Very helpful staff and polite. When we arrived they made it as simple as possible and were so helpful. The room was spotless.breakfast was more than adequate and better than some we've had! Again helpful staff. The hotel was noisy at times as there were many backpackers there, but not enough to stop me sleeping or to cause a complaint.... More

This is a budget hotel - the room was very basic with only the essentials but it was very clean as was the bathroom. The bed was comfortable and had a good nights sleep without too much noise. The location is very good close to the harbour.

I can only agree with all the bad reviews about this hotel. Most uncomfortable bed I have ever tried to sleep in and the shower room no bigger your average wardrobe. The one pillow was no thicker than a towel. Meals were advertised but the dining room looked more school canteen from the sixties. We would never consider staying here... More

If you want a good nights sleep and room to move then don't stay here. It is noisy with walls which could Double as shower curtains. I could hear every conversation in the next room and was unable To sleep due to the noisy guests throughout the hotel. There was no attempt by hotel staff to control young drinkers who... More

This was a nice hotel for family or couples if your on a budget. Staff were very accommodating and give information about places to go through. And on our stay we are booked overlooking Sydney harbor bridge and Sydney Opera House which was really great especially at night where you can see fireworks and my kids like it so much.

I have stayed in better hostels in Mumbai than this decrepit excuse for a "hotel". If there is such a thing as a hotel license, it should be immediately revoked. The hallways are absolutely disgusting. Used cotton buds are everywhere and the sheets are stained beyond belief. Do not stay here!
