Train station 3 minutes walk. The train station has trains that can take you to Melbourne CBD(15minutes), Geelong/Great Ocean Road (50minutes), Bendigo line (1hour).
Biking is fairly easy and is very convenient, taking 15 minutes to get into the city.
There is also parking at the front of the house available for guests who own a car.
Getting here from the airport, just hop on the free shuttle bus at the airport, get off at the last stop at Southern Cross Station and catch the train to Footscray.
My sister and I both work while studying at Uni as mature aged students, both in our late 20s. Our house is not a party house, so if this is your scene, it would be difficult for us to accommodate you due to our busy lives.
Didn't actually meet sarah, considering I wasn't home an awful lot. The place was nice and the room was clean. The bathroom could use a good clean as well as the Kitchen, but there was nothing to bad. It's really easy to get to the city and the area has some really great restaurants
Sarah has a great place decently close to the city (10-15 mins by train) and her home is a 5 min walk from the station. The house and the room are quite clean . Unfortunately (or fortunately for me) Sarah was on a holiday during my visit and hence got to have the place for myself, which was an added bonus ! Overall, an affordable place quite close to the city in a quite and safe suburb.
Everything was really good. I stay for 9 days, and enjoyed it. Never met sarah but her friends let me in the house and show me around and helped me out with some issues such as getting a sms card, etc. Really near to the train station in a quite area
Sarah's place is extremely close to the train station and is very convenient. Sarah provided me with internet access upon my arrival and guided me through the house. The place is very quiet, neat and is pretty much equipped with all the facilities required and comes with a bonus 'a very nice garden one can enjoy during the evening'. As for Sarah, she is a very helpful and welcoming host with exquisite taste which shows in the marvellous set-up of her house. Thanks again Sarah and keep up the good work :)
Sarah has a lovely house, very comfortable, clean and with all the neccesary amenities. Footscray is very close to the city, 10 min train ride, and the station is only a 5 minute walk. The neighborhood is unique with many Asian shops. Good option
The location was really convenient for getting a train to CBD. Unfortunately the house wasn't clean when I arrived but Sarah cleaned it that evening after I sent a message.
This place really close to the train and the CBD. Sarah was great. She worked a lot so i didn't really see much of her. But when we did bump into each other, she always asked if i needed anything. She even offered me an umbrella when it was raining out.
However the bedroom, bathroom and living area were not as clean as i have hoped.
