As others have said it's a no frills place. I found it spotlessly clean - sheets, towels, bathroom, etc bed was comfortable and the TV worked ok. Also the staff were very helpful. It's kind of a step up from a backpackers. It's probably the cheapest place in Manly where you get an ensuite bathroom. Yes the stairs are steep but not really a problem (I'm in my 60s and they didn't bother me). Not the place to stay if you're going to spend a lot of time in your room but great for a place to sleep.

Dirty, old. Paint peeling.Faded walls. Broken windows. Mold all over shower door.10 years past a needed renovation. They didn't even have my reservation and I travelled from Canberra. The worst place I have ever stayed in. My partner even refused to shower there it was that bad.

Definitely agree with previous posts.
I stayed there with 3 other girls in a modest suite which covered all the basics.
Yes, we did encounter some cockroach type insects which were sent on to their next lives by my friends.
No handle on the inside of the sliding door to the bathroom made things fun when it was a challenge to open the door from the inside!
The very extended and noisy flush of the toilet gave us our evening mantra of "if it's yellow, let it mellow"...
I had the fold out couch bed, which contained an extremely thin mattress and ended up shifting to the floor and using the couch cushions for a better rest!
It did have a feel of a backpackers with certain party-going neighbours running up & down the hall a few times late at night, but ear plugs do help!

If you're not hanging out in the room all day and exploring Manly and it's attractions, this place is great to stay at for those on a budget.

When we booked through the website we expected the accommodation to be fairly basic but not backpacker. The website made it sound a little more than backpacker accommodation but this is what it really is really is. There was one small window and no air conditioning but there was a small fan in the room. What the web site didn't say was that you had to go up the equivalent of about 2 flights of stairs to get to the room ( no lifts). It is in a good location. If you are wanting a backpacker studio and are capable of the stairs it would be a great place to stay. Unfortunately it was less than we were expecting( small, dark and too basic) and the stairs were a big issue. We ended up canceling and staying at one of the beach front hotels. I have rated this place according to what we were expecting ( going on the website) not as a backpacker accommodation.

Reading the other reviews we were concerned about booking this property. However the location was convenient as it was 2 blocks from the beach and close to the the centre of Manly. Yes the building is old and the room is ugly and basic. However there were no bedbugs and the linen was clean. The great thing was that we were able to have secure offstreet parking under the building included in the price. The downside was that the whole building appears to not be level as the floor in our room was on a severe slant. Our head was lower than our feet in bed. It didnt impact too much on us but this was a bit disconcerting!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from Pittwater Road
