It’s in a good position though parking is difficult. We had to move the car every two hours from 8am. Room is tiny. There were no blankets just a sheet and light cover so we had to keep the heater on all night as it’s the middle of winter. Ok for a quick overnight overall. Like a youth hostel.

Was over charged twice to the sum on nearly $300, every contact number goes to message bank or is ignored.

Only downside to my stay was other guests being inconsiderate with the noise levels.

I was there for a very short time, but the room was clean and staff helpful. Some guests weren't very good at flushing the toilet in the shared bathroom facilities but otherwise it was a pleasant place to stay.

Thank you for your review. 10am check out is standard across majority of accommodation places, as this allows housekeepers to clean rooms and communal areas prior to next lot of check ins at 2pm.

Rustic, communal and fun.

Pros: Clean and good kitchen
Cons: Insulation and air conditioning would help. Very hot and stuffy rooms on third floor.
Location: Very well located - close to beach
It's not 5 star, but, if you are looking for a cheap, comfortable stay and you don't mind sharing a bathroom, then the Manly Guest house is for you. Clean and a great, well equipped little communal kitchen. Brought back memories of those rustic cheap pensiones in Europe.

Thank you for your review, the building will be undergoing some changes in the coming months and we are looking at air conditioning to rooms. We do hope that you return in the future to see the changes.
