Hello! I will be staying in Sydney for about 4 months starting in July. I have been looking at different accomodations. Has anyone heard of Sleeping With the Enemy? I am curious as to whether it is a good choice and what are the positives and negatives?

It's not as scary as it sounds. They offer dorm-style accomodations for people staying in Sydney or Cairns for at least one month. (I think the "enemy" referred to is backpackers...not entirely certain ) I've read up about it and it sounds great, but I haven't found very many testimonials. Hearing about it from someone who has stayed there will probably be more informative than reading their website a dozen times.

The photos look okay. The Sydney location is not bad but is not fabulous either.

Hey guys.
re Sleeping With The Enemy in oz. My girlfriend stayed with them both in sydney and cairns. Definately recommend them. In sydney they were way cheaper than any of the hostels and a million times better. We had our own room. We took our laptops and they provide unlimited wifi for free (we found net access to be really over priced in oz so this a real bonus). We shared with a really cool group of 5 other people. Our apartment was only a quick walk into the city centre. Cairns was even better as we had a great swimming pool which i think may have saved our lives as was so damn hot up there.
