Second time here - says it all. Very clean place, comfortable bed, friendly host. Close to shopping mall, bus station & train station but still very quite & safe neighbourhood. Definitely recommend it! Thanks Sid.
We enjoyed our stay here and will recommend it to everybody who want's to have a privat atmosphere. It was a lovely and helpful family.
Great stay, hosts were very helpful, room was clean. good value for money..
I enjoyed the stay with Sid and family. They were very warm and welcoming. They helped a lot in me settling down during my first week as I was new to Melbourne. Overall it was a wonderful experience and I really felt at home with Sid's family.
I would recommend very strongly to stay with Sid Hurne. Though he was personally preoccupied, he was the utmost helpful host. He gave us his MYki pass for us to travel around and helped us with directions and recommendations. For first time travellers to Melbourne he was a gracious host. the room he offered us was quite big and very clean.
If I ever visit Melbourne again I would sure go and stay with him
Thanks once again Sid and Deepti for having us stay at your place.
Room nice & tidy, bed comfy with en-suite bathroom. Sid is a great bloke to chat with. Place is close to major shopping centre & no too far from train station. Highly recommend Sid's accommodation.
Sid has a vey nice place. The room for rent is spacious and has an ensuite. The house is very clean and convieniently located next to a big mall and not too far from the trainstation.
Take into account a 40 min drive to the city center of Melbourne, but Weribee has a few things to offer too.
