Friendly and helpful staff
Good location 'in the thick of things'- a walk away from Kings Cross train station
Room clean, with linen supplied. Comfy beds.
Good kitchenette inclusions - plates/bowls/cutlery/toaster/kettle/microwave/bar fridge/tea+coffee/sink
The actual balcony was useful and cooler and good for eating meals at an outdoor table
Rooms not 'made up' each day so no-one is coming into your room (I think this is a pro rather than con)
Shared bathrooms were fine.
Plenty of restaurants/bars/cafes nearby.
Woolworths REALLY close for cheaper meal options/groceries.
The not so good:
Room was quite hot in summer with only a ceiling fan to alleviate the heat - had it on all night
Macleay St was a lot busier with traffic noise than I'd anticipated - meant we had to close the door to the balcony and the window to get to sleep, making everything hotter. I expect if you didn't have a room on the street this wouldn't be an issue.
Overall depends what you're looking for in accommodation. If comfort is key then look somewhere else. If value for money (in Sydney!) and location matter more then go for it.
