I moved into GVA whilst looking for a place to rent in Sydney as I was studying locally, 14 months later and I only moved out to be closer to work. Susan and the rest of the staff from day one could not have been kinder or more welcoming, willing to go that extra mile for you all the time.... More

From the start I will say that I wasn't expecting the Ritz but I have actually joined trip advisor purely to write about my disgust at this place. So I arrived after travelling for 24 hours from the UK, all travel went well and my spirits were high, until I entered this dump... First of all there was no one... More

I recently moved to Sydney and I was looking for a temporary accommodation with a reasonable rent. I found GVA on booking.com and was quite happy with its location and proximity to the city and the rent was affordable as well. I stayed there for about 2 weeks and I very much liked the people living there, majority of them... More

I was moving to Sydney for work and had to stay at a temporary accommodation while searching for a more permanent place. Rental in Sydney is really expensive and as someone who just started work, I was reluctant to spend too much - so I was relived when I found GVA. Firstly, GVA is conveniently located - 10 minutes away... More

I am a consultant and my work involves travelling in and out of Australia. Over the past few years, when I have to be in Sydney for a few weeks to a few months, I stayed in GVA.

My name's Emily and I would recommend anyone to stay at GVA. I stayed at GVA for 3 weeks temporarily before I moved closer to my college. I had such a wonderful time at GVA.

The joint is an absolute dive, the rooms are disgusting and the furniture is old and broken. I ran night clubs for years but the noise never ends and no discipline or respect for studying or for those who have to go to work. Food is included in the deal but don't get to carried away, the menu is nothing... More

Thanks for your useful (and creative) feedback Dean. January in Sydney is always busy and the students are mostly on holiday. We do our best to keep noise to a minimum with a dedicated night time security guard. GVA is budget student accommodation - we encourage any potential visitors to call or email if in doubt whether it is suitable... More
