    MELISSA February 2016
  • Best experience, booked 2 separate stays here. Great location, beautiful views, host is super chill and very friendly/accomodating. Would book again.

    MELISSA February 2016
  • Shani was an excellent host. Friendly and accommodating. She went out of her way to wait for my arrival at 2am in the morning. Apartment is exactly in the photos - cosy, inviting, clean, tidy, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Location is convenient with public transport, shopping places and markets within walking distance. Will not hesitate to recommend to others and will definitely stay with Shani again if I visit Melbourne!

    Sharon January 2016
  • Great location, nice hostess, clean apartment, third time booking ! Close to shops, walking distance to everything.. City views!

    MELISSA March 2016
  • It was such a wonderful stay at Shani's apartment. Such a sweet, clean and quite room with an independent bathroom just next to it. Less than 10 minute walking distance to CBD area and all other shopping precinct. I would highly recommend Shani's place to everyone who will visit Melbourne.

    Kimi March 2016
  • Shan was a fantastic host! She was very friendly and helpful, and also let you enjoy your own privacy. You were free to use the kitchen and all facilities. Bedroom and bathroom were very clean. And Shani provided extra towels for guests to use. Her apartment was 2min walk from Flagstaff train station in the CBD. Very central location, within walking distance to what the city has to offer. An awesome experience.

    Yinan March 2016
  • Shani's house is very nice~!! You can see the perfect light sight in balcony. ;) And you can use very clean and modern style room and toilet. That's so nice :) I will never forgot so friendly and kindly Shani. Thank you Shani~ :)

CBD cosy room-verified female guest
$ 48 AUD Per night
Apartment is small but sunny and light, with a nice outlook. Surrounded by restaurants, bars and student cafes. Trams at doorstep, next to Melbourne Central railway station. Opposite State Library, close to main sports arenas and universities.
Close to the best of Melbourne: State Library, Federation Square, Victoria Art Gallery, MCG, Melbourne Park (Australian Open), Botanical Gardens, Melbourne University, RMIT, restaurants, cinemas, shopping. Small but adequate kitchenette. Surrounded by eateries of every variety. Coin washer and dryer available next to apartment. I will either meet you at the apartment, post you a keycard or leave it for you at reception if you are arriving during reception house. Apart from that, you'll be on your own.
Swanston Street is a hot spot for music and food. State Library forecourt is a great gathering place. Please note this is the central city so if you are seeking a quiet spot, this is not for you. Melbourne University and RMIT University a few minutes away. A Unilodge operates from the building but my apartment is separate. Trams and railway station at the doorstep. Tram travel around the central city is free. I will leave MYKI cards which you need to travel on trains or trams out of the city centre. You will need to load them up it's about $8 a day for all-day travel. Bicycles for hire across the road for a daily fee of $2.80. Heaps of attractions within a few minutes walk. From airport, take a taxi to the apartment (about $50), or catch the airport bus to the city and get them to drop you off near the intersection of Little Lonsdale and Swanston Street. If you're travelling by train, get off at Melbourne Central Station and look for the Swanston Street exit. There are ceiling fans but there is no air conditioner (it's a heritage building) so it does get hot after a succession of hot summer days. Melbourne can be very hot in summer. On the other hand, it can be mild. If you feel the heat, you might want to choose another place in summer.
  • Catherine was upon our arrival. She was very welcoming, explained us what there was to know to move, food, etc.... The accommodation was completed for 2 people, very well situated and well equipped. We could not hope better. We shall return to it gladly

    Alia November 2015
  • I enjoyed my stay. Catherine was very welcoming and the little extras like her homemade jam were a treat. Everything was as described. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The view over the State Library was spectacular.

