Guest Reviews

"Thank you Sleeping Out for your superb Website; user friendly, quick responses, useful and accurate links, photos and information.
Excellent Customer Service!
Pleasurable Service experience throughout, from beginning of search, to booking enquiry and right to the end, confirmation of booking."

- Sharon Burnett

"Website is easy to utilize and prompt with the replies.
We have only experienced prompt and friendly service.

The only recommendation I could make is: when we have to make payment, to give the option to make a deposit or a full settlement. I prefer to pay my accommodation in full prior to departure. "

"The website is very user friendly, I will use it more often to search for accommodation. It was efficient and responses were prompt and with feedback for every step that was taken. Utmost professionalism is displayed through out when you interact through this website. I would recommend it to my friends actually I have to the few that has told me about their challenges of securing accommodation."

"The enquiry and booking process was quick and easy, making it a pleasure to look for accommodation in specific areas. The search and booking process suited my lifestyle and preferences. I like simple, quick, no fuss processes. My experience with sleeping-out was a pleasant one.

What would be an added advantage is to be able to view suburbs with additional information about the area in terms of safety (if that doesn't compromise the credibility of the establishments in less safe areas). I can't recall if the functionality existed whereby one could select accommodation based on proximity to gas stations, shopping centres, beaches? Based on certain selection criteria, it could help to narrrow down a search to accommodation that meets most of your travel requirements depending on your needs i.e. Traveling without own transport, the need to be close to the airport, beach or shopping centres.
