I expect you to respect others in the (website hidden) just common courtesy. No excessive noise or obviously parties. Just common courtesy and respect for others.
Bill is a great host and welcomes you with a nice bottle of white wine waiting in your room :) Room is very spacious and has all the Foxtel (Cable TV) channels which is great to watch and relax on the sofa or bed.
Perfect location to view what Melbourne has to offer and very close to local shops and many Asian restaurants locally in Carnegie town. Just up the road is Chadstone Shopping Centre which is apparently the largest shopping mall in the southern hemisphere! Bill is very accommodating and reasonable and you can contact him at most times if you have any queries. Thoroughly recommended - Enjoy your stay in Malvern East/Carnegie!
We were made very welcome, even though arriving in the evening, the description posted is correct, the permanent tenants are very quiet and we hardly ever had to wait to use the shared amenities. The bed is very comfortable and the room we stayed in was clean. This is great hostel type accommodation for travelers or people coming to Melbourne for a conference. It is only 35mins to Southern Cross Station.
The room was very spacious and felt homely. Staying in the house with the other guests/long-term house-mates was fine because everyone was nice, but also kept to themselves. The area is a little removed from the hub of the city, although it's only a 9 min walk to the train station, so well-connected for transport. Bill was always quick to reply when we needed to ask anything, and was very helpful and courteous. Room and facilities are at a good standard and the price of the room is very affordable, we would happily stay again
Myself and my girlfriend stayed in Bill's house for a week and he was very accommodating to our needs and very friendly
La camera e' un po' datata cosi' come il bagno e la cucina e nell'insieme la casa e' un po' sporca e piuttosto fredda.
La tendina da doccia andrebbe proprio cambiata per una questione di igiene.
Il wi-fi aveva dei problemi ma in compenso avevamo la TV digitale con moltissimo intrattenimento!
Carnegie non e' una zona centrale ma e' vicinissima al piu' grosso centro commerciale di Melbourne (Chadstone) e rimane un suburb delizioso, pieno di ristoranti e negozi.
La biblioteca di zona e' dotata di internet gratuito!
Bill e' un host molto gentile, all'arrivo abbiamo trovato una bottiglia di vino rosso in camera.
Consiglio specialmente per brevi soggiorni.
Great place to stay. Lovely, well appointed room, excellent value.
Very close to train station, safe walk home at night (important for female solo travellers). 5 min walk to large shopping centre and also dozens of takeaway joints.
Quiet house, other guests were lovely. Bill was an excellent host, very helpful.
