Hello Vicky. Glad you had a great stay with us. We know we are budget accommodation but try to add what we can to make your stay a success. Free breakfast, free wifi, free tea and coffee, use of the kitchen, luggage storage and late checkouts where possible are a few things that we find are of assistance to guests and can really make a difference.

Breakfast being provided was great. Good sized rooms and wardrobe space. Not too far from the city centre. Great access to pubs, cafés and shops just behind the lodge. Friendly staff were happy to give advice and provide help. Convenient off street parking.

Fabulous breakfast spread. Such a convenient location and friendly staff and other guests. As a middle aged but much travelled couple we loved our stay. Canberra was easy to get aroun d and fabulous places to see and to dine within close distance of transport or walking

We spent one night at this hostel. It was clean and nice bed & breakfast facility. Unlimited tea and coffee all the day at the dining room, except the kitchen is closed between 9pm to 7.15am. Friendly and helpful manager, and quiet room for a nice sleep with quiet streets surrounding. Shared clean bathrooms and toilets at short distances from all rooms, and a 100m walk shortcut to food court behind this B & B.
For walking distances, location is close approx. 0.5km from Kingston Station, if using train from Sydney, but a little bit far 2.3km from Capital Hills or 6km from CBD or Jollimont Transport Centre. Not a problem at all if using own car, or using Taxi to CBD which costs approx $20-22. Public transportation (Bus) to the CBD is at the main road (Wenworth Ave) with bus shelter approx 150m from this B & B, with 30 min interval at weekdays or 1 hour interval at weekends or public holiday.

Could not imagine a more convenient place to stay in Canberra.Close to shops, restaurants and transport. The staff were very helpful, the rooms and facilities were very clean. Breakfast was excellent - with access to tea and coffee at all times. The kitchen was well equipped, with fridge and freezer space. Sharing facilities was really not a major inconvenience.Still the best value in town!!

The room and amenities were clean and adequate. The dining room was excellent. It was great to be able to make a cup of tea at any time and to have access to the kitchen and guest fridge. The staff were very friendly, obliging and helpful. The bus timetable was a real bonus. I would have liked a bit more light to read the numbers on the security box for after hours entry. Very close to shops and the bus stop which was great.
