We stayed here for just one night recently and it was perfect. The room was large and clean and quiet, and had everything we needed. The staff were helpful, and the common areas well equipped. No complaints from us at all!

Very clean and tidy! Quiet and relaxed, also awesome large kitchen area with lots of fridge space, huge TV and comfy sofa, great for a chilled night in. Rooms are very nice indeed, had an excellent couple of nights sleep here. Bathrooms cleaned regularly and never had to queue. On site laundry is also an excellent addition to the facilities... More

This is a great place to stay, it is 120 steps to the beach and only a short walk to the Corso, Manly ferry etc.. This place does have shared bathrooms but there are plenty to go around and they are cleaned all the time. I stayed in a double room by myself but there would be plenty or room... More

My review is based on an accurate appreciation of what this place is: a budget stay. Others have complained about mundane things - if you want more, pay more and go elsewhere. Manly Guesthouse is for those who would rather spend their money on things like good food, wine, and a fun night out! I stayed here 2 weeks in... More

This is not the cheapest hostel in Manly, but all places are expensive in Manly. That said, the rooms are the cleanest I have ever stayed at in a hostel. The bathrooms are spotless the kitchen kept clean, and well organized. Good common area. The age of the guest vary, but it appears to be an older more laid back... More

Save up your money and stay somewhere better. It's a tired place and they don't clean the rooms if you stay for a few days, which I think is really below par. I don't think it is good value for money contrary to other reviewers, so bump up your budget a bit and look elsewhere. The bathrooms are fine when... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We value all opinions and really do try to provide a comfortable stay for people traveling with a tight budget. We are not a backpacker as we do not have shared rooms or dorms, only private rooms. True, our bathrooms are shared. We clean them all thoroughly every day and... More

Don't stay here, it's cheap, in a great location, clean, friendly, sociable. No good if you want a place to stay that lets you explore Sydney for a reasonable rate, no good if you want to stay somewhere safe and clean with your children like I did. In all seriousness, this places is great.... I just don't want it getting... More

I stayed for an entire week (minimum length) in order to attend a conference at a nearby hotel. The place is kept very clean and I particularly appreciated being able to make the occasional meal in the well equipped kitchen. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms are shared but that was not a problem. Shops, restaurants and the... More

My first thought when entering the room I booked at this hotel was "thank god it's only for one night!" I was greeted by a stale musty smell. The contents of this tiny room, very basic; an old single bed, chest of drawers and wardbrobe. The place is very old (as are a number of places in Manly), the shared... More

After staying 2 weeks, I would happily stay here again. The guest house has private rooms (single, triple, etc) and not dorms. The bathrooms & showers are shared, but hold one person at a time and are private when in use. The bathrooms are excellent, very clean, and the showers are excellent. This guesthouse seems to attract the non-party crowd,... More
