My girlfriend went here with a friend a few weeks back and said great things, so this weekend we went along... I ordered muesli with yoghurt and banana, which was amazing, and my girlfriend had the veg breakfast, which she also loved. Her meal was toast, beans, mushroom, tomato and egg. She thought the tomato was a little underdone but... More

We stayed here three nights in early June, 2015. George, the owner, greeted us and offered good advice on using the local bus system to get around. The room is nothing special (we had a "triple" with a double bed and small single in one small space with an en suite and dorm-size fridge). But the room was clean and... More

This hotel is great value for money. Good location close to many bars and restaurants, but quiet enough for a good nights sleep. The room was clean, and had everything we needed for a comfortable 6 night stay. The included breakfast served in the cafe, was cooked to order, with great tasty choices. George was so helpful recommending places to... More

This hotel fits the niche of affordable accommodation in Sydney that is not a hostel. I wanted a private room with my own bathroom in the kings cross area to suit for tour pick-ups. This is exactly what I got. The room itself was tiny but it still managed to contain every possible convenience you would need. Air con, TV,... More