    Peter February 2016
  • Catherine Watson es una EXCELENTE persona con un hosting de altísima calidad. Lo primero de todo es que Catherine nos recibió al llegar a Melbourne, muy atenta y siempre ayudando. Como somos veganos necesitábamos saber sitios para comer vegetarianos y Catherine nos asesoró de todas las opciones de la zona. Al llegar a la casa, había muchos detalles: bombones, cremas, jabones y útiles de baño, fruta fresca, un periódico, abundantes recursos como papel higiénico, aceite de oliva virgen y algo increible: el frigorífico lleno de comida y bebidas. Además nos dejó hasta una tarjeta de tren (una para mi y otra para mi esposa), valoradas cada una en 10 dólares y monedas para la lavandería... Además de ésto, había calefacción que funcionaba muy bien, una televisión Samsung que permitía meter películas por USB, revistas y presa especializada y hasta un portatil LAPTOP con cámara para hacer (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) !!! La casa de Catherine "absolutely central Melbourne" es ideal para pasar los 15 primeros días de estancia en Melbourne, y el edificio en el que se encuentra está lleno de universitarios, en pleno centro de la ciudad. Delante de la casa a dos pasos, está la Biblioteca State Library con internet Wifi y todas las comodidases extra. Sinceramente, creo que ha sido imposible encontrar una mejor opción y estamos muy contentos de haber elegido a Catherine como nuestra primera opción. El precio aunque parezca más caro que otras opciones, es que "lo merece" :) En resumen: la cama super cómoda, un portátil con una internet de 256Kb justa para ver páginas-email y (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) con cámara, una televisión Samsung moderna con entrada para USB para ver películas DIVX-MP4 bajadas de internet, un baño perfecto con su ducha y todo muy limpio, e incluso con el suelo con funda térmica... la casa es muy pequeña pero ideal para una pareja que recién llega a Australia. Mi esposa y yo somos ingenieros y hemos encontrado este lugar muy acogedor. Sólo deseo felicitar a Catherine por tan buen alojamiento que nos ha bridado estos días. Gracias.

    JUAN PEDRO April 2015
  • Catherine's place was perfect for my parents, who were visiting from interstate. Sitting right on top of the Melbourne Central train station and myriad tram lines - public transport is easy! It is inner city for sure so the sounds of the city are present but were not overpowering. Catherine left Myki passes for transport, change for the washing machine and all of the kitchen necessities. If you want a place in Melbourne that can be your HQ for getting around the city and out into the suburbs when needed - this is your place!

    Callum May 2016
  • Although I did not get the chance to meet Catherine in person, she has been a very nice & accommodating host. As Melbourne is like a 2nd home to me, the location is right smack in the central - directly opposite the State Library ( a very good location). The place is exactly like the photos. Just a few mins walk you can get to Woolies (which is just across the street in QV shopping mall) & Coles (which is just in Melbourne Central). There are a lot of food stores (Subway is just downstairs) within walking distance. The apartment is very clean and the kitchenette (most condiments that you can think of are provided) is adequate for proper cooked food. Myki cards are being provided as well. As ceiling fans are the only cooling option in this apartment (aircon is not available), during summer time it maybe too hot to stay in (if you are the type of person who needs to be in an aircon room 24/7). As for me, the ceiling fans are pretty cooling at dusk (most of the daytime, I was out exploring anyway). Trains & trams are right at doorstep too. Thank you for the cozy experience! Really enjoyed staying.

    Cynthia March 2016
  • The apartment was not really suitable for us. It was in a student block and noisy, and basic.

    peter September 2015
  • Catherine is a great host. She made us feel very welcome without being intrusive. She was flexible regarding our arrival time and touches like leaving us myki transport cards to use made our stay in Melbourne much easier. The apartment is sunny and has a great view. We really valued how central it is. It's quite basic but clean and fresh and we liked being there. Thanks Catherine!

    Lucy September 2015
  • Catherine est une personne très douce et sympathique, elle nous a très bien accueillie dans son incroyable appartement, et a prévue tout ce qu'il fallait pour que nous passions un bon séjour ! La vue de l'appartement sur la "state library" est tout simplement superbe, l'appartement lui-même est très bien équipé ( tout ce qu'il faut !! ) et très bien agencé ! Le quartier est très vivant, très animé, tout est a proximité ( restaurants, bar, supermarché, tram, bus, boutiques de shopping ... ), parfait pour une immersion totale dans Melbourne !

