Great room in Awesome Newtown!

Apartment - Private room · King Street, Newtown, NSW 2042, Australia

The Space

Hello & Welcome to Newtown!

I have a awesome room in my apartment in Newtown. It's in a prime location right on King Street. Only five minutes walk from Newtown station (which means just 10 minutes to get to the city by train). Bus stops are right outside so if you are travelling or need a room to base yourself for a short time to see Sydney this will be perfect for you!

It's your own room so it would be 100 times better than going to a hostel! Think about it! So the same price you could share with 5 other people in a hostel or have your own room? No contest,

There is a larger than normal sized single bed, cupboard, draws, plasma TV and heater in the room and your own little balcony with table and chair. I'll also provide linen for the bed

I'm living by myself (with a small dog) so the room is just to make ends meet. Huge lounge room and kitchen which I'm happy to share. I don't always cook but when I do it's usually something awesome.

Please take note the fact I have a dog! If you're not comfortable with dogs or not familiar with them it's not the place for you. Ruby is a gorgeous and lovely Jack Russell. She loves new guests and gets excited to see new people.

Being on King street you have access to a major amount of wine bars, pubs, restaurants and easy access to the city, University of Sydney. I'm always happy to help my guest with directions or advice about Sydney.

I'm also happy to loan my mountain bike out during the day for a deposit and daily rental.

I work Monday to Friday's (so the check in time is when I usually get home - but you leave when you want.). You are welcome to ask if you can book in earlier (and I'll try to help if I can) but please note I have to work and I come home at 6pm. If that doesn't work for you I apologise but please don't complain about it later.

I'm a complete movie nerd and I've lived in Sydney most of my life. I'm always happy to point places out and if I have no plans I'm happy to show you around.

Any questions please contact me and I'll try to answer as best as I can.

Thanks and look forward to meeting you!

Happy to have a chat and such but for the most part I like to use home to chill out and relax. I always give my guests as much privacy as they need.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Paul was a great host. The room was comfortable and well furnished. The location is perfect, within walking distance to public transport, plenty of food options and entertainment. Recommended!

  • Pretty inexpensive stay with fast internet (always welcome). Highly strung dog but cute! Paul was very accommodating despite last minute booking. Only downside is a bit noisy if you have the windows open from the birds outside and the rest of the place wasn't as clean as the pics suggest. Room was fine however. Overall a good find in Newtown.

  • I stayed at Paul's when I first arrived in Sydney and was house hunting. Paul's place is great - good location, good room with lots of storage space and a balcony. It was a great start to my 6 month adventure in Australia.

  • I've stayed with Paul a few times now when I've been in Sydney for work - I love his place, the location, and he's always a fabulous host. Paul, thanks for having me every week!

  • Hi everybody... I spent two weeks at Paul's apartment and it's was really great! It's a very nice room, complete furnished, and the place is quiet clean and comfortable. Paul is a very nice guy and provided all necessary information that I needed. It s a central suburb really close to train and bus stops. You will also find heaps of bars, pubs and markets there... and all other stores and buildings you may need: banks, restaurants, ... It was a perfect place to find my permanent apartment at Sydney. Cheers

  • Paul was a great host - very friendly and accommodating! His place is perfectly located (nice and close to Newtown Station, and I just love this part of town). It's exactly like the photos, the bed is nice and comfy, and it's really clean. Definitely one of Newtown's best kept secrets... shhhh!

  • I had a really nice time at Paul's place. He lives in a spacious apartment in a really fun neighborhood not far from the center of Sydney. For me he provided a nice private room with a very comfy bed and access to all the amenities of the apartment.

    Paul himself was a really friendly guy--very easygoing. He has a fantastic movie collection and AV setup as well. I'd definitely recommend staying here!
