    I only can recommend this sharehouse!

    I had a wonderful time there and was staying there surrounded by some nice people, I definitely would go there a 2nd time.

    Response from Zen:

    Thanks Florian, glad you've enjoyed your 2 weeks stay at our place. All the best with your travels!

  • Zen is such a great host. Accommodating to my early arrival, answering all my questions (whether it's pertaining to Melbourne or anything random), making sure i don't set the kitchen on fire.. the list just goes on. Will definitely find him if i'm back in Melbourne!

    The place is big and Zen makes it a point to keep it clean and tidy. It's also close to the city so it makes things much more simpler.

  • Great place and fantastic location. There´s everything you need and you feel like at home. Very friendly and helpful host. Highly recommended!

  • Great place. Close to the city. Footscray has a bad reputation, but I've never had trouble and everything around here is far cheaper than in the city. Zen is awesome as well, very nice, considerate, easy to get along with. If you want somewhere that's clean and relatively quiet as opposed to a 24/7 party house like you find in hostels, this is your place.
