Certificate of Excellence
Altona’s biggest advantage is its location. The accommodation offered is at ‘entry level’ and we frequently refer to it as ‘two steps up from a Backpackers’. We offer comfortable and clean surroundings. The house, having 13 bedrooms (8 with Private Bathrooms and 5 using Communal Bathrooms), is ideal for small groups. Historically it has been very popular and fits the pockets of International travellers who seeks budget accommodation without having to compromise their privacy.

WiFi was great the kids enjoyed it more. Breakfast needs some improvement or variety, bacon can be substituted with something else. Close to most tourist attractions and beaches. Small wardrobe to hang clothes. It’s family friendly. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Really excellent location in the heart of Greenpoint. Great if you want to explore the city. One thing I do regret is that I never got to try the breakfast, which smelled absolutely amazing, but was in such a rush for an appointment (my wedding!!!!).
