Mrs Gloria A

Very basic but did the job for us whilst staying in Sydney for NYE! The room was spacious and the bed was comfy and clean! Breakfast was very basic but again, did the job fine. The train station was a 15/20min walk away and on a good line to get into central Sydney. Would stay again if staying on a budget again.
Mrs Yasmin W

We had been let down 3 times by Airbnb and found this college. Great value even for New Year and good location with NYSE’s and trains short ride into the city. Newtown is great with a variety of good restaurants, cafes and bars. Would recommend
Ms Penny H

Surprisingly impressed with accomadation, it would have been nice to have aircon in the room as it got rather stuffy. The blinds on the window didn’t block out enough light. The breakfast was fine for what we paid for but an additional option of maybe eggs or baked beans would be a nice option. Overall the experience was great for the price paid and would definitely recommend for friends and family as an alternative option for accomadation in Sydney.
Mr Richard M

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 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.
Ms Joan K

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

Pleasant stay
