Interaction with Guests
I am in Sydney 9-10 months of the year and almost always meet guests for check in to explain transport options, potential tourist activities, and local hangouts. If I am out of town, a colleague will usually meet for check in.
After check in, I tend not to see most guests again, but I am on call any time for help, problem solving or local suggestions.
Located on the popular Crown Street, surrounded by loads of cafe's, bars and stores in the inner city village-like suburb of Surry Hills. This is very centrally located to most tourist activities and local hotspots, only a short walk to downtown.
3-5 minutes walk to Hyde Park.
5-10 minutes walk to Chinatown, Darling Harbour.
20-25 minutes walk to Circular Quay, Opera House, etc.
Located 1 block off the famous gay strip known as Oxford Street. It's fairly quiet inside the studio considering how close it is to nightlife options.
Very centrally located within walking distance to most tourist attractions. Lots of public transport options nearby including buses, trains, taxi, and trams.
From the airport there are 2 main transport options:
1) 15-20 minute train ($16) on the same line as the airport to "Museum" station, followed by a 5 minute walk up Oxford Street.
2) 20-25 minute taxi ($30-$60) directly to Crown Street depending on traffic.
Other Things to Note
Sydney is a very safe city and there are no security or safety concerns. However the studio has double security doors downstairs and a secure elevator. This studio is a great location to enjoy some nightlife, which is safe even for a woman by herself at night.
Please no indoor smoking.
Scott was extremely helpful and welcoming on our arrival to Sydney. He took time and effort to explain the location, travel etc and to recommend local cafes / restaurants.
The studio is compact - but there has been much thought out into providing all you may need for your stay. This is a comfortable, well appointed base for a short stay. Wifi was a little shaky but there are other places to pick up a signal.
The apartment is well located in easy walking distance to all the main attractions in Sydney and is placed in a charming part of town. The nearest train line is just a ten minute stroll.
We would definitely use this flat again on return to the city.
Simple, confortable, very good situation and a perfect host! Will be back soon!
Great location right in the midst of everything. Scott was quick to respond to any queries and the place was clean and tidy. Small but fine if you don't plan on spending much time inside.
A lovely sunny room with everything you need. Great value for money and I would happily stay again. Bring earplugs though cos it is near a party zone. I thank Scott for the opportunity of staying in this great apartment. Highly recommended.
Even though we did not get to meet Scott as he was away, he has been very helpful before we headed over to Sydney - giving advice on public transport, food places to go, etc. He was also prompt in replying (sometimes taking less than 10min to reply!).
The room, though small, has all the facilities we needed. It is definitely value for money. The best part of this apartment is the location. There are many buses you can take to all the main attractions.
We had a pleasant stay. Thank you, Scott!
The apartment is small but nice - and well priced for what you get. Location is very central which was good for us. There were some large cockroaches running loose but this seems to be fairly normal in Sydney! Unfortunately Scott did make the rather terrible decision on the day of checkout which was to have his employee enter the apartment whilst we were out, pack up our belongings and dump them in reception following a communication mixup with the checkout time. We had no idea this was happening and were totally mortified by the experience.
Out of my 350 guests, Ricky is the only one to have disregarded the check out time that was explained multiple times. He did not answer his phone all morning and the next guest was due to arrive, so I called Airbnb and they supported the decision to pack Ricky's things so that the next guest was not inconvenienced by Ricky's mistake.
My colleague handled the entire situation calmly and professionally, but Ricky was rude and making inappropriate and false accusations which caused quite a scene in the lobby. This would never have happened if Ricky kept to the house rules and checked out at the correct time.
Apartment as described. Perfect if you wanna be situated in the heart of all the hippest eateries and drinkeries. It's like having a hotel room but you can come and go as you please. East access to Bondi and easy walk into town too. Nice touch of a cool drink on arrival.
Thanks Scott and colleague.
