The fabulous sign that lets you know where you are :)The ladder towards the mezzanine bed, it is rather steep and could be quite a challenge for some people.  If you have back problems I would ask you make sure this isn't a problem for you.  There is also an air mattress which is a good substitute

- Iconic studio apartment right at the start of Sydney road and a quick tram to the city. Separate bathroom and kitchenette with mezzanine bed. Everything you need, conveniently all in this one cozy spot.

- Newly renovated with brand new appliances and fixtures, you can see in the photos it has a sense of contemporary style with a vintage vibe. Supplied with Netflix, DVD's, PS4 and X1 (consoles available on request).

The space

- Is this your first time booking with Air bnb?! if so, use this link to get $50 off your first trip!

- You will feel like you're in New York when you stay here, the high ceilings give a very open feeling to the space and the view from the mezzanine bed is isn't too bad either :)

- Outside sounds are very well muted, even though Sydney road is very loud and busy most of the day.

- It's a cozy little spot that you will not doubt fall in love with straight away, but the amount of room is very limited. I have the listing stating three guests, but that is the preferred max, any amount of guests after two get charged $13 per person.

- Oven, an electric stove which can be very sensitive to the touch, just make sure you don't lean on it and turn it on. Just in case, the instruction manual is above the stove
- Cups, mug, plates, pots, pans, cutlery and an assortment of cooking utensils
- some snacks in the cupboards for anyone to have at, there are also a lot of spices and washing attire under the sink
- The microwave is situated in the TV unit under the TV as it is one of the only spots it really fits, is a little weird, but it grows on you :)


- Lovely vintage, mid century Scandinavian sofa bed, very comfy to lay on
- Mid century Scandinavian coffee table with all the remotes for everything
- A lovely reading light which emits a great amount of light, if quite helpful at night for the extra bit of light for the apartment

Good location for accessing city etc. great food places very short walk. Mostly quiet enough in the flat , just Saturday night traffic noise seemed much louder and went on until later.IGA just across the street where you can buy transport tickets.Tram stop to city literally next door . I personally found the couch bed extremely uncomfortable for sleeping , so maybe aim to check out the air mattress instead. The access to the sleeping loft is not for everyone . Unless you are sprightly and fit, probably not a good idea to plan on sleeping up there. Nice old building with good security and quiet neighbours . Good communal laundry downstairs.

My partner and I had the pleasure of staying at Ryans place for a period of 5 weeks while we settled into our new Melbourne lifestyle. The location is amazing, so close to everything you need along Sydney road and also all the public transport. Ryan is overly helpful and supplied us with everything we needed for our stay. Highly recommend this air bnb!

Ryan's place is in an excellent location and was a great base for a weekend in Melbourne. Getting up to the loft bed is definitely not for the faint of heart or anyone with any kind of injury.

Hello possible future guest, my name is Ryan Post and I have listed my gorgeous studio apartment at 'Ye Olde Lodge'! Firstly, because my partner and I need more room and at the moment an secondly, everyone needs to experience a night or two (or a month!) at 'Ye Olde Lodge' and completely fall in love with it as much as my partner and I have :)

I work in the family businesses (Eagle Hire, E Pole Hire and Eagle Fence) and am also a part time as an uber driver also. Always looking for new ventures in life and right now, air bnb is calling me (and you) to give you the studio experience you deserve.

In my spare time I like to play video games, be lazy on the couch, friends, movies and all the usual things.

If you have any enquiries about my listing, please do not hesitate to ask. I am more than happy to help everyone, anyway I possibly can.
