Guest Reviews

We had been let down 3 times by Airbnb and found this college. Great value even for New Year and good location with NYSE’s and trains short ride into the city. Newtown is great with a variety of good restaurants, cafes and bars. Would recommend

Surprisingly impressed with accomadation, it would have been nice to have aircon in the room as it got rather stuffy. The blinds on the window didn’t block out enough light. The breakfast was fine for what we paid for but an additional option of maybe eggs or baked beans would be a nice option. Overall the experience was great for the price paid and would definitely recommend for friends and family as an alternative option for accomadation in Sydney.

We had a lovely stay. There were lots of students staying and they were all very polite and helpful. The only drawback was a lack of Aircon but it was such good value. The area is brilliant for transport and eating places. Great location.

When I stayed in front room on second floor outside temperature was mild. I can imagine the room could get warm in hot weather. Can hear traffic in front room but was not a problem for me. Otherwise was quiet. TV room a bonus. Friendly people when I saw them. Brilliant location. Nice walk to Redfern station,

Had a great stay reminded us of our university time room was basic but big and clean shared bathrooms with laundry facilities (washing/drying each 2) safe and lively neighbourhood with heaps of bars and restaurants train station is a 10 min walk. Perfect for our stay over NYE!

Great stay at St Andrew's College., , Reception friendly and helpful, Room.clean and comfortable, and a good size, WiFi fast, Location convenient for Newtown and trains to Sydney., , Fantastic opportunity to support the university,

Stayed at St John's for two nights. The staff at reception were very helpful on arrival (arrived early, and was able to pick up the key before moving into the room). Stayed in en-suite double room on the 1st floor facing into the courtyard. The room was clean and quiet and it was convenient having my own bathroom for a reasonable price. Beds were a normal length, a bit short for very tall people. Had cereal & juice for breakfast but there was also bread+jam, fruit, yoghurt and tea/coffee available. Free wifi in lounge and bedroom. Used Arrivo Sydney to check which bus was coming next at the bus stop directly outside the college. Easy 200m walk to Parramatta road if the buses were going to be a while. Bus took 10-15 minutes to the CBD. Would stay there again.

Everything is new, clean and perfect! The breakfast is huge and the place is so beautiful! I love this place!!!! Good location

Accommodation very good, staff very helpful and friendly. Best place to stay ever.

It provides great accommodation at reasonable prices in wonderfully convenient locations. I liked the comfy bed, the ceiling fan (Sydney in December was rather humid) and the spacious room.

St Johns College is situated in a very lively area, with good shops, pubs and restuarants, access into Sydney a short bus ride away, so that you get all the benefits of Sydney with less cost

An interresting way to stay in a city. I liked the old buildings.

Quiet and very comfortable; Beautiful building and grounds; Amazing value; Close to transport.
