I spent a lot of time trying to find somewhere to stay in for a week in Sydney that was reasonably priced and eventually picked Verona on the basis of its 5* reviews. I suspect they're mostly written by people who only stayed a night or two. It was noisy (despite asking for a quiet room we got one at the front of the house overlooking the main road, and you could hear every move the guest upstairs made), not particularly friendly (the owner and his daughter had regular screaming matches when they thought no-one could hear them... which in that house was impossible) and not particularly fresh (they only clean your bedroom once a week, and the bathroom has damp problems which they try and hide with an air freshener).
It's in a nice area with a regular bus service into the centre of town, but if I return to Sydney I'll try my luck somewhere else.