Absolutely central Melbourne
$ 110 AUD Per night
This ideal location is opposite the Yarra River, Flinders St. Station and Melbourne's Arts Precinct. Perfect for a visitor to easily explore and immerse themselves in the colourful, friendly, art driven city. Apartment-lovely design and New Sept '14!
It is an inner city apartment without the closed in feeling as it borders the city on Flinders Street and looks over to the Yarra River and Botanic Gardens (which you can see from the Rooftop). My apartment looks into the courtyard which means it is cosy and quiet. As you leave the building you are confronted with some of Melbourne's most iconic buildings and features which makes for an exciting location as you can immediately immerse yourself in Melbourne's delights. The location is actually a little bit perfect! You have access to the complete apartment space, I even leave my bedroom door open in case you need a full length mirror! The gym, rooftop and T.V room are free for you to use also. I am quite interactive with guests and enjoy the positive energy they bring into my space. I will give you tips/help in anyway I can and happily give you a mini tour if you need!
Friendly, diverse, interesting, quality, artistically minded, cosmopolitan. Soooo close to all public transport! Although the picture shows a mattress on the floor it is a proper single bed now!
  • Staying in Monique's apartment was a lovely experience. Monique made me feel very welcome and was happy to have a chat when I was around. The apartment itself is clean, small and very conveniently located to Fed Square. Perfect if you're on the go during the day.

    Daniel March 2016
  • This place was a Incredible. Its in a fantastic location, a central space to explore and check out the vibrant city of Melbourne. The apartment was perfect. I highly recommend. Monique was a great host. She is a vibrant person who really lives a life of passion. Has great musical taste too!

    Brendon March 2016
  • Monique was incredibably friendly and helped me settle into Melbourne. She had some great insights of what to do in the city and was really welcoming of me in her home. The apartment is really tranquil for such a central location.

    Faye September 2015
  • Monique was a very welcoming host and always happy to give advice on good places to visit and how to get around. I stayed for 4 weeks and had a wonderful time. The apartment is in a great location and I could walk anywhere quite comfortably; it's also close to public transport if you need to go further afield.

    James March 2016
  • Monique was a lovely host (loaned me an umbrella!) and flexible when my flight was late. Excellent location, really nice amenities.

    Tamsin January 2016
  • Monique was a lovely host, very friendly and had a great place! Incredible location in the heart of the city.

    Jason October 2015
  • Fab location and host. Monique is such a lovely individual and her little apartment is the same. The room is small but perfect for people using it as a base. It now has a cute single bed too so no longer just a comfy matress. Would highly recommend it and will hopefully stay again!

    Kate October 2014

  • We stayed five nights here - excellent location, easy walking distance to Queen Victoria Markets and also well-placed for exploring Melbourne CBD. The views were beautiful through the ceiling-to-floor windows, and the block-out blinds work very well if you want a bit of a sleep-in. Apartment itself is new, very clean and comfortable, and exactly as described and shown in photographs. Lovely shower and bed, and fully equipped - washer and dryer, dishwasher and kitchen appliances to prepare meals. Free Wi-Fi was a huge plus too. Nadia and Adji went above and beyond to help accommodate our stay dates, and were pleasant and efficient communicators. No problems at all with collecting keys and returning them. Overall you couldn't ask for better value for your money - thanks for helping make our stay in Melbourne such a pleasant one :)!

    Inez January 2016
  • Stayed at Adji's apartment for 5 days and found the apartment exactly as described in the pictures . What I found most useful was that it came fully equipped with a washer and dryer which came in handy after my month Long stay in New Zealand and a nicely laid out kitchen which had everything you need if you wanted to stay in and made your own meals. The apartment was situated in a perfect location that made it easily accessible to the shops and eateries and food markets Melbourne is famous for. Thank you I enjoyed my stay very much.

    Stephen Mark January 2016
  • This place is just amazing! A step away from Melbourne Central. Easy to go everywhere in the city, especially by tram. Nadia and Adji been a very great host, as they are prompt and responsive at all times. Place were 5 star clean, free nespresso coffee in the compartment. Summing up, beyond my expectation! Awesomeness level 99999

    Baim January 2016
  • Loved our stay here. Everything was new and very clean. Great location easy to get everywhere in the city. Our host was very accomodating to our requests. Would stay here again.

