Darren was fantastic to deal with and the room and setup was great. Darren really went the extra mile, making our guest feel very welcome. We'll definitely be back. Lovely neighbourhood too.
Darren an Bruce are wonderful hosts. They are flexible and and thoughtful and we always have everything we need. The studio that is the milkbar is comfortable and beautifully set out. We have been back a couple of times now and intend to continue staying each time we visit Melbourne. Thanks for the great hospitality!
My parents-in-law stayed at Darren's place for four weeks and loved it. The location is great - close to the train, plus Seddon and Footscray villages for coffee, food and everything else. Darren and Bruce were extremely helpful and accommodating, and put a lot of effort into making sure their guests were comfortable and had everything they need. We definitely recommend Darren's place very highly.
We were in town to see friends and we're around very much but Darren and Bruce made us feel most welcome with milk and cookies. The room was lovely and clean. We'll definitely be back again the next time we're in Melbourne :)
I have stayed at the milk bar several times now.. Darren is a great host and I can assure the Milk Bar will not disappoint..
Our stay at the Aussie Milkbar was wonderful! Darren and Bruce were very generous hosts and great people to stay with. They made us feel welcome and looked after us beyond expectation. The room is very clean, comfortable and convenient to the Melbourne CBD. I had to work during our stay and the wifi and room layout made this an easy space to be productive. We would absolutely recommend staying with Darren and we hope to return when we next visit Melbourne.
