19 March 2011 Fiona would recommend this property

Liked: The owner, Keith is very helpful and laid back - we had only booked three nights but as we couldn't find an apartment straight away we ended up staying for two weeks, so our stay became a day-to-day rolling thing which he was very relaxed about. It might have been more of a hassle elsewhere. There's a nice area out back to sit. Beds are clean enough. Location is very close to stanmore station and a ten minute walk to enmore and newtown.

Disliked: It's just hostel residents who clean the rooms and if people haven't moved their stuff off the floor it sometimes just isn't done, or done well. There's a sort of curfew at 10.30pm meaning you can't sit in the common areas anymore and even if you sit across in the park you're shooed away.

Liked: Keith was very friendly and helped you out in whatever way possible. The breakfast was standard, but it was nice to never have to worry about going to get food in the morning. Felt very safe and there was never a problem going to sleep when you wanted to.

Disliked: Probably not the best for people looking to party.

Liked: Free Wi-Fi (even though a bit buggy, but ethernet in rooms was fine). Fridge, sink, TV in every room. It's not located in Sydney's heart but therefore it's quiet around here and you feel safe! Keith, the manager, is a great guy just like all the travellers here were.

Disliked: Only con: You had to leave the kitchen and eating area at 10:30pm. That makes pleasant sleep but it's less cool to hang around.

Liked: We originally booked to stay for 2 weeks but ended up staying for 3. Keith, the owner, is very friendly & welcoming & helped us a lot with where to go & what to see & really made us feel at home. The hostel was cleaned everyday & the free breakfast was good. The hostel is literally 5 minutes walk from the trains to the city, a few local shops & a pub. It's in a lovely quiet part of town & is a good base for exporing sydney.We had a great stay & felt quite sad when we had to leave.

Disliked: Lisa left no negative feedback.
