This is a great little pub that's true to the heritage of the area. It's a bit like taking a step back in time. The pubs seems to serve the old regulars and younger punters really well, and there's a lovely beer garden out the front for warmer evenings. Dunno about the accommodation side of things, but definitely a top... More

The check-in was easy, just went into the pub and they gave me the key. I had to carry my bags up the narrow stairs to get to the dorm room. The room was pretty small with 2 sets of bunk beds, so 4 beds in total. They did provide lockers under the bed and asked you to store your... More

The lady behind the bar was so helpful when we checked in, she even gave us her book to borrow to check out some tourist info. Clean, basic room with a small kitchen to make food. The price was great for a short walk into the centre.

This is a tiny inner city pub. Recent;y the restaurant has been renovated. Can't comment on the food. But as a little pub it has a great band playing most saturday nights. Very hard to dance lindy, rockabilly or RnR but not impossible. Most locals cannot dance so bring a dance partner. The music is from a regular local music... More

My husband and 3 freinds stayed here on a "mens" trip to Sydney. Tehy couldn't fault the value for money - honestly a teenagres backbacker costs more! And they were sure I would love it as great area and very rustic with lots of character - but only a short walk to entertainment areas !

Stayed for 4 nights - it was basic but comfy. Loved the proper pub downstairs with its wide array of drinks. The small kitchen was clean and very usable unlike some other budget accommodation. Enjoyed chatting with the other guests in the relaxed atmosphere of this hotel. Good value and an easy short walk from Darling Harbour.

Such a nice area, really cute accommodation. Free wifi and own private bathroom for a good price. Pretty small room and small TV! Owners are really lovely and friendly. Would recommend for travellers seeking budget accommodation.

Stayed here for two nights before catching a flight from Sydney. We arrived at around 11pm the first night so it was convenient to stay here due to the later check in times they allow. The accommodation is over the little pub which looks cute. Our room was a good size and although basic, had all we needed, although no... More
