The room is a large private room in a stylish 2 bedroom, ground floor apartment. The room is usually the living room of the apartment, so it has a sofa bed, however, during your stay, your room is completely private, with frosted glass doors (see pictures), there is a lock for your room so your belongings are safe. The room is very spacious and easily accommodate 2 people.
The kitchen and bathroom will be shared myself and other Airbnb guests.
** The room is on the side of a main road, so it does get noisy with traffic noise, please do not book if this might be a problem. **

A bike is available for rent for a small fee, please make enquiries during your booking Interaction with GuestsI work and I am out a lot so I am not home much, but I am always happy to answer any questions about things to see and do and give advice about best food, coffee, drinks and places to visit in this great city. The NeighborhoodFootscray is a very multi-cultural area, with a large African and Asian community and a thriving artist and student population. However, like many of the hip suburbs in Melbourne (St Kilda, Brunswick, Fitzroy, Collingwood), Footscray has working class roots. I like it because it's diverse, convenient, close to the city centre (6kms) with great transport links (4 train lines). However, it might not suit everyone, please do some research about the area before booking to ensure this is suitable for you. Getting AroundPublic transport is convenient, Footscray train station is about a 4 minute walk away and from there it’s a 15 minute train ride to Melbourne CBD.
Footscray station is served by multiple train lines
which means getting to the CBD is easy as you never have to wait too long for a train.
The bus stop for Route 220 is directly in front of the apartment and will take you into the city in about 15 - 20 minutes.
Access from Tullamarine Airpot
From Tullamarine Airport, it is about a $55 - $65 taxi ride and take around 30 mins (if your arrival is out of peak hours, ask the taxi driver not to take the toll)
Otherwise, you can catch the Skybus ($18 per person, per way), the bus ride is about 40 mins to Southern Cross Station. From Southern Cross Station, get on the Werribbe, Williamstown, Sunbury line, Laverton, Watergarden line and stop at Footscray Station. It is about a 15 min train ride to Footscray (Myki card $6, 2 hour Myki fare $3.7 ) and from Footscray train station, it is about a 4 minute walk to my place. All up if you take the Bus and Train route, it's about 1.5 hours and $45 Other Things to NoteDISCOUNTS - The room has daily, weekly, monthly and couple pricing, if you input your requirements (dates, number of guests), Airbnb will calculate the correct rate for you. Please do not inquire about discounts, it will be automatically declined.
This listing is a clean, comfortable and I think beautiful apartment. Perfect for young, independent travellers, who are conscious of how to be respectful in a shared space. If you are looking for a hotel experience, where everything is immaculate this is not the right listing for you.
Not suitable for children, infants, or single males over the age of 40.
The room is on the side of a main road, so it does get noisy with traffic noise, please don't book if this may be a problem. If noise is an issue, I have a quieter, smaller room which maybe more suitable.
