This is a listing for one bedroom on the second floor of Scruffy Old Campsie Guesthouse. The second floor rooms are nicer than the downstairs rooms – they are set up like they would be in a share house complete with a separate entrance to the floor. It is a bit more of a “home” like environment. We are one of the cheapest places to stay simply because our building is “scruffy” and “old” as the name says!
Room 4 has two single beds and is suitable for a single or two friends. Can push beds together too for a couple. There is also a built in wardrobe in this room and small desk.
It's a four bedroom house with one bathroom on this level. There is a common lounge/dining area. The house is a little dated - the kitchen is 1960's and showing some wear and tear. The bathroom is also a little outdated, but fully functional and clean. The house is kept to better-than-hostel standards, but not five star hotel standard. Everyone who stays here is expected to help keep the common areas clean. A house cleaner is provided once a week to help with cleaning.
I do not live on the property so this booking is suitable for those who are truly independent travelers and need little assistance. My father is a caretaker here and happy to talk over a beer but mostly you will be left alone to get on with your stay! There are usually some longer term guests in the house either upstairs or downstairs and they are also great sources of information on the local areas.
If you are easy going and don’t mind making new friends then this place will be ideal – some of our guests have stayed as long as ten months!
Rooms are fully furnished and linen is provided, along with private fridges. The lounge room has cable TV/Foxtel. There is however no air conditioning – just fans. For winter we have oil heaters and electric blankets.
You would share the courtyard and laundry with the others on this property and the verandah too. We are not at all a party guesthouse so this is perfect for those who are working or studying or who value privacy and a relaxed environment.
There is an outside laundry with coin operated washing machines and dryers. Smoking is only outside in the courtyard.
Wifi is free although sometimes a bit patchy upstairs so you are welcome to go downstairs to get better signals.

Room is clean and tidy, quite new utensils crockery are provided which is a nice touch. the house is very quiet and you have everything you need in a central Sydney location. excellent value for money and jody is well organised.
We stayed for eleven days and we couldn´t been happier, the place is clean and everyone is very friendly. Jody is a great person that makes an effort to make you feel welcome.
I don´t think we could have got a better room for that price. It´s really close to the train station and lots of shops to buy groceries if you want to save a buck and cook a little bit. The kitchen is nice and we got our own dishes and pans.
Me and my friend stayed two weeks in Campsie and we really enjoyed it.
Jody and her father were always helpful and Whenever we wrote Jody an mail, we got an answer very soon!
It was our best decision to stay in Campsie over Christmas and New Years Eve, because it was a nice place, we got to know many people and it was the cheapest one. I think you can't find a cheaper and better place like the Campsie Guesthouse.
