MacLeay Lodge is quite well situated. The room was clean even if it was a bit old (part of its charms). The people were kind and helpful. I recommnd this place if you don't want to go to a backpackers place.

Excellent receptionnists, Benoit and Tracy who gave us very good information about Sydney. The hotel is ok for a moderate budget, beds are very confortable, toilets and bathroom are clean, close to Woolworths, only problem (doors banging loudly) also but this is not the hotel's fault there is a lot of noise outside just next to the hotel because of...

I arrived in Sydney from England and wanted a place to rest and chill for a few days before I went to a hostel. I can't fault the lodge, it's quiet and in a nice area. There is a woolworths a few minutes up the road so can buy your food and make it in the room. The room itself... More

Our stay here was a good one overall! Having booked a room with a shared bathroom it was a lovely surprise to be given one with our own private bathroom! Pretty clean and room was an okay size. Microwave was very handy as we were on a budget. The staff were super friendly and very helpful! The location of the... More

Small and clean rooms. Shared bathrooms. This is none smoking building. Great hospitality. If you need to book a taxi, just inform the concierge counter and they will do it for you with discounted price. Great location. Walking distance to Sydney Opera House and other landmarks. Will come again in future.

Considering the price, one can't complain about the facilities, although it got tiring carrying luggage up and down three flights of stairs. Discarded furniture was tucked into every corner, not in our way, but didn't add to whatever little decor this place manages to muster. Communal bathroom was a bit unclean, wearing sandals in there is a must.

Dear Michael - thank you for taking the time to review us. We apologize if the bathrooms were anything but spotless & do hope you will give us a chance to redeem ourselves in the future. Also, thank you for the good rating despite those stairs! More

This was the 3rd hotel i stayed in (1 week each) during my hotel hopping after an 0/s holiday while apartment hunting. I got a single room for 7 days on booking.com for 680. Very good value for single travellers to sydney, but note that the single rooms are very small and the bathrooms are shared. That said, all the... More

First of all Potts Point is a fantastic area to stay in even if it´s a good walk to reach downtown of Sydney. I do not know if the people living here agree or will express it in the same way but Potts Point is a mix of posh, dirt and kitsch which makes the area very interesting. So a... More
