Excellent value for money. Spotless room with all basic needs met. Virginia at the desk was extremely welcoming, helpful and consistently cheerful. Lack of elevator might be an issue for some. I would happily return there next time in Sydney but will ask for a room well away from smoking area as on one occasion smell came through bathroom air... More

Affordable accommodation within a walking distance from CBD. The room for 4 was rather small though but otherwise good and friendly staff makes our stay memorable. Quiet and comfortable area to stay for holidaymaker with readily accessible public transport.

Very happy with everything, the size of rooms, the facilities, the service was great nothing a problem, room made up every day. The only down side was the stairs (no lift) but once luggage in room it wasnt a problem. Awesome.

Good amenities, close to buses, trains. Service was excellent. Knowledgeable and helpful front of house staff. Great restaurants nearby. Bit of a problem with rats around the rubbish bin area. Seems a safe area to walk around.

Very efficient check in and check out. Friendly staff. Lots of nice eating place, Halal cafes and restaurants around Surrey Hills. It is a nice and quiet neighborhood, not too far away from the city. You can actually walk back and forth, which I did.

The hotel was great! We brought a group of 30 students and the hotel was able to accommodate us well. Each room was a Studio so it made our stay even more affordable. It is very close to the railway station and several parks. I would definitely stay here again.
