  • I have a good time staying at Zen place. The place was very clean and comfortable. The neighbor was very quite and one of the quieter place I've been. Thanks Zen for your hospitality.

  • We decided to spend our last days in Melbourne at Zens house and it was a really good decision. Zen is a very friendly host and was always helpful. We stayed in the 4-bed dorm but were only two people so we had a lot of space. The house is very clean and the kitchen has everything you need. Our other housemates always kept the places clean and tidy unlike in some other accommodations. There might be no Coles, Woolworths or Aldi nearby but there is a variety of other small shops where you can buy groceries and other things you need. At the other side of the footscray-station there is a big market where you can buy fresh meat/fruit/vegetables etc. for a good price.
    We enjoyed our stay here and would gladly recommend it to you.

  • Great location, great place!! Really enjoyed my stay here in Footscray, though I was reluctant to come here at the beginning I have no regrets. The location is awesome, its 5minutes away from the train station and only minutes away from great markets, restaurants, cafes and cheap stores. The street is nice, quiet and clean. It is only 5 minutes away from the local gym (which I must mention is only $10 bucks a week) and minutes from the local bar/cafe (dancing dog cafe) which have great events on every night of the week. The owners are friendly and helpful. Communication was spot on, I didn't have to wait days for emails/calls or txts, Zen was always in contact within hours which is great when your on the road and travelling from place to place. The other guests, who were mainly from Taiwan, were very kind, friendly and respectful. I learnt a lot here about the Taiwanese culture, and am now in love with the people from there. The house is very tidy, and has everything you need. After the first couple of nights here I decided to extend another month on top of my booking. Overall very TOP considering how cheap it is. I definitely recommend this place to other travellers.

    The accomodation is very clean, and provides everything you need and even more.
    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.

  • 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. 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.
