“Not worth it except the location”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

The only thing that I liked about this hotel was its proximity Sydney's CBD and the fact that it is walking distance from Museum Metro station that made the commute very easy within Sydney. But that's where the positives end. The rooms are the size of a closet - scratch that, I think my closet is bigger than the room we were given. We took the shared bathroom, which was a couple of rooms away and now I wish we hadn't. The shower came down in trickles and was either too hot or too cold - so much for optimum. The bathroom had an odd smell, which I can only hope was temporary. The staff were not as friendly as some of the other places we have stayed at and quite unprofessional. The breakfast was a part of our package but it was completely basic - toast and cereal.

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.

Room Tip: Choose a room near the bathrooms and at the 3rd level where the pantry is at

We where greeted by a strange and not very professional receptionist. The room what disgusting, the balcony door that didn't open would have been prob best kept close anyway. There where used cotton buds and cigarettes all over. Worst of all, there are no bathrooms in the room. The communal bathroom is down the hallway and its like it was in very poor conditions. Needless to say that we didn't end up staying there. I don't think I've ever been to a hotel that doesn't have a bathroom in the room.

We stayed at Y Hotel for a week. It's located within the city, and it really is a great location. HydePark is across the street and Museum station a mere 3mjnute walk away. The hotel offers various types of rooms for travelers with different budgets. The staff were pleasant and helpful. Every day, the cleaning staff would replace used towels with fresh, clean ones and also replenished the toiletries. The toilet was also very clean.

The room might be a bit small for some, but it was spacious enough to put our luggage without having to maneuver awkwardly around furniture. The television and tea/coffee-making facilities are stored within the cupboard (excellent use of space, I thought). There's an ironing board and iron too.

Overall it was a pleasant experience. Definitely recommended for the budget-conscious (:

Room Tip: Try to ask for a room that's not facing the street, or at least one that's on a higher floor...

I booked the four-bed dorm and was lucky enough to get the room to myself as it was low-peak season. The beds were proper single beds and not bunks, and the bed linens were fresh and clean. The room I got was very close to the showers, adding to the convenience. The bathrooms were kept clean and dry as well. There is also a shared kitchenette on that floor and a vending machine. Breakfast is very simple but complementary. For a place right in the middle of town, it's hard to beat the price. It would be great if in future they will think of replacing the carpeting with laminated boards or similar; that would freshen up the place.

Stayed here only one night when I arrived in Sydney. Staff was nice enough to let me check in very early. A very basic room with shared bathroom, but all was very clean. This hotel is within walking distance to everything from train stations to the Opera House. Only downside I experienced is that the room only had sheer curtains, so never really got dark.

We stayed here as part of a world trip, our stay was over Christmas/New Year.
Foolishly as the hotel was fully booked on NYE, we opted to change hotels for the remaining 5 days. I now wish we had just stayed in the other hotel for the night and gone straight back to the Y!

For the price it cost's to stay here, we werent expecting much. But much to our surprise it was a very pleasnt stay.

I havent got anything bad I could say about the hotel. So if you want a good value hotel in a great location, this is it!
