness was OK, just, but the bathroom, such as it was, smelled of open drain and had patches of mold in the shower, cracked tiles, etc. More Hostel than Hotel. I found the experience somewhat depressing, although the staff were pleasant. Location is great if you need... More

I was generally pleased with this place. I stayed here for a few nights and my room was comfortable and spacious, with a great little balcony attached. The shared bathroom and kitchen facilities were clean and basic. The receptionist was really welcoming and helpful, and the whole place had a friendly atmosphere. The location is perfect for Sydney U but... More

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

Gave me free WIFI when they saw that I had arrived late in the day and was leaving in the morning It is in a great location - close to... 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
