The best stay in Sydney of my whole Australia trip. It felt like staying in Hogwarts. All people were so friendly. Perfect in the middle of the city I could reach everything by foot. For New Years Eve its a perfect stay because you don't have a minimun stay. Would ever come back again!

We had a lovely stay. There were lots of students staying and they were all very polite and helpful. The only drawback was a lack of Aircon but it was such good value. The area is brilliant for transport and eating places. Great location.
Mrs Jane D

Good value for money but basic, as would be expected. No fans are available as students apparently bring their own - worth noting if you are visiting in the summer!

We were 3 adults staying in St Andrews . It was very near the airport and Newtown was a buzzing area with lots of restaurants and bars . Bus and train service into Sydney CBD was only a few minutes walk from the college. We really enjoyed our stay. The breakfast was excellent the room were clean with high ceilings so it was not to hot and we didn't need a/c.

The boy and girl at reception were really kind with us and helpful. Breakfast was incredible. Nice and quiet environment to stay.

Had a great stay, reminded us of our university time, room was basic, but big and clean, shared bathrooms with laundry facilities (washing/drying each $2), safe and lively neighbourhood with heaps of bars and restaurants, train station is a 10 min walk. Perfect for our stay over NYE!
