Not as bad as the other reviewers are making out. Yes, it's a bit old and shabby but my room was clean and well equipped. For the price in that area, a good deal I would say. The staff are friendly and very helpful. In fact, Sally went out of her way to help with renting a car, something she... More

This was quite possibly the dirtiest, smelliest hotel I gave ever stayed in. There were fleas ( or some other bitey things) in the carpet. The room was dark, mouldy smelling and in very poor condition. I would've moved out but i was there for two nights only and thought I'd put up with it. The traffic noise was incredible.... More

Teenaged daughter and 2 friends have now learnt important lessons. Cheap is quite often nasty and research, research, research. I was horrified when I looked up the reviews after they booked this dive. I am glad I went with them to check in. Had to sign up for a $200 credit card security deposit ( I did get it back)... More

This place is awful, it's dirty, it's in desperate need of refurbishment, there was paint peeling off the walks, the carpets were filthy. We actually tolerated two nights here but that was only because no where in Sydney could accommodate us and our 3 children. My daughter cried herself to sleep both night because it was so horrible, we had... More

What a crappy hotel, the beds were horrible, with foam mattress and a plank of PVC underneath it- so it felt as if you were sleeping on a slab of concrete. The carpet had more stains on it than a crime scene. The appliances were all plugged into a power board suspended in the air (no safety electrical testing done... More

We read the reviews on TripAdvisor after booking - so arrived with dread. But it was nowhere near as bad as some of these reviewers make out. OK, so a bit of a problem getting into the place (because we were not travelling with a mobile) but once in, no problem. Very clean - cleaner than some of the fancy... More

We stayed here for 3 nights as nowhere else available. Cost 100 dollars per night and was very basic hotel room. Wasn't like the pictures posted on line. We got a bigger room as was over booked and mistake made. No receptionist and had to phone to get into hotel. Rooms had microwave which didn't work and kettle for making... More

Traveled with adult family. We booked for our last night so we could get back to the airport. The photos online are highly staged or extremely old, as the room that we stayed in was a much dirtier version. You have to ring the bell to get inside the building (or call a number if no one answers apparently). The... More
