We operate a private residents bar and outdoor BBQ area for the exclusive use of our guests.

Pass St Marys Cathedral on your right; go through the sets of traffic lights down the hill (the street now is called Douglas Gardens). Belford Hostel is on the right hand corner at the bottom of the hill, before the bridge.

From Waverley Train Station
When you exit the train station turn left onto Princes Street (Castle should be on your left...unless they've moved it). Continue along Princes Street which eventually turns into Shandwick Place. Continue down this road and turn right into Palmerston Place. Our funky church is located at the end of this street. Your other option is to catch a cab at a taxi stand just outside the station. A cab ride will cost you approximately 4.00.

From Haymarket Train Station
Exit the train station and turn right towards the city centre. Continue along West Maitland Street and turn left onto Palmerston Place (just before the Starbucks). Continue along this Street and we are located in the Church at the end.
