All I can say about this place is don't stay here!! Bed is hard, room tiny, bedding yucky, bright lights come in through the windows all night, and the noise. OH MY GOOD you will not sleep a minute in here. They have a lot of multi-day bookings and will not refund a cent when you realize how bad the... More

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. I was there for five nights. The towels were not changed in that time. The bed was not made and the room was not cleaned. The elactrics were dodgy and the room was the smallest I have seen outside of Japan. The management desk was not manned outside of 9... More

Booked the room online for a single night and from the start there was excellent communication. It's a family run business and they went out of their way to assist us as we were arriving earlier than the book in time of 2pm and allowed us a little extra time to leave. The location is great, about 10 minute walk... More

My room was spotless with a recently renovated ensuite. The bed was comfortable and the room was equiped with everything I needed. The only problem was window blind which let in way too much light, especially as the room faced a busy road with street and traffic (car) lights. Apart from that, I had a very comfortable stay.

The location as out of the city chaos was good, about a 20 min walk to city and easy bus connection to beaches or paddington. Also just around the corner from fantastic Lebanese restaurants. The room though needs a serious makeover. Lucky it's reasonably clean and has a new ensuite as the room itself is in dire need of a... More

The Goodlet Lodge is a decent place to stay in a city where accommodation is pretty expensive. Rooms are adequate, the host was friendly and helpful, it is within walking distance of some decent bars, restaurants and coffee houses and is well located for public transport, i.e the bus stops right outside the door. We did walk to both the... More

Location - excellent, walking distance from the main sights and staggering distance from the nightlife in Oxford Street. (Plus of course plenty of awesome restaurants & pubs in Surry Hills itself). Price - VERY cheap (we paid $330 for 3 nights for 2 people - over a weekend, when prices are higher). The bed was very comfy & it was... More

I have stayed in some small rooms but this one takes the cake, wow! Hardly enough room to have 2 people stand up at the same time, I reckon it must have been converted from the cleaners closet. Only good point I could say was that the bathroom had obviously been modernised and was nice, was ok to stay for... More

Good central location in central Sydney. Near sights, buses, and restaurants. No breakfast included and no in-house restaurant. Reception very helpful. Gave advice on free tour of Sydney (tour started 1/2 hr late - not good if you have a tight schedule) Tiny room with basically a bed and bath. Clean once a week in order to "save water". Not... More
