4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

We weren't interested in driving or parking in this very busy section of Sydney, so although it's more hostel style, this was great for my son and I. We each had our own bed and a place to park the car for our entire stay.

This is the worst place to stay in Newtown. Do not do it to yourself. It cost $100 per night which is a massive rip off for a room the size of a large cleaners cupboard and a shared bathroom which was the size of my kitchen pantry. Spend a little more and go stay somewhere, anywhere, else.

Well, for 1 night in Sydney before flying it's very convenient. We booked a room with private bathroom, it was very clean but very small and very dated but this is Newtown on a budget. On the Main Street so every type of eatery imagineable is right outside the front door. Free WiFi in the lobby worked perfectly and although... More

It is a very basic room and amenities but it is very affordable for inner Sydney. It is in the heart of funky Newtown with heaps of restaurants and boho shops and only 8 minutes by train to Central. Yes it is not on the harbour, but it has a cool Sydney vibe.