    Carolyn May 2016
  • The apartment is perfect. New, and perfect location. It is a 20th floor, so views are nice All works perfect, washing machine, dryer etc It does not have a table, so, if you plan dinner in it, be aware Also, it has no curtains or blinds so make sure you are prepared so light does not wake you up

    Andres January 2016
  • Loved this little gem, great location, it's a one bedroom with a fold out sofa bed. Very comfortable and clean. Only thing missing was Champagne or wine glasses and perhaps a couple of Nespresso pods, as there is a machine there. Overall fantastic stay. Great communication with Nadia to let us in too. Will come back again.

    Nick March 2016
  • What a great choice when staying in Melbourne. Walk everywhere or catch that free tram around the City. Melbourne central is a few minutes walk away and my son surprised me by visiting that supermarket to purchase ingredient s to cook me a meal . The view was like being in downtown New York . The hosts were very friendly and punctual. Recommend this chic apartment .

    Sharon & Made March 2016
  • Adji and his team were excellent! The apartment was excellent for my girlfriend and I to stay in! It has been maintained at a high standard, very clean and homely! Would definitely recommend staying here again!

Located in the centre of the city it has easy access to trains, trams and the airport shuttle. Being located on one of Melbourne's main streets it oozes the Melbourne feel. Private bedroom with Queen bed which looks out onto the Melbourne Skyline.
Apart from my bedroom guests will have access to the entire apartment. They can use the kitchen, lounge and bathroom whenever they choose. The bathroom is shared with me however I am often at work from the early hours and so this makes for easy for guests to have the bathroom whenever they desire. I work on a rostered scheduling basis. I am happy to have the guest come and go and have a chat when we are in the apartment together. I am happy to answer any questions about Melbourne and make suggestions on where I like to go or what I think would suit within the guests schedule :)
My apartment has trams running along my street and on turning both left and right the 2 main streets that you meet will have trams running to everywhere that you need to go :) 2 blocks south is the famous Flinders station and 2 blocks north is Melbourne Central Train station inside one of the cities main shopping centres. Airport - Getting the skybus is easy, then all you need to do is get any of the trams running along Collins into the city and hop off at Swanston St
  • Victoria is so nice and friendly ~ the apartment is lovely . We had a great time in Melbourne:)

    Jia April 2016
  • Victoria was lovely and very friendly and she made a special to make me feel comfortable. The apartment is between Flnders Street Station and the Bourke Street Mall so the location is prefect. It is an older building and the room is small but there was absolutely no noise from the street so I slept like a baby!!! I will definitely stay there again.

    Jen May 2016
  • I really enjoyed my stay with Victoria. First of all, location is awesome, since I had very little time in Melbourne, it was key for me to do all shopping and get to different places fast, Victoria's apartment is in the middle of the city, perfect! She was very welcoming and helpful, even helped me return a rental car I was unable to return myself (Thank you so much, Victoria, really appreciated your help). Space was clean, room looks exactly like the pictures with good natural light. Would definitely stay there again next time and recommend to friends who are visiting Melbourne.

    Jeanette April 2016
  • Une jolie chambre dans un petit appartement super bien situé au centre de Melbourn. Nous avons vu Victoria uniquement à notre arrivée, on a été très libre dans l'appartement et pour nous c'était top! Thank's Victoria, see you

    Stéphanie November 2015
  • 公寓的位置不能再赞了!就在cbd 的中心,均可步行到达,到联邦广场走路不到5分钟,楼下就是免费的电车,可以去维多利亚女王市场和南十字火车站。房主也特别热心,帮我查了近期墨尔本的所有活动,还帮我把路线写到小卡片上。厨房也有很多调料可以用。推荐!

    Amber March 2016
  • Victoria was a fabulous host. She was easy to communicate with, super friendly and flexible with check in/check out times. The apartment being opposite the town hall and a few minutes walk to Bourke St mall made it extremely convenient to get to everywhere. The bed is also super comfortable.
