My name's Emily and I would recommend anyone to stay at GVA. I stayed at GVA for 3 weeks temporarily before I moved closer to my college. I had such a wonderful time at GVA. For my first time out of home I was very nervous however I very quickly settled in at GVA and I made some really lovely...

Thanks for taking the time to post a review Emily M. We're really happy that you had such a positive experience. Living outside of your own home for the first time can be a nerve-wracking experience and I'm so glad that you felt so at home here. Hope to see you again soon. Tom GVA Manager

My name is Jeremy and I lived at gva for a year while I was studying in Surry Hills in Sydney. On my first day there, I was given an exceptionally warm welcome by the staff and given a detailed tour of all the facilities, travel options, places to eat etc which I found very useful coming from a small...

Thanks very much for your kind words Jeremy - I'm very happy that you enjoyed your year with us. And I'll see what I can do about the new sunny yellow bathrooms - maybe a bit too bright first thing in the morning!

The joint is an absolute dive, the rooms are disgusting and the furniture is old and broken. I ran night clubs for years but the noise never ends and no discipline or respect for studying or for those who have to go to work. Food is included in the deal but don't get to carried away, the menu is nothing...

Thanks for your useful (and creative) feedback Dean. January in Sydney is always busy and the students are mostly on holiday. We do our best to keep noise to a minimum with a dedicated night time security guard. GVA is budget student accommodation - we encourage any potential visitors to call or email if in doubt whether it is suitable...

I stayed in GVA for 5 months whiles studying abroad. I have met some of the greatest people in this building. There is such diversity that you meet people from all cultures, all around the world. Sure, we partied at night, but the 10:30 PM curfew was strictly enforced by GVA security, and we therefore had to either return to...

My friend and I stayed here at the beginning of 2012. We were booked in for a month, whilst we worked in Sydney & had already paid the full amount in full. Arrived at around 10am to an empty office, and waited around for 20 minutes before anyone came to check me in. At first I though my tiredness was...

Thanks for the feedback NUR25a. You're obviously very upset that GVA was not what you were expecting and I apologise for that. I will have a look at our website to see if we can paint a more realistic picture of what budget student accommodation looks like. I'm sorry that you didn't think $260 per week including breakfast and dinner...

Stayed here for three weeks. Searching for accommodation in Sydney is an absolute nightmare, and GVA was our beacon of hope! The location is great: only five minutes walk to Wollstonecraft Station, and the train takes you to the city in less than 20 minutes (plus you get a postcard view of the Opera House enroute). The actual building isn't...

Thanks for the review Krisface - so glad you liked it here at GVA. Managing up to 160 students can be a noise challenge sometimes but we hope to strike the right balance between having fun and the necessity of sleep!
