wow what can I say other than totally disappointed in all areas of hospitality. The room was small the bar fridge was hot and sounded like a washing machine. The window was broken and I could not stop the draft on a cold winters night. they had a paper thin curtain with a huge security light 2 meters away so... More

My girlfriend didn't agree with me in the beginning, but later she agreed this was the worst hotel we have ever been in. It is very budget hotel since the hotels in Sydney are very expensive. Location was the main reason we chose to stay here twice, in the beginning and at the end of the 3-week-trip to south-east Australia.... More

Central location close to museums, trains, restaurants, parks, that is the good news. Staff is friendly, but rooms are small, and dark. There is a bar underneath (can be noisy) and prices are (even for Australia) high. Probably not easy to find an alternative for a budget traveller.

When I arrived the check-in desk was not immediately evident - apparently it's all done at the bar. The website I booked the room through (booking.com) did not make it clear enough that the bathroom was a shared facility. For the price of the room -$95/night - I would not have made the booking had I known this to be... More

I arrived at 1:15pm and was told to come back at 2pm.. This got me off on the wrong foot as I'd just flown in from melbourne to a super hot sydney day and just wanted to get changed. Anyway- the looked after my bags well, and got checked in at 2pm without an issue. Lady that checked me in... More

Booked this hotel on a Thursday night as I needed a room where my mates and I could crash after a long day watching the test cricket. We weren't sure where the reception was and it was awkward checking in at the bar around 7pm when it was busy, but the bar girl was very lovely and efficient. Our room... More

Basic room, quite small and dark but clean. Reception non existent so if you arrive when attached bar is closed you've no chance of getting in. Came to the rescue of 4 sets of travellers who'd booked and couldn't gain entry as 'reception' closed. Close to all touristy things and safe area. Would probably go back if I had a... More

First of all, I can't believe people writing reviews are bagging out the manual doors on the elevator! I thought they were great. Took me back in time. For this price, in this location you can't expect the room to be top quality. First the bad things that may bother the "fussy" traveller. The fridge wasn't turned on, the shelf... More
