Good budget accommodation close to beach.

Posted Apr 20, 2015
Pros: Close to beach. Quiet and reasonably priced.
Location: Manly has everything there. Nightlife, beach, musuems and snorkelling. Also Sydney is only a ferry ride away.
Read reviews and decided to go ahead with booking although had reservations. Most of the negatives wouldn't bother us such as parking (we came by ferry), key at another location (only around the corner) and lots of stairs (no big deal for us as we're used to walking). People complained about cleanliness and uncomfortable bed. We did not find this to be the case. The room was reasonably clean and the beds were comfortable. It is budget accommodation not luxury. If you want better facilities and comfort you have to pay for it!

Basic no frills apartment

Posted Mar 9, 2015
This is a bare minimum apartment. It has a hostel feel to it. Rather dreary but it was fine for one night. Good choice if you are in a budget. A set of dishes, microwave, mini-fridge and kettle were provided. Not many towels.

Do not expect too much

Posted Jan 17, 2015 on Hotels.com
Room was not clean when we moved in. Do not bring too much luggage as you will have to carry everything up the stairs to the third floor. This is a backpackers hostel, do not expect too much. Also I consider that Internet should be free in any hotel. The location is fine, walking distance to all the important places in Manly.
