Y Hotel is located at a wondrous area that is merely a few streets and blocks away from the CDB area. You can actually walk to the CBD, including the Royal Botanic Garden, Town Hall and even the harbours. If not, you can always take the train from Museum Station which is a few minutes walk away from the hotel. There are a couple of cafes around the hotel and a supermarket right opposite it, not to mention a clinic and chemist round the corner. St. Vincent Hospital is just a few minutes drive from it(Had to get down there at night for my sprained ankle:/)
Amenities wise, again, it's really just the basic. Shared bathroom is clean and big with 2 toilet cubicles and 2 showering cubicles. A hand dryer, towelette dispenser and a hair dryer are provided. Our room was near the bathrooms so it was as if we own the bathrooms. hahah. But fret not, there are many bathrooms on each level.
On the 3rd level, there's a small pantry with a microwave to heat up your packed food. There's a sink, a water dispenser providing boiling water, utensils, plates, a fridge and an ice machine. Simple again.
In our room, there's a tv, mini fridge, safe locker and some hangers. Not much, but still to our satisfactory.
Breakfast is just toast, juices, milk, coffee and tea, and cereal. Not much again, but nice and filling.
I would say the hotel staffs weren't exactly friendly and nice. Just okay. Some are a bit emotionless and can appear rude and harsh at times.
Nevertheless, for the price we've paid, I would say it's a nice hotel to stay in if you're not expecting much. Again, nice, plain, basic, simple. Sweet.
