“The best guesthouse in Carpenter Street!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

I arrived having booked into Backpacker Stay...I moved after 1 night as it was so noisy.

This guesthouse was found by accident as its wasn't advertised. Recently opened the rooms are basic but very clean and fresh with aircon throughout. A simple breakfast is included in the price and is available all day, should you wish. Theres a really relaxed vibe and the front of house, Matt, is super friendly and helpful. He works tirelessly to ensure that you're comfortable throughout your stay. Wifi is available free of charge throughout.

The owners of the guesthouse are equally lovely and they are in the process of providing a comfy sofa and cushions to the communal area, once done this will make the place perfect.

I loved this place so much I stayed 8 nights.

A perfect location for exploring the local area , in the heart of the old Chinatown and only 1 street back from the waterfront.

I would definitely stay here again and have no reservations about recommending it.

Room Tip: I stayed on the top floor in room 201.....exceptionally quiet, would recommend for any light sleeper...
