I stayed there just for one night, before catching a flight to Fiji. For the price I paid, the room was good. Big and confortable bed, lcd, a desk, air conditioning and private bathroom. Everything was clean perfectly so nobody could complain. The top if you need a short stay for a cheap price.

For the money, this is a suitable hotel. The location is fabulous, you can walk to the airport. You can walk to the train station and go straight to Darling Harbor or Sydney Harbor. Walk to the Mascot station, the fare is cheaper. There is a 24 hour McDonalds next door with free wi-fi. Bring your own shampoo, hotel does... More

Sydney airport accommodation is expensive and this is one of the only reasonably priced family options nearby. Its not expensive and people shouldn't be surprised its fairly utilitarian. We got caught by the Sydney airport curfew and had to stay a night prior to flying out the following day. We caught a shuttle from the International terminal ($6 a head)... More

Easy five minute walk to and from Airport, 10 minute walk to Botany road for multiple restaurants , very basic rooms clean and quiet for early morning flights , noise kicks in from jet engines around 5am . Value at around $99 per night otherwise hotels including breakfast are a better deal

Room was hot, small and dingy, bed was really uncomfortable, saggy on one side lumpy on the other. Shower floods the bathroom leaking onto the carpet in the room. Positive is that it is close to the airport (even walking distance). We stayed overnight for an early flight the next morning, which was convenient. Staff were friendly. There are vending... More

We booked a night at this hotel due to the fact that we had a really early morning flight (leaving hotel at 4:30am) so we weren't overly picky about our accommodation. However, once I got to the room, I was met with a lot of dissatisfaction. First of all, there was a stain that looked like blood on the edge... More

hotel was what it said budget. Bed was very comfortable room ok but basic of course. Bathroom was the biggest letdown as amazing how they fitted a toilet, shower and basin in the space. It does the job but squishy. Staff were friendly. If you like the creature comforts of fridge, tea making etc this may not be the style... More

Basically this is a tired, run down less than clean hostel. There was no tea or coffee making facilities. I didn't feel comfortable walking around the area on my own at night. This limited my eating options to MacDonalds and KFC. The bed was comfortable and the room had a TV. The paintwork was dirty with areas of peeled paint.... More

Location good, but room basic: very small; small window that doesn't open; shower curtain too short so that the bathroom floor was continually flooded; just one chair in a room for 4 people; no kettle, cups, fridge or hair dryer
