Stayed at this property 12 months ago and little has changed, rooms are just what I assume is just legal size with no refinements, no tea or coffee,no amenities at all really. The kitchen has 2 over crowded fridges,1 small microwave that you might you might have to stand in line to use, it took me 50 minutes to feed... More

Friendly check in, also helpful with city travel options, however dirty air conditioner filters, dust piled up behind bed head, and was not impressed to find a dirty used crack/meth pipe next to bed. However staff were very apologetic and dealt with it immediately it still made my stay an unhappy one.

Sydney is an expensive city but it is such an amazing city who wouldn't pay handsomely to be there. Ibis Budget is small and compact but clean, cheerful and with friendly service. Rooms are very small but functional. Location is superb right in the Cross with shops, food places and best of all the train station 300 metres up the... More

The location is excellent, we walked everywhere from double Bay to Circular Quay, there are many excellent bars and restaurants nearby and the Cross is a stones throw away if you want to catch the death throes of sleaze. The rooms are about backpacker standard. They were clean and well maintained with absolutely no frills. No fridge, no jug no... More

We found the hotel rooms dirty. The walls all needed a good wipe and the toilets smelt disgusting! The plus was the staff especially the young girl on reception were very friendly and helpful. We chose this hotel as we did not know Sydney area at all and thought the location to train and public transport would be good.

This is a wierd reception but once past that the hotel is good. The rooms are small but adequate and well presented. No free wifi but as I booked this as a mystery hotel on Wotif for $130 it was good value in a good location

We stayed in this hotel for two nights, and although the rooms were without an ensuite, the proximity to the shared bathroom created no problems. The manager and part owner Sam, was so helpful and friendly as were his staff. Nothing was to much trouble, the rooms were clean, tidy, and large enough to provide real comfort. We were so... More

My sister and I spent 6 nights at this hotel. The first room we had to have, as no other was available, was a tiny cubicle with 4 bunk beds jammed in. This was totally unacceptable as there was no room to even open or unpack a suitcase - and we were only 2 people - not four! The 2nd... More

Great view of harbour bridge etc from out 5th floor room good clean room with ensuite which was adequate for our needs - we wanted to be out & about in Sydney so didn't need all the extras - air conditioning was a great bonus as the temperatures soared. Lovely friendly, helpful staff
