The cosy Bat Cave (2.4m x 3.2m) offers a single bed, which means your toes won't be dangling and you're near the front door if you get the call. Buses at the end of the road go to the metropolis or you can mission it to city trains. There's plenty of free street parking. Marrickville offers rich cafe culture, vibrant weekend markets and cheap eats as well as small bars and funky live music venues, and even a microbrewery/pub. (There is also a double room available in the same house).
