Worst hotel, rudest staff, they take the bond out of your account before you get to see the room. When your first checking in. When in fact they should only be holding your details until you check out then if any damage is done money should be deducted. Not impressed, tried to fraud me & my friends, manager refused to...

My dad is here to visit me from Scotland and we seen a deal on lastminute.com for this hotel. I put in a request for us to check in 11 and when I called in the morning to ask if it was at all possible the manager said to me "I'm not just going to kick all my guests out... More

Do not stay at this hotel! There is almost impossible to get hold of the staff. There is no reception only a phone number. On arrival we got our room 3(!) hours late. The excuses were many and they all did not make sense. When we asked when the room would be ready (time is now 5:30) the only said... More

Paid $220 per night and it was like stay at a hostel. We had to forfeit our payment because there is no way we could stay at this 'hostel'. We didn't need anything fancy but the beds were horrendous and you practically had to sit on the toilet to be able to close the bathroom door.

It was quite late when we arrived Sydney. Took the train and reached King Cross station. Didn't know whether we should take the left or the right turn. Walked for about 10 minutes and finally found the hotel. Luckily when we arrived, the host is still there and got us to the room. It was located at the so called... More

It is incredibly inexpensive (i got a 7 day deal for 480 on booking.com), very flexible with baggage before and after (when i checked out i was told i could leave my... More

Large room on the ground floor. Very cheap which is great on a budget. The problem came when; on check in credit card details were taken to hold $200 that would be charged in case of any possible incidental damages etc. No keys were lost and there were no damages. It took 11 days for $140 to be returned to... More

Trying to stay on a budget is insanely challenging in Sydney and this is all I could afford without staying in a backpackers. It was actually ok but not for people who like a really nice cushy bed and crisp linens. We needed two singles or double beds but they only had a double and sofa bed, so I ended... More

Nice personnel, average accommodation: our room was fine, the one our friends had was mouldy smelling. Good location, at walking distance from the Sydney city centre (1 km from Botanical garden, 1,5 from City centre). Shops and restaurants are at the street - you can choose fast food or something else.

It is really old, but it was cheap and location ideal for us. They really helped us with an application for a flat, printing stuff, giving advice, and gave us a reference for the landlord. Thanks heaps!
