Perfect budget hotel. Close to a lot of good restaurants and good location. We booked it for the queen size bedroom but we were upgraded. Also early checkin was made available to us. Overall a very great good experience. We would stay here again if we visit Sydney again.

For the price, this room is great. Its very small, but clean and comfortable. Its in a great location. Its close to the nightlife of Kings Cross and lots of great restaurants in Potts Point and Darlinghurst. Its also close to the train station and it is very easy to get to the city, Circular Quay and Darling Harbour.

Absolutely amazing hotel, guy at the desk was excellent and helped out a lot. Booked the room on bookings.com at a rate we couldn't believe (cheaper than the hostels) and was fantastic. In a great location about 20 second walk across from train station and with hundreds of great coffee/sandwich shops nearby. Cleanliness was incredible, and bathroom was amazing with... More

Being located close to many different restaurants was great. Access to the internet was a big plus. The personal attention of the front desk was very impressive and appreciated. Door to door airport shuttle. Close to the wharf and the opera although not walking distance. Great night sleep and a comfortable bed. The only downside was that you had to... More

We booked for two nights and liiked the location and the friendly staff. We had rooms high up which was ok although the elevator did not impress us much. The rooms were small but still OK with a view of the street in front of the hotel. Rooms were clean but a bit worn down. WiFi working ok although we... More

We were only staying here for one night before heading off the Cairns early the next morning however it was a great place to stay. Reception is manned 24 hours so it didn't matter that we arrived late and left at 3am, there was always someone there to help. The room was nice and clean, basic but it had everything... More

Interesting hotel, where to start, neat, clean, dark, comfortable, small room. the rooms on ground floor have no phone reception, luckily they have wifi, and they did mention this to me when I checked in. Perfect place to stay if you want a night out - directly opposite popular night clubs (world bar). Amazing shower, huge rain style shower head,... More

The staff were lovely and friendly and the rooms were clean. this hotel is noisy, has no sound proofing at all and the rooms are outdated. Creaky floor boards in the room and hallways left us feeling like we weren't alone. The bed was comfortable, but listening to people outside in the hall all night had us packing up and... More
