“would stay again”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

This is very much budget accommodation but I would stay again. There was a dead cockroach or two (better dead than alive). Worst part was the bathroom directly off the kitchen corner with a door that didn't close properly. OK for one person who can go out for a while when necessary. No good for more than one person.
Best was the location, very close to the beach and the heart of Manly. People were very nice and sheets, crockery etc nice and clean. Would stay again but wouldn't take others there.

The room was very dirty. Window sills and surrounds were dirt encrusted. The attached photo shows the large spider web and spider directly above the bed. Windows had no screens or locks. Signs told us to keep them closed to keep pigeons out. There was a filthy pedestal fan in the cupboard. Bathroom door was hanging off, and shower curtain was filthy. Plates in cupboard were dirty with encrusted food.

Staff in the Backpacker hostel where we had to go for the key were extremely offhand and unhelpful.

Room Tip: Check rooms before accepting.

For the price these apartments are excellent accommodation in Manly.
A set of steep steps to get up to the first floor but that did not worry us. Very convenient accommodation, will definatly stay again

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.
