I booked this hotel due to its location (good) and price (too much for what it is), but also by filtering results by taking out HOSTELS. Turns out this place is nothing else but a hostel, regardless of its name. And not even a good one! The shared bathrooms are below hostels standards, the rooms are small, old, smelly... The... More

Never before have I felt so unsafe in a hotel. My friend and I, being two young females just staying for one night, felt the need to push the hanging wardrobe rack and the bedside table up against the door. The place smells like old detergent, and we used the bathrooms at the bars we were at before we stayed... More

Ok, this is a basic hotel which has been acquired by Merivale, perhaps deliberately running the place down before future a development plan ??? - but it did have character, there were actually things we liked: 1. great central location 3. friendly helpful staff 3. old fashioned opening windows 4. roof top area 5. laundry & self serve kitchen with...

I just spent 3 god awful days at the Wynyard. The "continental" breakfast is an exaggeration and a half. Cereal, toast and milk are available in the kitchen area. There is absolutely no service. The room, toilets and bathroom are basic and there is no elevator. All this I could deal with. What was horrible is that they have magnet... More

Excellent place. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were able to check in early (10:30 am) and they upgraded our room to family room (much larger). They also let us keep our room on the day of checking out, until 5 pm (to store our luggage). Please ignore the negative feedback regarding this hotel because I genuinely think... More

Tiny rooms with almost no furniture. Kitchen is too small to properly cook. The place is not so clean, but nothing worse than old pubs when we were there. Very little staff , so not Much service. Location is great, overall we were happy because of the price.

Hotel was in a great location, just a short 5 min walk to Darling Harbour and 10 minute walk to Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House. For one guy that was out from 7am through 10pm one night, it was perfect, because low cost, clean bed and close to everything. If you plan on spending anytime in your hotel room... More

If you don't mind grubby shared bathrooms with doors that don't close and nothing in your room except 1 wooden chair, a fridge and an old TV sitting on top of the fridge, then you might consider this place. The location is fantastic, just a few minutes to rail, buses and ferries. The rest is very substandard. We dropped off... More
