I get that it was cheap accommodation, but it did not present value for money, the room was very stuffy, The beds were awful, the mattress on the single bed was either 1/2 foam mattress & 1/2 innerspring or in need of replacement and the mattresses on the bunk beds were worse, and beds constantly creaked when sat on.

In fairness, my friend booked this place for a night with 6 girlfriends (in our forties). I would not have chosen it. None of us could cope with the shared bathroom and chose to forego a shower (.deodorant and perfume does wonders!). The room had six single beds including two bunks. One sink. One TV. A heater that had a... More

This place has the vibe of a bail hostel (not that I’ve stayed in one but I can use my imagination). The room was basic. No bathroom (this was shared) or toilet. Staff were not friendly and no facilities to speak of. There was an outside seating area where I worked but this closed at 9pm. Why? Not sure, but... More

There are a few reasons why I would never stay here again: (1) there is no way to get to any of the rooms except by climbing very steep stairs - not ideal for someone with bad knees, (2) our room contained two bunk beds and a single bed, with no hanging space or a set of drawers in which... More

First thing is first! The staff are lovely and friendly, it is in a great location, it is conveniently priced and breakfast was good for value! HOWEVER, I am a bit of a princess when it comes to accomodation and normally travel 4-5 star. This was a business trip and I was left uncomfortable and stressed. It is the week... More

Great location, just off Darling Harbour. Rooms are a good size and clean, so are the shared bathrooms. It's in a quiet spot and is a good place to base yourself from for exploring sydney. In an expensive city, Woolbrokers is good value for money.

I stayed here for two nights with my sister in September and the room we had was clean and serviced daily. People were friendly and helpful. Nice spot too, close enough but far enough away with the city a short walk over darling harbour away. Would recommend.

We stayed here 7 nights over New Years. We paid about $1200 altogether which is reasonable over New Years in Sydney - except this isn't a hotel. On our last night, we were woken at about 3.35AM to someone knocking loudly on our door, once the knocking had stopped we looked out of our room quietly to see someone wearing... More

good location. great value. looks like it had a recent makeover and although old, is very neat and tidy. Shared bathrooms very clean. Service is friendly. Nice little dining and outdoor area. Stayed with my family of four. Happily stay again.
