I was moving to Sydney for work and had to stay at a temporary accommodation while searching for a more permanent place. Rental in Sydney is really expensive and as someone who just started work, I was reluctant to spend too much - so I was relived when I found GVA.
Firstly, GVA is conveniently located - 10 minutes away from St Leonards station. Secondly, it is also reasonably priced. At the time of my stay, I was fortunate to be able to charge the winter special that included breakfast and dinner for a single room. The rooms were well-equipped with wardrobe, desk, chair and bed. The place is well-kept - clean shared toilets, single gendered floors (other than the 3rd floor). Also, the people who work there were extremely friendly and helpful, which makes the stay even more pleasant. Best of all, it was a great place to make new friends as I settled into a new city! Many people I met there were on internships and others, students from Macquarie University.
One thing I would have liked was hot breakfast during weekdays, freshly cooked vegetables for dinner and a more comfortable bed (it was too soft for my liking). The food was generally quite decent, more hits than misses, and the desserts are always a crowd pleaser.
For a building that has been around for more than 20 years, it is well-maintained, with a renovated TV room and table tennis table for the occasional evening recreation.
For an affordable short stay away that is not too far away from the city, and a place to meet great friends - I would highly recommend Greenwich Village Accommodation!
