"As I am working in Sydney, I love that the Jolly has a great balance between long termers and new guests. It is like one big family here.
The facilities are nice and clean. Both rooms and common areas are cleaned on a daily basis. Staff are welcoming, however I am awaiting on the Portuguese flag for the front of the building ;)
24/7 reception is a big plus.
Great location close to the clubs but just far enough away to avoid the noise. 15 minute walk to the centre of Sydney.
The biggest compliment I can pay is the fact that I have been here for 4 months… and counting!!"
