Yong is one of the receptionists in St George and she's really friendly and remembers all tenants. This is my second stay here but the reason why I decided to stay here again is simply because she's here. In addition the location is great and the price is reasonable.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for about a year. The kitchen and lounge are really spacious. It using a really good location; right in the middle of the city. The staff are amazing and so helpful, especially Yong! Overall great experience. I'd recommend it for short or long term stays.

The rooms are spacious and clean. I was in a shared room, with two beds and a shared bathroom. The backpackers is for long term-ers so there are a lot of people working. The common room area is huge, with plenty of room to relax and play pool, or watch TV. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

I'm an international from Vietnam and I stayed at Hotel St George for about 10 months. Excellent location (10 mins to Uni, supermarkets, Sunday markets, buses and trains etc.), friendly staff, and very safe. I'll return to St George after my summer vacation to continue my study :)!
