Only down side is the shared bathrooms and that's totally doable. We had FREE 5+ breakfast every morning of our stay, cereals, bacon, eggs, toast, raisin bread the list goes on. Short walk to ferry that takes 6 mins max to get to the Quay(unless you want to get on and take the 20min trip which returns to Kirribilli before... More

Dear Tracy, I am so glad that even though you don't think we should be shared. you did choose to write a wonderful review. We sincerely appreciate it. Also it's great that you enjoyed our breakfast. You clearly booked direct with us and hence the Free Brekky. It's charged if you book through a 3rd party website. Again I wish... More

Highly affordable, very comfortable / clean and easily in the best location for visiting the major tourist attractions in Sydney. Ferry just 1 minute away and a 5 min trip to Circular Quay. We will absolutely be back and have already recommended this to several family and friends as a place to stay.

As noted by other reviewers, the lodge is comfortable and clean. You need to know that it is shared bathrooms but if you are ok with this it is a terrific location. You are literally meters from the ferry to get across the harbour into the city. Note also that there are quite a few stairs so not the greatest... More
