Namaste, Campsie House is an ideal travellers room. Ready to move in with all the mod-cons. This is an old house with lots of charm but is a bit worn. There has been some recent wood damage in the dinning area but the house is as shown for the most part. We are people are an easy going bunch. This is a arty, functional, house, thats has everything u need with an amazing garden. Room has plenty of space.

The space

We, as international travellers galore...know thats its not always easy to settle into a big city like Sydney. Its expensive and can be frustrating. This is an easy way to settle in for a very affordable price and with great people! Its a great old federation house, located in a very multicultural suburb, thats only a 20min train ride to the city!

We're currently 3 Europeans living at the house! Two girls, plus me Rod

We are environmentally concise and would ask you try and always conserve energy, power and water.

Guest access

Will have your own key and you can access the house and room at any hour.

Interaction with guests

We are a friendly bunch and love to chat. We can help you navigate the streets of Sydney or come up with a travel plan for all of Australia!

Other things to note

Safe and quite area. There's a corner shop and a chemist and coffee shop just a minute away, if you need anything urgent!

My stay with Rod was comfortable and I was made to feel welcome. My room was large with a comfortable innerspring mattress which they substituted for the futon that was there to start with. My only concern was that it is a cold and dark house and the only lounge area is a veranda with louvre windows which were always partly open, a concrete floor and not conducive to relaxing, even though there was a TV. Just too cold most of the time but then it is winter.

Really cool place. I just needed to do some work in town and a good and friendly place to stay. And that's what I found. The communication in to city was easy. And Campsie is a quite lively but still calm little center of its own...

Overall, I was satisfied with my stay at this shared house with a private room. I was temporarily the fifth addition for two months. Rod and his housemates were friendly and easy to live with: no drama, no crazy parties, no irritating habits, friends were over sporadically, dishes were done, lots of interesting conversations and personal space when needed. Everyone's mature, career-oriented and independent for a house of young professionals. The room itself is a good size (possibly the largest of the four). I slept OK. The futon bed was acceptable. Internet bandwidth was good by Australian standards. The wardrobe was a bit defective, but it worked fine and fit all my luggage. I'm glad the room came with an electric fan so I could handle Sydney's 35+ degree summer weather. I liked having a lock on my door since it otherwise wouldn't stay shut. The bedroom windows offered lots of natural light during the day. The common space isn't fancy, but I wasn't expecting much. The kitchen comes well-equipped because it's shared with professional cooks. The washroom served its purpose. I also appreciated having access to a laundry machine. Campsie is a multicultural community with affordable food (groceries and restaurants) and a variety of ethnic shops. You'll find all the amenities you need to settle in along the main street. The area is walkable. The train station to the city is nearby, too. The monthly rate was reasonable, all things considered, and the photos were accurate. My check-in and check-out experiences went well. Rod was generous with time on the last day when I needed it to temporarily store my things until I could move on to the next place. My only issue: I encountered more pests -- mostly bugs -- in the place than I'm used to, especially in the kitchen where the garbage bins are kept. I'm not surprised because, for some reason, it seems lots of Australian houses are built with gaps underneath doors, which doesn't make sense to me. Also, the windows were kept open because the house doesn't have air conditioning, so that also might explain the predicament. But Rod made an effort to remedy the situation by taking out the trash often and spraying the problem areas. I'd recommend this place to budget travellers and recent arrivals to Sydney.

What a great place to stay. Rod and the rest of the housemates are lay back and cool. I can highly recommend this accommodation.
