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!

Old building which is falling apart, lots of cockroaches, very noisy when Kings Cross patrons stay (which is often!), Sally is a shockingly bad manager; lazy, rude, causes problems and makes mountains out of molehills. Sheets were clean (thank good) but the horrid cheap throws on the beds were disgusting. Bathrooms were pretty clean (you can tell by the overwhelming... More

Worst place EVERRRR. I have stayed at hostels that had better service and rooms. It's smell awful like a dead peopl are living inside. The rooms have stains all over. But I'm more disgusted the way I had been spoken to. The blonde hair lady Sally who sits outside most of the night smoking and drinking and telling ppl off... More

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
