Stayed here for two nights while visiting our daughter who is travelling, this was not a pleasant experience and we had one of the better rooms with a bathroom. It's definitely a backpackers place and certainly not my idea of heaven and one I won't be repeating

I was in this place for a few weeks and it was terrible. I had bedbugs in my bed for two weeks and the owners Robbie and Otto (very unpolite and rude) didn´t change my room. It is very comun in this place. ALSO, the kitchen and the bathrooms have horrible smell. If you have a postal package that someone...

Our guest rooms were ok and the ventilator as well but the share bathroom was always dirty. Looks like that they never clean it. The curtain shower has fungus over all and the toilet not clean. Even they put the paper tower over dirtys one. Ask for refund and couldn't. Not only that, you have to carry ur own luggage...

My room was a single, with v comfortable double bed, desk, large room. Otto was a great host, polite, helpful. Robbie, equally helpful, particularly when I left my keys in the desk and needed them mailed to Melbourne. Many of the occupants are students and there are shared cooking facilities if you need. Nice location just off Bondi Rd, about...

Really enjoyed the stay at Sinclairs Bondi. Otto was very helpful for my late check-in and pointed me to the nearest (best) Thai restaurant...I had a great stay and enjoyed the banter with Otto and Robby their humour...and their advice was priceless!! The beach was a healthy distance but I really did enjoy the walk there and back...and the surf...

I love this small guesthouse! It's in a quiet area, but only a few minutes walk to restaurants. 15/20 minutes walk to Bondi beach and Tamarama beach. Esay to reach down town Sydney by bus. Nice clean rooms, breakfast is simple but ok.

Sinclairs has had a bed bug problem at least once before (see reviews from Oct. 2012 - unless they've been deleted). To be fair, bed bugs can be a problem at any kind of accommodation. However, the way both the manager and owner at Sinclairs dealt with the bed bugs I found in my room when I stayed there last...

I went with my 16 year old son to Australia and we were traveling on a budget. We loved the Sinclairs! We got a room on the top floor with a private bathroom. It had a nice view and you could make tea or coffee every morning. Otto was a wonderful person who gave us a lot of very useful...

Sinclair apartments are affordable, a short distance from the bondi beach , closer to frequent buses , nearer to shops and 30 minutes from Sydney international airport. A range of family room accommodation with ensuites make the stay comfortable.

“The queen sized room at the front was spacious, but had night traffic. The double room at the back was quieter in terms of traffic noise, but the walls were a bit thin, so you could hear your neighbours.”
