WORST-NEVER STAY HERE!HORRIBLE-DIRTY

Posted May 22, 2017
Checked in at a backpackers where police were trying to find someone! Got to room and nearly vomited! 40000 stairs to get to the room! No lift (dirty)NO parking even if you want to pay for it...got to room-stunk,dirty bathroom,bed had hairs on it,carpet all ripped,wall had holes,no heater or cooler,walked straight back out as we had a baby! Booked somewhere else-lost out money and didn't care it was that disgusting! Photos are full of lies! Just don't do it

Great location

Posted Apr 9, 2017
Pros: Location.
Cons: Whilst we stayed a a recently renovated room there was still things that needed to be fixed. Window didn't open properly and they needed screens, nowh
Location: Close to the ferry terminal. Walked everywhere.
Our room was being renovated and it seemed that it was being done on the cheap. Whilst being situated in a great location - walking distance to everything, the rooms could have been renovated to a slightly higher level.

Not Beachside

Posted Feb 27, 2017 on Wotif
Pros: Had fast running water. The fan worked.
Cons: Repair power point, clean mould in bathroom,new toilet brush, lamp broken, the auto lights in hall didnt work at night left to unlock door in the dark
Location: .
Took a while to find out where reception was and stood outside for about five minutes.....about a block away in a Backpackers venue - thankfully some guests who had the same trouble finding Reception too showed us the way. Room was very small for the price, no air conditioning and name gave the impression it was beach side. There are about forty stairs to get to rooms and no lift.

Manly apartments -close to shops and shores.

Posted Feb 12, 2017 on Wotif
Location is good -close to main shopping district, food and restaurants, warf and shores. Room neat and clean with sheets, towels, basic kitchen needs. Small price for unlimited, reliable Wi-Fi. Communal laundry was very useful. Serviced daily, replenishing low stock such as toilet and bathroom as well as kitchen needs. Stayed for a week when weather was humid and over 35-40 degrees. No air con though. It made the stay very uncomfortable. No elevator. Difficult to drag heavy luggage up two sets of stairs.

Perfect location

Posted Jan 21, 2017 on Wotif
Pros: Location, space, facilities, firm mattresses
Cons: See above shower recess
Location: Beach ferry restaurants walks- everything one needs set in a beautiful harbour and coastline
Great place to stay but would have loved an air-con given the weather. Apart from that if attention was given to cleaning the shower recess, the rest was great! Will definitely stay there again!

Very close to manly town

Posted Jan 1, 2017 on Wotif
Pity about the stairs up to the rooms but the rooms were exactly what you paid for, cheap but clean and tidy. Getting key from down the road was ok and very friendly staff at the Backpackers.

Great value for money! Great location with beach

Posted Dec 27, 2016
Pros: Location and price
Cons: Single bed and pullout couch bed were very uncomfortable but everything else was fine.
Location: Great location. Fantastic Mexican restaurant further up the road and a good coffee shop just across the road. Easy access to Ferry
Was looking for something for a family of four (with teenagers) that was close to beach and affordable. Manly Beachside was great. Ideal location and clean and tidy. Great kitchenette with microwave and fridge so we could have breakfast each morning. Pull out bed was very uncomfortable for teenage son - not that it got him out of bed any earlier in the morning!! Overall had a wonderful time in Manly and found some great places to eat.
